100 Years of Service

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® Kappa Omega Chapter Celebrates with the Atlanta Community

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® Kappa Omega Chapter was chartered on March 1, 1923, and celebrates 100 years of providing service and leadership to the Atlanta community. A group of 10 Alpha Kappa Alpha women were compelled by their own experiences to organize the first graduate chapter in the state of Georgia.

Kappa Omega Chapter was fortunate that among the 10 charter members was Marie Woolfolk Taylor, one of the original founding members of Alpha Kappa Alpha at Howard University in 1908, when life began for this great sisterhood. Currently, the Kappa Omega Chapter membership has grown to over 500 members. Leadership was provided by a succession of 42 talented, strong, and committed leaders who served as Kappa Omega Chapter presidents. Currently, Bridgette Grant serves as the 43rd president.

Kappa Omega Chapter served as the catalyst for growth and expansion of the sorority’s footprint in Georgia. Today there are 17 graduate and nine undergraduate chapters in Metro Atlanta. Service and sisterhood have been the cornerstone of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® since 1908 and Kappa Omega since 1923. Kappa Omega’s rich legacy of service galvanized its membership to lead on the front lines of change, education, and advocacy.

Kappa Omega Chapter will kick off its centennial with one of many service projects during the year beginning with the distribution of 1,200 “Pretty Packs” filled with much needed feminine hygiene products for girls in the community. A Wreath Laying Ceremony Pilgrimage to honor Marie Woolfolk Taylor will be held on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, at Historic Oakland Cemetery. On March 4, 2023, the chapter will hold their Centennial Gala Celebration at the Georgia Aquarium.
