ABOUT US

The Eta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®., established in 1922, is the first chapter of our international organization to be chartered in the metropolitan Louisville area. The chapter's commitment to education and the advancement of individuals is pivotal to the foundational belief of service to all mankind.

 

We maintain the values of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, by promoting high scholastic academic advancement, demonstration of professionalism, and representation of service in the community. The membership, comprised of distinguished women who boast excellent academic achievements and proven leadership skills, is involved in the global community through advocacy and service. Eta Omega is dedicated to improving the quality of life for citizens worldwide and promoting peace. Collectively, we utilize our resources to provide service to the community locally, regionally, and internationally. The chapter regularly partners with other organizations to achieve its goals of service to the community and all mankind.

 

Eta Omega impacts the lives of individuals worldwide through its implementation of our international programs.  Service and sisterhood have been the cornerstone of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® since 1908. With the theme Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood, the 2022-2026 administration seeks to build upon Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s rich legacy of service by galvanizing our sisterhood of more than 120,000 active members to lead on the front lines of change, education, and advocacy.

This administration has six initiatives. Strengthen Our Sisterhood will serve as the administration’s “Foundation Initiative” as we strengthen our bonds to support our service mission.  The remaining five initiatives will serve as the “Program Initiatives” which include:

  1. Empower Our Families

  2. Build Our Economic Wealth

  3. Enhance Our Environment

  4. Advocate for Social Justice

  5. Uplift Our Local Community

 

These initiatives are designed to improve the lives of those we serve. We will work collaboratively to maximize our outreach on progressive endeavors and consistently produce leaders who will advance our credo of service.

 

Both the Hortense B. Perry Foundation and Eta Omega have worked untiringly to be of service to all mankind.  The Hortense B. Perry Foundation, the charitable entity of our Chapter, is an educational foundation that provides scholarships and grants to college bound high school seniors who live in the Louisville Metro area. This is the primary purpose of the HBP Foundation, promotion of “high scholastic” achievement for high school girls and college women.  It also promotes and provides financial support for our international and local programs such as the Read-in, Little Miss AKA, Salute to Women Entrepreneurs, and LEAF, a program of encouragement and self-improvement for middle school girls.  To learn more about HBPF, please see the section titled “HBP Foundation”.

Finally, Eta Omega boasts proudly of being a local and world servant, and we are continually seeking women of high scholastic, ethical, and moral standards who also want to strive to do things that are worthwhile.  Our efforts are united, and because of that, the Eta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, is a strong, close-knit group of women who strive to make a difference in the lives of all people.  We are committed to serving ALL mankind.
