Chapter History


In 1989,  the following seven women had the vision and optimism to believe that they could expand “the presence of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®. in the Charlotte Metropolitan area with a direct focus on community service.” The Rho Psi Omega Chapter is forever indebted to them for actualizing that dream!
