Chapter History

In 1939, eleven visionary women began the process of chartering a chapter in Paducah, KY.  This process was delayed by the 1937 flood, but these determined women continued ahead with grace and fortitude.  On February 18, 1939, Beta Omega Omega Chapter held its chartering service on the campus of West Kentucky Vocational School.

The chartering services were held in the library of West Kentucky Vocational School at 14th and Thompson Avenues, Paducah, Kentucky with the 7th National President and former Southeastern Regional Director,

Mrs. Maude Brown Porter presiding. 


The Eleven Charter Members:

 Elizabeth Coulter Story, Bettie Coulter, Beatrice Dawson, Mayme J. Egester, Margurite McGill, Minnie B. Hall,

Alice V. Weston, Mattie O. Strauss, Genevie Griffin, Henrietta Woodson, and Marthenia Peyton

 AKA History

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® had its humble beginnings as the vision of nine college students on the campus of Howard University in 1908. Since then, the sorority has flourished into a globally-impactful organization of nearly 300,000 college-trained members, bound by the bonds of sisterhood and empowered by a commitment to servant-leadership that is both domestic and international in its scope.

As Alpha Kappa Alpha has grown, it has maintained its focus in two key arenas: the lifelong personal and professional development of each of its members; and galvanizing its membership into an organization of respected power and influence, consistently at the forefront of effective advocacy and social change that results in equality and equity for all citizens of the world.
