Sigma Gamma Rho Turns 90 and I'm Off to Celebrate

Photo by Jenee Darden
We have two big celebrations planned, one in Los Angeles and another in Indianapolis. Our sorority was founded at Butler University in Indy by seven black educators. But one of our founders, Mary Little,  is buried in Inglewood at an unmarked grave. We're going to honor her and give her a proper headstone. Anyone who has tried to start a business knows it isn't easy. Can you imagine not only starting an organization that has lasted 90 years but has grown to 90,000 members?  That's amazing.

I'm looking forward to celebrating this milestone and returning to LA. This is my first time back to LA since moving. I can't wait to see my friends.

 In keeping with our 90th celebration, do something for you this weekend! Why not celebrate something in your life--a job, happiness, new hairstyle, or just yourself. It doesn't have to be big. Do something for you and honor your achievement, no matter how big or small. Have a great weekend everyone!

    What sorority are you in? I feel like you've told me this before but please refresh my memory. :)
