Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc embraces community outreach
Tau Omicron Chapter making an impact in the community, on campus
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – Southeast Missouri State University’s Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. Tau Omicron Chapter is a part of the divine 9.
The divine 9 is a collective of historically African American fraternities and sororities.
And SEMO’s Zetas are one of the organizations that are using service to help their community.
Zykiah Williams; Tau Omicron’s chapter president says they do what is needed.
“Somebody has to step up and do the work basically and we decided to be the ones to do their work to fulfill their need for whatever community whether there be women or older adults,” said Williams.
Kayla Powell, chapter sergeant of arms, has seen the impact their organization has made through their valentine’s day event.
The organization made cards and visited the elderly.
“So, I know in the future where we have done, we will have a positive change and they do want us to come back so we did affect them just by going there and showing their faces,” said Powell.
Williams also says that the organization also does things on campus to bring support to the students on campus.
“It’s just a safe space for women to come and we’ll just express their emotions and then meet other women on campus,” said Williams.
Williams says that it’s important for her and her sisters to represent their chapter in high regard because black sororities and fraternities are overlooked.
“We often get overlooked and people think that we can’t do the same great things that the other ethnicities on campus are doing,” said Williams.
