Welcome! We are excited to welcome you to the website for Delta Theta Omega Chapter (DTO) of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®. While visiting the site we encourage you to learn more about both our local and international history, leadership, and the service to our community that we so proudly share. Locally we are continuing to celebrate 75 years of service noted with a beginning date back in 1946. In November of that year, thirteen “empowered” women came together to charter our beloved DTO. As we embark upon this new journey in this new year, we are united as a sisterhood of over 400 members. The foundational platform established that many years ago remains strong and encouraging as we continue to make a positive impact on the community we serve.
Internationally, our foundation dates back as far as 1908 when our Founders, (another group of “empowered” women) established the platform “service to all mankind” on the campus of Howard University. Since that time there have been many leaders who were at the forefront of many accomplishments for which we claim notoriety throughout the world today.
Within this website we hope you will note we are stronger today than ever before because of the challenges and uncertainties we have continuously faced over the past few years. We are stronger because we don’t accept ‘excuses’ but operate as EMPOWERED women dedicated to carry on the legacy of those who traveled the journey before us. Additionally, we invite you to pay close attention to our rich heritage as the first and finest Black Greek-letter sorority as we continue to grow and serve.
Excuse or EMPOWERMENT, we choose the latter of the two. As we showcase our service through the implementation of our various international programs right here in our local community, we feel assured you will agree with our choice. Again, we are excited that you are visiting our website with an interest in learning about us, and we are pleased to share it with you. Enjoy!
