Dedication Defined By A Determined Sisterhood...
The roots of Mu Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.® can be traced to her inspired inception in September 1977. Nurtured by dedication to the cause of sisterly love, the idea eventually became a reality. Through an act of fate, AKA members Christine Heath and Dora Robinson met by chance at a Fort Hood Chapel service. Their conversation revealed similar views and genuine sisterly dedication to the Alpha Kappa Alpha cause. This inspired a later meeting of the two in Dora’s home, in which an exchange of ideas and unfaltering determination led to the materialization of the first Alpha Kappa Alpha Interest Group in the Killeen / Fort Hood area. One cold Sunday afternoon on November 20, 1977, the fire of the Alpha Kappa Alpha spirit was rekindled. The torch was once again passed on for united service to all mankind. Through the combined efforts of AKA members Christine Heath, Ruth Tomlin, Maria Douglas, Dora Robinson, Fannie Kay, and Juanita Huckaby the necessary work began with the hopes of obtaining a charter.
The goal was finally realized. A formal ceremony was conducted on June 17, 1978 at the Holiday Inn of Killeen by the South Central Regional Director, Mrs. Derelyn Davis, who presented the charter to our chapter. The charter members are Delores Atkins, Joyce A. Davis, Christine H. Diggs, Maria Douglas, Patricia Gray, Pamela A. Hall, Juanita Huckaby, Valerie Hudgins, Delores Jenkins, Fanny Kay, Dennise King, Brenda Lee, Grace Mosely, Estella Murray, Sharon Dennis, Dora Robinson, Ruth Tomlin, and Yvonne Winn.
Since then, the Mu Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.® has been dedicated to the continuous efforts of Exemplifying Excellence through Sustainable Service. Planting many seeds of prosperity throughout society, the main investment remains focused on education. The chapter captures the essence of community outreach by scholarship awards of $10,000 annually, supporting HBCUs, staying abreast on health issues, strengthening families, environmental ownership, and addressing the issue of global poverty in the community.
The torch continues to be passed on through the years, by merit and culture, with service to all mankind.
