Iota Omicron Newsletter

January 2016

Volume 1, Issue 6

Hello Everyone,


Please explore our newsletter to obtain event updates regarding the Iota Omicron Chapter. We encourage your participation during our upcoming events, as well as those events taking place within the surrounding community. The late Maya Angelou, a honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., once said, "Nothing will work unless you do." Our community will not thrive, unless we all make a commitment to create change by volunteering our time and efforts.


Thanks for visiting.
