I am honored to serve as the 12th president of the phenomenal Phi Lambda Omega Chapter. I am humble to lead a group of amazing and talented women who are committed to serving our community. Our sisterhood is warm and inviting and the cornerstone of who we are.
Our 2022-2023 theme is IVY Distinction ~ Innovation – Vision – You! This vision will epitomize a bond of genuine sisterhood, implement life-changing and impactful service programs, and impart transformational leadership development to our members. Our plans will focus on achieving our vision with excellence, collaboration, and inclusiveness. Together we will meet this challenge.
We will begin 2022 with a year of personal growth, service, and unity. We will move forward and continue our journey of sisterhood and service as we take ownership and pride in our L.E.G.A.C.Y.
Phi Lambda Omega Chapter has served the Memphis community for twenty-two years supporting the Alzheimer and Dementia Services of Memphis, National Kidney Foundation, American Heart Association, Hattiloo Theater, Refugee Empowerment Program, Boys and Girls Club of Memphis and many other servant leaders and community organizations. Annually, Phi Lambda Omega awards more than $20,000 in academic and community service scholarships to high school students in the Memphis community.
Phi Lambda Omega continues to support the vision of Dr. Glenda Glover, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s International President & CEO to deliver community service that aligns with our international Programs Targets.
