Since the chap­ter’s in­cep­tion on May 27, 1967, Theta Omi­cron Omega has been ded­i­cated to the mis­sion of Al­pha Kappa Al­pha Soror­ity, In­cor­po­rated by ac­tively en­gag­ing and pro­vid­ing mean­ing­ful ser­vice to the North­west Ge­or­gia coun­ties of Bar­tow, Car­roll, Floyd and Polk.

The soror­ity’s mis­sion is to cul­ti­vate and en­cour­age high scholastic and eth­i­cal stan­dards, to pro­mote unity and friend­ship among col­lege women, to study and help al­le­vi­ate prob­lems con­cern­ing girls and women to im­prove their so­cial stature, to main­tain a pro­gres­sive in­ter­est in col­lege life, and to be of “Ser­vice to All Mankind”.

At its De­cem­ber meet­ing, chap­ter mem­bers brought about 150 canned foods to do­nate to the Grad Polk Stu­dent Suc­cess Cen­ter’s Food Pantry in Polk County.

The Grad Polk Stu­dent Suc­cess Cen­ter’s main goal is to pro­vide as­sis­tance for stu­dents and their fam­i­lies. The cen­ter is pro­vid­ing in-school ser­vices re­lated to aca­demic as­sis­tance, col­lege ad­mis­sion sup­port ser­vices, so­cial-emo­tional well­ness, psy­cho­log­i­cal sup­port, tar­geted tu­tor­ing, a food pantry, a cloth­ing closet, and coun­sel­ing.

The Grad Polk Stu­dent Cen­ter mo­bi­lizes staff mem­bers and part­ners within the com­mu­nity to equip its stu­dents to grad­u­ate. The Cen­ter pro­vides as­sis­tance with all the schools in Polk School Dis­trict.

“We were de­lighted to make a do­na­tion to the Grad Polk Stu­dent Suc­cess Cen­ter’s food pantry be­cause it is pro­vid­ing such a needed ser­vice to the schools in the Polk School Dis­trict” said Turner. “Stu­dents can ex­cel in school eas­ier if they are able to fo­cus on scholastic achieve­ment in­stead of on ba­sic needs such as when and what will be their next meal”.
