Excitement is underway as we embark on yet another sorority year. As usual, each new year sorority year comes with the eagerness to serve our community as well as fellowship with sisters, but this is no ordinary year for this 6-year old chapter. This will be the first time in Lambda Sigma Sigma’s history that the new year is started as a centennial chapter. With the induction of Spring 2018’s 36 Pearls of Perfection, the chapter has grown a considerable amount in not just numbers, but love and sisterhood. With dedicated leadership in place and the sorority year calendar booked with essential programs, this is sure to be a pRHOductive year for Lambda Sigma Sigma. Welcome back Sorors!

OPERATION BIG BOOK BAG 2018!!!
Each year, Sorors of Lambda Sigma Sigma are on fire to serve! The sorority year kicked off with one of our National Programs, Operation Big Book bag, with the mission as clear as ever before: “Greater Service, Greater Progress.” On July 28, 2018, members of LSS served alongside Councilman John Blount, of Henry County, to provide over 50 children with book bags and school supplies. There was a game truck on-site to add to the excitement, as well as a football toss and face-painting. Children and their families were also able to sign up for clubs and programs including Sigma Gamma Rho’s very own- Rhoer and Rhosebud clubs.The organization’s first event of the new sorority year, involved the group’s very focus- the Youth. Represented at the Henry County’s 4th Annual Back to School Expo, were over 20 vendors that dealt with children and family services.
Lambda Sigma Sigma’s table, graced a board displaying background history on the organization, and flyers promoting upcoming events. There were over 45 families who signed up to know more about what the sorority does and offers the community, as well as participate in future events, most notably, the Sigma Youth Symposium, which takes place every year in March. As always, there were plenty of photos taken presenting togetherness among members, as well as the networking efforts solidifying future partnerships. Among important figures present were city council members, and Gregg Street, radio disc jockey From V-103. What an exciting way to launch the new sorority year, as Sigma women are always eager to promote community outreach.

Congratulations to all Sorors who exemplify what it means to be a Pretty Poodle of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. The catch is, it takes more than pretty looks to be a Sigma woman. You have to work hard, and shine in a positive light which it turn, reflects positively for the sorority. The Seven Pearls of SGRho, started this organization in the regard for education and the importance of the Youth. It is with great pleasure that we celebrate the accomplishments of our very own Tara Williams and Teresa Smith, who were selected as Teacher of the Year at their respective schools. Being that our sorority was founded by school teachers, it’s a very special honor when we stay true to our origins and continue to bear witness to the greatness educators bestow. Teresa Smith, who is newly inducted on the Spring 2018 36 Pearls of Perfection, is Teacher of the Year 2017-2018 for Union Grove Middle School and Tara Williams, apart of Spring 2017’s 22 Karat Gold, has been named Teacher of the Year 2018-2019 at Mt. Zion Primary School.
Thank you Sorors for what you contribute to your schools and our committees. Continue to bluetifully represent Sigma Gamma Rho.
