86 Years Ago

7 women

Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little, Dorothy Hanley Whiteside, Hattie Mae Annette Dulin Redford, Bessie Downey Rhodes Martin, Nannie Mae Gahn Johnson and Cubena McClure

Founded Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated on the campus of Butler University in a state then-known as Klandiana. These brave women pioneered in forming the organization I am a member of today. I joined in 2002, as my sorority celebrated 80 years. I felt REALLY old at the rededication ceremony with the current members of UF's undergraduate chapter. Even their advisor joined 4 years after me! Lol. Ah well. C'est la vie. They are very gung ho. Love it. I'm going to step practice tonight and tomorrow night. Glad to be back in the fold! Happy Founders Day, Sorors!!


Now if I could only get someone to do this work for me... any takers?

Bah.

Oh yeah and I'll likely be going to Tallahassee this weekend to see Hampton give FAMU the business so Stace get ready!!
