Sigma Gamma Rho’s Youth Symposium

By Megan Davis

The Truth Contributor


The Iota Theta Sigma Alumnae Chapter of the Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. held its annual Youth Symposium on Saturday, March 10th at the MLK Academy for Boys. With the theme “Creating Connections: The Building Blocks of Leadership”, the focus was equipping youth with the competencies necessary for strong leadership, enhancing their understanding of being accountable and inspiring.  The sorority, whose sisterhood is founded on the principles of being “Intentional, Impactful and Measurable,”  reached nearly 50 young ladies and young men during this event.

As a part of this one day program, James Devine, a teacher at MLK Academy, was awarded the 2018 Seven Founders’ Educator Professional Development Award for going above and beyond the call of duty to provide quality education for students of color. In addition, Devine will receive funding to support  professional development programming or  supplies for his classroom.  

Founded on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana by seven schoolteachers, in 1922, the organization became incorporated in 1929. The Sigma Gamma Rho, Inc. mission is to enhance the quality of life for women and their families in the U.S. and globally through community service,  and civil and social action. Their goal is to achieve greater progress in the areas of education, health awareness, and leadership development. This annual youth symposium supports their overall mission and vision and because of the  partnerships with the YMCA and the Youth Opportunities Program (YOP), they were able to continue their efforts in keeping this mission and vision alive.
