Chapter History

 

Through the vision of Mu Kappa Omega’s two charter members, Pamiel Gaskin and Delores Tarver Smith, and the dedication and diligence of a group of visionary women, the Missouri City chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was formed. 

On June 24, 1978, before the 48th International Conference, which was hosted at the Albert Thomas Convention Center in Houston, the chapter was chartered. The chartering ceremony was officiated by then South Central Regional Director, Deralyn Riles Davis of Fort Worth, Texas.  

There were forty three reactivated members as charter members of Mu Kappa Omega Chapter. The photo below is of the first officers of Mu Kappa Omega.

The membership of this chapter includes talented and professional women, who are dedicated to carrying on the traditions, ideas, and goals established by the founders. As community leaders, the women of Mu Kappa Omega Chapter have pooled their resources and talents to help improve the quality of life in Fort Bend County and the metropolitan Houston Area.

The chapter has grown over the years. We currently have seven hundred eighteen (718) members, and we continue to grow.  Members continue to uphold the mission – "Members shall cultivate high scholastic achievement; ethical standards and personal development while supporting family unity and implementing effective programs that positively impact the communities we serve."
