Message from Past International Grand Basileus Tearte

Dear Sorors,

tearte-profileNinety-five years ago on the campus of Howard University, five women stepped up to create an organization that would be action-oriented, scholastically advanced, engaged in their communities, and embody the true meaning of finer womanhood. They created this zealous organization that we all hold so dear to our hearts. Today as we honor our Founders’ and celebrate 95 years of service, we are also stepping into the next level of achievement, the Centennial. I am so excited to lead you as we launch our Journey to Centennial.

Over the next five years, we will be taking the time to recognize the greatness of our Founders , strengthen our principles, and exhibit to the world the community-conscious, action-oriented leaders Zeta Women are. Read more…
