tearte-profileIt is a privilege to lead the sisterhood of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. on our Journey to Centennial!

The extremely talented Sorors serving on the Centennial Commission are working passionately to insure that our Founders are commemorated at this milestone in our history. I invite you to join the sisterhood as we strengthen our resolve to serve our communities; to pursue scholarly endeavors; to strengthen our bonds of sisterhood; and to “Be Finer in 2020!

I hope to spend time with you at various stops along the way and look forward to sharing stories of the past as we plot our future path.
