Alpha Kappa Alpha, founded in 1908 at Howard University in Washington, D.C., is a sorority made up of nearly 300,000 college-trained women who are bound by the bonds of sisterhood and empowered by a commitment to servant-leadership that is both domestic and international in its scope. Epsilon Xi Omega, the sorority’s first San Diego graduate chapter, was chartered in 1949 and now has just over 150 members. Epsilon Xi Omega’s local activities include providing scholarships to high school students going to college, youth leadership development and the annual debutante ball, which started in 1955. Dr. Donna L. Cook is the chapter’s current president.
