These ladies are whom we recognize for creating this organization and whom set the stage for our continuing legacy. These visionary young women formed Gamma Alpha Omega, a community service-based sorority, with their focus not only being social issues, but to excel in school, motivate others in the community and around them, generate role models and eventually help develop strong leaders.
