On June 26, 2021, 37 educated and dynamic women living in and around surrounding communities south of Charlotte chartered Alpha Alpha Chi Omega chapter under the leadership of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Director, Jennifer King Congleton. Alpha Alpha Chi Omega is the first chapter chartered during her administration as well as the first four letter chapter in the Marvelous Mid-Atlantic region.
Our goal is to promote and implement the program and ideals of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® within the Communities of Anson and Union Counties in North Carolina.
This awesome journey began in July 2018 with a vision of five sorors (Lanelle D. Carr, Kam A. McDonald, Sandra Harkness, Janet Crowder Carlisle and Deborah Eddie) who wanted to provide exemplary service and make an impact in these underserved communities. As an interest group, prior to chartering, the Prestigious Pearls of Anson and Union Counties, were able to successfully provide over 40 programs in-person and virtually for over 2,200 hours of service and raised over $10,000 for scholarships.
