“It was a pleasure to horde a sisters here in Daytona Beach during Bethune-Cookman University,” pronounced Tracia Culver, boss of Gamma Mu Omega Chapter.  “By all accounts they truly enjoyed themselves and a liberality of a internal section members and a Daytona Beach community.”

Backpacks initiative
As partial of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s One Million Backpacks initiative, that has a idea of donating and distributing one million backpacks and associated propagandize reserve over a four-year period, discussion attendees donated a sum of 150 backpacks filled with propagandize reserve to be diluted among 3 Volusia County schools.  Local schools that perceived a backpacks were Palm Terrace Elementary, Daytona Beach; Edith Starke Elementary, DeLand; and Ortona Elementary, Daytona Beach.

Themed, “Connecting Our Pearls by Purpose, Passion, Perseverance and Performance,” a idea of a two-day discussion was to raise member believe and recognition of a sorority’s general programs and policies.

Also in assemblage was Daytona Beach Mayor Derrick Henry, who welcomed discussion attendees during a opening session.
