Kappa Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.

The Kappa Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was established on July 28, 1936 in New York City by Sorors Juliette Boykins, Alma Bailey, Alma Jeffries, Eunice Jackson, Clara Coleman Liddle, Beulah Simpson Palmer, Augusta Strong North, Annabel Weston, and Fannie Cauldwell Williams.

Kappa Sigma is one of the oldest continuously active alumnae chapters in the northeast region and continues to strive to be the ever driving force of progress and change in its community. This chapter performs several community service projects with local schools, churches and homeless shelters and invites you to assist in their service and scholarship endeavors through volunteerism, donations, collaboration and sponsorship.

In line with the international theme, Kappa Sigma has implemented a local theme of "Being, Bonding and Building". This theme reflects the chapter's goal to consistently execute service endeavors, collaborate and develop relationships in the community and sustain sisterly ties with fellow Sorors, Greeks, community leaders and affiliates, while continuing to be active and visible providers of "Greater Service, Greater Progress" in our local community.
