In recognition of the need for more minority participation on the governing process of Dekalb County and the need for focused and dedicated service to the Dekalb County minority community, a group of Alpha Kappa Alpha women met early in 1975 to discuss the possibility of organizing a chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha women in Dekalb County. The group formed an AKA interest group. In anticipation of chartering a chapter, the group focused its main community efforts on voter registration and assistance in low income families.
On June 26, 1976, Lambda Epsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was chartered.
Today, the chapter continues to grow from it's twenty-two chartering members to numbers exceeding three hundred working members. With an ever-increasing and abiding love for rendering "supreme service", Lambda Epsilon Omega Chapter looks forward to many, many years of service to her community.
