On January 29, 1994, thirty aspiring professional women chartered the Upsilon Alpha Omega Chapter in Lawrenceville, Georgia. The group gathered to implement and support the international programs of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated as they pertain to the needs of Gwinnett County, Georgia. Today, Upsilon Alpha Omega, the first Black Greek-Letter organization in Gwinnett County, has made a significant impact on the community.

One of the chapter’s first challenges was to establish a scholarship for young women. Thus far, the chapter has awarded over $400,000 in scholarships to college-bound women. Upsilon Alpha Omega has been instrumental in promoting programs that emphasize the continued mission of service to all mankind.
