MIAMI GARDENS, FL — Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Gamma Zeta Omega Chapter, decided to adopt Florida Memorial University (FMU) to fulfill one of their international program targets:  HBCU For Life/A Call To Action which supports all HBCUs.

Prior to this Reception on March 22, a meeting was held with Dr. Hardrick to discuss how Gamma Zeta Omega Chapter could have the most impact. They identified three main areas: (1) telling the story, (2) giving and (3) mentoring. Gamma Zeta Omega is in partnership with the W.I.S.H. Foundation, Inc.

“We will be offering internships, professional development and mentoring,” said Sharon Jones, FMU Alum, and AKA’s HBCU for Life/A Call To Action member.

The Adoption Reception was the beginning of a lasting relationship between Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Gamma Zeta Omega Chapter and Florida Memorial University.
