Historical Divine Nine Sorority Aligns Partnership to Expose Members and Affiliates to Opportunities with the U.S. Army
(CARY, N.C.) February 9, 2021: Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. (SGRho), a historically Black Greek-Lettered Organization (BGLO), today announced an impactful new partnership with the United States Army (U.S. Army). In concert with other Divine Nine sororities and fraternities within the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), the partnership aims to help further the Army’s objective of developing, mentoring and diversifying the best and brightest talent in America,
“This partnership affords Sigma Gamma Rho a chance to expose our members and affiliates to the many opportunities that the U.S. Army provides,” states Rasheeda S. Liberty, International Grand Basileus of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. “In our most recent years, we have focused efforts on expanding member benefits to those who have proudly served or are currently serving our country. Through this alignment, we can have even greater impact and we look forward to including the U.S. Army in our programmatic thrusts and events through our Centennial.”
The partnership will focus on mutually shared objectives that will have national impact and enduring efforts. By leveraging the NPHC, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other Non-Federal Entities (NFEs), the collaboration will produce strategic outreach and engagement experiences that will mentor young men and women, present ROTC scholarships and build a community of diverse talent that is capable of joining the Army and achieving their aspirations and/or defined ideals of success.
“Learning of this partnership between the U.S. Army and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. fills me with pride,” exclaims SGRho Soror Tezra Woody, Esq, who served 23 years and retired as an Army Major. “Both organizations have contributed so much to my personal and professional development; I would not be who I am without them. I am thrilled to know these two mentors are aligning resources in a partnership that will offer young aspiring leaders the same opportunities afforded to me in my youth. Congratulations to the Army and to the Sisterhood!”
