Omicron Gamma Omega Chapter History
It all started in January 1982, when Barbara Bowens, Constance Brown and Mary Louise Capers began talking about establishing an Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Chapter in Glen Burnie, Maryland. From this humble beginning, the Glen Burnie Interest Group was organized. In a relatively short span of time, the membership grew to twenty. Such projects as the Food Bank, the Little Miss Ivy Pageant, Project for the Elderly, Focus on the Arts and Youth, the Tutorial Program, and the Scholarship Program began to create a highly favorable impact on the community.
It was a joyous occasion when Omicron Gamma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was chartered on March 24, 1984 by Ruth C. Easley, North Atlantic Regional Director. The following became charter members of Omicron Gamma Omega Chapter: Barbara Bowens, Francesca Brooks, Constance Brown, Mary Capers, Betty Edwards, Z. Mae Fenrick, Linda Felton, Margaret Flamer, Dorothy Green, Berlie Henderson, Phyllis Kirkland, Zell McDonald, Gracie Mebane, Patricia Pinder, Ruth Pinder, Queenie Raymond, Mary Showell, Delores Smith, Patricia Summerville and Dorothy Weddington.
Over 30 years later, Omicron Gamma Omega Chapter remains a steadfast organization providing education, health, and family services to the Glen Burnie community.
