Biographical/Historical Note

Tau Epsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., one of nine AKA chapters in the metropolitan Atlanta Area, began as a vision of Veronica L. Ransom in January 1991. To make this vision a reality, The Ivy Twines Interest Group was established on May 18, 1991. The group concentrated its efforts on the reactivation of Alpha Kappa Alpha members and identified the South Fulton County area of Atlanta as the location for this new chapter.. Having met all requirements, The Ivy Twines Interest Group was chartered as Tau Epsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. on November 16, 1991, becoming the seventh graduate chapter of the organization in the metropolitan Atlanta area.

The Chapter began with twenty-three women with a common desire and willingness to work together in the organization and the community. Today, there are over one hundred members in the Tau Epsilon Omega Chapter.

As a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, America's first Greek-letter organization for Black women, Tau Epsilon Omega Chapter embraces the purpose of the sorority by "giving service to all mankind". The Chapter that is "large enough to serve, but small enough to care", has many programs which address education, health, family, economic empowerment and the arts. It also sponsors fund raising events which provide funds for service projects to the community and scholarships for the students.

In its eight-year existence the Chapter has received many awards and accolades, developed and promoted international programs, and continues to be a vital part of the East Point/College Park community it serves.
