Black History Knowledge Bowl

Smith Middle School won the sixth annual Black history Knowledge Bowl sponsored by Mu Omicron Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Feb. 22. The Knowledge Bowl was established to stimulate interest in African-American history, encourage student success, and recognize those students who demonstrate superior knowledge and recall of African-American history.

A Day of Reflection

“Committed to Sisterhood: Committed to Service” was the theme for members of Mu Omicron Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. during the chapter’s celebration of the 106th Founders’ Day and the 35th anniversary of the chapter. Members were welcomed by chapter president Lisa Norwood and greeted by Chapel Hill mayor Mark Kleinschmidt at The Rizzo Conference Center in Chapel Hill Saturday, Feb. 8.

Charter members and chapter members who have attained 50 years, 25 years, and life membership were acknowledged. Following brunch, the program included a dance performance, poetry and song. Charter and chapter members reflected on the continuance of serving the community since the founding of the sorority 106 years ago.
