Eta Alpha Sigma PHILOS
Eta Alpha Sigma would like to welcome our Philo Affiliates to the Sacramento Area.
In 1943 the Philo Affiliates, friends of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was organized in the Galveston-Houston area. Philos began as the Galveston Comrades.
The name of Sigma Comrades was changed to Sigma Philos, under the auspices of
Soror Maudest Steward, Basileus of Gamma Sigma Chapter, Houston, TX thus
creating Galveston’s Alpha Theta Sigma Philos and Houston’s Gamma Sigma Philos.
In 1980 the Philos were organized on a national level and have grown to represent hundreds of women organized on a regional level as well. The Philos have contributed countless hours of community service and thousands of dollars to aid Sigma Gamma Rho's aim to enhance the quality of life within every community.
In October 2014, Eta Alpha Sigma chartered a Philo chapter in Sacramento, California. We currently have 7 Philo members and are seeking new members. Please contact Mable Hawkins for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
