The SGRhos are getting students college ready

November 12, 1922 is the founding date for Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Established on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, IN, it is created by seven young educators whose focus on making a positive impact on the community at large is done so under the motto of "Greater Service, Greater Progress".

Fast forward to March 24, 2001, as the "iconic" Iota Zeta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. is established by twelve women who want to make sure the sorority's impact is felt in their servicing area of the N Atlanta metro area and beyond. With education being a key component of the work they do, their forthcoming endeavor is helping provide a positive impact on the lives of high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors in providing them access to the tools and resources needed regarding their potential collegiate endeavors.

On Sunday, September 24, 2017 starting at 2pm, the chapter is sponsoring an ACT/SAT prep seminar. The program takes place at the Emory University AMUC (630 Means Drive in Atlanta, GA) and is facilitated by Creative Community Solutions, LLC.

The focus of the seminar is to provide students and parents hands-on exposure to the college process. This includes a compare and contrast of the ACT and SAT (the two main exams used as part of the college admissions process), general test taking tips for both exams (including sample questions), and an overview of the college admissions process.

The program is free and open to the general public. For those interested in participating, registration is required through Eventbrite by accessing ACT & SAT IZS; readers are encouraged to contact Dr. Buckhalter via email (

With a background in alumni-in-admissions and serving on related boards (at Wake Forest University), along with conducting similar workshops for high schools in Metro-Atlanta and the state of Tennessee, our company's leadership team is fully committed in working with organizations to help "make it happen". Combined with a solid track record of providing one-on-one as well as larger classroom instruction, the focus is for students and parents to walk away with a stronger understanding a point of reference regarding the particulars of the college admissions process, as it is not more competitive than in previous years.

Again, grounded in education-related programming, the members of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc, specifically the Iota Zeta Sigma Chapter, through their nationally recognized Rhoer Club (which provides young women the opportunity to learn more about their heritage as well as their potential for leadership) and related programs, are fully committed to community investment and empowerment. Combined with the efforts via the education-based "arm" of our company, we are truly focused on equipping and empowering as many as possible in helping them make it happen.

September 24, 2017 is yet another opportunity to do so; make it a point to be present and accounted for.
