Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated had its humble beginnings as the vision of nine college students on the campus of Howard University in 1908. Since then, the sorority has flourished into a globally-impactful organization of over 265,000 college-trained members, bound by the bonds of sisterhood and empowered by a commitment to servant-leadership that is both domestic and international in its scope.

As Alpha Kappa Alpha has grown, it has maintained its focus in two key arenas: the lifelong personal and professional development of each of its members; and galvanizing its membership into an organization of respected power and influence, consistently at the forefront of effective advocacy and social change that results in equality and equity for all citizens of the world.

Lambda Nu Omega Chapter

“It only takes one drop of water to start a waterfall”.

In 1976, as the United States celebrated its bicentennial, the thoughts of chartering a chapter milled in the mind of Lake County resident, Isabelle Buckner and there Lambda Nu Omega was chartered in Lake County Illinois. Lambda Nu Omega chapter was distinguished as the first African American Sorority chapter in Lake County Illinois, upon its charter on May 27, 1977 at the Waukegan Public Library.   Today, Lambda Nu Omega Chapter has over 50 active members and continue to serve the entrepreneurial, economic, social, physical and mental health needs of the underserved people within the Lake County cities of Zion, Waukegan, North Chicago, Gurnee and Round Lake, Illinois. Lambda Nu Omega continues to be a beacon of succor to the constituents of Lake County. We persevere in the trek to capture a vision fair and are pledged to render service to all mankind.
