The Resilient Rho Theta Zeta Chapter

Rho Theta Zeta Chapter of Portage, Michigan was chartered on April 19, 1999. The following are charter members of Rho Theta Zeta: Keisha Barksdale, Ondraya Dixon, Renita Ellis, Bridgett Gibson, Joan Harris, Kelley Kellis, Monique (Ligons) Terry, Peggy McKnight, Sheila Parkman, Hillary Williams

Today, Rho Theta Zeta chapter is home to a diverse group of young, college educated, professional, and executive women dedicated to promoting the ideals of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood while working to improve the lives of men, women, children, and seniors through ZHOPE (Zetas Helping Other People Excel).  Our chapter continues to provide  members with opportunities to gain valuable knowledge, experience and the confidence needed to become responsible decision makers and leaders while continuing to be a positive force for change in our communities.

Since its chartering, our chapter has only grown  in the depth of service provided in the Portage and Kalamazoo communities. Our members volunteer, support and donate to various charitable organizations including the March of Dimes, Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo Art Hop, etc.

The chapter’s commitment to scholarship is far reaching and long standing as we endeavor to “Edify, Educate and Empower the Whole Woman” by changing women’s lives through leadership and education, thus, strengthening colleges and communities.
