Sisterhood. SCHOLARSHIP. Service.
As an outstanding historically Black college for women, Spelman promotes the intellectual, ethical, and leadership potential of its students. The chapter hopes to solidify a "big sister" role to entering and current Spelman women by providing a support system, care packages, and financial support that can help students excel academically and become professional and community leaders.
Freshwomen Send Off
Every August the chapter hosts a dessert send off event for entering Spelman freshwomen and their families to provide guidance, advice and support as the women enter their matriculation through the college. The send-off provides an opportunity for the freshwomen and their families to ask questions. To further support their journey, the chapter awards book scholarships. In future years, we hope to financially support through larger multi-year scholarships.
Each year the chapter awards book scholarships to entering Spelman women from the Boston area. In 2008, the chapter awarded the Najoh Tita-Reid scholarship, a 1994 Spelman graduate from Framingham, Massachusetts and creator of the Procter & Gamble "My Black is Beautiful" Campaign. Additionally, the Jaydon T. White scholarship was awarded in honor of a Morehouse graduate's 6 year old nephew, teaching him a lesson of philanthropy and generosity at a young age.
