On December 4, 1979 a group of seventeen sorors met with the idea of organizing a chapter. They succeed in chartering the first chapter of a black Greek letter organization in Hinesville/ Liberty County, Georgia.
Cardell Hunt was the first president and others Chartered members included: Deborah Cambell-Robinson, Ruth Ghee, Lillie Gillard, Gladye Harris, Carolyn Herring, Christallia Ingram, Adelphenia Jackson-Brown, Dwinda Lewis-Wilson, Gloria McFadden, Jean Moore, Shirley Osgood, Fay Terry, Bertha Thorpe, Janice Turner-Taylor, Celestine Varnedoe-Jackson, and Essie Wilson.
