The History of Pi Theta Omega Chapter
In the spring of 1984, five members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ("AKA") in the Morristown, New Jersey area met for lunch to discuss the feasibility of establishing a new chapter of the Sorority. The excitement and enthusiasm of these five women planted the seed that would mushroom to generate the first spirit of AKA power in the Morristown area. The five women, who became the steering committee, developed a goal statement, purpose statement, and calendar of activities.
In October, the committee invited 35 AKA women in the Morris County area to a luncheon. This luncheon was the official birth of the Morristown AKA Interest Group. All in attendance voted to move ahead with the ultimate goal of chartering a Morristown AKA chapter.
In September of 1985, the North Atlantic Regional Director, Ruth C. Easley, formally met the Morristown AKA Interest Group and outlined the responsibilities and procedures for chartering a chapter. Interim officers were elected in October 1985. The Interest Group submitted the required package for consideration by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated in February 1986, and received notification of acceptance in March of that year.
The chartering of Pi Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated on May 31, 1986, with her 22 members, marked the establishment of the first African-American Greek organization in Morristown, New Jersey, and the beginning of what will be a long legacy of Alpha Kappa Alpha sisterhood and service to the community.
Pi Theta Omega leadership positions have been held by many visionary women. Former chapter Basilei in succession were: Gayle Lloyd (1986-1990), Linda Harley (1990-1994), Mitzi Abney Wisdom (1994-1998), Vera Blossom (1998-2000), Carolyn Mims (2000-2004), Tammy Williams-Blackwell (2004-2008), Kisha Pippins-Fields (2008-2010), Joyce Malliet (2010-2014), and currently, Regenia Moore-Lee.
