Chapter History

The Omicron Iota Chapter was active at Elon College (currently Elon University), in Burlington, but there was no support for the collegiate chapter.

On May 28, 1988 in a ceremony held at St. Matthews AME Church, 1136 Apple Street in Burlington NC, the South Atlantic Regional Director, Soror Thelma Pettus, installed 12 members and the Burlington Alumnae Chapter was chartered. The charter members are:
