Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority welcomed its 1,000th chapter last month, and it’s located in Beaufort County.
The Upsilon Delta Chapter at the University of South Carolina Beaufort was chartered into Alpha Kappa Alpha on Nov. 13, at an event at Sonesta on Hilton Head Island. International President Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson, regional director Sharon Brown Harriott and undergraduate member at large Victoria Simpson attended the chartering, along with sponsoring graduate chapter, Nu Delta Omega, to celebrate the Upsilon Delta’s 12 new members.
Alpha Kappa Alpha is the country’s oldest Greek organization for black women.
Upsilon Delta is the 54th undergraduate chapter in the South Atlantic Region, which has a total of 168 undergraduate and graduate chapters.
