About EOS

The Eta Omicron Sigma Alumnae Chapter was organized on February 20, 1993 by Soror Paulette Davis, with assistance by Soror Inez Vanable. Sorors Denise Agnew Luvenia George, Dorothy Hoover Mary A. Johnson, Delois Jones, Zenobia Just, Helen Skelton, Jennie Walburg, Anita Wall, and Zelma Wesley originally chartered the Eta Omicron Sigma Chapter in Washington, DC. Five Sigma women worked together to bring the Sigma Torch to Southern Maryland. Under the auspices of Northeastern Region Syntaktes Felicia D. Blakeney, the chapter was relocated to Waldorf, Maryland, on December 22, 2005. The five reactivating sorors were Rebecca Hatcher, Lisa Savage, Allison Fisher, Sharon Carlton, and Tamanu Wannamaker.
