Sigma Psi Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was chartered on December 4, 2002, in Fort Washington, Maryland by: Tara Anthony, Nedra Butler, Levette Jones, Weldina Lewis (Conde), and Clarissa Lowe (Blake). Linked by a common vision to broaden the presence of Zeta in Prince George’s County, Sorors Lewis and Lowe spearheaded the creation of a second graduate chapter in the southern region of the area.
The chapter was officially chartered and welcomed into the organization by Past Maryland State Director, Jacqueline McNair, at her first state meeting. The first initiate of Sigma Psi Zeta was Aisha Hilliard, and along with the charter members, Soror Hilliard was instrumental in the formation of the chapter.
Through its chartering, Sigma Psi Zeta chapter aimed to foster an environment that was new and vibrant and one built upon a strong bond of sisterhood that upheld the ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated. The primary mission of the Sigma Psi Zeta chapter is to promote, provide support, and aid various parts of Prince George’s County Maryland.
Receiving many accolades and awards since it’s inception, on December 10, 2012, Sigma Psi Zeta celebrated ten years of outstanding, successful service in the Sorority. The chapter remains a force in the community with numerous Z-HOPE and community service programs, ongoing partnerships with Larkin Chase Nursing Home, Lewisdale and Carmody Hills Elementary Schools, and Carmody Hills Baptist Church, and a commitment to maintaining the community that the chapter was chartered in through the Adopt-A-Road program.
Sigma Psi Zeta continues to foster a national partnership with the March of Dimes, raising funds through the annual Skate For Babies event and holding scholarship fundraisers to support and assist Prince George’s County graduating high school seniors.
Last year the chapter celebrated its 15th anniversary since being chartered, and continues to reach out to, embrace and serve the community and the sisterhood.
