Theta Omicron Sigma Alumnae Chapter of Syracuse NY was chartered on January 31, 1998, by six tenacious women who were looking to offer membership to those who wanted to improve the Syracuse Community at the graduate level.  These six charter members were Aileen Cangiano-Heath (Theta Tau, Spring 1994), Nancy Diaz (Theta Tau, Fall 1994), Debra Roberson-Allred (Theta Tau, Fall 1981), Loree Johnson (Theta Tau, Spring 1994), Lynn Brice-Lawrence (Theta Tau, Fall 1981) and Adah Ward –Randolph.


This chapter continues to uphold the mission of this great organization, which is to enhance the quality of life within the community.

Theta Omicron Sigma Annual Scholarship Fund

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"

Nelson Mandela

In a time when education for African Americans was difficult to attain, the founders of Sigma Gamma Rho became educators. They believed that the self-respect, knowledge and discipline gained through study would help individuals to recognize their duty and responsibility for their society. Thus, Sigma Gamma Rho was founded on the precept of education and continues to promote and encourage high scholastic attainment.

In that same vein, each year the ladies of the Theta Omicron Sigma Chapter seek eligible applicants for our academic scholarships.
