CountsDavisGreetings:

As President of the Upsilon Omega Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Sorority, Incorporated, it is my honor and privilege to welcome you to our website!

Since the inception of the Upsilon Omega Omega Chapter over 17 years ago, its members have dedicated themselves to providing supreme service to the community of Irmo. The Chapter has demonstrated its commitment to impacting lives through various community programs including the ASCEND Youth Enrichment Program for high school students, providing backpacks and school supplies for elementary school students, providing meals for families in need, and the renewal of the playground of a local elementary school.  In addition, Upsilon Omega Omega’s signature event “Emeralds of Excellence” Debutante / Scholarship Cotillion has afforded us the opportunity to award over $144,000 in scholarships to college bound young women and men.
