Service and Scholarships

Alpha Kappa Alpha’s legacy is not only reflected in the history and achievements of the Sorority as a whole, but it is also a culmination of the labor and love exemplified by its individual chapters. For more than half a century, Delta Delta Omega has diligently served the East Saint Louis community by providing service, scholarships and program initiatives that recognize the heightened needs of our youth, women and families.
