President's Welcome

2018LTO-1Welcome to the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® Lambda Tau Omega Chapter (LTO) – the shining light of the South Suburbs! We are a group of over 165 bright, phenomenal, innovative leaders that are dedicated to being the Supreme in Service to all Mankind. We are glad you have found your way to our website! We extend a sisterly welcome to members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® and invite you to join the sorors of LTO and rekindle that old AKA spirit. Feel free to peruse our Chapter history and get a brief overview of the work we do to serve the South Suburban community through our programs!

Since our chartering in 1978, we have been active within the Southland area and strive to continue to uphold the remarkable legacy of our illustrious organization. This year marks our 40th year of service in the community. As proud members of the Confident, Classy, Compassionate, and Charismatic Central Region, we actively participate in program initiatives inspired by dedicated investment of human capital and a bold commitment to the principles of basic human rights. We devote our talents and resources to programs prescribed by the International office, our LTO “Pearls” mentoring groups, and over $125,000.00 in scholarships awarded since 2001.

As Martin Luther King Jr. famously quoted “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” During times where our community faces academic, civic, health, financial and socioeconomic challenges, LTO Sorors lead through love, compassion, and impactful programing. LTO Sorors are on a mission to let our lights shine bright! Please join us as we illuminate the South Suburbs!
