FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Zeta Rho Omega Chapter, successfully launched the International Signature Program 2018 – 2022, College Admissions Process (CAP), on September 29, 2018.
Alpha Kappa Alpha’s goal is to assist students as they seek admission to college by educating, guiding, and supporting them with the completion of the application and enrollment process. There were over 100 students, 30 parents, and 30 sorors at the kickoff, which was held at the Lauderhill 6 -12 School.
The students were thoroughly engaged as we dis-cussed the following: how to prepare for the ACT and SAT along with the dates for tests, how to identify scholarships and other financial aid, and how to develop a process for tracking college admission results. Additionally, we shared the importance of both the role that punctuality plays with regards to all activities and how to exude a positive outlook during the process to help enhance self-confidence. The CAP applications were distributed, completed, and the information entered into our CAP database after the meeting to ensure we captured all students.
Zeta Rho Omega President Jeannie B. Floyd and First Vice-President Tracy Lockhart-Talley were so excited and proud to see this record number of students and parents come out for this important college initiative. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of the students and to prepare them for success!
