Sorority expands presence in the South at Texas A&M University
College Station, Texas—Since 1991, Gamma Phi Omega International Sorority, Inc. has expanded within the Midwest to numerous colleges and universities. In its 23rd year of existence, the Sorority announces its newest colony outside the Midwest region. On April 26, 2014, Gamma Phi Omega welcomed Kassandra Peña, Dessiree Martinez, Elizabeth Castillo, Xochitl Colunga and Melissa Gutierrez into the organization and recognized them as Noble Founders of the Texas A&M University Colony.
The Sorority is committed to developing mature, supportive, professional women. “The National Board of Director’s congratulates the women and recognizes their determination, passion and strength for establishing Gamma Phi Omega. We are confident that they develop into an exceptional chapter,” said Socorro Garcia, national president of the National Board of Directors. “We would also like to acknowledge Nicole Thomas and Joanne Reyes, the leaders of the membership team, guiding the women as they sought membership into Gamma Phi Omega.” The most recent expansion contributes to the Sorority’s 17 undergraduate chapters, two alumnae chapters, four alumnae colonies and three undergraduate colonies.
