Our Seven Beloved & Illustrious Founders

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority was founded in 1922
by seven schoolteachers in gold and royal blue

Soror Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little was her name.
The founding of Sigma Gamma Rho was her main programme.

Soror Nannie Mae Gahn Johnson was a great teacher indeed,
For she helped the little children when they were in need.

Soror Bessie Downey Rhodes Martin was a true soldier;
any time someone needed her they could always cry on her shoulder.

Soror Cubena McClure was an effective and creative one within;
for she helped to design "the great" Sigma pin.

Soror Hattie Mae Annette Dullin Redford was the mother of none,
but she loved teaching and Sigma Gamma Rho dearly, like the God given sun.

Soror Dorothy Hanley Whiteside was a hard working sista' for sure;
for she helped the sick, and through the love of God she was able to endure

Soror Vivian White Marbury I saved for last, because she is the only one who could explain the Sigma past.

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated is a great sorority and that is no myth.
That is why were are still strong in 2001
We have celebrated our 74th and even a couple more.

~ Soror Tamanu Lowkie

"We are based on quality, not quantity.
We are proud of our number and of ourselves.
We are able to go through the test.
Many of our sorors traveled that long RHOad by themselves,
and that should let you know... We can stand through any test"


"From that cold November day in 1922 when the Alpha Chapter sank its roots
into the campus of Butler University, Sigma Gamma Rho has progressively
evolved into a thriving sisterhood that comprises more than 85,000 college-
trained women across the United States, and in Bermuda, Africa, the Virgin
Islands, Germany, Canada, Europe and the Bahamas."
