About Psi Upsilon Omega
The vision to establish a chapter in Henderson, NV can be traced back to early 2007. In 2011, a small group of Alpha Kappa Alpha women residing in Henderson, Nevada sought to expand the Sorority's presence in southern Nevada. Desiring to focus on serving the community and youth residing in Henderson, these women set out on tedious task of identifying other Alpha Kappa Alpha women wishing to reconnect with the Sorority. Through the loving and sisterly work of a few, more Alpha Kappa Alpha women were reconnected or reclaimed. Together, they set out on quest of becoming the second Alpha Kappa Alpha graduate chapter in the state of Nevada and Las Vegas Valley.
Taking on the identifyer, The Pearls of Henderson, the group received official interest group status on March 13, 2012. On Saturday, December 14, 2013, The Pearls of Henderson, a group of twenty-nine women became an official graduate chapter. Soror Lisa Morris Hibbler was elected to lead the new chapter as president. Psi Upsilon Omega is the first chapter established by Far Western Regional Director, Soror Barbara Denson Trotter and the second graduate chapter in the State of Nevada in nearly 50 years.
