Dr. Zephanye L. Sistrunk is a current member of Psi Upsilon Omega Chapter in Henderson, NV.

After graduation, she remained a general member until she moved to the Las Vegas area and joined a group of local Alpha Kappa Alpha women who eventually became an interest group known as the Pearls of Henderson. She ultimately went on to be one of 29 chartering members of Psi Upsilon Omega, only the 2nd chapter to be chartered in the state of Nevada in nearly 50 years.
