Skipper will serve a two-year term and guide the local chapter in implementing international program initiatives themed “Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood.”
Strengthen Our Sisterhood will serve as the administration’s “Foundation Initiative” as they strengthen their bonds to support our service mission. The remaining five initiatives will serve as the “Program Initiatives” that include: Empower Our Families, Build Our Economic Wealth, Enhance Our Environment, Advocate for Social Justice and Uplift Our Local Community.
