Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, Kappa Upsilon Omega chapter hosted the largest Cluster VI reunion September 22-23 in Aiken. More than 950 members were welcomed to USC Aiken, where history was made with the largest sit-down meal served in the school’s Convocation Center.
Aiken is known for its thoroughbred horse racing, African-American history and was the perfect theme for the event, Soaring to the Aiken Races.
During the cluster meeting, members demonstrated their service to the Aiken community by donating more than 2,500 food items to support the sorority’s Childhood Hunger Initiative Power Pack program. These donations will provide local children with backpacks of food over the weekend to address food shortages in the community.
