Message from the Basileus

Greetings, Sorors, Member of NPHC, Family and Friends,

I am Soror Maggie Longley the Basileus for the Eta Chi Sigma Alumnae Chapter in Las Vegas, Nevada.I worked in the Chicago Public Schools for 28 years as an elementary teacher and school-wide administrator. My goal as an educator was to be an inspiration and role model to young people, contribute to the development of their success, and teach them, by example, that we are responsible for each other. 

I was inducted into Delta Sigma Alumnae Chapter, Chicago Illinois in 2000. As a proud women of Sigma Gamma Rho, I worked diligently to be a shining example to all. Ten years ago, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. My sorors in Las Vegas reached out to me and encouraged me to become a member of Eta Chi Sigma Alumnae Chapter.

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was founded on November 12, 1922 at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana by seven young educators. I am so humbled to be a part of the same sisterhood as our seven illustrious founders. We are proud of our accomplishments we have made, and the traditions we have set into place during our ninety-two year existence.  Our Sorority actively participates in the sponsoring local and international programs designed to improve the welfare of all people, specifically our youth.
Eta Chi Sigma Alumnae Chapter is committed to uplifting and supporting the needs of community with service initiatives such as the Mwanamugimu Essay Contest, Operation Big Book Bag, Soles for Little Souls, March of Dimes and our annual youth symposium.
For the next two years, it is my goal to continue our rich history of leadership and service. We are dedicated to improving and positively impacting the surrounding communities of Las Vegas and our national programs.  As Basileus, I will continue to serve this office with integrity and accountability in  keeping with the mission of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, uplifting our legacy of sisterhood, leadership and service.

You are invited to peruse our website monthly.  We look forward to your support and participation throughout the coming years.

In Sisterhood, Leadership and Service,

Soror Maggie Longley
