On behalf of the Phenomenal Women of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, Phi Kappa Omega, it is my pleasure to bring you greetings and welcome you to our official website. We invite you to explore these pages to learn more information about our upcoming service activities, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities.

Since our chartering on January 8, 2000, Phi Kappa Omega continues to provide resources and programs that are beneficial to underserved communities throughout Metropolitan Chicago and the southwest suburbs of Chicago. We strive to remain a pillar in our target areas by implementing programs under the leadership of our International President, Dr. Glenda Glover, through Alpha Kappa Alpha’s International Program, Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service. Phi Kappa Omega has received numerous recognitions and awards from the Central Region for our programs and service activities. As you can see, we are truly PHENOMENAL!

For the past 19 years, Phi Kappa Omega Chapter has been a devoted staple in the community as well as our educational system. Since our inception, we have awarded over $15,000 in scholarships to deserving students in Cook County continuing their education at four-year universities. Phi Kappa Omega is committed to providing the financial and educational support, resources and tools our young people need to succeed. Your patronage of our fundraisers is essential to funding our scholarships and we thank you for your continued support.

It is an honor to serve as the 10th President of a chapter with such rich history and trailblazing efforts. As the FIRST AKA chapter chartered in the new millennium, Phi Kappa Omega will continue to Strengthen our Sisterhood and Provide Supreme Service by living up to not only the vision of our charter members but also the founding principles of our beautiful founders. We honor them for their legacy and commitment to be of “Service to all Mankind.”

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learning about the PHENOMENAL work of the Women of Phi Kappa Omega Chapter.


Yours in Sisterhood and Service,

Tiffany D. West
