Presenting… the Iota Eta Eta chapter of Chi Eta Phi Sorority Inc.! 

The Iota Eta Eta Buffalo Chapter of the Chi Eta Phi Sorority Incorporated  was inducted as an official chapter on May 22, 2021. 

Chi Eta Phi was founded by Aliene Carrington Ewell in 1932 at Freeman’s Hospital in Washington D.C. which has transformed to Howard University Hospital. This sorority is open to male and female representation of many cultures and various ethnic backgrounds. Currently there are 13 chartering members, all women (for now); as we progress, we hope to recruit and expand our membership. The sorority’s  mission includes but is not limited to promoting higher education, encouragement of continuing education & recruitment for the health and nursing professions.

COMMUNITY SERVICE: Chi Eta Phi Sorority first community service project at True Bethel Church. The names are as follow from left to right: Jeanie Scott, Willa Arnett, Shadevia Marshall, Sophia Overton, Brentnie Adams (president) & Sherita Dubois.

Chi Eta Phi Sorority Incorporated is also an internationally recognized leader in health education, leadership development and service to the community (Chi Eta Phi, 2014).  The sorority’s motto is “Service for Humanity.”

Brentnie Adams , the local chapter president, has been a member of Chi Eta Phi for quite some time and is currently a member at large. She was  so moved by the humanitarian efforts and impact Chi Eta Phi had on the community that she decided to start a chapter here in Buffalo, NY.

“We are now able to move forward to impact Buffalo, N.Y. like no other organization!” read a statement from the local chapter.” Iota Eta Eta has already begun community service programs. On May 16, 2021, Bishop Darius Pridgen approved our chapter to distribute COVID supplies and information about the COVID vaccine, the supplies were donated by Stan Martin and CAI Global. Iota Eta Eta is looking forward to committing to Buffalo and updating local media outlets on upcoming community service projects.

Buffalo GET READY!!
