Over the last 39 plus years, Sigma Alpha has impacted the lives of thousands of young women pursuing careers in agriculture. What began as five women building an organization to help women in agriculture on their campus to achieve their educational and career goals has grown to a network of 67 active collegiate chapters that cultivates women leaders in agriculture in a supportive sisterhood that continues after graduation.
The national network of Sigma Alpha women has grown to nearly 17,000 women; many of whom continue to network with one another and live by the four pillars – Leadership; Scholarship; Service and Fellowship. They continue to engage with this network on a national level by serving as chapter consultants, national committee members, national Sorority and Foundation board members and even as general consultants sharing with the Sorority what they’ve learned in their professional capacity.
As the fortieth anniversary of the founding of Sigma Alpha Sorority approaches, the Sigma Alpha Educational Foundation celebrates our founding and honors those five women – Jennifer McMillan Rubin, Amy Mathews Viets, Ann Huling Mathews, Marilyn Burns Sumpter and Cindie Davis Holub with an inaugural giving day on January 26, 2018.
The goal – to generate $40,000 for our fortieth anniversary. Join us and continue to be a part of the legacy that is Sigma Alpha Sorority.
