Happy 120th Founder’s Day, Sigma Sigma Sigma! Today you celebrate years of sisterhood and tradition that have brought you to this moment in time of initiation over 125,000 initiated members in more than 112 chapters nationwide! For those who want to know more about this great organization, we put together a brief guide to this great organization!
Sigma Sigma Sigma was founded on April 20th, 1898, at State Female Normal School (now better known as Longwood University) in Farmville, Virginia. Their eight founders included: Margaret Lee Batten, Louise Marie Davis, Martha Trent Featherston, Isabella Merrick, Sallie Jackson Michie, Lelia Scott, Elizabeth Watkins and Lucy Wright.
Tri-Sigma’s special symbols include: a purple violet for their flower, a pearl as their official jewel, and the sailboat as the sails appear full representing our empowered sisterhood that is always moving forward. Their colors are purple & white and their official open motto is: “Faithful Unto Death”. March of Dimes & Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation are their official philanthropies. Over $1,500,000 has been donated for scholarship/leadership programs as well as over $3,000,000 in therapeutic play/child life programs which is absolutely amazing! Another fun fact is that the beautiful Carrie Underwood is a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma, Alpha Iota chapter, at Northeastern State University!
