Zetas recognized for GPA

The members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated are living up to their principles. The 2005 fall line for the Psi Beta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated were recognized for having the 2nd highest GPA in the Southern Region, which includes Louisiana and half of Texas. The lovely ladies of Zeta were presented with this award at their annual undergraduate retreat held in San Marcos, TX from February 25-27, 2006. With a cumulative GPA of 3.3, these ladies have shown dedication to their academics as well their campus and community. When asked about the honor, Zeta Phi Beta member Ladonna Hoze stated, "I am proud that Psi Beta was recognized for it’s academic endeavors." The ladies of the Psi Beta Chapter have shown dedication to their academics, not only when accepting news members, but while retaining them also. The chapter as a whole has a GPA of at least a 3.3 as well. According to Marisa Turner, a former member of Psi Beta, "This shows everyone that we are selective not collective when it comes bringing in new sorors." Since scholarship is an important part of their principles, it should not be strange that the Zetas were given this honor. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated was founded January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C. Over the years Zeta Phi Beta has chartered hundreds of chapters and initiated thousands of women around the world. Zeta has continued to thrive and flourish while adapting to the ever-changing needs of a new century. Since its inception the ladies of Zeta have stressed the importance of excellence in all endeavors: social, civic, and academic. Truly these ladies are exemplary of such standards. After speaking with the President of the Psi Beta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta here is what she had to say, "I am so proud of these ladies, they are hardworking in and out of the classroom and it is paying off…big time." In the community, Zeta Phi Beta sponsors over 175 Stork’s Nest programs, and is currently the top contributor to the March of Dimes for the third year in a row.
