The Sorority’s mission to be of “Service to All Mankind” that began in 1908 continues today.
The award-winning Pi Theta Omega Chapter is the first African American Greek-lettered organization in Morris County, and has been a part of Morris County for over 32 years and has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships to college-bound students.
As part of our commitment to Morris County, we strive to bring diverse service programs and fundraising events to benefit those individuals or groups that need assistance.

Pi Theta Omega continued to make history in the name of service to all mankind with the unveiling of its repository in the North Jersey History and Genealogy Center.
“What you are doing here today is letting the community know that Pi Theta Omega is viable,” declared North Atlantic Regional Director Soror Mary Bentley-LaMar, who joined Pi Theta Omega on Dec. 18, 2018, to showcase its 32 years of service to the community with the unveiling of its repository.
The FIRST repository of its kind in the North Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.®, it features a collection of media including newspaper articles, photographs and event regalia.
The repository took 10 months to complete and provides “an opportunity to come and do research on this award-winning chapter’s programs of service,” said Pi Theta Omega Historian and Archivist Patricia Bing.
