Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. – Alpha Lambda Sigma Alumnae Chapter - Cleveland OH

Philo Affiliate

Since its inception, Sigma Gamma Rho has promoted unity among women and for years many alumnae chapters worked with individuals who were not members of Greek-lettered organizations.

In 1943, the Galveston-Houston, Texas area Philos began as the Galveston Comrades. The purpose was to organize an auxiliary that would work with the chapters to promote the objectives and principles of the sorority.

These women were organized into auxiliaries that had various names until 1954 when the sorority officially approved the organized affiliate group and accepted the name of "Philo" (meaning Friend) as their official name.

The Alpha Lambda Sigma Philo Affiliate was charted November 12, 1998. The affiliate has served the Cleveland community for nearly 25 years contributing countless hours of community service and thousands of dollars to aid Sigma Gamma Rho's aim to enhance the quality of life for every community.
