PROGRAMS & INITIATIVES

The Sigma Tau Omega chapter is committed to serving the citizens of Cary/Western Wake County and surrounding areas. We set yearly goals and programs to meet the targets of our International Office as well as respond to immediate needs/requests from the community.

The 2022-2026 Chapter programs will reflect the mission of our International President, Danette Anthony Reed. Her International Program is titled Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood.
