Phi Omega Omega women are making strides in service to community



In keeping with the mission centered around five basic tenets that have remained unchanged since Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated’s inception, Phi Omega Omega Chapter of Manning, South Carolina is pleased to announce that three of its members are continuing to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, and are improving their social statures through continued upward progression.

Sister Kayla Davis, a member of the United States Navy was recently promoted to Captain. Captain Davis is a graduate of Tuskegee University in Alabama. She continues to study at the American Military University where she is completing a Masters in Intelligence Studies with a concentration in Criminal Intelligence.

Sister Monica Reid, MBA, was recently named First Vice- President of the Manning Lions Club #11847. At the heart of Lions clubs there is one constant: service. Sister Reid gives her time and energy to others as a fantastic way to help her community. Being a Lion, provides her a great feeling that spreads a positive impact in her life and how she approaches the world. Further, the honor of one of the Top 20 Young Professionals Under 40 in Sumter, Clarendon and Lee counties was bestowed upon Monica during the Fall of 2022.

Another member of Phi Omega Omega, Sister Keyana Prince, was one of only 15 out of several hundreds to be selected to serve on a mission in East Africa. In September, she will travel with the team to embrace and equip people to live a life beyond Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). In this service, it is believed that in our world no story should be cut short or silenced by AIDS. Therefore, they are working toward a future where every single person living with HIV/AIDS will receive life-saving care, gains spiritual hope, and lives a flourishing life without stigma.
