Through a variety of philanthropic and social activities, The Gratifying Gamma Xi Colony of Sigma Beta Xi, Inc. inspires its members to adopt important values such as leadership, empathy and ambition, and to always strive for excellence.

Our Colony Motto: "A virtuous woman's beauty is not in her face, it's in the light she exudes when she serves others"
By epitomizing the colony motto, our goal is to enrich the lives of women, families and the community by promoting service, self-improvement, and higher education.
On the sixth day of April 2003 two women, one in Texas, the other in Tennessee, decided to create an organization despite the distance between them. They worked long days and nights to form an organization that catered to Mothers aspiring to improve themselves and their children. They wanted to design a sisterhood promoting self-improvement, community service, and higher education. They also wanted to create a sisterhood for women to express and share their joys and pains of motherhood, and care and concern for children and women's health and rights issues. Sigma Beta Xi Sorority was created with all of these things in mind; and Her Story began.
The two founders, donned The Guiding J.E.W.E.L.S., laid the foundation for this illustrious organization. Guiding J.E.W.E.L. Kapreia Sharif and Guiding J.E.W.E.L. Karon Wisdom. Both toiled long and hard researching Greek life, its origin and other organizations. They recruited a few friends to help the along the way, these two women, also revered the purpose for Sigma Beta Xi. They were donned as the Sapphire J.E.W.E.L.S. With the assistance of these two intelligent and dedicated women, Sigma Beta Xi Sorority Incorporated became a reality.

WHAT IS GAINED FROM BEING IN A SORORITY?
Sorority life offers something different for each member. From meeting new people, volunteering in the community, to having a true sense of sisterhood, there are unlimited benefits. When you join a sorority you form life long bonds with the women you come to know as your sisters. Often times, these ladies will be the ones standing as your bridesmaids at your wedding, or even be Godmother to your child, but most importantly, she is there to share all of your ups and downs. She is your sister for life.
