Marvelous Mid-Atlantic Region
North Carolina and Virginia Sisters Creating Opportunities to Network and Nurture with Excellence, Character, and Transparency
On behalf of the members of the Marvelous Mid-Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, welcome!
For 70 years, the Mid-Atlantic Region has grown and developed into a magnificent organization focused on serving and supporting our members and communities through an extensive network of more than 130 chapters throughout the states of North Carolina and the Commonwealth of Virginia. With over 13,000 undergraduate, graduate and general members, the Mid-Atlantic Region proudly carries on the distinguished legacy of our founders through sisterhood and service.
With the theme of NVS: C.O.N.N.E.C.T.S, I’m honored to lead our North Carolina and Virginia Sisters in Creating Opportunities to Network and Nurture with Excellence, Character and Transparency. Our history is rich and the legacy of service the Mid-Atlantic Region has provided in our communities has been impactful. Through the launch of our NVS Heritage Circle we have provided travel grants for undergraduates to attend leadership conferences. In addition, we have launched the Nadine Vargas Stewart endowment through the Educational Advancement Foundation, to assist undergraduates with their pursuit of secondary education. We will continue to be impactful through our North Carolina and Virginia Legislative Days, where we will advocate for justice and equality for all. Please visit our social media channels on Facebook and Instagram for up-to-date information on the Mid-Atlantic Region.
