We, the ladies of this Great Sisterhood take pride in shining the Spotlight on Soror McGirth, as she truly embodies the “Essence of Feminism” and is a True Kappa woman!!!
We sat down in an interview with Soror McGirth and found her delightful when asked the following questions:
How did you find out about Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Inc.?
“One of my soror's was on downelink and I saw the greek letters on a hat she was wearing. I asked her about it and she told me about Phi Nu Kappa but she also told me to do my research. Upon researching I found that Phi Nu Kappa was the best place for me because I didn't have to be anything other than a female, I didn't have to choose a label.”
How have you grown within the organization?
“I came in and was active until about 2009 I went inactive due to financial reasons. I have grown because when I first came in it was about being in a sisterhood but I didn't realize the work that I would have to do. I realized that if I want to see things happen differently that I can't just sit and talk about it I have to be about it. Put the work in to help be apart of the change I want to see.”
Which organizational event would you consider most enjoyable?
“Winter Ball or any event when the whole Tau Kappa Phi phamily gets together."
What is your favorite Sorority “catch phrase”?
"Its about Quality not Quantity"
In your own words, encourage a young woman towards interest into Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Inc.
“If you are looking for a sisterhood where you can not only grow as an individual but get to know some really great people from all over then this is the one for you. You should always do your research but the sisterhood I have experienced is not like no other. We are the best of the best!"

We sat down in an interview with Soror D. White, of Omicron Chapter, and found her delightful when asked the following questions:
What are some of your chapter/colony/MAL Initiatives?
"Omicron never actually sat down and said this is our initiative, but we do have strong passions. One being helping those less fortunate and in need of food & clothing as well as shelter. Some would called them homeless we have grown accustom to calling them neighbors without addresses. To witness some of the most meniscal things we take for granted mean the world to someone else gives us joy and forces us to reflect on our daily blessings we take for granted."
What community do you serve and how do you serve the community?
" How do you serve this community? We serve the community as a whole, we have partnered with North Jersey Pride, Hudson Pride , Newark Pride , The Warming Stations , Greater Episcopal Church, Assisted in the Act like a Lady , Think Like a Boss tour, Toys for Tots, Paction. Where ever there is a need Omicron hears the call and is always there to give a helping hand."
What are some of your chapter/colony/MAL activities that promote Sisterhood?
"With Sisterhood it is an evolutionary progress. There is no clear cut answer, but we get together for service, dinners, wedding preparations, movings, job promotions, venting sessions. We keep lines of communication top priority. We realize that although we may not always agree on different items, no one can invalidate another’s feelings. We try to stay true to the notion that the pledge we took is bigger than any one persons."
How does your chapter/colony/MAL contribute to Scholarship?
"One of the things Omicron is working on is giving 300.00 to a Senior that is the most improved and deserving of monetary donation to be used for College Applications. Second Part of this is to assist a child who is less fortunate and in need of support with 250.00 towards supplies or items needed to assist them in school. This is in the works and we are using the school that Soror Curet- Soto & Soror Chatman- Baldwin work at as a trial run. We did suscessfully complete some fundraising to start us on our journey."
What service to the community would your chapter/colony/MAL state was the most enjoyable?
"We enjoy all the service we do so it’s very hard to narrow it down to just one. When you enjoy what you do you find joy in everything."
Name one goal your chapter/colony/MAL hopes to accomplish in the upcoming year.
"I’d like to see us more involved with the Chamber of Commerce and working with other organizations on a larger scale of projects and gain more visibility. I would like us to sponsor more events especially for the youth ."

Omicron was founded by an “Expudged Member” Du-E-Wa King in 2005, however was reactivated by myself and IgNite in 2012. IgNite & myself like toconsider ourselves the Re-activating founders because we can’t ever forget our History, Good, Bad or indifferent it was necessary for the creation of Omicron Chapter as a whole ultimately. “You can’t go forward until you know where you came from “this knowledge of self was very important to me especially in the development of Omicron. As a neo you have all these questions, you are so hyped and want to take on the world but you need a steadfast foundation and a strong support system. fortunately Omicron has both.
