The Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., “Variety Show and Stroll Competition” began in 2007 as the “brain child” of Marea Monro. Monro became a member of SGRho in 2006 and created the program and awarded trophies to the best Greek Stroll Teams; and it has continued annually ever since on the campus of Delaware State University as a vital tradition.
This is the first year the sorority awarded a trophy and a monetary prize of $300 dollars to the winning Fraternity and Sorority. Through the years, there have been singers, “Spoken Word” artists, dancers, musicians, and the enthusiastic “Divine Nine” Stroll Teams.
“The Zeta Delta Chapter (Undergraduates) and Delta Tau Sigma Chapter (Alumni) thanks the Office of Student Leadership and Activities, Student Affairs Division, for allowing our sorority to continue to have this event” says, the Advisor of the Zeta Delta Chapter.
On Thursday March 22nd, 2018, the ladies of Sigma Gamma Rho sorority Incorporated hosted their annual Stroll Competition. The compoetition consists of greek organizations competing against one another for a trophy and cash prize. The stroll competition is also a variety show where different organizations could choose to perform as well. This year to open the show, 1Entity Modelling troupe performed a dance number.
The Greek organizations who competed in the competition were:
· Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.
· Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
· Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Inc.
· Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc.
· Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.
Out of the five, only one sorority and one fraternity could reign as the 2018 victors. The Uplision chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated and The men of Iota Phi Theta were this year’s 2018 stroll competition winners. The Zetas Chinese, karate theme raised them to the top scoring sorority amongst the judges and, the moves of the men of Iota Phi Theta, capitvated the audience.
Congratulations to this year’s winners of the Annual Sigma Gamma Rho stroll Competition.
