2020 CENTENNIAL LAUNCHED

Friday night after the board meeting was recessed, under the

direction of 2020 Commission Chair Jylla Moore Tearte,

sorors experienced an evening full of excitement as Zeta officially launched its

5-year countdown to 2020. The highlight of the evening was the issuance of

the official “Passport” which will allow each soror to chronicle her journey for

the next five years. If sorors weren’t excited before the

launch, they certainly left on a “Zeta high”, ready for

this journey.

Sorors wishing to follow the journey and learn more

about 2020 should log into www.zphib2020.org. To
