Meet Lambda Pi Chapter
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, Lambda Pi Chapter is a Flint citywide chapter that serves University of Michigan-Flint, Baker College and Kettering University. It was chartered on April 12, 1997 at a ceremony held at U-M-Flint.
The charter members are: Sorors Cassondra Collins-Whitlow, Angelina Ingram-Seay, Keesha Hankins- Holbrook, Yolanda Dantzler-Collins, Therasa Simpson-Martin and Natasha Underwood.
But we start the clock on the beginnings of the chapter to a development three years earlier. That’s when, on Feb. 10, 1995, five young ladies became associate members of Flint’s Zeta Beta Zeta Chapter because there was no undergraduate chapter in the area.
They were: Sorors Chelan Pea-Taylor, Yolanda Dantzer-Collins, Therasa Simpson-Martin, Keesha Hankins-Holbrook and Meka Vaughn-Young. Three of them would later go on to become charter members of Lambda Pi Chapter.
Zeta Beta Zeta sponsors the chapter.
Note: This is part of the Michigan State Organization’s online series "The MSO Great History Countdown! Our Centennial Journey to State Meeting" to leave a lasting gift to the state in honor of Zeta’s 100th anniversary. Histories from every graduate and undergraduate chapter in Michigan is being published in the month of September 2020 in the days leading up to the centennial state meeting. The project was approved under State Director Lynese Thomas’ administration, and overseen by MSO Epistoleus Earlene McMichael in partnership with MSO Historian Trudy Hale and Great Lakes Region Historian Norma Dartis.
