Central Region History

Central Region is of great significance to the Sorority as it is where the inception of the idea for our great sisterhood was born through the efforts of the courageous and illustrious 7 educators from Indianapolis, Indiana.

Central Region has a rich history in that the Sorority’s Pledge, National Hymn, Slogan, Official Badge, Coat of Arms, Sorority Flower, and the Sorority Colors were all created and originated from Sorors within the Central Region.

The Rhoer Pin, Rhoer Hymn and Official Flower were designed, written and selected respectively by members from Central Region.

The region consists of the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. In addition, the Canadian Divisions of Windsor, Ontario, and west to Saskatchewan as well as Baffin Islands,  Greenland, Iceland, Queen Elizabeth Islands and Germany comprise the Central Region.
