GAMMA XI CHAPTER Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc., was organized on Nov. 12, 1922, in Indianapolis by Mary Lou Gardner and six other school teachers; Dorothy Hanley Whiteside, Vivian White Marbury, Nannie Mae Cahn Johnson, Hattie Mae Dulin Redford, Bessie Rhodes Mactin, and Cubena McClure. The Sorority became an incorporated National Collegiate Sorority on December 30, 1929, when a charter was granted Alpha Chapter at Butler University, Indianapolis, Indiana. The purpose of this Sorority is expressed in its slogan " Greater Service, Greater Progress. " Activities are encouraged that will further in every way possible the growth of its members intellectually, morally and socially. To this end they assume the responsibility: (a) to provide an atmosphere in which friendship and social contacts may be developed, (b) to assist each member in developing social graces by emphasizing the value of poise and personal dignity, (c) to encourage and promote high scholastic attainment, (d) to develop leadership abilities and individual talents and (e) to maintain interests and attitudes in harmony with modern thought and changing educational outlook. For administrative purposes the chapters are divided into five regions according to their geographical locations. A Regional Syntakes in change. 88 Organizations K Greek Organizations 89 The History of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated The Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was founded on Howard Univer- sity ' s Campus January 16, 1920. It was suggested to Arizona Clever by Charles Taylor, a member of Phi Beta Sigma Frater- nity, that she establish a sister organization. This has become a national organization of college women banded together under a common bond of friendship and cultural effort seeking to establish the worth of womanhood through excellence in edu- cation, human service and citizenship.

There was total togetherness on the part of the students. When we finished the discussion, we all felt a new day was beginning at Florida Memorial College. The photos that were selected to go into the Arch are to reflect back on the promises that were made. They also allow us inventory to see how well we the students and the Administration have lived up to them. Activities 127 128 Faculty and Staff Faculty at work. Faculty and Staff 129 Reflections of — " The Man in " Action 130 Administration — President Dr. Willie C. Robinson — President A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT I congratulate you, the graduates of 1979. You will be forever remembered as the graduates of the one-hundredth year and the thirty-fourth four-year graduating class. The academic year 1978-79 has brought about many positive and significant changes in the academic climate of Florida Memorial College. I will not talk about all of these positive things that have occurred, but here are a few. Through the meticulous and dedicated efforts of Dr. Susie C. Holley and Mrs. Amelia Houston, President of the Women ' s Division of the Baptist General State Convention of Florida, Inc. and the Progressive Missionary and Educational Convention of Florida, respectively, the Pre-Centennial Donation Day Celebrations raised $183,599 for the college. This, I believe, marked the beginning of a new and more fulfilling era for Florida Memorial College. In this context, the college has launched a one million dollar centennial fund drive which will enable the institution to strengthen its foundation as we enter into the next century. The Baptist General State Convention and the Progressive M E Convention, through the endeavor of Rev. George Weaver and Dr. James C. Sams, saved the old Florida Memorial College campus in St. Augustine by purchasing the property from the college. This arrangement carries with it an opportunity for the college to benefit financially.

As I glimpse through the pages they reflect much more than just faces. It symbolizes the end and yet the beginning. It is the end of under-graduate school for the pre-Centennial Seniors and the beginning of a new life. It is the reflection of a road that was once traveled by boys and girls that are to become Prominent men and women in a changing society. This yearbook tells a story. The pictures are the words. It is a well written story with the plot being taken from four years of our lives. Within this story, only members of the FMC family will know the discrepancies and togetherness of it all. So much has happened these past four years. We have experienced both good and bad years that can never be eradicated from our minds. It was here at this land mark that we made decisions that were of vital importance to our lives. As we depart and go our separate ways, one day we will look back on the years that we spent at Florida Memorial and realize that it was only what we made it. As I close, I would like to thank those that worked so diligently sacraficing their Saturdays to work on this book. Thanks to the students for waiting patiently on our production (THE ARCH) and Thanks to FMC for giving me this opportunity. Congratulations and good luck to the graduating class. And to those who said it couldn ' t be done, WE DID IT. This is it, a reflection of the Pre-Centennial class of FLORIDA MEMORIAL COLLEGE. Goodbye and Good Luck 146 Yearbook Staff Flora M.

A father is someone who brings one to this life, takes care of him or her, sends his children to school and over-all the head of the household. But what happens if the head of the household dies? Then there would be no protector except God. _ w But Daddy, for the short time you ' 4 - ' ' ' ' ' ' lived, you showed me the way of truth. r 2 i ' . m ± With this I still hold one thing in myself that you are still around me somewhere »• , ' • , • ■ " ? where I cannot see you but you see and jjgjj ' Jft , ff r notice all my footsteps. Father, don ' t forget that you brought me to this world to be able to take care of me but you left me without any notice. What can I do or say just to wish you a perfect rest. I believe we shall still meet again on the resurrection day. SUNRE O SUNRE O SUNRE O Baba Re re.
