The “Mighty” Southern Region

The Southern Region traces its origins to 1929 when Roberta F. Bell was elected as the National First Anti-Basileus.

Between 1937 and 1943, the Southern Region grew into the largest region in the sorority. It still bears the name it was given during these years, “The Mighty Southern Region”, because it was so strong and gave such excellent leadership to the national body.

Many of the projects undertaken by the Southern Region were adopted by the national body, and the national body has grown with many of the ideas initiated in the Southern Region.
