In 2003, Iota Chi Zeta Chapter established the Sarah Hicks Jolley Scholarship. Soror Sarah Hicks Jolley was an educator in Dorchester County Maryland for forty six years. Soror Jolley began her formal education in the public schools of Atlantic City and she received her teacher training at the College of New Jersey State, then known as the New Jersey Normal School. She received her B.S. Degree in Education from Morgan State College, Baltimore, Md. She also studied at the University of PA, Temple University, University of DE and University of MD.  She became a member of Iota Chi Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. on September 12, 1984. 


Each year, we award at least three (3) $500 scholarships to young women in pursuit of post secondary education. To date, the chapter has awarded over $18,000 in scholarships.
