Natasha Myers 

Soror Natasha Myers is from Fayetteville, North Carolina and a true Southern belle at heart. Outside of being a single mother of three children, she is a full time Internal controls & investigations manager with the Department of Social & Health Services. While juggling being a mom and having a demanding career, she is also pursuing my bachelor's degree in Business Administration with concentration in Organizational Leadership. Natasha chose Sigma Gamma Rho because  she fell in love with everything this organization stood for. Growing up, she wanted to join a sorority, but a preference never crossed her mind. At that time, it was all about "status" and not the true meaning behind joining a sisterhood. As she got older, that ship sailed until she met a Philo who introduced her to Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. From day one, she felt welcomed, comfortable and could see the love these women had for one another, the organization and their mission. The more she learned about Sigma Gamma Rho, she knew this was the organization for her. "This is a family of educated, loving, supportive women who selflessly give their time to community work, provides education in various ways and who are determined to be a positive influence to all they encounter". Being a member of this organization has encouraged and motivated her to be the best woman, mother, leader and Soror she can be. She is beyond blessed to belong to SGRHO and will do her part to continue the traditions of this great organization.
