On March 1 6th\, the members of the Sigma Rho Zeta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority\ , Inc. (Cary\, NC) will host the 8th Triangle Youth Step-Off.

The first Ste

ted step teams. Previous winners include Dillard Middle School\, Fuquay’
s Finest\, Little Betas\, Blue Dynasty Community Center\, and Victorious P
raise Step team. The first\, second and third place teams will win a cash

“When I initially came up with the idea for the chapter to host the event\, the premise was to provide local youth te ams with a public outlet to display their amazing talents. The goal was to be inclusive of school\, church\, recreational and community center teams . The event has grown with each passing year and it is indeed a pleasure t o witness the creativity and originality of all the teams that participate ” Angela Brown\, the event’s founding chairwoman. The chapter consists of twenty-six women that share interests in scholarship\, service\, siste rly love\, and finer womanhood. This program brings the national ZHOPE pro gram locally where members help others through programming which support e ducational\, health and wellness initiatives. This year’s Step-Off is ex pected to sell out the 800 seat capacity of Sanderson High School’s audi torium.
