Armstrong has a brand new club, unlike any other in the state or the southeastern United States. The first chapter of the Student African American Sisterhood was officially recognized as active on April 6.

The national CEO and founder of the Sisterhood, Khalilah Shabazz, visited Armstrong over the weekend to offer a training seminar and bond with the new members.

In their first meeting on April 7, the ladies recognized Shabazz in their “Shero” moment. Shabazz founded SAAS at her alma mater, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, in 2005.

“Armstrong is my second family. I’m graduating in December and I have nostalgia because I am leaving my second family,” said Student Government Association President Andy Cabistan.

“My first family is in Costa Rica, and Armstrong is a wonderful, wonderful place. It is more than an academic institution, it is a place where students grow as leaders and as a family,” Cabistand said on April 3 at the inaugural Paint the Town Maroon event.
