Gamma Nu Omega
Chapter History 

The Gamma Nu Omega Chapter was established in Columbia, South Carolina on February 7, 1942, by 17 energized, sophisticated, and poised ladies under the leadership of Flossie M. Dedmond. Thirty-nine dynamic leaders have followed her assiduous lead in service throughout the Columbia metropolitan area. The chapter has grown to over 350 members who strive continually to capture a vision fair. The chapter has grown in a variety of ways; activities have taken on a deeper meaning, the membership has increased greatly, the programs have expanded and we have formed relationships which have ripened into genuine friendships.  For over 80 years the chapter has been a guiding light throughout the Columbia, South Carolina area.
