Sac State sorority members inspire middle school girls

e-Connections Post

Members of Sacramento State’s Alpha Pi Sigma sorority visited the STEM Club at Fern Bacon Middle School last month to discuss college life.

STEM Club is an after-school club for girls aimed at inspiring more young women to enter STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) professions.

Alpha Pi Sigma is a sorority focused on academics, giving back to the community and helping students similar to them. All of Alpha Pi Sigma students who visited Fern Bacon were Latinas from disadvantaged backgrounds. Many said they never thought they would go to college.

They shared the joy they find in taking classes and advised Fern Bacon students not to worry too much about college costs.

Fern Bacon students were able to ask questions and make a connection with these inspiring young women.
