As a University of Toledo student in 1979, Clara Petty was impressed with some of her peers on campus.

"I saw these women who were making a difference in the community, who were volunteering their time. That drew me to them," said Ms. Petty, president of the 109-member local Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority/Zeta Alpha Omega Chapter. The sorority was founded in 1908 at Howard University in Washington, and Toledo's unit began in 1952.
Ms. Petty, executive director of Monroe Street Neighborhood Center, had heard relatives and women at church talk about the sorority.

"We've provided 30 years of scholarships," Ms. Petty said.
She's found the networking helpful. "When I was unemployed, I put out my feelers to my [sorority] sisters. Several times it panned out," she said, adding that the group oversees chapters at UT and Bowling Green State University. "And the first thing we tell young women coming out of college is 'look to your sorors.'?"
Ms. Petty is also a member of Top Ladies of Distinction Inc., which grew out of a 1964 lunch First Lady Byrd Johnson had with some African-American Texas women. Ms. Petty joined Top Ladies because of its youth component, and she had two teenage daughters at the time.
