A Snapshot of the Zealous Zeta Alpha Sigma Alumnae Chapter: Your Destination for Sisterhood and Service
The Zealous Zeta Alpha Sigma Alumnae Chapter (ZAS) is based out of College Park, GA and primarily services the counties of South Fulton, Clayton, Cobb, and Douglas. Our members reside in all areas of the Metro Atlanta area. ZAS currently has 37 members ranging in age, professional background, cultural experience and years of Sigma service. The dynamic women of ZAS are mothers, wives, aunts, daughters, and leaders in their chosen professions and the community.
