      EVENT DETAILS
      P.E.O. Sisterhood Texas State Chapter Convention

      P.E.O. (Philanthropic Education Organization) Sisterhood, a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans and stewardship of Cottey College and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.

      In the late 1800s, seven collegiate women came together with a common goal in mind – opportunities for women. From there, P.E.O. Sisterhood was born. 150 years later, over 105,000 women spanning backgrounds and continents have received funds totaling over $321,000,000. The Texas State Chapter will hold its 88th convention in Houston at the Royal Sonesta Houston Friday, April 26th – Saturday, April 27th in honor of the Sesquicentennial Celebration.

      This year’s theme is Going Ahead on the Part of all Women and was selected by Belinda Hargrove, president of Texas State Chapter. Sue Baker, president of P.E.O Sisterhood’s International Chapter, will serve as the keynote speaker and further expand on the theme, which happens to be words from one of the founders and are still true today. A highlight of the convention is the Projects Program when projects recipients describe the impact P.E.O. had on them and their family. On display throughout the convention will be original artifacts dating back to the 1903 beginnings of P.E.O. in Texas. During 2018-2019, the 10,547 members of the 257 Texas Chapters provided donations totaling $833,577 to nearly 200 project recipients.
