On March 14, Sabre received an esteemed honor from a terrific service organization. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, awarded Sabre with the “Big Heart Corporate Initiative” honor for the company’s Passport to Freedom program and ongoing community involvement. This was an especially humbling experience for Sabre to receive an award for service from one of the oldest service organizations in the world.
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., is an international service organization that is the oldest Greek-letter organization, founded in 1908, established by African American college-educated women. The organization has an impressive 265,000 members in 974 chapters throughout the world and boasts a motto of “Service to All Mankind.”
The service sorority hosted a luncheon at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, titled, “Deep in the Heart of Texas: Where BIG Things Happen Through Timeless Service.” And the sorority lived up to their claim with almost 900 in attendance at the lunch, distributing 15 awards to other distinguished recipients like Pat and Emmitt Smith winning the “Best in Texas” leadership and “Community Service Award” for their work with Pat Smith’s non-profit, Treasure You, which brings together women of varied backgrounds and Nakia Douglas, Principal of the Barak Obama Leadership Academy who won the “Emerging Young Leaders Award” for the work he has done with at risk youth.
This recognition of Sabre’s programs is a tribute to the many employees who volunteer for programs like Passport to Freedom in our effort to end human trafficking. Sabre honors Alpha Kappa Alpha, Incorporated for their 100+ years of their service to all mankind!
