Hello and welcome to our site. My name is Alessandra Della Porta and I am the 2016-2017 president of the Beta Gamma chapter of Sigma Alpha Professional Sorority. I am so excited to introduce you to this organization and myself.
I was born in the suburbs of Jacksonville, FL and grew up with little to no exposure to agriculture. I ask myself quite often how I am now the president of this group of women. I like to think that I am “a city girl turned agricultural advocate” and I can credit this transition to my time in Sigma Alpha. Whether you grew up showing in FFA or you have a passion to learn more about the industry, this organization can be a home for you.
Sigma Alpha dedicates everything we do to producing women of the highest caliber in the values of scholarship, leadership, fellowship and service. From resume reviews and professional development seminars to touring agricultural operations to learn first hand what is going on in the industry Sigma Alpha prepares women for a career in any field, especially agriculture.
If you are interested in who we are and what we do please continue to check this site for blog updates posted by our sisters on many different topics/viewpoints and follow us on facebook and instagram! We hold Rush in Spring and Fall semester to find the future of our sisterhood. We are all excited to meet you. Go gators and go agriculture!
Alessandra Della Porta, President 2016-2017
