Greater Charlotte Chapter Receives Charter

During the National Conference in Atlanta, GA, the Greater Charlotte Chapter under the leadership of Janice Powell Walker '89 received their charter only after 4 months of meeting together! There were 6 of the 13 original members on hand to accept the charter.  This is the 2nd chapter in North Carolina, which includes members from Greensboro, Salisbury, Charlotte, and all points South, East, and West including Fort Mill, Rock Hill, and Columbia, SC. If you live in any one of these cities and would like to find out more about joining this chapter, please contact Janice at  They meet every 2nd Sunday of the month from 2-4 PM.

WU Green and Gold Queen Sized Blankets Crochet Blankets

The Greater Charlotte Chapter raffled off a WU green and gold Queen-sized, hand-crocheted blanket created by their president, Janice Powell Walker '89 at the National Conference during the Gospel Brunch. The chapter raised $355.00 thanks to all, who purchased a raffle ticket!


Ms. Karen Alexander Roebuck of Davenport, Iowa had the winning ticket, which was pulled by Rev. Alexander during the Gospel Brunch.  Karen is a HBCU Graduate of Tennessee State University.  Karen drove from Davenport to Chicago, IL to pick up 3 of her Aunts, who graduated from WU in the 1970's, then drove to Atlanta.  She registered and attended all of our events with her Aunts.  Ironically, Karen's high school colors were green and gold, so it was truly meant to be for Karen to win this cozy, hand-crocheted blanket.


If you would like to purchase your own Queen-sized, hand-crocheted blanket - WU green and gold, fraternity, sorority, or favorite sport team's colors, please send an email to Janice at

If you order a blanket or pre-order for pickup during the 2017 National Conference now through Monday, October 31st the cost is only $185.60. The blankets normally costs $250.00, which is a 25% savings. Janice will donate 20% of each blanket ordered to the Greater Charlotte Chapter. Janice also hand-crochets baby blankets, which costs $90.
