On Saturday, May 22, 2021, the National Panhellenic Council of Milwaukee (NPHC-MKE) participated in its “Annual Highway Clean-up.” NPHC-MKE adopted the one-mile stretch of roadway from 76th and Calumet Road to 76th and Dean Road, to clean up debris from passing cars. The NPHC-MKE adopted the stretch of highway many years ago as part of its commitment to showing pride in the community.

Those member organizations that participated included Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.; Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.; Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.; Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.; Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.; Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.; Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.; Iota Phi Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. NPHC-MKE Chapter President Berthena Brister said, “We typically do a clean-up in the spring and fall. It’s just another way of showing support to the residents and business owners in the area.”
