Kappa Theta Epsilon is proud to serve the metro Atlanta community through the Jewel of the South Colony. Located in Fulton county, and serving the Cobb, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Clayton and Henry County areas, JOTS serves as the Sorority’s home and hostess entity for the 2014-2016 biennium. We are also the current home of our Founder.
The JOTS Legacy
Jewel of the South has been instrumental in Sorority innovation. The 2014 biennium theme was conceived and activated here. The Atlanta colony is also responsible for the concept for the STEMS program and Dress Up! with KTE.
Service with JOTS
In addition to signature Sorority programs, the Jewel of the South Colony also participates in a variety of community service efforts sponsored by other organizations. We have given active service hours to AIDSWalk Atlanta, The Henry County Public Schools district, the Atlanta Opera, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and more. The colony also provided a financial gift to the Love Kitchen, located in Knoxville, Tennessee, during our 2014 fiscal year.
