Biographical or Historical Data:
In 1929, Epsilon Sigma Alpha (ESA) was chartered in Jacksonville, Texas for the purpose of preparing its members to meet the challenges of an everchanging world. More than 80 years later, ESA continues to meet this original goal through the educational, leadership, and service programs that were born through the organization's commitment to making a positive difference for its members and the causes they support. Through ESA, men and women of all ages, backgrounds, and interests are united by the desire to make a difference in the lives of others, as well as their own. Some join collegiate or community chapters, others join as individual members.The Indiana ESA was established in 1943 with the first President, Mardelle McCormick from 1943-1944. The Past Presidents' Club, Indiana State Council was created in the late 1950s to "promote help and understanding among sisters [to] pledge themselves to support the aims and purposes of the Club and to otherwise serve in every way possible the best interests of their sisters." Today, Indiana ESA's main goals revolve around service and education. Philanthropies include St. Jude's Children's Hospital, Camp Riley for youth with disabilities, homeless veterans, breast cancer research, children's programs at schools and community centers, and food banks.
