CHERRY BLOSSOM PRINCESS SORORITY
PI ALPHA KAPPA
On May 22, 1963, a new chapter in the Cherry Blossom Princess Program began with the founding of the Pi Alpha Kappa Sorority or Prigkippissa Anthous Kerasias, “Daughters of the Cherry Blossom.” Pi Alpha Kappa Sorority is a permanent organization comprised of Cherry Blossom Princesses, past, present, and future, regardless of race, religion, or creed. For many years the sorority has been active and an important part of the lives of Cherry Blossom Princesses and the National Cherry Blossom Festival®. Pi Alpha Kappa Sorority provides Cherry Blossom Princess Alumnae with an avenue to share memories, make new friendships, and give back to the community. Membership in ΠAK is automatic when you are chosen by your state, territory, or embassy as a Cherry Blossom Princess.
To celebrate the 65th Anniversary of the Sorority, a sorority pin was commissioned in 2012 and given to all princesses, past and present at the closing ceremony. This traditional will live on each year at the closing ceremony and be given to each class as they close out the week as princesses and become Sorority Princesses.
