Erma Brathwaite-LaMotta

erma-headshotSoror ERMA BRATHWAITE-LAMOTTA became a member of Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. on March 26, 2000 when she was inducted into the Epsilon Zeta Chapter of St. Thomas, U. S. Virgin Islands. She fell in love with Iota’s principles and truly embraced the work needed.  In 2007, Erma became a member of Epsilon Rho of Orlando, FL after relocation.

Erma has served the sorority in various capacities.  She served as chapter president of Epsilon Rho from February 2008 to 2012.  She led the chapter for four and a half years where the chapter became a model of consistency and excellence in the Southern Region, winning countless awards on the Regional and National levels.  She has served her chapter through her involvement in every committee.  Her involvement didn’t stop at the chapter level, but continued on the Regional level, serving on numerous committees and eventually the Southern Regional Financial and Recording Secretary from 2012 to 2016.

Erma considers herself  blessed with a great man and supportive Man of Iota, Glenn LaMotta and three wonderful sons, Myckhael, Myenn and Myell.  Erma’s life is guided by the Bible verse, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we shall be rewarded if we do not give up”.  She continues to live by this belief, trusting in God and all he has promised for her life.
