This past weekend marked a historical and extremely notable time for the members of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc as this marked the 50th year of the Georgia State organization. Psi Chapter at Morehouse was chartered in 1922 but the State Organization was not established until 1963. The Weekend was flooded with events and programs including a golf tournament, community outreach, high school talent showcase, awards ceremonies, step shows and after parties. Each event was jam packed with members of the illustrious fraternity and appearances by affiliated and non affiliate celebrities and notables including Chesley McNeil & Elle Duncan (11 Alive), Reec (Hot 107.9), David Jones (Omega Man of The Year), Rick Wade, Senior Adviser and Deputy Chief of Staff for the US Department of Commerce, Benjamin Crump, Attorney for Trayvon Martin’s parents, US Congressman Hank Johnson, Georgia State Representatives James Beverly and Alisha Thomas Morgan.
For 50 years hundreds of youth from throughout Georgia have been mentored, received financial assistance, competed in the annual state wide talent hunt program, and gone on to attend colleges and universities throughout the state and this nation. Georgia, which comprises 47 chapters and more than 1,500 active members, has established itself as the largest and most productive state organizations within the 7th District, which includes the states of Alabama, Florida and Mississippi. The Brothers of Chi Gamma Gamma, Alpha Delta Nu and Alpha Delta Rho Chapters in Cobb County, hosted this year’s event!
