After what has been a very difficult year due to the pandemic and the loss of stalwart members, Gamma Pi Chapter in Prince George's County, MD got some good Omega news recently when it was named "Graduate Chapter of the Year" for Large Graduate Chapters (more than 50 members) during the recent virtual five-state 73rd Second District Conference, held during May 13-16.
The Super Chapter was honored for its aggressive social action program defined by tireless efforts leading almost-weekly COVID food drives in the county, sponsoring social justice and health programs through videoconference, and moving its Project ENRICH college prep program online during the pandemic. Chapters compete for the award by entering a "scrapbook" of their Fraternity year activities. The entries are reviewed and adjudicated by a committee.
Gamma Pi is grateful for the award, but stands together in celebration with all Omega Men in the Second District who are working to better their respective communities every day through their chapters. Gamma Pi is the fourth-largest chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. with more than 200 dues-paying members.
