— At the 80th Grand Conclave of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., which was held July 21- 28, 2016 in Las Vegas, Pi Omega Chapter, Graduate Chapter of Baltimore was once again recognized for its service to the community.

On Wednesday, July 27, 2016, Pi Omega Chapter was recognized as the Fraternity’s 2014-2015 International Social Action Chapter of the Year (Large Chapter, 50+ Members). The Social Action Chapter of the Year is presented to the chapter that best implements the Fraternity’s mandated programs and provides significant community based programs to the local area and beyond. Pi Omega was selected from entries from the twelve districts of the Fraternity, after being selected in the same category for the Second District Social Action Chapter of the Year in April. The Second District of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity covers the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. Pi Omega has won this award at the district level five times. This is the chapter’s third consecutive International Social Action chapter award.

Under the director of C. Donald Bowser, Basileus of Pi Omega Chapter, Dwayne White and John Berkley, Social Action chairman and co-chairman respectfully, continued to engage the members in a variety of activities that fit in with the strengths of the chapter. All members of the chapter were involved in the activities during the year, truly making this a chapter award. The Pi Omega Que-ettes were also a great help to the chapter during this time. The true winners are the hundreds of people locally, nationally, and internationally, who benefited from the services and programs offered by the chapter and Omega men throughout the world. Well done is truly better than well said.
