Join the Eta Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. for our annual Achievement Week Awards Banquet. As we do every year, we will recognize members of our community and fraternity that have gone above and beyond in serving others this past year.

This year’s banquet Keynote  Speaker is Brother Ernest Green, who was one of nine Black students (known as the Little Rock Nine) who needed a U.S. Army escort to desegregate Little Rock, Arkansas’ Central High School.  Brother Green would become Central’s first black graduate, before attending Michigan State where he was initiated into Omega Psi Phi through Sigma Chapter.  Splitting his career between the public and private sectors, he’s worked for Presidents Carter and Clinton, and currently is an executive with Matrix Advisory, an assets management firm. Green is a member of the Clark Atlanta University Board of Trustees, he and the rest of the Little Rock Nine received Congressional Gold Medals in 1999.

About Achievement Week
Achievement Week is a Nationally Mandated Program of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. It was originally designed by Brother Carter G. Woodson to “promote the study of Negro life and history”, and began even before Negro History Week (now Black History Month). Omega Psi Phi’s Achievement Week is observed in November of each year and is designed to seek out and give due recognition to those individuals at the local and international levels who have made a noteworthy contribution toward improving the quality of life for African Americans.
