Fraternity encourages reading for youths

The Brothers of Alpha Phi Omega at GSU have established a team collaboration with the teachers at Alma J. Brown Elementary to host a “Readers For Leaders” program. The program promotes reading among students, and it hopes to encourage the enjoyment of reading (curriculum) related stories from textbook literature. The program has provided an enriching experience, both for elementary and college students.

During the reading sessions ,the young children are asked questions regarding the story as it is being read to them Each student is encouraged to participate so they build fundamental reading skills to become leaders of tomorrow.

Members of Alpha Phi Omega are involved in contributing their time and landscaping talents to “Making-A-Difference” at the GSU Nursery School.

Each Saturday and Sunday, members get together to clean the playground area of the GSU Nursery. The mission is to help provide a clean and safe environment for the children attending the Nursery School.

The members work to clear the playground of the worn sand and rocks that are unsafe for the youth and to lay down rubber mulch, which is safer and healthier for the children to play on.

If anyone in the Grambling State University family or in the city of Grambling would like to contribute funds or their time for this project, please contact the chief advisor, Dr. Danny Hubbard at (318)274-3720, hubbardd@gram.edu; or Kel Williams at (337) 661-1551, Mjoseph_will@yahoo.com.
