The Gamma Gamma Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. represented Grambling State University very well at the 82nd annual 9th District meeting in Lafayette, Louisiana.
This year they won the 9th District Social Action Chapter of the Year as well as the 9th District Undergrad Chapter of the Year.
This is their second year in a row winning the Social Action Chapter of the Year award. This award is given to the chapter with the most participation in activities that will uplift their communities. Activities can include: voter registration, Assault on Illiteracy; Habitat for Humanity; mentoring; and participation in fundraisers for charitable organizations, for example.
Gamma Gamma  has hosted several events that contributed to their win.
Some of their programs included an anger management and conflict resolution program, a back-to-school drive, a financial literacy seminar, a voter registration drive and many more.
Gamma Gamma has won Chapter of the Year numerous times in the past, but this is the first time winning in more than 10 years.
“We were ecstatic as a chapter about winning the award because we worked very hard to achieve it,” James Jackson Jr, a member of the Gamma Gamma Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., said.
Gamma Gamma’s efforts and programs were compared to those in the 9th District, which includes chapters from Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.
“We think we have a tremendous impact on campus. We are always visual in all aspects on campus, from social events to informational events,” Jackson said.
Not only has Gamma Gamma won awards from their districts but they were also voted best fraternity for the 11th year in a row.
