Brothers of Rho Alpha Chapter,
As we join today in commemoration of this stoic event, I want to take a moment to wish you all, a Happy Founders Day!
Today we celebrate the founding of our great fraternity. Brothers Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper, and Frank Coleman with the advice of Professor Earnest E. Just knew the time was right on November 17, 1911, despite the opposition for the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity to be founded on the campus of Howard University.
Without the vision of our Founders, without their determination, we would not be here today, 110 years later. I think we all can agree that anything that has been around for 110 years has truly gone through some trying times and has persevered through it all.
As brothers of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., let us celebrate today in unison, let us celebrate in harmony, and let us be reminded from whence we came. But let’s keep in mind that we have much work to do. We have communities that need all that we have to offer as men. Be reminded of Omega’s watchword and remember Omega’s implied motto – for if you do, there is no doubt our communities, and our families will benefit from Omega’s presence, and we will be better men.
Enjoy our day my brothers, be safe and Long live the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
Brother James T. Averhart, Jr.
