Pi Lambda Lambda Supporting Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.’s 28th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Program

P_R_I_N_C_E_ _W_I_L_L_I_A_M_ _C_O_U_N_T_Y,_ _VA_— _ January 15, 2018

On January 15, the Brothers of Pi Lambda Lambda Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. participated in the Prince William County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.’s 28th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Program and Youth Oratorical Contest.

Held at the Cecil D. Hylton Memorial Chapel in Woodbridge, Virginia, members of the “Divine 9”, NAACP, local school boards, local city and county government, and other local and national service organizations supported this celebration of Dr. King’s life and achievements.  Attendees included Representative Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA 11), local law enforcement leadership, educators, school superintendents, and citizens from the cities of Woodbridge, Manassas, and Prince William County.

Approximately 16 Brothers and 32 young mentees from the chapter’s Omega U mentoring program dedicated their time and talents in providing usher and logistics support to the event.   Supporting an event honoring the life and achievements of Dr. King is in keeping with the Fraternity’s Cardinal Principles of Manhood, Scholarship and Uplift and the Chapter’s dedication to Social Action.

The theme for this year’s contest was “In His Own Words:  Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”.  Middle and high school students selected a quotation from Dr. King and explained what this quote meant to them based on experience, observations, history, or readings.  Through an evaluation process, the initial field of competitors was reduced to the final field of three middle school and three high school contestants who performed their speeches for an audience of more than 1,000 people.

“Supporting our sisters and these outstanding students in honoring Dr. King is what service is all about,” said Brother Vernon Campbell, Pi Lambda Lambda’s Vice Basileus. Pi Lambda Lambda (PLL) Chapter is a graduate chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., an international nonprofit social and civic service organization that has more than 700 chapters with 100,000 members in 14 countries worldwide.

Since the Chapter’s founding in Dumfries, Va., in January 2004, PLL has supported public and community events across the region, benefiting scholarship, health promotion, youth mentorship, citizenship and social action. Pi Lambda Lambda (PLL) received the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated International Chapter of the Year Award in 2016 and the Third District, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated Chapter of the Year in 2017. This recognition marks the third time since the Chapter’s founding in 2004 that PLL was honored with the most prestigious honor bestowed by the Fraternity.

Pi Lambda Lambda Chapter serves Prince William County, the cities of Manassas, Manassas Park, and Stafford County.

The Brothers of Sigma Kappa Kappa Chapter responded to the call to Uplift those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The chapter believes in good old fashion hard work. The brothers partnered with Ms. Bri’Anne S. Green, a leader in the city of Chesapeake and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and went to work to make a difference. The location was Bethany Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Bro. H. Patrick Cason (Alpha Iota), Brothers Stanley Barner, Kodi Fleming, Winfield “E” Edwards, Antwan Shepherd, Mike Brown, Ricky Lawrence, Delwyn Petersen, Daryl Jones, Justin Hampton Dexter Bailey and Jax Bailey helped to collect items needed for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The Brothers worked hard on the assembly line filling a whole tractor trailer with much needed supplies to be sent to Texas. This event was also covered by WAVY News 10 and will air Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 11:00 pm. Sigma Kappa Kappa Chapter would like to extend our prayers to all those who were affected by the storm. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
