Alexandria, VA – The Brothers of the Psi Nu Chapter, Third District of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. commemorated National Achievement Week with a virtual community and awards program held on Monday November 23, 2020.

During the event, Brothers received a chance to share reflections of their years and experiences as members of the Fraternity. “No matter where I’ve traveled, what has always stayed with me is the fact that our Fraternity is built on Friendship,” said Brother James Pierce. “And that friendship is essential to the soul. It’s true.”
