Who said Black Greek Lettered Organizations do not promote brotherhood/sisterhood, leadership and scholarship to students on the yard?

Members of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. Alpha Mu Chapter continues to prove this thought wrong by serving their respected HBCU community at Central State University.

These brothers of Iota recently won the prestigious Ohio Valley Region ‘Chapter of the Year’ award during the Spring Regional in Cleveland, Ohio. Rashad Riley, the chapter’s president, also won the ‘Undergraduate Brother of the Year’ award.
