ALBANY — The Eta Omicron Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity has awarded a total of $5,000 in scholarships to five students for the 2015-16 school year.
The scholarship recipients are Durrann Brown, an Albany High School graduate who’s attending Morehouse College; Monroe Comprehensive High School graduates RaShawn Hall, who’s attending Tuskegee University, and Brenton Truitt, who’s attending Point University, and Westover High School graduates Demetris McCray, who’s attending the University of Georgia, and Adam Landin, who’s attending Mercer University.
