Honoring Men and Women of Excellence

This year the ladies of Omicron Alpha Zeta put a little twist on the Finer Womanhood Celebration and decided to recognize men as well as women. The chapter selected as honorees several citizens who have made a positive impact in Sumter and/or surrounding counties in various professions and in community service. Among the 33 honorees were the school superintendent, principals, pastors, law enforcement officers, university officials, and community servant leaders.

The awards banquet was held on March 30 on the campus of South GA Technical College in Americus. The theme for the occasion was “Building Better Communities through Service, Leadership and Education. The speaker for this event was Ms. Chrislyn Turner, the immediate past Southeastern Regional Director of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., of Marietta, GA.  

During the Celebration, a woman from both the undergraduate and graduate chapter, was honoered as Zeta of the Year. Ms. Kuwanza Frazier, chapter president for Mu Mu Chapter at Georgia Southwestern State University was presented with the undergraduate Zeta of the Year award. Ms. Kina Davis, Z-HOPE Coordinator, in addition to Undergraduate Advisor to Mu Mu, was presented the graduate chapter Zeta of the Year.
