A BRIEF HISTORY OF
EPSILON PI CHAPTER
OMEGA PSI PHI FRATERNITY, INC
Epsilon Pi Chapter of Omega Psi
Phi Fraternity, Incorporated was founded March 23, 1973. The Chapter was organized by Brothers: Jesse Williams, Jr., William C. Shumake, J. Paul Stephens, Meredith Chaplin, Jr. (Omega Chapter) , Juan R. Baughn, Johnnie Ponzie, John R. Lay, Lawrence Charleston, Jr., and Brad Lewis. Epsilon Pi was originally
chartered in Media, Pa. Epsilon Pi help charter the Alpha Eta Chapter on September 17, 1974. Because of unknown circumstances the
chapter became dormant after several meetings.
The Chapter remained dormant until the spring of 1981.
Through the urging of Brother John Maloney, the Second
District Representative at the time, the process of
reorganizing Epsilon Pi Chapter was implemented.
Brother Dexter L. Davis, Sr. and Brother Richard Brown, along with several other Omega men, accepted
the challenge to seek out interested brothers in the city of
Chester and vicinity who would be interested in the
reorganization of Epsilon Pi Chapter.
On April 17, 1981, a meeting was held at the old West End
Y.M.C.A. This meeting was attended by several key Second
District officers and representatives and a host of local
Omega Men. At the conclusion of the meeting Epsilon Pi
Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was reorganized and
officially moved to Chester, PA.
Through the efforts of the reorganizing brothers, Epsilon Pi
Chapter grew rapidly. Since the reorganization several lines
of Omega Men have been inducted into the Fraternity through
Today, Epsilon Pi Chapter is alive and well. The Chapter
continues to be a leader in the community in regards to
social, educational and community service.
