ST. PETERSBURG – During the last official meeting for the fiscal year 2018-19, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity-Eta Rho Chapter earlier this month recognized incoming Basileus President, Brother Javan Turner, for his many roles in service to the chapter.
Brother Turner’s most recent role was that of the 45th State Marshal, where Eta Rho Chapter hosted the 7th District Florida Statewide Organization Workshop in the city of St. Petersburg. The present Basileus, Brother James Jackson, Jr. awarded Brother Turner the much beloved and cherished Omega Service Award.
Brother Turner received a standing ovation from the brotherhood, for he is uniquely positioned to continue the chapters grow and positive public service in the community.
Brother Jackson, completing his 27th year in the fraternity, has over the years been Basileus five times. Eta Rho continues to be a leader and is recognized as such by the national organization.
