The Student Awards Banquet is sponsored by the Epsilon Xi Youth Educational Foundation in conjunction with the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. The banquet will be held on Sunday, May 3, 2020,
at the Lions Gate Hotel, 3410 McClellan Parkway Sacramento, CA 95652.
The purpose of the banquet is to recognize graduating African American seniors for outstanding academic, athletic and leadership accomplishments.
The banquet also provides us the opportunity to recognize our scholarship recipients. Each year two to four students are awarded scholarships for their outstanding accomplishments. These accomplishments are detailed in their written statements in the Scholarship Application that is submitted to the Scholarship Committee.
With considerable assistance from educators and counselors in the Sacramento area school district; In recent years we have recognized on average 280 students annually from 19 different area high schools. In 2018 we recognized 280 students from 16 schools.
All students in attendance will receive a Certificate of Recognition and a Souvenir Booklet as a keepsake to memorialize the student's accomplishments.
Each student attends the banquet at no cost to them. Your support will assist in our efforts to recognize each of the 280+ students that we will honor.
The Epsilon Xi Youth Educational Foundation is recognized as a 501C3 entity. Your charitable contribution/donation is considered tax-deductible.
It is the hope of the fraternity that the recognition bestowed at this banquet will motivate and encourage these students to continue their excellence in their future educational and career endeavors.
