The Student Awards Banquet is sponsored by the Epsilon Xi Youth Educational Foundation in conjunction with the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. It will be held on Sunday April 29, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at the Lions Gate Hotel, 3410 McClellan Parkway Sacramento, CA 95652. The purpose of the banquet is to recognize graduating seniors for outstanding academic, athletic and leadership accomplishments. Along with recognizing the students for their accomplishments, there is a scholarship(s) awarded to outstanding graduating high school seniors.
In recent years we have recognized on average 280 students annually from 19 different area high schools. Specially, in 2017 we recognized 278 students from 15 schools. Each student will receive a Certificate of recognition and a Souvenir Booklet as a keepsake to memorialize the student's accomplishments at our banquet.
Although recognition is given for excellence in many areas, our primary focus is on academic attainment. 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. We look forward to seeing you at the 39th Annual Dr. Ervin Jackson Jr. Student Awards Banquet.
