On Nov 2 and 3rd 2018. Zeta Omega held its annual Russell T. Adrine Achievement Week gala.
Achievement Week is an internationally mandated program of Omega Psi Phi with the inspiration coming from Bro. Carter G. Woodson – known to many as the father of Negro History Week.
In 2002, Zeta Omega Chapter amended the name locally, to honor Brother Russell T. Adrine, a longtime member of Zeta Omega chapter and distinguished attorney in Cleveland.
This two-night event allowed Zeta Omega to honor members of the chapter and members of the community that provide extraordinary service to the Greater Cleveland community. Friday night was jazz and jokes with internationally acclaimed jazz band, Forecast, and nationally known Comedian and member of Omega Psi Phi, Joe Torry.
Saturday evening was our formal gala in which we honored Mrs. Dessie Sanders as Educator of the Year, Rev. Stanley Miller as Community Leader of the Year and Coach Tedd Ginn, Sr., as the Citizen of the Year. Awards were also to “C-Town” for providing free haircuts in the community and an award and a check for $500 was awarded to our high school essay competition winner, Ms. Brooke King.
Russell Adrine’s son, (retired) Judge Ronald Adrine, also a member of Zeta Omega, and his family, continue to support the efforts mission of Achievement Week through an annual donation to the Zeta Omega Scholarship Fund.
