Gamma Rho Chapter


On March 30, 2019, Gamma Rho brought in seven new brothers into the fraternity.  From right to left:  Edward Dillion, Adrian Smith-Thompson, William Evans, Kevin Green, Oliver Celestin, Ray Robinson and Derrick Carter.

On behalf of Gamma Rho, I would like to thank the community for over fifty years of continuous support and partnership.  As a result, this collaborative effort has allowed us to strengthen and build a strong community through education and outreach programs. I would like to acknowledge and thank the brothers of Gamma Rho Chapter for their unwavering commitment and dedication to making our program effective and successful.  Lastly, I hope this website will be a convenient information resource on events and activities related to our chapter.
