During the early years of existence,
Epsilon Mu Omega's energetic group of sorors formulated plans for an
undergraduate chapter. Their dreams were realized on May 8, 1953 when
Delta Delta Chapter of Youngstown College received its chapter.
The chapter had many service oriented
projects during these early years to be "of greater service to all
mankind." The year 1950 proved to be a banner year for these pioneers
of our local chapter. The scholarship program was initiated with the
awarding of fifty dollar scholarship to Marcella Boyd, to attend the St.
Elizabeth School of Nursing. The awarding of scholarships became an
annual event. During this same year, the sorority sponsored a free
dental clinic. Also, the "Fashionetta and Models Ball" which was held
in October became an annual affair for several years. This affair
attracted outstanding national personalities. These included renowned
model Marva Louis Spaulding and Detroit hat designer Bill Howard.
The decade of
1950-60 was memorable in many ways. Chapter highlights included
honoring the Negro Drama
Players of New York performing the production, "Bell, Book and Candle."
Members of the sorority also, volunteered their services and items to
the American Cancer Society to meet its full quota of responsibility to
the National Projects Fund of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. As a reward
for their efforts Epsilon Mu Omega Chapter was named a 3 Gold Star
