Alpha Phi Omega - Its Founding and History Alpha Phi Omega - Its Founding and History Presentation Transcript

  • By Emma Wise
  •  Emma Wise, a graduate of Allegheny College, joined Alpha Phi Omega in 2009. Since that time, Emma Wise has completed numerous service projects both through the organization and on an individual level.
  •  A national coeducational service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega was founded in 1925 by United States Navy veteran Frank Reed Horton. Mr. Horton had served in World War I and, backed by his studies at Boston University Law School, had been assigned to hear court martial cases against others in his division. This experience led him to reflect on the need for America's youth to develop strong values and learn what it meant to be a responsible adult member of society.
  •  After his service ended, he enrolled in Lafayette College. Through friends he met there, he became involved in scouting and encountered the codes of behavior laid out in the Scout Law and Scout Oath. Inspired by the tenets of service, leadership, and responsibility that formed the basis of scouting, he created a Greek organization that would embody the same values. Alpha Phi Omega was thus born and has since developed into a nationwide organization with partnerships abroad.
