A group of Dunbar Elementary School students attended the Omega Manhood Leadership Institute (OMLI) and Eta Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Achievement Week Awards Banquet.
The Achievement Week program, first celebrated in 1921, began as a project inspired by  Carter G. Woodson. Mr. Woodson advocated for the establishment of an annual Black History observance. Today, that observance is called Black History Month. The Achievement Week Banquet, held in conjunction with the anniversary of the founding of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., is held to honor individuals who uplift their communities.
This year’s keynote speaker was retired U.S. Army General William “Kip” Ward, inaugural commander of the U.S. Army’s Africa Command. The event was held on Sunday, November 6, 2016.
