Margie Chrichlow Smith was the first president of Rho Eta Omega Chapter chartered on May 21, 1988. Under her leadership our first signature program, “Project YES” which stood for Youth Enrichment Services was implemented. This program served youths in grades five through eleven. It evolved into another signature program called “Ride for Knowledge”, where high school students were introduced to Historically Black Colleges and Universities first through various pre-college seminars and finally via a bus tour of various HBCUs. We celebrate her leadership by offering this scholarship.
