About Chi Tau Chapter

The establishment of Chi Tau Chapter began in 1960 when Mr. Cecil Boston, the principal of Jones High School, invited Judge Lawson E. Thomas to be their commencement speaker for that year's graduating class. Mr. Boston invited a group of Omega Men to a reception for Bro. Thomas, and from this meeting brothers C.J. Manigault, William V. Nixon, Robert L. Howard, Willie B. Pete, Paul K. Tisdale, Ernest Niblack, Johnny L. Toney, Robert W. Hunt, Willie G. Holt, and G.H. Jones met at Murchison Terrace Housing Office for several months to organize and obtain a charter. 

 

In March of 1961 at Shiloh Baptist Church, through the perseverance of these Omega Men, Chi Tau Chapter was founded. The chapter received its charter on January 8, 1962. Today there are over 130 active members in the chapter that have made and demonstrated a commitment to serve the communities within Orlando.
