So instead of the 6 scholarships we planned to give we are now giving away a 7th Scholarships this year. So without Further ado:

    2021 Unstoppable Scholarship Winners:

    $2000 Scholarship – Conner Temple

    $1500 Scholarship – Marshall Morgan

    $2500 Scholarship – Josiah Bradley

    $1000 Scholarship – Meridith McGee

    $1000 Scholarship – Julianne Torres

    $1000 Scholarship – Daisy Ruiz

    $1000 Scholarship – Earl Wright

    We would like to congratulate all the winners and would like to thank all those that applied for our scholarships this year. We wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors at the Universities and Colleges you have chosen to attend. We hope that you will look for Omega Delta Phi on your campuses and join us in our Philanthropy and Community Service throughout the year.

    2021 Rush Invite from the UTD Undergraduate Chapter

    Good Morning Alumni,

    Since the start of this pandemic, we have all faced challenges that have been unique in nature due to the environment we find ourselves in. These difficulties have not only affected us as individuals but also in our careers, with our families and friends, and the ways we use to interact. The active chapter has been no stranger to these issues as for the past year we have had to adapt to an online setting as we achieve meeting the needs and concerns of the community, maintaining our sacraments, and graduating our members. As the new academic year starts, we want to excel in every goal which includes having a successful rush.

    We want to invite you, the alumni body, to our rush events to not only meet our interest but also give the active chapter the opportunity to hang out with our alumni brothers in the name of Unity. Please read below to see the details regarding our events:

    Thank you for your help, and please enjoy our August Newsletter below:


    ir weekend Chairman Message: 

    Happy August brothers! 

    There's only a few weeks of summer left to catch a tan on the river or on the lake! 

    We had a great time in our July events, most notably sharing ideas with brothers in Las Vegas and the election of our new national president. 

    National conference has always been an event near and dear to my heart.  I hope that those that were able to attend the national conference were able to leave a little bit more inspired. I hope their weekend conversations helped challenge them to push their chapter to the next level of achievement. I hope they could see the hard work that our brothers are putting in throughout the nation, and be reminded that we are all doing our part to further the vision of Omega Delta Phi.

    The DFWAA has carried on this vision for the past 21 years. Brothers, it is time that we take this organization to the heights that it is destined to achieve. I encourage you to get involved in the DFWAA, attend a meeting, an event, or hang out with a line brother. It is only together that we have made it this far and it is only together that we will continue to grow and succeed.  

    Don't miss out on the next event,  join the DFWAA Monthly text alerts via the Remind app, and keep updated on the happenings in the DFW.  https://www.remind.com/join/6k8hd6

    Have a great month everyone!

    July Wrap Up:

     

    Street Taco Night for the UFC Fight!

     


    Thank you to those that were able to attend our UFC watch party for the Mcgreggor vs Poirier. We had street tacos stacked, drinks on deck,  and together witnessed the cringeworthy end of an era on the 10ft x 10ft screen.

    Apodaca wins big in Vegas!

    Congratulations to DFWAA member, Jesus "Chu Chu" Apodaca, for being elected ODPhi National President! While all 3 candidates have volunteered countless hours to better our organization over the years, it is Apodaca's vision that will lead ODPhi forward over the next 3 years. We thank all candidates for their dedication to our fraternity and we are confident that our new leadership will bring new ideas to improve our organization.

    National rep position applications are currently open. If you feel you have the qualifications and drive to be part of Apodaca's administration, click here to view openings.

    June Wrap Up:

    Jessie Tapia Reels In Record Breaking** Catch!

    **Record Breaking in this case is defined as the largest fish out of the sample of those caught by the 14 people that attended this particular fishing trip. Not to say that any other data or research was evaluated when making this claim.

     



    June started off with our brotherhood deep sea fishing trip to Galveston, TX. In all 14 attended the weekend which included arcade games, shuffleboard, pool tournaments, some fine AirBNB home cooking, and of course a 12-hour fishing tour.

    While everyone caught their limit, Jessie Tapia, the "Snapper Whisperer", snagged (what I can only guess to be) a 13lb+ Red Snapper to win our group challenge.  Special thanks to our Service Chair, Steven Olson, who brought this awesome trip together.

    If you would like to see this trip become an annual DFWAA outing, please let us know! 

     

    DFWAA Tees Off For a Great Cause!

    On Friday June 18th, through the generous donation of one of our members, the DFWAA was able to send a few of our knights to support the Knights of Columbus Council 5052's 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament.

    Not to brag, but the words "new high score" might have been mentioned, so those of you reading better bring your "A" game when you attend the upcoming Knights Classic Sponsored by Liberty Realty Advisors on October 8th!

    All in all we had great weather and a great time meeting the members of Council 5052!

    El Chapa Sets Sail on Lake Lewisville!

    Last month Active brothers were invited to set sail on Lewisville Lake with former Chairman, JJ Chapa of Alpha Chapter.

    Chairman Message: 

    Hello everyone, and congratulations to all of our 2021 May graduates! 

    I can't believe we are already 1/3 of the way through 2021. April was jam packed with opportunities to get involved in ODPhi around the state, and I am thankful to all the brothers that took the time to hang out with me over the past month. Let's hope all those April showers, lead to May flowers, as well as full rivers for tubing this summer! 

    Lastly, May the HYPE be with you, Brothers!

    Mike Dominguez 

    April Wrap Up:


    DFWAA Rocks the 4 Links Classic!

     

    To kick off the month, a few members from the DFWAA had a chance to network with our San Antonio Alumni brothers at their annual 4 Links Golf Tournament. Though we were unable to bring back the 1st place trophy, we thank the SAAA for their hospitality and for providing some ideas on how to improve our Knights Classic in the Fall.


    North Texas Regionals at West Texas A&M in Canyon, TX!


    The weekend of April 9th, the North Texas Region traveled to Canyon, TX  for their annual regionals event. There we had the opportunity to meet the new undergraduates of the North Texas Region, hike the "Lighthouse Trail" in Palo Duro Canyon, and to recruit a few of the new graduates into the DFWAA. A sincere thank you, and welcome to our 6 newest alumni brothers!

We look forward to seeing you all out at the next event! 



    The National Presidential Campaign continues to heat up!

    National Presidential candidates Bryan Garcia, Jesus Apodaca, and Lateef Ipaye met on the debate stage once again at the North Texas Regional Weekend in Canyon, Tx. Moderator and Regional Director, Bryan Parra, asked the hard hitting questions in hopes to reveal which brother has the right stuff to lead Omega Delta Phi for the next 3 years.

    After the event, the DFWAA hired a 3rd party polling company to compile preliminary poll results. In a stunning upset, write-in wildcard, Paula Macon, has been deemed in the lead, and the candidate to beat in the coming months!

    Membership Update:

    Anyone else having Déjà vu?!?

    Congratulations to Chapter of the Month, DELTA Chapter!

    We had 153% amazing increase in membership in February. As much as it pains me to compliment an Aggie, the Delta Bros have shown they mean business this year, as they rally their brothers to be part of the One DFW!

    That being said, Delta now makes up 18% (-8%) of our total membership, with the top 5 chapters only needing 4 or less new recruits in order to snag that #1 spot for next month.

    So, if you are enjoying anything we are doing this year, share the love with any brothers that you know in the area!

    Don't see your chapter listed in the graph above?
