Fatherhood Initiative and Mentoring August 2020


On August 12, 2020, Brother Marcus Bedford, past Basileus Tau Tau Chapter, and mentor for Omega Educational Foundation, and Mary his wife took his Mentee Roger McMillan to San Jose State University.

Roger McMillian has been accepted to San Jose State University and is a chemical engineering major. Roger is also Tau Tau Chapter’s 2019 High School Essay contest winner, and 12th District winner. Roger was a regular participant at the Youth Leadership Conference.

He started living with Brother Bedford 2-years ago at the age of 16, after his father passed away. Brother Bedford explained to Roger that “college was a must”. Subsequently, he was accepted.

He attended Cabrillo High School in Long Beach, where he played baseball and was a star football player.

The brothers of Tau Tau Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. are committed to mentoring neighborhood youth in the surrounding communities to lift them up. Hence our motto, “Lifting as we Climb”.

Brother Bedford is a prime example of this motto.
