President's Message

President Jeanneth Taylor
Lambda Phi Omega Chapter

President, Jeanneth TaylorOn behalf of our small yet talented chapter of Cleveland, Ohio, I thank you for visiting Lambda Phi Omega's website.

Lambda Phi Omega Chapter was chartered March 18, 1978 in Cleveland, Ohio by diverse, business savvy, highly educated women. Since that time, we have grown in membership largely due to the richness of our charter members and their continued love and devotion to their meaning of P.E.A.R.L.S. We belong to the Great, Great Lakes Region of our sorority which is comprised of 90 graduate and undergraduate chapters consisting of Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia, Western New York and Western Pennsylvania.

Our 28th International President, Carolyn House Stewart, believes that leadership development within our organization is critical to our survival in this second century of service. We shall devote our talents and resources through the 2012-2014 Program Initiatives that will enrich the quality of life for citizens in both local and global communities and promote empowerment and peace by way of Global Leadership Through Timeless Service. The areas of focus are:

  • I. Emerging Young Leaders
  • II. Health Initiatives
  • III. Global Poverty
  • IV. Economic Security Initiative
  • V. Social Justice and Human Rights
  • VI. Internal Leadership Training for External Service

Leaning On Pearls through Optimism-Moving Forward

Our Great Lakes Regional Director, Charlene Truitt-Nelson, believes and exhibits Service as the order of the day…every day. Under her administration, the Great Lakes Region will be both vigilant and purposeful in giving service to all mankind. We will be STRATEGIC in planning while executing MEASURABLE actions which will lead to ATTAINABLE goals that will be RELEVANT to our local communities and TRANSFERABLE to the world order. We will work SMART and continue to uplift mankind by our tireless efforts, and dedication to make this world a better place.

"Leaning on Pearls through Optimism-Moving Forward" is the theme under Lambda Phi Omega’s current administration. It is the chapter's aspiration and vision to optimistically carry forth the standards that have been established by our International Office, Regional level and then to be executed by our chapter of both local and international programming. By continuing to use our tools, tangible and intangible, of our beautiful, resourceful and knowledgeable chapter of Lambda Phi Omega, we will foster and nurture those in our community that need us and we shall serve as a beacon of light to lead the way into the next century.

Regards,

Jean Taylor
