The Omega Psi Phi graduate fraternity has taken Salt Lake City's Riley Elementary under its wing. The predominantly African American fraternity has teamed up with the University of Utah men's basketball squad to adopt the Title I (lowincome) school.
The fraternity will raise money for the Glendale school, stage motivational assemblies and try to be a positive presence on a campus where 84 percent of students are ethnic minorities, including 7 percent African American and 62 percent Latino. The Omegas, as they're called, will also donate $50,000 in school supplies, coats and warm clothes.
