Tuesday, December 3, 2013

ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH - St. John the Baptist Parish President Natalie Robottom was recently honored as Citizen of the Year by the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Phi Iota Iota Chapter. 

Robottom was selected for this award because of her unusual contributions to humanity as a person of local/regional/national recognition, acclaimed by a significant segment of society for outstanding contributions to the welfare of mankind. Robottom has worked closely with the Omegas during fraternity sponsored events, of both a civic and community nature.  Robottom is supportive of the group's stance on education and giving back to the community through their participation in parish events.

“It is indeed a great honor to accept the Omega Psi Phi Citizen of the Year award in the midst of our recovery efforts.  Although my path to success was paved with great educational opportunities, it would not have been possible without those who came before me.  Partnering with organizations like the Omegas contributes to the well-being of our community and it provides opportunities for future generations.”

The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is the first international fraternal organization to be founded on the campus of an historically black college.  There are many notable Omega Men recognized as leaders in the arts, the sciences, academics, athletics, business, civil rights, education, government, and science sectors at the local, national and international level.  Local chapter, Phi Iota Iota, is located in LaPlace and led by St. John the Baptist Parish residents.   For more information on the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, visit
