Students prepare to leave for the Phillies game last week.

WEST CHESTER—Last week, 28 students from the West Chester Area School District attended the Phillies game against the Atlanta Braves. And while the Phillies didn’t win, the students did.

The students, aged eight to fifteen, and their chaperones were given the opportunity to attend what was, for many, their first baseball games thanks to the Omega Delta Alumni Association Chapter of West Chester University – Omicron Mu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Krapf School Buses, and the Office of the Mayor of West Chester.

The Omicron Mu Nu Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity is an extremely active alumni group, constantly working to better serve the West Chester community, particularly by providing adult male mentorship to local students.

“The commitment of these fraternity brothers to provide positive male mentorship and give young students an opportunity like this is highly commendable, said West Chester Mayor Dianne Herrin. ” I’m grateful to them and to Blake Krapf for helping us build strong community here in West Chester. And the game was great fun!”
