Beta Theta Chapter

“Cold Blooded 21”


Cold Blooded 21

Pictured are 18 band members of the “Cold       Blooded 21” Beta Theta Charter line

On December 12, 1969, twenty-one of the most academically gifted minds and “Who’s Who” on the campus of what is now Mississippi Valley State University, chartered the Beta Theta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.  They laid the foundation for a bridge that paved a path for many young men to follow.  We will forever be internally grateful to these young men who became known as the “Cold Blooded 21”. 

*Bro. Lawrence Horn (59-Phi Psi, Langston University) served as the first Dean of Pledges and also served as the first Faculty Advisor.

*Bro. Jimmy L. Hopkins (Assistant Supt./Hattiesburg School District) became the first Basileus of Beta Theta.

*Bro. Ulysses E. Smith was the first KRS.

*Bro. Jameson L. Townsend was the first Beta Theta brother to enter Omega Chapter.

Since the founding of Beta Theta, its members have played a major role in the cultural, social, and civic life of their respected families and communities. We salute each and every brother who has crossed the “Burning Sands” at the Mighty Beta Theta.
