The Fort Bend Alumni chapter was a culmination of 2 years of discussion that began in 2016 among long-standing and committed brothers. It became evident that there was a strong pocket of Iota Phi Theta® members in the area of Fort Bend County. It was agreed that a new alumni chapter in the Greater Houston area, servicing Fort Bend County and Southwest Houston would continue and enhance the growth and development of Iota Phi Theta® while co-existing with the other alumni chapters.
On Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 the Gamma Upsilon Omega alumni chapter received its charter.
The charter members of Gamma Upsilon Omega are Bro. John Allen, Bro. Geoffrey Boykins, Bro. John Branch, Bro. Dana Earls, Bro. Gibbs Hightower IV, Bro. Kofi Minta, Bro. Christopher O' Banner, Bro. Gregory Reeves Jr., Bro. Bryan Thompson, and Bro. Torrey Thompson.
