Ohio Epsilon’s Todd Simmons was recently named the Student Board Member for the Board of Directors of Order of Omega. As a member of the Board of Directors of Order of Omega, Simmons is tasked with representing undergraduates across the country, along with communication concerns that face members of the fraternity and sorority community on an international level. He first heard of this position while attending the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values Conference, where he and Katelin Brendel, Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at the University of Akron, came in first place in an Order of Omega Case Study.
Currently at the University of Akron, Simmons serves as both the Interfraternity Council President and the Alpha Omicron Chapter of Order of Omega President. While serving as the President of Order of Omega, he has been able to expand on the organization while looking for more opportunities for the Greek honorary to become a larger part of his community. This experience, among others, brought to light his drive to better the Greek community and the leaders within it.
“This opportunity is one that I could not have imagined even a year ago,” said Simmons. “Having the opportunity to serve something so much bigger than myself is so humbling. Phi Delta Theta has given me the tools to truly become the greatest version of myself on a level that I never believed to be attainable.”
In the past, Simmons has had the pleasure to serve as the Community Service Chairman, New Member Educator, Executive Public Relations Chairman, Awards Chairman, and Secretary for the Ohio Epsilon Chapter. He has also experienced leadership opportunities within the International Fraternity such as the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute as a Whole Man Scholar in 2014 and a Peer Mentor in 2015 to name a few.
