The Annual Combined Session of the Order of the Pythagorans and Grand Girls Assembly

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

The 2018 Grand Session of the Order of Pythagorans and the Grand Girls Assembly, the boys and girls youth chapters, respectively, of the Order of the Eastern Star, was held on July 12-15 on the campus of the University of Toledo.

Approximately 125 boys attended the weekend conference as members of the Order of the Pythagorans. The Order was established 73 years ago in the State of Ohio in order to emphasize programs for educational, social, vocational and moral development.

Two hundred girls were present for the 66rd meeting of the Grand Girls Assembly, which was organized in 1952 and dedicated to the development of character in youth.

The Grand Session, which rotates around the State of Ohio, was hosted this year by The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Ohio.

The purpose of the Grand Session is to give youth from around the state the opportunity to fellowship and to compete in a range of activities – in the classroom and on the playing fields.

Eric Warren, the R.W. Director of Youth Activities, led the Pythagorans events and Cheryl Spencer, Grand Director of Youth Activities, led the Girls Assembly.

Daytime activities included sessions devoted to breakouts on math, science and other educational topics along with voting sessions for elected officials.

The Awards Banquet on Saturday night featured the Grand Royal Queen Banquet as Jalen Keaton, R.V. grand senior counselor, and Aaliyah Colbert, grand royal princess, served as master and mistress of ceremonies, respectively.

The event culminated with presentations, acknowledgement and awards with remarks offered by Grand Royal Queen, Jocelyn Edwards, and the Most Valiant Grand Master Counselor, John Cook.

On Sunday, the main event was a divine service held in the Student Union and attended by both youth groups. Rev. Allen Smith, Jr. offered the sermon.

The scripture reading was offered by the newly-elected Most Valiant Grand Master Counselor Jordan Young and the invocation offered by the newly-elected Grand Royal Queen Tyra Jones
