Gwendolyn M. Floyd was the second president of Beta Pi Omega Chapter. Her tenure is known to be during the early 1940’s. She was characterized as being a history teacher, active in the community forever, and a role-model to many. She obtained her B.S. in Education at Fisk University. There she was initiated into Pi Chapter in 1933. As a founder of Beta Pi Omega, Floyd recalled a dire financial concern in the Little Rock Black community during 1937. Black leaders were urging all to pool their talents and financial resources into the organizations already established instead of forming new ones. Our Founders’ determination prevailed because as Floyd said, “ We were extremely dedicated to the vows we had made as undergraduates.” As President, Floyd’s significant accomplishments were setting up and developing “Fashionetta” and giving small financial awards to Philander Smith College students.
