Family History

The Name of the Week Family can trace its lineage to the Alpha Delta Chapter. When the Chapter was formed Odelle Heimiller was one of the brothers who came to help get the Chapter running and served as Ron and Claire's Big Brother. The family got it name during during Gamma Pi's family naming phase. Unable to come up with a suitable and appropriate family name, the family kept changing it and trying out new names. One night at Applebee's while trying to figure out their next attempt at a family name, Joe Delozier stated that they were becoming the Name of the Week family. The name stuck, finally giving them a permanent identity.
