I am honored to lead our beloved Fraternity as Chapter President. Thank you for entrusting me to move this great Chapter onward and upward. I would like to take this opportunity to share the Vision going forward. I strongly believe we will be “An Entrusted Leader in the Community through Planning, Engaging, and Connecting while sustaining the Fraternity’s Mission.” Entrusted means that we will be responsible for whatever we commit to do. Planning: The Fraternity expects that “All programs are well planned, start on time and conform to fraternal policies and protocols”. Engaging entails more community involvement to understand how best to advocate for them, which supports our mission of community advocacy. Connecting means continuing to grow our bond as Men to better understand our strengths and weaknesses so that we may encourage and grow our Chapter of Men in support of our mission.
I have started my journey in Omicron Alpha Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. as the Chairman of the Go-To-High School Go-To-College National Program where we established and stood up the “G4” (Go Getters Goal Getters) Program. The “G4” Program is currently known as the “Alpha Academy” of Fredericksburg. Alpha Academy is an Educational and Mentoring Program for our youths. This program was first established at Stafford High School (Stafford, VA), and now has moved to Chancellor Middle School (Fredericksburg, VA) and Freedom Middle School (Fredericksburg) respectively. I was elected as the Associate Editor of “The Sphinx” and Historian where I wrote and submitted several articles to “The Sphinx” magazine regarding the Chapter community service efforts. I served as the Chairman for our Project Alpha National Program. Project Alpha is conducted once per year. It is designed to provide education, motivation and skill building on issues of responsibility, relationships, teen pregnancy/fatherhood, and sexually transmitted diseases for young males’ ages 12-18 years. Later, I was elected as the Director of Education and Scholarship (DES). As DES, I was responsible for the Chapter’s Education and Scholarship Program, which includes activities and processes for the selection and monetary awards to potential High School Graduates in our Community to further their education. After serving as DES, I was elected as the Vice-President to continue collaborating, organizing, coordinating, and supporting the Fraternity’s mission in areas needed as we continue to move onward and upward. I am extremely excited to work side by side with creative minds, and dedicated Men of our Fraternity. May God continue to bless all you!
