We hosted and co-sponsored our 25th Annual College Fair on November 6, 2013. It is truly special to have provided this service to the community for 25 years. We continue to expose our young people to the best colleges and universities this country has to offer. We also provided an opportunity for the students and parents to learn about funding and scholarship opportunities as well. This event was coordinated by Brothers Darryl Campbell and Roger Doster and Hal Heard who allowed us to use his former high school, Romulus HS.
For the past 24 years, the Kappas have been dedicated to providing this very special event for students looking to get a head start on their future.This year marks our 25th Annual College Fair. This Annual College Fair for high school and middle school students will be held at Romulus High School this year. We continue to expose our young people to the best colleges and universities this country offers. Last year, over 400 students attended this event and we want to increase the attendance this year. This is an opportunity for students and parents to preview colleges admissions requirements and obtain financial aid information. Students, parents, and anyone interested in learning more about college and financial aid are invited to attend.
During another historical event for our chapter, 14 members from our Kappa family marched (actual only 7, the other 7 rode in cars) in the Parade (Michael Kinloch, Jeff Holland, Allen Mason, Phil Anderson, Rod Kilgore, Joe Little, Richard Poole, Tim Lipkin, Mel Roper, Perrin Emanuel, Darryl Campbell, Eron Clifford, Calvin Bradbury and Tyler Kinloch. There were four (4) cars in the Parade with our chapter logo. The Brothers had a great time marching in the parade and passing out candy to the on lookers.
Special thanks to Brothers Norm Howard, Darryl Campbell, Roger Doster, and Hollis Jordan for making our First Annual African-American Men’s Health Summit such a huge success. The event was held on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at the University of Michigan in partnership with the University of Michigan Health System Program for Multicultural Health and Grace Fellowship Church.
The event was designed to: 1. Raise awareness of health issues facing men; 2. Provide information on disease prevention, early detection and treatment options; 3. report outcomes of health needs survey; 4. Establish a plan for future community health education workshops; and, 5. Identify and recruit community health advocates.
