The chapter participated in a Career Fair hosted by Romulus High School on Thursday, November 14. This event was coordinated by Brothers Roger Doster and Melvin Roper. The former principal of Romulus High School is Brother Hal Heard. Brother Roper addressed science, and human relation skills while Brother Doster addressed how to improve your current study habits and working at a college or university. Brother Kinloch focused on engineering/technical career opportunities and requirements. Brother Andre Stringfellow talked about life skills. The audience was primarily 10th and 12th graders. The purpose of the career day was to assist in preparation for college and to provide gap assistance such as Community College. In total, approximately 30 presenters — not all Kappa Men — attended, representing their occupations.
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.
