The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni Chapter, the Silhouettes, Delta Nu and Sigma Chapters planned and executed what was arguably the best Northern Province Council ever, based on feedback from many brothers and guest who attended this year’s NPC and social events. The entire chapter contributed to make the experience unforgettable for everyone in attendance. Special thanks to Brother Phil Anderson for coordinating the council for our chapter.
The Kappas registration was the highest in recent years and the Silhouettes registration was the highest in the NPC history. There were 67 brothers from our chapter who registered and 32 of our Silhouettes who did the same. The 67th NPC Weekend was one of the best weekends in our chapter’s rich history. There were so many highlights and most of them were unparalleled to events held during other NPCs. “You can dream, create, design, and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality”—Walt Disney. Thank you brothers for having a mind to work while keeping your eyes on the prize and finishing strong – God has really blessed our chapter.
Congratulations to Brother Isadore L. King on receiving the Robert L. Gordon Achievement Award. This award is the highest award bestowed upon a brother from the Northern Province. The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni Chapter is very proud of Brother King and appreciates all the contributions he makes to the Chapter.
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.
