From the District Director
“GOODWILL is the monarch of this House. Men, unacquainted, enter, shake hands,
exchange greetings, and depart friends.”
Welcome to the House of Alpha!
As the 10th District Director of South Carolina, I extend to you a warm welcome to our House. Known to many as ‘The Cornerstone of Alpha South’, our district is a very unique one because we have brothers from every profession and walk in life, who bring their talents, skills, and expertise to the table daily to help move our great fraternity, ‘onward and upward’. South Carolina District which reaches from the Low Country to Upstate; from the Midland to Peedee, is comprised of approximately 700 brothers actively participating on one of the 17 alumni chapters and/or 15 college chapters. Having such a wide cadre of brothers, there’s no wondering as to why our brotherhood is strong and robust.
As you peruse our website, you will see that we are carrying out the mandates and ideals of the seven (7) Founders of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., affectionately known by us as ‘The Jewels’. Whether it’s participating in signature projects and/or special initiatives like ‘A Voteless People, Is a Hopeless People’, March of Dimes/March for Babies, Big Brothers/Big Sisters mentoring initiative, Project Alpha, Brother’s Keepers, or the Leadership Development Citizenship Education Initiative, the South Carolina District is on the front line helping to lead these efforts.
The Brothers of South Carolina realize that if we are to remain relevant and viable, we must look for #anew and innovative ways to develop leaders, promote brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities. If we do that, we can stand boldly on the fact that we are truly “First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All.”
Best Wishes and Warmest Regards,
South Carolina District Director
From the Assistant District Director
Brothers and Visitors:
I would like to start by thanking you for entrusting me with the role of Assistant District Director (ADD) for the District of South Carolina. My goal is to inspire, support, and assist my brothers in both the District and throughout the Region while in this position.
I look forward to working closely with the district and regional leadership to bring positive changes and bring some of my new plans to life. As I mentioned in my campaign and candidate speech, I am going to work vigorously to empower the voices of our smaller chapters, build a stronger network of support for undergraduate brothers, and to promote our young entrepreneurs. Again, I would not be in this position nor would I be able to progressively help our District without the assistance of all of you that make up this great District of South Carolina. And as I embark on this journey, I simply ask for your support and prayers. Let us continue to do the work of Alpha. I look forward to working with each of you.
