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 am extremely honored to welcome you to the SCAlpha webpage. I, Matthew Coverson-Springs, have the esteemed pleasure of being the 21st Assistant District Director for the South Carolina District of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. During my administration this 2019-2020 year, I plan to bring SCAlpha together on one Mission, as one District, One Light. By strengthening our unity using service, activism, and social activities, we can, in turn, increase the effectiveness of these same things and truly shine as Alpha’s Cornerstone.
By focusing our Light, the South Carolina District can increase the power and reach of our shine in the realms of community service, political advocacy, and social engagement. We must work as a unit, not as chapters, College, or Alumni brothers. As one collective front, we will push initiatives with high participation and purpose. One Mission, One District, One Light.
I look forward to my time serving as the 21st Assistant District Director of the South Carolina District. This 2019-2020, the future of SCAlpha shines bright!
Onwards and Upwards,
Bro. Matthew Coverson-Springs
21st Assistant District Director 2019-2020
