Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter Provides $14k in Scholarships During 2023 Kappa League Closeout and National Signing Day Ceremony
The newly chartered Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter awarded $2000 scholarships to each member of its first Kappa League graduating class of seven High School seniors during the inaugural Kappa League Close Out Ceremony and National Signing Day Event held Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Baylor Scott & White Physical Therapy Center, 3800 Gaylord Parkway in Frisco Texas.
The Kappa League event was the culmination of FAC’s commitment to service in the Frisco community and the goals and ideals of Kappa League’s mission to help young men grow, receive, and develop their leadership talents in every phase of human endeavor.
FAC Kappas Provide $2k Scholarships for Graduating Seniors
Each of the graduating seniors in the program received a scholarship to be used to further their education at the college/university of their choosing along with the commitment of the FAC for continued guidance and moral support as they navigate the waters of college/university life.
FAC Polemarch, Brother Keith Maddox provided the following summation on the progress made thus far, “I would say that our first year was outstanding! Proverbs 22:6 states, “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” The Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Incorporated, took this to heart by mentoring on average over 30 young men monthly. The young men were exposed [to] and interacted with men of varying professional skills and experience. More so, the young men were given the opportunity to engage and have in-depth discussions on topics and issues that were relevant to their lives today as well as what they may face as adult black men. The year culminated with the awarding of $2,000 scholarships to those Kappa Leaguers that were graduating high school.

In addition to the graduating seniors, FAC also provided those students in the program that are not yet graduating with awards in the form of certificates as congratulations for their involvement in the program and sincere desire for their continued participation.
Brother Aaron Pugh, Chairman of the FAC Kappa League Committee, is pleased with the progress so far and believes that the event will continue to evolve over time, “The 2022-2023 academic year concluded our inaugural year for our Kappa League Program. We had almost 50 students in total; of which, all seven high school seniors received scholarships. As a result, this provides motivation to continue serving and achieving success. I am humbled to have served as the 2022-2023 Kappa League Chairman for Frisco (TX) Alumni, and I look forward to serving this upcoming 2023-2024 academic and getting more engagement from the brothers and the community. We as a Chapter are truly blessed.”
In all, there were more than 70 members of FAC, Kappa Leaguers, and their parents in attendance for the ceremony.
Although off to an impressive start, Polemarch Keith Maddox is looking forward to even greater heights for the program moving forward, “Going forward, the Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter plans to build on the first-year success of its Kappa League Program by expanding the opportunities offered, so that every field of Human Endeavor is made available to the young men participating in the program. In addition, Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter plans to continue to work in the community to solicit and build support to generate recognition to make its Kappa League Program exemplary within Kappa and the North Texas region.”
