A Letter From our Polemarch Polemarch Message Keith Maddox Greetings! On behalf of the Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter officers and members, I bring you greetings. The Frisco Alumni Chapter was chartered on March 12, 2022. We considered it a testament to our support of the fraternity to make a monetary impact within Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated and the Southwestern Province. We provided financial support to the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation, Incorporated at the Thomas J. Bradley donation level and a significant donation to the Southwestern Province Mentor-Up Program. We were honored to accomplish both before our chartering date. With over one hundred members, we are proud to be part of the Frisco, McKinney, and Prosper, Texas communities in which we work and live. Our members come from a number of professional fields in the North Texas area, and the breadth of talent and leadership is a blessing that we do not take lightly. We acknowledge that the LORD has and will direct our paths, not for our betterment but for that of our fellowman. Please, take time to visit us often as we have challenged ourselves to constantly improve and grow with the community. I welcome your ideas on how we can support our community. Please send me an email at email@example.com .

- History of Southwestern Provence | Frisco Alumni Kappas
Southwestern province The Southwestern Province of Kappa Alpha Psi, Incorporated consists of Arkansas, Louisiana, Southern Mississippi, New Mexico, and Texas. The Southwestern Province came into existence early in the 20th century in a series of developments under a succession of the Grand Polemarch. The Tenth Grand Chapter Meeting was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 30, 1920, to January 1, 1921, with the Lambda and Epsilon Chapters as hosts. George F. David II, Grand Keeper of the Exchequer, became the first Grand Polemarch who had not been nurtured by the Alpha Chapter under the influence of the Founders. David’s election was crucial. However, there was no need to worry. His administration would, in part, reflect the thoroughness with which the Fraternity’s ideas had been transmitted. The Grand Polemarch’s grasp of the organization’s needs was manifest in his initial steps to satisfy them. His first step was to divide the Fraternity into supervisory districts, an idea given him by his father, then a presiding Elder of the AME Church, and a member of the Fraternity. The creation of these first three districts laid the groundwork for the creation of the Southwestern Province. For more information, visit the Southwestern Province’s website at https://www.southwesternprovince1911.org/ . I've fought in three wars and three more wouldn't be too many to defend my country. I love America and as she has weaknesses or ills, I'll hold her hand. Gen. Daniel "Chappie James Jr., Kappa Alpha Psi Frisco (TX) alumni chapter history Learn More Become An Active Member Reclamation

- Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter Provides $14k in Scholarships | Kappa League 2023
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. Photos of Kappa Leaguers and their Families Accepting Scholarships FAC Kappas Lend a Hand to Frisco Youth 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.” Cedric Robinson Reporter, Frisco Alumni Chapter

- Frisco Alumni Chapter Hosts Political Candidate Forum
The Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter (FAC) of Kappa Alpha Psi, Fraternity, Incorporated sponsored a political candidate forum to help enlighten the citizenry of Frisco, Texas on the issues, viewpoints, and priorities of the candidates running for Mayor, City Council (places 5 & 6) and Frisco ISD School Board. The forum was held on Saturday, March 23, 2023, from 2 pm to 4 pm at Collin College 9700 Wade Boulevard in Frisco. The candidates, shown at the top of the picture above, participated in the forum. The list of candidates, in no particular order, is as follows: Mayoral Candidate Jeff Cheney City Council Candidates Laura Rummel, Place 5 Answer Azam, Place 5 Brian Livingston, Place 6 Frisco ISD Trustee Candidates Dynette Davis, Place 4 Mark Hill, Place 5 The forum, which was open to the public free of charge, was expertly moderated by Brother Sean Washington who managed the questions to the candidates and maintained an orderly process throughout. It also provided an opportunity for the residents of Frisco to ask questions and listen to answers directly from the people that will serve to shape their community. When asked what was gained by having that level of access to the candidates, FAC Chapter Polemarch Keith Maddox replied, “I believe the citizens of Frisco got an opportunity to interact with the candidates and present questions of their choosing. More importantly, I believe it gave the community an opportunity to recognize that we (FAC) are here in the community and willing to work to contribute to the well-being of the community, especially as Black men. Bottom line, it gave a positive image of the chapter and what we are capable of doing and the influence we will have in the community.” Also, in keeping with FAC’s commitment to service and education to the broader community, those in attendance were enlightened with a discussion on voter education and the importance of local elections. Brother William Langford, Political Committee Chairman stated, “The forum definitely supported FAC's commitment of service and education to the broader community as we were able to convene a forum that allowed our community to engage with key political figures and candidates in the Frisco community that have a direct impact on important issues that affect residents. I also believe that the forum educated residents on issues and opportunities that they otherwise would not have known and will help them make decisions on who they will support. The forum also educated the community on the importance of voting in local elections.” Thanks to the planning committee members for their efforts in pulling together to provide such a timely event to the Frisco community in advance of the impending elections: Keith Maddox, FAC Polemarch William Langford, Committee Chair Reggie Frazier Billy Fields Brandon Orr Chris Ziegler Alvin Benton In addition to the committee, a special thanks to the approximately 20 members of FAC for their attendance and assistance with logistics for the event.
