Greetings from the Alpha Beta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated in Lexington, KY. Our fraternity continues to strive toward the aims of manly deeds, scholarship and love for all mankind that were proposed by our founders 110 years ago. We aspire to make a difference in the lives of the citizens of Lexington and our surrounding communities.
With this in mind, we continue to work with the William Wells Brown School Reading, Writing and Rewards Program. This program focuses on improving educational success through making reading fun and rewarding for at-risk students. Additionally, we want to expand our reach to other underserved populations to truly make an impact and provide advocacy for our community. Finally, we seek to continue in our recognition of students in continuing education by our award of the annual college scholarship and Unity Breakfast Essay Scholarships.
With the current climate of Lexington, I feel much can be done to make the community a showcase for unity. We see the issues which need to be addressed, now it’s up to us as a fraternity and to all citizens to affect change. I ask that we all work cooperatively to make our community and the lives of those who reside here better.
