“The Kappa Spirit is an inward sensibility of brotherhood which demands loyalty,
cooperation and responsibility that gives practical assurance to the meaningful survival of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated.” Greetings Brothers, April is here and spring has arrived!!!! We had an excellent turn out at Province Council and as many know now, we won the reclamation award for medium size chapter for the Province. I will bring the award to the meeting and thank the efforts of our committee. Now that you have been reclaimed, it is time to put in the work brothers. Let us end our chapter year on great note as we approach conclave. We completed our college tour this past weekend (April 11, 2015) and it was a great beginning for many to come. I look forward to seeing all of you at the April meeting and god bless your journeys. Yours in the Bond, XtÜÄ eA YÄxtÜç
