Polemarch's Father's Day Greeting to Brothers and Visitors!

Roderick Mack  - Huntsville (AL) Alumni Chapter Polemarch

Greeting Brothers,

This Sunday, June 17, 2018 is Father’s Day. A special day when we celebrate the men who have been instrumental to the development and nurturing of our lives. A father is that rock solid foundation which a family is built on. A father’s role is critical in influencing their child’s growth emotionally, socially, intellectually and
spiritually.

My father always said that any man can father a child, but it takes a real father to leave a legacy which their sons and daughters can be proud of reflecting. Let’s also pray for the fathers for one reason or another that are estranged from their love ones. The Huntsville Alumni Chapter have many brothers whom are great role models as Fathers. I wish you all a very Happy Father’s Day and my our Lord continue to bless you with the love, knowledge and wisdom which he has bestowed upon Fathers to pass down to their children for generations to come.

Yours in the Bond,

Rod

At the 83rd Grand Chapter Meeting in Orlando, Florida, 33nd Grand Polemarch Thomas L. Battles, Jr. bestowed the Guy Levis Grant Award to Aaron Dwayne Dixon. Brother Dixon, initiate of Gamma Phi of Alabama A&M University, was honored with Kappa Alpha Psi's highest recognition for an undergraduate member and congratulated by Brother Battles and the Southern Province Polemarch, Bertram K. Orum. Brother Dixon was recognized for "exemplary and extra meritorious collegiate community activities that reflectively advanced the Fraternity's image."

The Guy Levis Grant Award is one of five individual honors presented by Kappa Alpha Psi at its annual or bi-annual Grand Chapter meetings. It was established in 1974 at the 59th Grand Chapter Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, by 21st Grand Polemarch Elbert E. Allen. The award is named after the fraternity's founder, Guy Levis Grant. The award was first presented in 1976 at the 60th Grand Chapter Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Guy Levis Grant Award is the highest award reserved solely for undergraduate members of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity; it is bestowed upon collegiate members who demonstrate scholarship, community leadership, and meritorious achievement in school, as well as in the local community or region. Recipients are selected based on petitions submitted to the Achievement Commission, a 13-member committee appointed by the Grand Polemarch.  Polemarch Carlen J. Chestang, Jr. and all members of the Huntsville Alumni Chapter salute Brother Aaron Dwayne Dixon on this high honor.
