Brothers, Happy Founders’ Day!
On this day, I bring you greetings from the road as I head to Memphis for our National Founders’ Day event.
As we celebrate the founding of our grand fraternity, let us remember the 10 men who paved the way for all of us. Also, let us celebrate the first century of Kappa…the experiences had, the impacts made and the bonds forged. Furthermore, let us look to the future…what Kappa can be and how we can have an effect on our communities. It is the strength of knowing our past that will help us succeed in the future, both as an organization and as individuals.
While the fraternity hit an important milestone – its century mark – this past year, the journey of Kappa continues. It has been said that “life is a remarkable journey that takes us up and down a road of happiness [and] growth … and sometimes pain and hardship.” The journey within Kappa is no different. Remember that it is these experiences that shape us and, collectively, shape the Fraternity.
Lastly, I trust that each of us will continue to create and build the culture of achievement that makes Kappa Alpha Psi a place in which undergraduate and alumni alike can thrive and of which we can be proud.
Brothers, have a safe and happy Founders’ Day, and hold the dream of our beloved Founders high in your heart. “Here’s life and strength. Here’s health and wealth. Here’s all in Phi Nu Pi.”
Yours in the Bond,
Korlon L. Kilpatrick

We pause for a moment to thank all our brothers and their families on this Veteran's Day. Thank you for all that you do.
I had a great time visiting with the brothers of Theta Chapter (Northwestern and Loyola) and Evanston Alumni. We started the evening at a student event on the campus of Loyola University. The brothers of Theta were stepping in an event hosted by the Pan-Asian American Student Association. The event showcased the talents of many of the difficult cultures represented on campus. As you can imagine, the brothers of Theta showcased the stepping proficiency and kane wizardry that only Nupes can. After the performance, we retreated to a local establishment, the Hop Haus, to fellowship.
Thanks to all of the brothers that came out to support the undergraduates and to fellowship. Special thanks to Stephen Bournes and Jonathan Milam for the invitation to visit.
I hope and trust that this email finds you well. As I have had a few weeks to adjust to my new role, there are a few items that I wanted to share with you as we prepare for the upcoming fraternal year.
Let me now take this opportunity to congratulate the chapters and members of the North Central Province who were recognized during the 80th Grand Chapter meeting. First, please join me in congratulating the chapters that won Reclamation Awards during the Conclave:
