To my Brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and Guests:

Welcome to the website of the Winter Park (FL) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

As the 15th Polemarch of the chapter, I hope that you will take the time to peruse this website to learn about our rich history, robust program of community activities, and future plans to provide even greater service the Central Florida community.

Since its chartering in 1992 as a member of Kappa Alpha Psi’s Southern Province, Winter Park Alumni has demonstrated its staunch commitment to making a positive difference in Winter Park through voluntary services for children, families and charitable organizations. You will see many examples throughout the website, particularly in photos and news and event recaps. Because of the principles of Kappa Alpha Psi, it is our duty to strive to be a pillar of the communities we serve. In working toward that end, Winter Park Alumni is guided by the fraternity’s goal: ACHIEVEMENT.

Founded in 1911 and adopting the motto “Achievement In Every Field of Human Endeavor,” Kappa Alpha Psi, through the vision of its 10 founders, has given us a roadmap for success. That roadmap is executed on a broader level by the fraternity’s International Headquarters, and, in turn, Winter Park Alumni aligns its primary objectives to those of IHQ. This strategy ensures that Kappa’s overarching goals are well known to all and communicates to Central Florida how Winter Park Alumni can be available as a partner, sponsor or servant to help meet pressing public needs. As Polemarch, I will continue a tradition of excellence in this regard. During the next year, the chapter’s public service emphasis will be on the following:
Guide Right and its Kappa League Program
Providing $10,000 annually in need-based college scholarships in cooperation with the Winter Park Kappa Foundation (http://www.wpkfoundation.org/)
Community service projects to benefit at-risk youth and disadvantaged families in Central Florida
Winter Park Alumni has an ambitious agenda planned for 2015-16, and as men of vision, talent, and commitment, the brothers are well prepared for the challenges – and rewards. With the theme “Continuing Success Through Achievement – A Commitment to Excellence In Our Community,” the 15th administration of the Winter Park Alumni Chapter is poised to lead the chapter into a new era of service and dedication to meeting community needs.

I hope that this website will be a resource for brothers and the community at-large to learn more about our chapter. And, after checking us out, please join us in making a difference.

Respectfully,

Erick Wicker
