It is with great happiness that we inform you that Alpha Phi Alpha brother Alton Peques has been crowned the 2018 Mr. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Alton is Fall 2016 initiate of the Mu Zeta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., and currently majoring in Advertising with a minor in Entrepreneurship. An extremely involved student, Alton served as the President of the National Pan-Hellenic Council at UNC and Chief Justice of the UNC Student Body Supreme Court.
His service project focuses on cultivating creativity in local youth by connecting them with resources in music, dance, theater, technology, poetry and more from the UNC community.
“Ultimately, I hope to empower local youth and expose them to different ways they can be creative,” Peques said.
This year marks the second year in a row where Black students have won the Mr. and Miss UNC title. According an article in The Daily Tar Heel, Peques believes that while representation at UNC should still improve this shows the amount of work Black students do for the University.
