Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., is all about achievement and Tuesday morning they put their money where their mouth is and donated more than $60,000 in the form of computer labs to New Orleans area schools.
The fraternity said that it wanted to leave a powerful impression on New Orleans for its 82nd Grand Chapter Meeting and this was definitely a perfect way to start off their week long convention. The three schools who received the donations were St. Augustine High School, which hosted the event, Edna Karr High School and Morris F.X. Jeff Community School.
“We just don’t want to do this in New Orleans, (Kappas) want to do this wherever we go,” William “Randy” Bates Jr., the fraternity’s Grand Polemarch told WDSU a local news station about the donation which was intended to specifically encourage students to engage in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (also known a STEM).
While this is a big donation to the city, it is not the only thing that the fraternity has planned for this week. The city is planning to light up The Mercedes-Benz Superdome crimson and cream in honor of the Nupes.
