It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Kappa Alpha Psi’s George Rodriguez (Kappa Rho, Spr. 1980).
If you were a member of Kappa Alpha Psi in New York and had ever stepped foot into the Kappa House in Harlem, there is a good chance that you met this brother. Bro Rodriguez was known for his volunteer work with youth at PS 94 Kings College School in the Bronx, where he taught and organized youth step classes and step competitions for over a decade.
“Over the years, we all have seen the smiles on the faces of these students and their proud parents as they witnessed the fruits of George’s volunteerism,” the NYA Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi wrote on a GoFundMe page for Rodriguez. “George introduced the leadership training doctrines of our Fraternity’s Guide Right Program to these students who he referred to as his “kids” and we believe that George’s dedication to their lives will cause a ripple effect that will pay dividends forward for generations to come.”
Bro. Rodriguez crossed into Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity at S.U.N.Y. Albany in the spring of 1980 along with his 15 “line brothers” together known as “The Supreme Sixteen.” “As the youngest on his pledge line, George was bold, eager and out-spoken” the GoFundMe states. “His dedicated service helped to build the foundation of the Kappa Rho Chapter (KP) which was focused on brotherhood, academic achievement, community service and campus leadership.”
We ask that you keep Bro. Rodriguez’s family, friends and fraternity brothers in your thoughts. We also ask that you leave your condolences and memories of him in the comment section below so that his family can see how much he meant to all of us.
