From the District Director
“GOODWILL is the monarch of this House. Men, unacquainted, enter, shake hands, exchange greetings, and depart friends.”
Welcome to the House of Alpha!
As the District Director of South Carolina, I extend to you a warm welcome to our House. Known to many as “The Cornerstone of Alpha South,” our district is a unique one because we have brothers from every profession and walk in life, who bring their talents, skills and expertise to the table daily to help move our great fraternity, “onward and upward.”
The South Carolina District, which reaches from the Low Country to Upstate; from the Midland to Pee Dee, is comprised of approximately 700 brothers actively participating in one of the 17 alumni chapters or 15 college chapters. Having such a wide cadre of brothers, it is no wonder why our brotherhood is strong and robust.
As you peruse our website, you will see that we are carrying out the mandates and ideals of the seven founders of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., affectionately known by us as “The 7 Jewels.” Whether it’s participating in signature projects and/or special initiatives like “A Voteless People, Is a Hopeless People,” March of Dimes/March for Babies, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Project Alpha, Brother’s Keeper, or the Leadership Development Citizenship Education Initiative, the South Carolina District is on the front line helping to lead these efforts.
The brothers of South Carolina realize that if we are to remain relevant and viable, we must look for #anew and innovative way to develop leaders, promote brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities. If we do that, we can stand boldly and know we are truly “First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All.”
Best Wishes and Warmest Regards,
Brother Don R. Weston
South Carolina District Director
From The Assistant District Director
Brothers and Visitors,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome to you the SCALPHA website. I am honored to be serving as the Assistant District Director for the 2017-2018 fraternal year. This fraternal year I have four principals, four ideals that I believe if we concentrate our efforts on will make us a better district: Brotherhood, Leadership, Scholarship, and Service.
First we are a brotherhood. Before we can serve our communities we must continue to strive to do better in fostering brotherhood between the brothers of our district, region, and the general organization. Leadership because we are first of all. As men of Alpha we are expected to be the first to respond when our communities call for help. Scholarship because we are college educated scholarly men and must continue to brand our fraternity as such. And finally Service. We are first of all, servants of all, and consequently we shall transcend all in service to communities throughout our state, region, and nation.
Once again I am honored to serve as your Assistant District Director and I am looking forward to working with you this fraternal year.
Brother Johnathan Greene, Jr.
South Carolina Assistant District Director
