Charlotte, N.C. / April 14, 2021 - The Alpha Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. is taking top honors among the fraternity’s undergraduate chapters. It was just named small Undergraduate Chapter of the Year in the Middle Eastern Province. In 94 years of existence, this is the first time the chapter has received this award.

“This is a big deal for the undergraduates on campus, to represent the University and past membership in this capacity,” said Terry McPherson ‘83, Alpha Epsilon chapter advisor.

Chapter President, Tymier Farrar ’21 echoed McPherson’s sentiments, adding, “For me this is a big accomplishment. To be able to lead my brothers through this pandemic, through all the adversity that we've gone through, and receive Chapter of the Year, that’s major for me.”

Farrar was also awarded the Alfred L. White Scholarship, given to members who have been an act of service to their chapter and community. Farrar said despite the pandemic, his chapter strived to help others. They participated in the University’s Bull Rush the Polls initiative during the 2020 election, fed the homeless and even helped with virtual recruitment efforts by sharing their experience of attending an HBCU with high schoolers.

“I appreciate the University allowing the Divine Nine to really excel during this pandemic and not putting any limits or holds on what can we can do,” Farrar added. In addition, he says the resources provided by Student Affairs have been beneficial to his chapter’s success.

By winning this award the chapter now has an opportunity to apply for Undergraduate Chapter of the Year through the national organization of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
