Leadership Driven by Action, Not Position

Since my initiation into Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. in the spring of 2006, I have worked with fidelity to promote the fraternity’s national programs, initiatives, and objectives on local, district, regional, and national fronts.

" Leaders put their people into a position to do great things without them. The legacy of successful leaders lives on through the people they touch along the way."

— John Maxwell
