The Richardson/Plano Alumni Chapter continued the fraternal year with a host of activities this fall. The chapter had Brothers Kiel Metoyer, Kerry Bates, Bennie Harrison & Alonza Brown participate in the Chi Zeta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha 5K Run to End Poverty. Brothers Metoyer & Bates finished first in their respective age divisions and Brother Harrison finished second in his division.
The chapter also sponsored a Thanksgiving Bowl-a-thon on November 16th at Strikz in Frisco, Texas which benefitted the annual Thanksgiving Basket Food Drive; 59 baskets were distributed to needy families through the Shiloh Baptist Church in Plano, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Plano Independent School District (PISD). Brother Jerrell Gibson was chairman for both events.
The Guide Right and Kappa League programs have been working in collaboration with the “Man Up” program sponsored by the PISD. The Kappa Leaguers where taken on a college tour and football game at Langston University, in Oklahoma where they were joined by fellow Kappa Leaguers and brothers from Wichita, KS and Oklahoma City, OK.
