Polemarch's Message

Greetings,

 

I am truly humbled to serve as the 26th Polemarch of the Maywood-Wheaton (IL) Alumni Chapter  (MWAC) of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated. On behalf of the entire chapter we welcome you to the MWAC website.  As the  first Greek-lettered organization in the Pan-Hellenic council to be chartered in the western suburbs of the Chicagoland area,  I look forward to carrying on the standard of achievement that has been fostered by the past administrations over the last 46 years. It is my goal

to serve the membership and our community with unwavering support and compassion.  The needs of the community have become more complex and dynamic to address due to the crippling effects of COVID-19, as well as the civil unrest caused by social injustice issues that have strained communities and community resources.  The 26th administration accepts the charge of navigating through these unprecedented times with optimism and purpose.  

MWAC’s  continued support to our communities include holiday food drives, COVID-19 relief efforts, donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Adopt-A-highway clean up, donations to youth programs in faith based organizations, financial support for undergraduate members of our fraternity, over $150,000 to date in scholarships to local high school seniors through the Diamond Youth Foundation, and much more.

To our chapter members, we hope you utilize the “Brothers Only” section of this website to engage with one another, stay up to date on the business of the chapter, and support upcoming events and initiatives.

To our visitors, this website is intended to be a guide for points of contact and to share our chapter’s award-winning history.  You can also click on the “News and Events” section to locate information on our philanthropic efforts,  upcoming events, and community initiatives.

In closing, we are thankful for the continued relationships with our existing community partners. Furthermore, we look forward to building new partnerships with other community organizations. It is because of you that we are able to achieve in every field of human endeavor. 

Best Regards,

A. Craig Kinard
