Brother Earl Norman Caldwell II Tapped To Lead Alpha Rho's "Sustaining The House" Cent
Brother Earl Caldwell never had the opportunity to attend the dedication ceremony of the 90th Anniversary Memorial Obelisk in 2015 due to the fact he was stationed some 5,676 miles away in Accra, Ghana West Africa. But this longtime chapter alumni leader has every intention of making up for lost time by guiding the Brotherhood in the latest campaign drive to benefit Morehouse College.
A Fall 1982 member of the Infallible 14, Caldwell has been tapped to lead the APCAA's second fundraising campaign for the college. In honor of the chapter's 2024 centennial and in a proactive move to provide sustaining financial support for Morehouse College, the membership of the Alpha Rho Chapter Alumni Association (APCAA) will support the educational endeavors of the student population by contributing $2.5 million to The Alpha Rho Endowed Scholarship Fund.
This alumni appeal – known as The Alpha Rho Sustaining The HOUSE Campaign – launches as the college closes out it’s year-long Sesquicentennial celebration, and begins to align alumni groups for the next 150 years.
With seven (7) fiscal year periods in-between the launch of the appeal and the centennial anniversary of the APCAA in 2024, the association will first match its 2015 year giving level by cultivating gifts from returning donors at the same level, or better. Moving forward, the ask will increase by 13% with every new fiscal year leading up to 2024.
"I'm landing in the campaign chairmanship at just the right time," said Brother Caldwell. "Morehouse is wrapping a milestone anniversary, and Alpha Rho is beginning its march toward our own milestone -- 100 years in 2024. There's no better time to align our unique histories and sustain the future our of beloved chapter seat, Morehouse College."
