25 Alpha Rho Chapter Alumni Brothers Raise $25,000 To Help Restore MLK Chapel At Morehouse College -
Once again, Alpha Rho answers the call and leads the way! Twenty-five alums of Morehouse College's Alpha Rho Chapter came together to donate twenty-five thousand dollars to the college in celebration and recognition of the 20th Anniversary of their initiation into Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. through the Alpha Rho chapter seated at Morehouse.
This group of alumni who are referred to as the “Intrepid 25" reside all over the country and excel in various professions with the unifying factors for this group of men being Morehouse College and their beloved fraternity.
The Intrepid's $25,000 donation was made in the name of the "Chairishing Campaign" designed to help renovate the historic Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. In honor of their donation, there will be 25 individually engraved seats inside the chapel featuring the names of all 25 donors.
“In maintaining the high ideals of our fraternity and alma mater, the objective was to collectively give back to Morehouse College, the institution that introduced us and forever bonded us. It is our hope that our line initiative will spark a desire for other groups across all fraternities to give back collectively,” said Ahuacan D. DeGruy -- a member of the Morehouse class of 2000 who served as Chairman of this campaign.
