Brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi –
I hope you are doing well and enjoying all the changes that October has to offer! I am writing to share with you an exciting update on one of the National Council’s priorities this quarter.
Following the 2023 National Convention, we left with a vacancy on the Board of Trustees. In alignment with our National Constitution (2.109), the National Council announced a call for applications on August 11th, which resulted in a strong response that reflects our Brotherhood’s unwavering dedication to service and leadership. Due to the high number and quality of applications, we extended the process by two weeks to facilitate a comprehensive review, in-depth interviews, and careful deliberations.
Throughout the selection process, our focus was on identifying the most suitable candidate to further the Board’s objectives while ensuring fairness and efficiency. We extend our sincere gratitude to all Brothers who dedicated their time and effort to apply for the Trustee position. We look forward to engaging these individuals in meaningful ways throughout the biennium.
On behalf of the National Council, I am honored and excited to share that Brother Franklin “Frankie” Johnson-Norwood, a Life Member of the Zeta Psi Chapter at Virginia State University, has been appointed to the Board of Trustees. We congratulate him wholeheartedly on this remarkable achievement and look forward to his service and leadership as a Trustee.
We invite all Brothers to join us for Frankie’s virtual swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday, October 25th, at 6:30 PM CT, live-streamed on our National Facebook page. In the meantime, you can learn more about Frankie here: https://www.kkpsi.org/board-of-trustees/.
Once again, I want to express my most sincere gratitude to all who participated and contributed to this selection process. I am grateful for this Fraternity and look forward to the journey ahead with you all. Let’s continue to strive together for college and university bands!
Much Love and AEA.
