Welcome to the 677th House of Alpha

Greetings,

I would like to thank the brothers of the Sigma Alpha Lambda Chapter for the opportunity to serve as your President for the 2020-2021 fraternal year. I am deeply humbled by your support and encouragement. I hope that we continue to grow as brothers and support our community in aiding downtrodden humanity in its efforts to achieve higher social, economic, and intellectual status.

Since July 24, 2010, our Chapter has worked diligently in providing services and advocacy to the communities of Southern Maryland. We are distinct in our efforts in delivering mentorship to young men through our Go-to-High-School Go-to-College program and educating the public about the importance of voter registration and political engagement through the A Voteless People is a Hopeless People program. By executing these programs, we are developing future leaders in our communities. We will continue to support our other community service projects such as Project Alpha, Brothers Keepers, Adopt-a-Highway, March of Dimes, and Thanksgiving Food Basket Giveaways.

The year 2020 continues to be a challenge for many as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic and frustrations stemming from decades of police brutality and social injustices. There is much work to be done during these socially hard times. We have an opportunity to influence and educate our community in an incredibly positive way. We must continue to move “forward ever, backward never.” First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All remains our motto and sets our footsteps to make social changes.

If you are an Alpha Brother looking for a chapter home or looking to visit, we meet on the second Thursday of the month. For more information regarding our community service initiatives or general Chapter updates, please visit our website at www.SAL1906.org.

Bro. Rodney L. White,
