New Orleans Alphas award $6k in scholarships

We know in many ways education is the key to success. On June 24, 2017, The Sigma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. pushed one of our aims, “scholarship”, in true Alpha fashion awarding $6,000 to three outstanding young men in the Greater New Orleans area.

Seantrell Lemar –“Dr. Norman C Francis Outstanding Scholar”- $3000 graduated from St. James High School with an Associated Degree, 4.0 GPA, 29 ACT score, currently attending Dillard University and will continue at Dillard in the fall.

Joshua Williams- “Dr. Emmett W Bashful Outstanding Scholar” (given in memory of Trayvon Martin)- $2000 graduated from Chalmette High School GPA 3.55, ACT 21 will be attending Xavier University in the fall.

Jacob Detiege– “ Dr. Rudolph J Detiege Outstanding Scholar” (given in memory of Alton Sterling)- $1000 graduated from Brother Martin High School. GPA 3.7, ACT score 32 will be attending Milsaps College.

The scholarships were given out at our 2017 Scholarship Breakfast held at Dillard University’s Student Center hosted by Sigma Lambda’s Education Committee.

Proceeds from the event went toward our general scholarship fund. Over the last 20 years, we have awarded over $25,000 in scholarships.
