Albany State University Professor Elected
National President of Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society
Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society recently announced the election of Mr. Brandon G. Henry as its twenty-fourth national president. The appointment was made at the Society’s 67th National Convention, which was hosted by the Alpha Iota (Albany State University) Chapter, in Albany, Georgia.
Henry, an Assistant Professor of Biology in the Department of Natural Sciences at Albany State, has strong ties to the honor society, which was founded in 1937 and celebrates the academic achievements of juniors, seniors, and graduate students in all disciplines. It was the first honor society at an Historically Black College and University (HBCU) to be admitted to the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS).
As an ASU undergraduate, Henry was inducted into Alpha Kappa Mu in 2001. Also, as an ASU alumnus and faculty member, he served as director of Region V-A (Georgia), co-chair of the scholarship committee, and co-advisor of the AKMu Alpha Iota Chapter. Henry’s dedication and leadership within the Society at-large contributed to his unanimous selection as president.
At Albany State University, Professor Henry also serves as Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the Natural Sciences department, senior faculty fellow, STEM mentor, faculty senator, and University College teaching fellow. Additionally, he is the site coordinator for the ASU-Meharry Medical College BS to MD Program and advisor of Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA). In these capacities, Henry works with faculty to develop initiatives and provide mentoring opportunities (for students and faculty) that foster student success. His other memberships include Beta Kappa Chi National Scientific Honor Society and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Professor Henry’s term as Alpha Kappa Mu president will begin on August 1, 2023. Of his appointment, Henry quipped, “The writing was on the wall…. I could see this coming.”
Dr. Francis Dorsey
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dr. Francis Dorsey, a beloved national president (2012-2016), longtime advisor at Kent State, regional director, and lifetime member of Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society. He was an inspiration to all who knew him or just had the privilege of sharing space with him on this earth. He embodied to the fullest Alpha Kappa Mu's five principles (character, scholarship, citizenship, service, and leadership) and encouraged others to do the same.
Our sincerest condolences and prayers are extended to his family and friends. Dr. Francis Dorsey will be truly missed.
