Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society
Becoming your new national president of Alpha Kappa Mu National Honor Society is an honor and a privilege. It is my intention to work closely with our Executive Secretary-Treasurer and officers of this prestigious organization to build on our rich heritage and move boldly forward to higher heights.
As we move forward, we hope to revitalize traditional activities while devoting attention to many of the new concepts recommended by the committees at the 63rd National Convention. Our theme for this administration will be “Boldness in Excellence through Academics, Leadership and Service.” Under this theme, we look forward to greater unity among the chapters in carrying out a national Program of Work designed to emphasize our tenets of leadership, scholarship, citizenship, character and service. Chapters will be rewarded for their efforts in operationalizing the plan through a standardized, yet competitive format to culminate at the regional and national conferences.
My vision is to energize our chapters to promote greater participation at all levels. Let us all join together to elevate Alpha Kappa Mu to the place it so richly deserves to be on our campuses and throughout the membership. It is an illustrious organization with benefits that keep on giving long after the undergraduate/graduate years. Let’s give AKM it’s true place of distinction.
