Brothers of the Middle Western Province:

Greetings on behalf of the Middle Western Province Leadership Team. I hope you had a wonderful, productive summer. God is Good.

Thank you for your overwhelming support during the 81st Grand Chapter meeting in Houston. The leadership from the Chapters was tremendous and our Junior Vice Polemarch, Brother DeJuan Naff stood tall among the other Junior Vice Polemarchs. Brother Naff served on several committees during the Grand Chapter meeting and it is clear that he is poised to lead our undergraduate Brothers during the 2013/2014 year.

Under the leadership of our 32nd Grand Polemarch William Randy Bates, Esq., let’s continue to live the tenants of our great fraternity and continue to build Kappa. The 32nd administration is about substance and results. The fraternity has conducted over 4000 Health Screenings with Healthy Kappas, Healthy Communities; $8.8 million in scholarships were awarded to our youth in Guide Right programs; 25% increase in new or re-established Guide Right programs; 119 Kappa Kampers at Paul Quinn College; 68% increase in youth served through Guide Right; 98.9% Graduation Rate among Kappa Leaguers; launched the inaugural LEAD Kappa Training Program with 26 undergraduate Brothers; and doubled participation in the Undergraduate Leadership Institute to 100. Brothers across Kappa Land are working extremely hard to accomplish all of this. Let’s continue to lead our communities and stay focused on our young men.

• MOIP Paperwork Due – September 6, 2013

Brothers, please send in your calendar of events to our Senior Vice Polemarch, Brother Damon Barry via email at We need to be supportive of every chapter and a calendar of events will allow for proper planning.

The MWP is one of the most effective and efficient Provinces in the fraternity and the Brotherhood we exude to each other is a shining example for others to follow. The Brotherhood should trump all else.

We will rise up together my Brothers. Thank you again for answering the call to service.

Yours in the Bond,

Clifford Franklin
