Getting Ready for Achievement Week 2008

By Bro. Patrick Johnson

Please join “The Super Chapter” for its 35th Achievement Week Program on Saturday, November 15, 2008. The program will be held at the Drew-Freeman Middle School (2600 Brooks Drive) in Suitland, MD at 1:00 pm. The theme for this occasion is “Three Looks, One Focus: Family/Fraternity/Friendship.” This program recognizes the achievements of citizens, educators, religious leaders, students, and our fraternity brothers within our community. This year’s speaker will be Gamma Pi’s own, Bro. Dr. Mickey L. Burnim, President of Bowie State University.

Also, please join Gamma Pi at the Achievement Week Brothers-only dinner, held on Wednesday, November 12th at Andrews Air Force Base Clubhouse.

Originally designed to promote the study of Negro life and history, today Achievement Week is used to seek out and give due recognition to those individuals at the local and national level who have made a noteworthy contribution toward improving the quality of life for Black Americans. Below is a video clip from last year's Achievement Week with Brother Ernest Green of the historic Little Rock Nine.
