President's Message - July 2024

Bro. Mikael E. LaRoche

My Brothers, Family and Wellwishers, 


I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and belief in me as I have served as Mu Lambda’s president during the Centennial Year of the chapter’s charter. It has been a profound honor to lead this distinguished chapter, and I am deeply humbled by your trust in me.


Standing in the shadows of our illustrious charter member, such as Brother Harold Statton, our first president who served from 1923 to 1924, has been inspiring and motivating. Brother Statton, who earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Howard University and served as Vice President of the Howard University Alumni Association, set a high standard for leadership and dedication. Similarly, Brother Howard H. Long, who served as the Fraternity’s General Secretary from 1915 to 1916, and esteemed Eastern Regional Vice Presidents like Brother Walter M. Booker and Brother LeRoy Lowery III, have left indelible marks on our chapter and fraternity.


As I reflect on the end of my first term, I am filled with a sense of gratitude and accomplishment. The journey has been filled with numerous challenges, but it has also been a period of immense growth and learning. I have gained invaluable insights from each of you, and the camaraderie and brotherhood we share have strengthened my resolve to serve with excellence.


I am particularly thankful for the opportunity to develop as a leader, a journey that has taught me more about myself than I could have ever imagined. Your support has been instrumental in this personal and professional growth, and I am committed to continuing to uphold the legacies of the great men who have led before me.


Looking ahead, I am excited about the year to come. It is another opportunity to learn, to serve proudly, and to lead courageously. Together, we will continue to build on the strong foundation laid by our predecessors and work towards a future filled with promise and achievement.


Thank you once again for your trust and support. Let us continue to uphold the high standards of Alpha Phi Alpha and strive for excellence in all our endeavors.





Brother Mikael E. LaRoche,
