President's Message - Jan. 2024
Bro. Mikael E. LaRoche
BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2024
Greetings Mu Lambda Chapter Members,
As we step into the month of February, I extend warm greetings to every one of you. I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits.
January tested us with its unpredictable weather, from biting cold to unexpected warmth, and a generous dose of rain and snow. Yet, through these fluctuations, the Mu Lambda Chapter has stood resilient, leaving an indelible mark on our community.
In celebrating the birthday of our revered Brother and Reverend, Dr. Martin L. King Jr., our chapter took part in three impactful events in Washington D.C. Among these, the unified march with the five other Alpha Phi Alpha chapters was a highlight. The snow couldn’t deter us as we led the way with pride. Moreover, our commitment to community service shone through as the Mu Lambda brothers actively engaged with two local schools, contributing to a meaningful day of service during the holiday.
As we embrace Black History Month, I want to commend each one of you for the dedication and impact you’ve brought to our centennial year. Let us carry this momentum forward into February, participating wholeheartedly in the array of activities planned by our brothers at the chapter, district, and region levels.
From the upcoming Mental Health and Wellness virtual program to our future Voteless People is a Hopeless People, voter registration, and education initiatives, there are numerous opportunities for us to make a difference. Remember, we are our Brother’s Keeper. Extend a warm welcome to new members entering our space and reconnect with those you haven’t seen in a while. Reach out through texts, calls, or visits, fostering the strength of our brotherhood and leadership.
I am proud to serve as your president and look forward to continuing this journey alongside every one of you. Let us make Black History Month 2024 a time of unity, growth, and impactful service. Together, we stand strong, inspired by the legacy of those who came before us.
Happy Black History Month, Mu Lambda Chapter!
Brother Mikael E. LaRoche,

About Mu Lambda

The chapter was established, in part, in response to the desire of graduate brothers, many of whom were initiated into Beta Chapter at Howard University, to give aid to the undergraduate brothers and continue the work of Alpha. Chartered by 22 distingushed men of Alpha which included Jewel Nathaniel Allison Murray and Jewel Robert Harold Ogle.
