1st Quarter Academic Excellence 
Congratulations to our first quarter A/B Honor Roll Mobile Kappa Leaguers.  
Mobile Kappa Leaguers Support Literacy
According to Room to Read, literacy is the foundation for all future learning, yet a quality education remains out of reach for millions of children worldwide. Over the years, access to primary schooling has improved, but educational quality remains a significant issue. Many children in primary school aren't learning the basics due to inadequate teachers, funds, and school infrastructure challenges. The Mobile Kappa Leaguers collaborated with The Ali Foundation to produce YouTube videos of Kappa Leaguers reading children's books. More than 15 Kappa Leaguers participated in this endeavor.

The mission of the Ali Foundation is to promote education and cultural diversity across social and economic divides through community outreach and service. The Ali Foundation officers are Mr. Ronald Ali, President, and Mrs. Renea Ali, Vice-President.

National Voter Registration Campaign 
According to the National Guide Right Chairman of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Kevin Burnette, “Social Action/Community Service is a Core Focus Initiative of National Guide Right. We had 2571 people sign our virtual petition. Our students got engaged in this election.” National Guide Right combined the Kappa Voting Initiative, “Kappa League TV teams up with Social Cinema,” and National Voter Registration Day into #KLgetoutandvote.

“I applaud all 53 Chapters that participated; your effort was OUTSTANDING.”

Below you will find the top 5 chapters that had the most people to sign the virtual petition. Mobile Kappa League President William Coleman said, “It was not until the last week of this initiative that the chapter decided to participate fully. We only had five people who had signed the petition going into the last week of the election.” Kappa Leaguer Grant Martin, who serves as the Public Relations Director for the Mobile Kappa League, said, “As a chapter, we realized how important this election was, and we wanted to do our part to encourage everyone to get to the polls.”

Mobile Kappa Leaguers and
Wilmer Hall Collaborate
On Saturday, November 21, 2020, the Eta Nu Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., (University of South Alabama), and the Mobile Kappa League, collaborated for a service at Wilmer Hall. Chores completed were painting of benches, tables, a swing set, removal of wild vines around the basketball court, and the cleaning of several storage spaces.

Wilmer Hall originated in 1864 and was started by Bishop Richard H. Wilmer, the second bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama. Wilmer saw the plight of Civil War orphans and planned a children’s home for them in Mobile, Alabama.

Wilmer Hall now serves children and young adults through several programs that provide tutoring, on-campus living, and other tools needed to succeed. Wilmer Hall currently has five programs: The Residential Program, The Transitional Living Program, the Transitional Family Program, the on-campus after-school education program (called Education4Life), and the Community-Based Education Program. The Community-Based Education program consists of the Phillip A. Stirling Hamilton Education Center and the Max Miller Education Program.
