KapEx 2022-23 Year in Review

The first year of the Kapex Foundation was a massive success. Here is the timeline for the

Foundation’s achievements during the last year


BETA CHI 75TH CHAPTER ANNIVERSARY

The Kapex Foundation was the driving force for the 75th Anniversary celebration of the Beta Chi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.

Foundation members led the planning of the weekend which was executed perfectly. Celebration of Brother Joe Debose a 1949 initiate of the chapter who at 93 years old came to the celebration and was the guest of honor. Brother Debose felt the love and he and his

daughter were infusive in praise of his treatment. Brother Debose received a lifetime

achievement award from the chapter.

The Foundation facilitated 50 boys and girls from the club receiving backpacks filled with school supplies to enhance their scholastic endeavors.
