Gamma Gamma Lambda Delegates
at the 87th National Convention

Orlando, FL- Alpha Brothers from far and wide gathered at the luxurious Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, FL for the 87th General Convention and 101st Anniversary Convention.

The Brothers of Gamma Gamma Lambda attended this important legislative convention with five Brothers in attendance, of which four Brothers were serving as chapter delegates.

GGL Brothers weighed in on several important fraternal policy issues, constitutional realignment, and regulatory process revisions.There were some notable performances by South Carolina Chapters including very commentable showing in the Martin Luther King Oratorial Contest by Bro. Lashondo Burnside of the Eta Iota, Voorhees College and a National title win by Pi Alpha Chapter of Clemson University in the National Scholars Bowl Competition.

Of paramount importance however, was the delegate vote for the 33rd General President. With full support of the four Gamma Gamma Lambda delegates, Brother Herman “Skip” Mason, whose campaign is chaired by our own Bro. Don Weston, beat out five other worthy competitors to become one of the two finalists for election as the 33rd General President. Bro. Skip Mason and Bro. Darryl A. Peal are the final two candidates for 33rd General President of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
