ALUMNI | Antoine (Tony) Allen, AS ’93, EP ’01PhD, left, a member of the UD Board of Trustees, receives the Outstanding Achievement Award from Terrance Bowman, EG ’95, at a February reunion celebrating the 20th anniversary of UD’s Nu Xi chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi. The weekend event featured a community service project, semiformal ball, basketball challenge and plenty of nostalgia. Other honorees included Joseph Bryant Jr., AS ’76, Anthony Heyliger, AS ’83, and James Benson, BE ’90, for their efforts to bring the fraternity to UD and obtain a charter for the Nu Xi chapter.
The reunion, with the theme of “Celebrating 20 Years of Service and Achievement,” marked the beginning of a campaign for the newly established Kappa Alpha Psi Endowment fund at the University. In recognition of the chapter’s dedicated service to the community, Newark Mayor Vance Funk declared Jan. 14, the date the chapter was chartered, as “Nu Xi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Day.”
