Most Memorable Moment:
All are listed in proper order
MOMENT(s):
- 3/96 (New Voices In Praise Gospel Choir SHUT-IN (rededicated life)
- 2/22/97- Became a member of Alpha Phi Alpha (names: Ned Flanders aka ICEBERG)'06 From this point I realized how much work it takes to be a truly active & committed member of an organization as well as what is needed to be an effective leader.
PERSON/PEOPLE/GROUPS:
New Voices In Praise
This choir was an instrumental tool in developing/protecting my spiritual walk. I learned the relevance of statement "Birds of a feather." When I was with, conversing, socializing with my choir friends I was not even aware of all the other "things" that went on on campus nor did I care.

Black Male Coalition
The BMC allowed me to realize the important role that black men have in today's economic growth as well as providing an avenue for me to network with Men who were doing great things in their respective professions.

Delta Sigma Theta (Beta Chapter)
These ladies were the first on campus to give me guidance in my academic/leadership/social choices. Some of these sista's took me in as a little Brother while others were always available for advice. Vashon, Letha, Emphany, Wilemina, and many others are people I can today still say are a positive reflection/example on how a WOMAN should carry herself. Funny thing is a Delta told me I was Going to be a Good Alpha Man before I even knew what an Alpha Man was.

Alpha Kappa Alpha (Zeta Chapter)
There was initially one individual who I knew that had an awesome SPIRIT and an even more AWESOME personality. She was also one whom later became my "BIG SISTER." Interestingly enough she became a member of AKA. These ladies invited me to participate in various on & off - campus events, provided tutorial assistance, spiritual guidance (who to talk to about issues) and true friendship. This experience and showed me that Wilberforce Greek Organizations are possibly the tightest nit group when I came to Community involvement and University retention. Tiff, Lori, Steph-Diggy, Nikky and a lot more can be said to be the sista’s I can call on when I need a GOOD 2 cents.

WU University Choir
"What happens on tour...stays on tour." A strange statement for a choir that nothing bad or negative ever happen. If you want to work harder than you have ever work for a choir, sing like you have never sung, and learn another level of Discipline. try and join your University Choir. I got to know people who I would normally not socialize with. This choir experience allowed me to broaden my horizons and socialize with everyone - "for EVERYONE has something to offer." EVENT: WUTC - WEST COAST TOUR
