Polemarch Welcome

​Greetings Brothers and guest of the Durham Community and around the World!
On behalf of the members of the Durham (NC) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., I wish to extend a warm welcome and thank you for visiting our website. My name is Byron Turner, and I am humbled to hold this position as the 40th Polemarch of the Oldest Chapter In The Middle Eastern Province. Since the time of our chartering in 1921, the Durham (NC) Alumni Chapter has strived to be a pillar of our community through its work in the social, political and educational arenas. Members of our chapter continue to make history and strive for excellence in the spirit of ACHIEVEMENT. 

Durham Alumni is proud to be the home chapter of Past Grand Polemarchs - A. Moore Shearin and Hillary H. Holloway, Past Middle Eastern Province (M.E.P.) Polemarchs – Randall M. Rodgers, Jr. and Joseph King Davis, Jr., Past M.E.P. MOIP Director – Wendell Andrews*, and current M.E.P. Keeper of Records - Lascel A. Webley, Jr., and several past M.E.P. Board members. Our members continue to share their time, talents and resources with the Durham community so that we can effectively impact the well-being of our local citizens and provide meaningful service as needed. 

Again, thank you for visiting our website and please visit often to stay abreast of upcoming activities and announcements regarding the Durham (NC) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
