Chapter History

The Mansfield Cedar Hill Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was to evolve shortly following the election of President Barack Obama in 2009. An Obama celebration function was being held at the home of Dr. Charles V. Shelton, Jr. where brothers Toney Johnson, and John Wallace were in attendance. The three brothers envisioned a new Kappa chapter that would inspire and reclaim inactive Kappas in the south Dallas region. A few days later Brother Victor Ponder was asked to share in this vision which he did. There emerged four key chartering members of the MAC Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. The goal intended was to strive for training for leadership and moving Kappa to the next level.

With an eagerness to move swiftly Brothers Toney Johnson and Charles Shelton Jr. attended the annual TNMCK meeting. During a break they arranged a break with the Southwestern Province Polemarch Ron Julun. There Brothers Johnson and Shelton made a request for the potential chapter and expressed positive concerns and goals.

Province Polemarch Julun indicated that he would seek feedback from nearby existing chapters about our concern and investigate the possibility of such a venture. He further indicated that he didn’t want a temporary group of brothers that might not survive and thrive in this venture. On the glorious day of March 7, 2009 Southwestern Province Polemarch Ron Julun granted permission for the chartering of the Mansfield-Cedar Hill Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. The original suggestion was for just the Mansfield Chapter, but due to a significant number of inactive Kappas living in the community of Cedar Hill that community was included in the new purposed chapter. The founders decided to refer to this potential new chapter as “The MAC.” Province Polemarch Julun indicated that the possibility of a chartering would have to occur quickly due to an upcoming Grand Board Meeting scheduled. A required number of at least ten (10) Brothers would have to be charter members, detail paperwork and fees would be required and paid to the Province and Grand Chapter. The four key charter members obtained a total of thirty-three chartered brothers, submitted required paperwork and fees in a timely order. On July 25, 2009 the Mansfield-Cedar Hill Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. received their charter at 4:00 P.M. from Southwestern Province Polemarch Ron Julun.
