Kappa Alpha Psi was the vision of 10 great men in the school year 1910 - 11, the night of January 5, 1911, "on the campus of Indiana University at Bloomington, Indiana, to sow the seed of a fraternal tree whose fruit is available to, and now enjoyed by, college men everywhere, regardless of their color, religion or national origin".
I am honored to have had my friends - Lew M and Dr. Jackson for the inspiration to create these amazing carpets. I am privileged to also strive toward a tomorrow of promise, productivity and influence with this heirloom for the men!
