In March of 2008, one of our chapter brothers, Mr. Brandon Charles Fauntleroy-McDowel was violently murdered in downtown Kansas City, Missouri as a result of a carjacking. At the time of his demise, Brother Fauntleroy-McDowel served as the Vice President of the Omicron Xi Lambda Chapter and was only days away from beginning a career at the Wyandotte Outreach Center as a Case Manager in Kansas City, Kansas. Additionally, he was preparing to receive his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Avila University and was looking forward to attending the University of Missouri -Kansas City’s School of Law beginning in the fall of 2008. Brandon was an Alpha brother who devoted his life to service, outreach, and scholarship.
Our chapter has since honored the memory of Bro. Fauntleroy-McDowel’s life and aims through our annual scholarship luncheon held in his name to present deserving high school senior males with scholarships as they plan to pursue a higher education. Our 2017 theme is “Grit…Fostering Passion, Purpose and Perseverance”.
We cordially invite you to join us in our organization’s endeavor to help students pursue higher education through the Brandon C. Fauntleroy-McDowel Scholarship Luncheon.
