Kappa League Meeting October 9, 2010

There will be a regularly scheduled Kappa League meeting on October 9, 2010 to induct new members into the Kappa League and elect officers for the current school year.

Kappa League is open to all high school aged male students who wish to better themselves both academically and socially.

The history of the Kappa League can be traced back to February 12th, 1970.  Mel Davis who was the chairman of the Los Angeles (CA) Alumni Chapter’s Social Action Program, developed a program called the Kappa Instructional Leadership League.  The program was first implemented at Alain LeRoy Locke High School geared towards young men between the 10th and 12th grades.  The goal was to “help the young men to achieve worthy goals for themselves and make constructive contributions to their community when leadership roles become their responsibilities.”  With the success of the program at Alain LeRoy Locke High School, the program serves as the model for programs for other chapters.
