It has been an honor and a privilege to have carried this shield of Iota Phi Theta for nearly 4 years. Throughout my life, I have heard so much respect and disrespect when it came to my fraternity, and I constantly struggled with the personal evolution that was required to be a strong man for my organization An Iota Man NEVER stops growing, and our fraternity will continue to grow. I stand this day as an Iota, thanks to the 12 men, who decided, on the steps of Hurt Gymnasium at Morgan State, that Scholarship, Leadership, Citizenship, Fidelity, and Brotherhood were 5 principles to uphold and cherish…that traditions needed to be built…that work needed to be done. It is because of these principles that I pledged. It is because of its uniqueness that I stand as an Iota man.
I do thank my 12 founders, who have paved the way for many Iota men to walk
Mad respect to the fools I had as prophytes.
Much love to 5 individuals I can call my brothers.
And a huge thanks to the two who continue the legacy at the University of Mississippi.
And last but not least, a humble thank you to all those who supported Iota Phi Theta. As our fraternity continues to grow, I pledge to myself to continue to grow as a man of God. Through him, I can improve in all aspects of my life.
49 years, we build traditions
49 years, we will never rest
49 years and counting
May God Bless
Happy Founders Day to Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc.
