Founders Day celebration at the Rudolph Jones Student Center on the campus of Fayetteville State University. The celebration included dinner, history of the fraternity and chapter, tribute to the Founding Jewels, and special awards and recognitions.

This Founders Day gives brothers the “opportunity to reflect on what it truly means to be an Alpha man and the epitome of being First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All,” said Bro. Paul Salmon, president Epsilon Rho Lambda chapter. Salmon challenged brothers to remain a “constant voice, mentor, and advocate for those who need uplifting or can’t speak for themselves.”

In keeping with this year’s theme “113 years of Leadership, Service, and Commitment,” the brotherhood recognized two of its own for their outstanding contributions to EPL and the fraternity throughout the year.

Bro. Paul Brown, past EPL president, received the Joseph W. Summers Alpha Man of the Year award. “I am humbled and honored to receive this award,” said Brown. “I can’t think of a higher honor than to be recognized by your peers.”

Bro. Phyl Charity, vice president, received the Brig. Gen. Roscoe C. Cartwright Military Brother of the Year award. Brother Charity retired from the U.S. Army after serving 33 years in uniform.


“Our chapter is filled with a legacy of monumental leaders of our Armed Forces," said Charity. It was an honor to be chosen ERL 2019 Military Brother of the Year and doubly moved to share the moment in front of my chapter brothers and wife (Maria) of 25 years."


During the ceremony, brothers acknowledged 2020 graduates from Epsilon Zeta Chapter, Fayetteville State University; Phi Gamma Chapter, Methodist University; and Tau Nu Chapter, University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Graduates received a gift in recognition of their accomplishments.
