The Kappa League chapter of Leestown
The Kappa League chapter of Leestown Middle School is a collective group of young men who are molding themselves around the idea of leadership, achievement, and respect. One Kappa League leadership project was to collect canned goods and create Thanksgiving baskets for five Leestown families. The young men of Kappa League accomplished this successfully and with an open heart. Some of the Kappa League students brought in turkeys and others brought canned goods. Donations were also made by the LMS Youth Service Center, the Lexington Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, and the Kappa Alpha Psi Chapter of University of Kentucky.
When Kappa League isn’t thinking about different community service activities, they are learning different skills to prepare themselves for manhood. One skill they learned was how to tie a necktie with members of Kappa Alpha Psi, the big brothers of Kappa League, from the University of Kentucky. Moreover, Kappa League learned how to complete a job application, which is much need for career and job readiness under the direction of Van Berry, FCPS School Resource Officer.
During this semester, the 6th graders of Kappa League had the chance to hear guest speakers such as State Representative George Brown, Assistant Chief Lawrence Weathers and Sergeant Rahsaan Berry of the Lexington Police Department, as well as FCPS staff members. A host of other prominent members of the Lexington community are yet to come to influence these future leaders of our society. They include Roger Cleveland, associate professor of Education at Eastern Kentucky University, and 1st District Councilmember Chris Ford.
Kappa League is led by Administrator Leon Buford-Kelly.
