Hello Fellow Hornets,
It’s always a great time to be a Hornet and no time like the present to move the work of the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter forward! It is a distinct privilege of mine to serve as the Chapter President. As I pondered the honor of leading this chapter, a recurring theme came to my mind: Reflection, Connection, and Progression! It is my desire that we will:
Reflect on the original intent of our founding members and on the accomplishments, that have occurred thus far in our LA Chapter.
Connect with alumni and students currently attending ASU from the Far West Region on both personal and professional levels.
Progress forward with networking opportunities, recruitment efforts, and support of Alabama State University
I believe this is an attainable theme with all of us working together. Please peruse our website to learn more about the chapter happenings and visit the membership page if you would like to become a member or to renew your membership.

We will have chapter meetings the 2nd Sunday of each month so mark your calendars!

“Those that say it can’t be done are usually interrupted by others doing it.”- James Baldwin
