2013 Kappa Beautillion to Culminate with the Presentation of 19 Young Men
College-bound high school juniors and seniors will receive scholarships and perform a waltz at a black-tie event hosted by the Burlington Camden Achievement Foundation.
The beautillion is the culmination of a four-month program designed to prepare high school students for college and subsequent life. As part of the beautillion program, the young men ("beaux") participated in a series of workshops on important topics, including financial aid, fiscal responsibility, etiquette and public speaking. Notably, they were paired with members of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. who helped to guide them through the process of preparing for and applying to college. To round out the program, the beaux also took part in various social and cultural events.
The young men have been recognized by several government officials for their successful completion of the beautillion program, including U.S. Congressman Robert E. Andrews, First Congressional District of New Jersey; the Honorable Dana L. Redd, Mayor of Camden; and the Honorable Blondell Reynolds Brown, Philadelphia Councilwoman At-Large and Majority Whip.
Lloyd Freeman, Esq., beautillion chairman, commented, “Each year, I am increasingly impressed with the caliber of our beaux. After interacting with them for the past four months, I am confident that these extraordinary gentlemen will have very bright futures.”
