The Lawrenceville-Duluth (GA) Alumni Chapter (LDAC) was chartered on March 7, 2008. The 
chapter's focal point was to embody the interests of the fraternity for the northeast metro portion of the greater Atlanta area. The chapter came into reality due to the visualization of forty four ingenious brothers. These forty four brothers were: 

Gary Bailey  Heven Ford, Jr.  Curtis LeBlanc Dolon Silimon
Charles Barker, Sr.  Andrew Foster  Bob Livingston  B. Keith Simms
Terrence Caldwell  Bobby Frazier  Arthur C. Lusby  Odell Taylor, Jr.
Malvin Carr  Kenneth Haynes Stewart McCall  Charles Thomas
Phil Clancy  Benjamin Holmes  Raymond McDougal  Alfred Turner
Kimball Credle Maurice Horsey James McGriff  Leonardo Tyler
Adrian Douglass, M.D.
 Kahlil Jackson Greg Moultrie   Darryl Walker
Kim Dula
 Derrick Jenkins   Louis Negron   David Wheeler
 Lyndon Earley  C. Douglas Johnson  Gabriel Parks Barian Williams
 Willie Eaton, Jr.  Rodriquez Johnson  Ricardo Quinn  Desota Wilson
 Dwight Flowers  Steven Jones  Clayton Seals Tim Wright


With the fast rising growth and development in the northeast metro portion of Atlanta, their also came the need for the presence of men of Kappa Alpha Psi. Kimball Credle recognized this fact and began contacting members throughout the greater Gwinnett area during the summer of 2007. Bob Livingston made arrangements for the initial meetings to be held at Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Lilburn, GA. As Credle kept communication with National and Provincial officers, the members created the chapter name, acting officers, and chapter by-laws (G. Parks, L. Tyler, C. LeBlanc, A. Foster and A. Douglass). C. Douglas Johnson gathered the needed documents and created the petition needed for the formation of the chapter. During this period, the brothers were visited by Jwyanza Nuriddin (Southeastern Province Reclamation/Expansion Chair), G. Paras Griffin (Southeastern Province Keeper of Records), Reginald Baldwin (National Reclamation Committee Co-Chair), Michael Dubose (Decatur (GA) Alumni Chapter) and Thomas Battles (Grand Board of Directors). Subsequently, the Grand Chapter voted in the affirmative on January 31, 2008, to approve the Lawrenceville-Duluth (GA) Alumni Chapter.

Partnership with the A. Worley Brown Boys & Girls Club and Community Center of Gwinnett 

On March 171\ 2008, the Lawrenceville-Duluth (GA) Alumni Chapter began its partnership with the A. Worley Brown Boys & Girls Club and Community Center of Gwinnett to provide mentoring support to young men in a program called 'Pathway to Manhood'. Several brothers met with over 20 young men from the ages of 12 - 17 in a discussion on various topics including the importance of education, presenting a proper image, taking personal responsibility and making good choices. The young men were very engaging and responded well to their first meeting with the brothers asking many questions. Special recognition must be given to Brother Phil Clancy who has worked diligently to develop this partnership with the Boys & Girls Club and also procured a large donation of school supplies from Staples to donate to the organization. The chapter will meet monthly with these young men and continue to work towards having a positive impact on the Gwinnett County community. Participating brothers were Phil Clancy, Adrian Douglass, Benjamin Holmes, Curtis LeBlanc, Kenneth Haynes, Will Eaton, Jr., David Wheeler and Stewart McCall.
