Oct. 23, 2009
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. senior Derrick Christian, from St. Louis, is a journalism major with an emphasis in strategic communication.
As the National Pan-Hellenic Council president, Christian is very involved with the planning of the Black Homecoming.
“We tried to create events that fully integrate the minorities and create something culturally specific,” Christian said.
Being on this year’s Black Homecoming Court is also a highlight for Christian.
“My favorite part of Homecoming is probably the Black Homecoming Ball, because it was reintroduced last year, and since I was a prince last year, it’s neat to be able to be a part of its evolution,” Christian said.
He is the Keeper of Records for Kappa Alpha Psi, assistant editor of the Kappa Alpha Psi, and a member of the Grand Board of Directors for Kappa Alpha Psi.
“I got involved in the groups I’m involved with because I saw something I wanted to be a part of,” Christian said. “Both journalism and my fraternity helped me to achieve that, and I just moved up in the ranks from there.”
After college, Christian would like to work for a multicultural advertising agency, preferably in Chicago.
