Conrad Woody (4-04-A) is constructing a 45-minute program that will incorporate song, reflection, and acknowledgments in celebration of the restored oldest edifice among all Black Greek-letter organizations on any campus. 

Dr. Wayne Frederick, Howard University President, our Grand Basileus, Bro. Antonio Knox, Sr., Supreme Council members, Howard University officials, and other dignitaries will be in attendance.  Additionally, JoAnn Clay, daughter of the Dial conceiver, Bro. Leroy Clay (Alpha 1929), will attend as an honored guest.
