Brother Elbert Brooks, a 1966 initiate of the Gamma Eta Chapter, has been elected to the Board Directors of the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation.

Brother Brooks, a 2006 recipient of the Western Province’s Randall C. Bacon Alumni Achievement Award, has served as the originator of the Nordstrom Scholarship Program, which maintains scholarship programs in every Province of Kappa Alpha Psi. In his work with Nordstrom, Brother Brooks has been responsible for nearly one million dollars in base and matching fund scholarship dollars.

In 2005, Brother Brooks was chosen by the Western Province to serve as the Western Province's Northwest Cluster Coordinator for Operation Pi, the Kappa Alpha Psi’s Hurricane Katrina Relief project. Through Brother Books’ efforts, the Western Province raised nearly $15,000.00 to support Kappa hurricane victims and their families.

Brother Brooks, a life member of Kappa Alpha Psi, resides in the Seattle, Washington metropolitan area.
