The tournament has been named in honor of one of our most esteemed brothers, Leon Walker, a spring 1984 initiate of The Hyattsville / Landover (MD) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. (E). He was a legend and a giant in our Chapter and within our Fraternity. As a member of this Chapter, he was instrumental in establishing a 501(c) (3) foundation. As one of his most notable fundraising ventures, Brother Walker created and implemented our Chapter’s golf tournament in the late 1980s to raise funds and support the organization’s many ventures. This is the very reason why we felt it imperative to resurrect the tournament while naming it after him.
