Alpha Phi Alpha Honors Steven Brooks
Assemblyman Steven Brooks joined four other leading Nevadans in receiving top awards from Alpha Phi Alpha, the nation’s oldest black fraternity.
Brooks, who is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, received the fraternity's Award of Merit during the group’s 64th Western Regional Convention held recently in Las Vegas.
“To be honored by my fraternity, with its 105-year commitment to public service, humbles and inspires me,” said Brooks, who also belongs to Theta Pi Lambda, the Alpha Phi Alpha alumni chapter in Las Vegas.
Supreme Court Justice Michael Douglas, state Sen. Steven Horsford, and Las Vegas Councilman Ricki Barlow received Awards of Merit as well. Clark County Assistant Sheriff Greg McCurdy was recognized with the Award of Honor.
The awards, which recognize community involvement, are among the highest the fraternity can bestow.
