The University of Alabama Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Scholarship is administered in honor of the 

eight founding members of The Kappa Alpha Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Fraternity, Inc., reverently 

known as “The Excellent Eight.” Those members are Bruce Carl Allen, Melvin Grover Cleveland, Jr., 

Norman Merriweather, Van Cornelius Pinkard, Joe Clifford Ransaw†, Frank James Roscoe†, Alphonso 

Gary Wesley, and Sylvester Wilson. These men were great proponents of service and leadership to The 

University of Alabama and the Tuscaloosa communities. They coined the motto, “Through Striving We 

Shall Achieve, Through Achieving We Shall Succeed.”

"THROUGH STRIVING WE SHALL ACHIEVE, THROUGH ACHIEVING WE SHALL SUCCEED."
