LAFAYETTE PARISH- The brothers of the Eta Gamma Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity incorporated along with Alphas throughout the area welcomed students at Dr. Raphael A. Baranco Elementary this morning on their first day of school.

The organization handed out over 300 donuts this morning as students arrived at school. President of the Eta Gamma Lambda chapter, Ravis K. Martinez, said "it's important to be an example and to encourage the students as they kick off the school year."
