First Asian American Supreme Court Justice?

U.S. Deputy Solicitor General Sri Srinivasan is pictured in this undated file photo courtesy of the United States Department of Justice. President Barack Obama has a number of likely options as he looks for a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who died on February 13, 2016. Among those the administration could turn to are Srinivasan, who has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since May 2013; Jacqueline Nguyen, a Vietnamese-American who has been a judge on the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since May 2012; Paul Watford, an African-American who is also a judge on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals; and Jane Kelly, a white woman and former public defender who has served on the St. Louis, Missouri-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since April 2013.

Sri Srinivasan is a member on the U.S. Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia Circuit and may potentially be President Obama’s leading choice to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. If this were to happen, he would be the first Asian American to be a part of the high court, according to the Washington Post.

Raising the Torch

On February 20, 1994, eleven men, coming from various backgrounds, established a brotherhood consisting of well-rounded leaders who would empower the Asian American community through leadership and service. These men believed that in order to accomplish this goal, they would have to instill the core values of this brotherhood into the future generation of leaders. These core values laid the foundation of Pi Delta Psi and became the four pillars: academic achievement, cultural awareness, righteousness, and friendship/loyalty.

Twenty-two years later, Pi Delta Psi has grown into an organization that continues to breed future leaders of tomorrow. No matter what, our brothers will raise the torch to light the path for our brotherhood as they guide the way towards success.
