A healthy Fraternity is a living thing. It requires maintenance, care, and supervision. You are a member and an owner! To perpetuate our chapter and keep it strong, we as volunteers keep a close eye on the “beating heart” of our chapter, the Brothers and key statistics.
His summer, we shared the story of Jim Hunter, a fallen Vietnam War hero who earned many exceptional awards for his gallantry. This story prompted brother Milton Pope ’52 to share the story of his brother First Lt. Everett (Buddy) Lee Shields ’50, who was also regarded as a war hero when he served in the Korean War in the ’50s.
Because of our Alumni’s enthusiastic support, the Alumni Association is expanding their communications means to our Alumni by adding this Website and a Member E-blast to complement the newsletter distribution.This website presents news and features articles about our alumni and undergraduate chapter activities. As an alumnus, please make your contribution to the website by sharing memorable, funny stories about your Brothers, your Experience, and pictures about your School Days..
There is a long list of famous Kappa Alphas, and that’s not surprising. After all, Kappa Alpha is a place where we learned leadership and character, and that attracted men of character.
Gen. George S. Patton was an initiate of the Beta Commission of the Kappa Alpha Order. Henry McMaster, Governor of South Carolina (Rho) and Congressman Steve Womack R-Arkansas (Epsilon Zeta) are both Kappa Alpha Alums. The list goes on.
