We are pleased to welcome back the Epsilon-Phi Chapter at Texas Tech University, originally the 152nd Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity!
These 56 new members were installed on Saturday, August 22, 2020, in Lubbock, TX. Worthy Grand Scribe, Burton R. Trembly, and the Director of Alumni Development and Events, KC Meyercord were in attendance for the installation of the new Chapter representing the Supreme Executive Committee, along with District Grand Master Nic Snowberger; and serving as Ritualist Adam Brown.
The members of the Epsilon-Phi Chapter have participated in over 2,900 hours of community service for charitable causes in various local and national organizations and philanthropies, and the members have established their operations in such a fashion that will build a strong foundation for the future of the Epsilon-Phi Chapter and is a great representation of the core values of Kappa Sigma.
Special thanks to the following Chapters for assisting with the installation: Epsilon-Upsilon (University of North Texas), Theta-Gamma (Midwestern State University), Nu-Omicron (University of Texas at Dallas), Tau-Sigma (Angelo State University), and the Alumni Volunteers in the New Mexico West Texas District.
Congratulations to the brothers of the newly installed Chapter, and welcome back to the Order!
This was a momentous achievement for the new chapter, but also for the Fraternity. This installation proves that during this pandemic, the need for brotherhood and Kappa Sigma is greater than ever, and we are willing and able to adapt to meet COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.
The installation implemented a number of health safety protocols to promote the wellness of members: initiations were staggered, masks were worn by all in attendance, social distancing was mandatory, and hand sanitizer was provided for use.
