Mitchell B. Wilson, executive director of Kappa Sigma Fraternity, was inducted into the fraternity’s prestigious Hall of Honor on July 27 during its 69th Biennial Grand Conclave in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Wilson is the 18th overall inductee into the Hall of Honor, and one of only six living inductees. He joins distinguished alumni such as past U.S. Senators Robert J. Dole and John G. Tower, aerospace pioneer Willard F. Rockwell, Jr., and revered college administrator and Past Worthy Grand Master of Kappa Sigma, Dr. John W. Ryan, along with the five original founding fathers of the organization.
“All those who know Mic understand what a well-deserved honor this truly is,” said Hugh Robert, current president (Worthy Grand Master) of Kappa Sigma’s alumni board of directors. “Mic is a legend among executives of Greek Letter organizations, a trusted advisor to scores of collegiate administrators, a hard-working father and husband, a mentor to hundreds of fraternity brothers, and the foundational rock upon which Kappa Sigma launched its meteoric rise to be the number one men’s college fraternity today.”
Wilson is a 1978 initiate of the Beta-Nu Chapter at the University of Kentucky. After receiving his bachelor’s degree, he joined the Kappa Sigma headquarters staff in Charlottesville, Virginia, serving as chapter consultant. In the years to follow, Wilson would serve as director of chapter operations, director of public relations, interim executive director, and editor of The Caduceus of Kappa Sigma, the fraternity’s official publication.
In 1987, Wilson was named Kappa Sigma’s executive director, and served as president of the board of directors of the Fraternity Executives Association from 1999-2000. During Wilson’s tenure as executive director, Kappa Sigma has set new all-time records for membership recruitment, expansion and community service, and built a new state-of-the-art headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia.
