Kappa Sigma is pleased to welcome the Tau-Sigma Chapter at Angelo State University!

These 49 members were installed on Saturday October 24th. Past Worthy Grand Scribe Gregory S. Hunt was in attendance for the installation of this new Chapter. The members of Tau-Sigma have already completed 3,612 hours and raised $2,000 for A Greater Cause. This local community service supported many charitable organizations and is a great representation of the core values of Kappa Sigma.

The highlight of the evening though was the special initiation of Manuel “Manny” C. Rivas Sr.  The story behind his initiation is bittersweet.  His son, Manuel “Manny” C. Rivas Jr., was a member of the chapter while it was still a colony, but his life came to a tragic end this past June when he was involved in a watercraft collision at Angelo State University’s lake house.  Manny Jr. was a senior pursuing a double major and minor and was on track to graduate before his 21st birthday.  The loss came as a shock to his family, chapter brothers, and the entire ASU community.  So to honor his life, the Chapter initiated Manny Sr. in his place.  “All of the undergraduates are like sons to me,” Manny Sr. said, “and now I can call them brothers and share Kappa Sigma just as Manny wanted to.”

Congratulations to the Brothers of the newly installed Chapter and welcome to the Order!
