University’s Theta Rho chapter of Kappa Sigma fraternity was
recently presented with four national awards at the 71st Biennial Grand
Conclave in Las Vegas, Nev.
McNeese fraternity received the coveted the Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence
and the Founders’ Circle Award – two awards that are only given to a small
handful of chapters around the country each year.
Founders’ Circle Award is the highest award given to chapters based on the
areas of fellowship, leadership, scholarship and service, while the Founders’ Award
is the benchmark award in Kappa Sigma – recognizing outstanding chapter
management, achievement and program development.
chapter also received the 100% Ritual Proficiency and Military Heroes Campaign
Champion awards. Last year, Theta Rho raised the sixth largest amount of money
for Kappa Sigma’s national philanthropy, Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign, according
to Austin Pottorff, Kappa Sigma president.
