Kappa Sigma Chapter at Midwestern State University Wins Prestigious National Award

The Kappa Sigma chapter at Midwestern State University has been awarded a Kappa Sigma Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence as one of the fraternity’s top chapters in North America.

“I’m so proud of the young men of Kappa Sigma at Midwestern State University,” said Dustin Hopson, the alumnus adviser to the Theta Gamma Chapter of Kappa Sigma at MSU. “In a scholastic year hindered by COVID, our young men found a way to be resilient and relentless in university and community duties. Winning the Founders Award of Chapter Excellence validates not only their efforts but also sets a benchmark and an expectation for the following semesters. Our goal is to mold young men into leaders and to continue to be an asset to the University and community.”

The Founders' Award of Chapter Excellence (FACE) is the benchmark award in the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, recognizing outstanding Chapter management, achievement, and program development in all areas of operation. Only 31 chapters received the FACE award within Kappa Sigma in 2021.

“This award was a huge honor to receive; not only did our chapter earn this award, but we were the only chapter in Texas to receive this recognition,” said Nic Hubbert, president of the Kappa Sigma, Theta Gamma chapter. “We are very excited for the upcoming fall and can’t wait to continue giving back!”

Kappa Sigma’s Theta Gamma chapter at Midwestern State University and its 34 members had the following achievements during its award-winning 2020-2021 academic year:
The chapter engaged in more than 1,500 hours of community service.
The chapter raised more than $10,700 for charitable causes.
The chapter raised more than $800 for the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign, which is committed to supporting ongoing care for our military veterans and their families. More information is available at www.MilitaryHeroesCampaign.org.
The chapter raised more than $2,600 for its Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund Chapter Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships to chapter members based upon academic achievement, campus involvement, and leadership within Kappa Sigma.
Kappa Sigma is the largest college social fraternity in the world with more than 200,000 living members, including over 17,000 undergraduates and 300 chapters and colonies located throughout the United States and Canada. Founded in 1869 at the University of Virginia, Kappa Sigma International Headquarters is based in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Kappa Sigma is North America’s largest college social fraternity. Winning a Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence means that our chapter at Midwestern State University is not just one of the best chapters in Kappa Sigma, but is one of the best fraternity chapters on any college campus in North America,” said Worthy Grand Master Adam J. Merillat, president of Kappa Sigma’s International Board of Directors.
