Kappa Sigma Chapter at MSU Texas wins prestigious national award

For the second consecutive year, 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.

The Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence is the benchmark award in the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, recognizing outstanding chapter management, achievement, and program development in all areas of operation. Only 29 chapters of 291 chapters and colonies, received the FACE award within Kappa Sigma in 2022.

“Kappa Sigma is North America’s largest college social fraternity. We pledge more men and have more undergraduate members than any other fraternity, and we give more time in community service and more money to charitable causes than any other fraternity,” said Worthy Grand Master Adam J. Merillat, president of Kappa Sigma’s international board of directors. “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.”
