Kappa Alpha Psi Charter Ceremony a Historic Occasion
Submitted on October 9, 2019
Georgetown College will officially welcome Kappa Alpha Psi, the first historically Black fraternity to the campus community in a charter ceremony on Thursday, October 10th in John L. Hill Chapel at 8:00 pm.
Since its inception more than a century ago, Kappa Alpha Psi has sought to improve the world by focusing on people and empowering them towards greatness. The fraternity’s motto, “Achievement in Every Field of Human Endeavor” sets a clear agenda to leave the world a better place through innovation, creativity, and leadership.
The official name of the Georgetown College chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi is Rho Sigma. Current students and recent alumni who have been instrumental in the founding of the fraternity include: Bryson Brooks, Will Thomas, Zach Dampier, Nick Howard, Sam Dingle, Bryce Bowen, Demarius Steward ’19, and Germell Jenkins ’19.
Will Thomas, President of the Rho Sigma chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi said, “I’m honored to be able to help charter this fraternity on campus and help change the campus in such a positive way. We are looking forward to continuing our work putting on informational events on campus and making a difference in the surrounding community. I hope that it will lead to more historically Black Greek letter organizations and other minority organizations coming to campus.”
The charter of Kappa Alpha Psi follows on the heels of the charter of the college’s first historically Black sorority, Zeta Phi Beta, in the spring of 2019. In a year so far marked by new directions, the inception of these new Greek organizations is certainly a historic milestone.
