Knight Commander's Message

Dear Brothers, Where will KA be in 2020? It’s worth asking the question though it’s hard to think that far ahead. As we close out this decade, I definitely appreciate the opportunity to reflect on the success of the 2000s as this issue of The Journal will help us do. We’ve had a tremendous decade of excellence with so many things of which to be proud. I’m amazed looking back at how much progress we’ve made in so many areas. Having been involved with KA for many years now, I feel we are poised to have an even better decade kicking off in 2011. And here’s why . . . Because of our renewed emphasis and focus on academic performance, we have made huge strides in the direction of achieving what some might have previously thought impossible – a 3.0 GPA for the Order. Nothing is impossible for those who see clearly the success they want to achieve. And it starts with setting the right goals. With our cumulative GPA now hovering around 2.86, we are well within reach of hitting that mark in the next few years. Our society today is putting more emphasis on “giving back” and being involved in volunteer service – whether in your community, on campus, or at your place of work. If the Order is going to strive and thrive, it must cultivate and empower a culture of giving back. Those graduating from our military schools, such as the Virginia Military Institute, are prime examples. When they graduate, they know that giving back is not only a part of their experience, but is expected of them. Forever KA is an initiative currently in the works that we hope will accomplish this type of culture within the Order. Stay tuned for much more on this exciting initiative. Our purpose to build leaders among men is simple, yet profound. It must continue to be the driving force in all that we do. I believe that our leadership training is among the best available, and as long as we keep this our focus, we will continue impacting our members in a significant and lasting way. As the number of members who receive this training increases across the country, our success will continue to grow and bring to fruition achievements our founders would never have dreamed possible. I wish you the very best as we start a new year and want to extend my sincere thanks for your continued interest in, and support of, Kappa Alpha Order.

Wow…what a decade it has been for KA. Looking back at that first Journal I did in 2000, I’m struck by a number of things. It was a bittersweet time as we looked ahead to a new decade. We had just lost KA giant and legend, Bill Forester. The Crusade was in its infancy, having just completed its first pilot year. I was off and running in my new role as Director of Communications and Editor of The Journal - at age 22 no less. Not in a million years would I have foreseen that I would also be closing out the 2000s with the decade’s last issue. To add further irony, it is a bittersweet time (for me at least) once again as this last issue of the 2000s will also mark my last issue with Kappa Alpha . . . and is my 20th edition. Life is full of surprises, and this circumstance of serving as the “bookends editor” of the decade for our magazine ranks up there for me. As you’ll read about in our cover story, the 2000s have been a magnificent time of development and achievement for the Order. One might call it the “Adventures in Educational Programming,” starring (fellow Epsilon Theta) brother Brent Fellows, who I’d like to point out has just celebrated his 10th year on staff with KA. Fellows has been a key player in the dramatic advancement of our educational programming. I’ve had the privilege of working with many talented and capable people over the years, and I’m just amazed at the caliber of people I am surrounded with at the national office - people who love and devote themselves to an ideal and an experience that really does make a difference in our nation and our world. As noted in my “farewell letter” in 2003, I’m off to life’s next adventure . . . once again. Like then, I don’t expect to return, but you never know what life has in store. In that spirit, I want to urge you – no matter your age or stage in life, or your level of membership in KA – to make sure you’re leaving a legacy you’d want to follow. My five-year “sabbatical” from KA in the mid 2000s gave me keen insight on how special KA truly is. As brothers, we are temporary stewards of an important vehicle for building leaders among men. I don’t have to tell you how critical it is to our nation’s future that we play a vital role in remaining steadfast in this, our ultimate purpose. We must realize that without leaders of noble character, strong conviction and authentic faith, America will not survive. Anyone with any historical context and a passion for this great nation understands how critical authentic servant leadership is in our present hour and beyond. Who will lead the next great spiritual awakening and resurgence of statesmanship in this sacred land of liberty? Why not you? Why not me? Why not the men of Kappa Alpha Order? As we look ahead to the next decade, let us ponder seriously the role we should play in developing and shaping leaders among men who may someday make all the difference . . . Excelsior!

Dear Brothers,

Our Order Kappa Alpha Order surpasses 150,000 initiates Outstanding young gentleman at Drury University holds distinguished honor

Left: Councilor Kay with Brother Blackshear; right: Executive Director Wiese, Former Knight Commander Taylor, Councilor Kay, and Chiles Province Commander Schmuck with Blackshear and his new member class.

Kappa Alpha Order is proud to celebrate the milestone of 150,000 total initiates. Earlier this year, members of the national staff confirmed that on November 20, 2009, Drury student Steven R. Blackshear was initiated by Beta Iota Chapter at Drury University, and became the 150,000th initiate of Kappa Alpha Order. Upon review of records at the National Administrative Office, a timeline of specific initiation dates of all members

in the fall of 2009 was established. By tracking badge numbers issued to each initiate and used to identify membership, Blackshear was identified as the milestone initiate according to his badge number, O-5005. “I was shocked at first when I got the call. It caught me off guard and took me a while to realize what a big deal this was,” says Blackshear. “It makes me feel proud that I can be part of an Order that has become so big.” Hailing from Springfield, Missouri, Blackshear is a Pre-Med major, now a sophomore, with a 3.48 cumulative GPA. He serves his chapter as the Number VII and is also involved with the Drury Interfraternity Council. Andrea Battaglia, Director of Greek Life & Student Involvement at Drury praised Blackshear saying, “he is an essential member of our IFC on campus and we hope that he moves into major leadership roles in the chapter and Greek community in the near future.” A reception was held at Beta Iota’s chapter house on November 9th in Steven’s honor. Presiding there was Councilor Darren S. Kay (AH-Westminster ‘88) who presented a replica of an original badge that our founders wore in the 1860s. Each member of the initiation class that joined KA with Steven also received a

special enlarged KA badge. Councilor Kay also presented Steven and the chapter with a framed proclamation designating their roles in initiating the 150,000th member. Reflecting on the honor, Blackshear says, “This is important to me because it makes me feel like I am part of such a huge brotherhood…I can call 150,000 people my brothers. This will impact my experience greatly by trying to get more guys to join KA.” In addition to Councilor Kay and Former Knight Commander Jack R. Taylor (AK-Missouri ‘49), others in attendance included Executive Director Larry S. Wiese (ΓΩ-Midwestern State ‘87), Chiles Province Commander James “Jim” Schmuck (AH-Westminster ‘69), Chiles Deputy Province Commander Thaddeus “Thad” Stubbs (AH-Westminster ‘96), Chiles Deputy Province Commander Chad E. Wagoner (ΔΠ-Missouri Southern State ’93), Director of Fraternity Services Michael P. Wilson (ΑΘ-Transylvania ’00), Drury University President Todd Parnell, Dean of Students Dr. Tijuana Julian, Director of Greek Life & Student Involvement Andrea Battaglia, Director of Retention and KA alumnus Chip Parker (BI-Drury ’80) and several local KA alumni.

Western provinces consolidate

New Varlet published

In order to better serve the active chapters in what is considered the “western” region of Kappa Alpha Order, the Advisory Council, led by the Knight Commander, recently voted to reconstitute the John R. Berryman and Daniel R. Neal Provinces into one. Neal Province will include the two active chapters and one provisional chapter that were in Berryman Province. Because Berryman Province is the younger of the two, tradition called for it to become inactive and for Neal Province to envelope the former Berryman Province.

Not since 2003 has KA published a new edition of the Order’s membership manual, The Varlet. And not since 1997 has the Varlet undergone such a complete overhaul.

After a thorough review and evaluation of the Western provinces and chapters by the national administrative staff, it was determined that it was impractical to maintain two separate sets of volunteer leaders for so few chapters (five total with one provisional). Therefore, this reconstitution will allow for a restructuring of volunteer resources to properly allocate trained leaders throughout the western chapters as well as provide a single source of regional authority via one province commander. The Neal Province Commander will have specific performance responsibilities to enhance the western region, work with the national staff, and to support the active chapters. While the chapters are geographically disconnected, through current technology and the province reporting system, one province commander will be able to more effectively support, and ultimately benefit, the active chapters in the new boundaries.

The Order releases totally revamped 12th edition

“We’re very excited about all that the new edition has to offer. We think both active and alumni will be enthused about getting one,” says co-editor and Director of Educational Programming, Brent Fellows. Included in the new edition is a special “Historical Sites of KA” section of color photographs, a KA History timeline in the history chapter, a composite of the Order’s Knight Commanders and of course all new and updated information and images. One of the biggest changes is how the content is organized. The book is separated into three sections: New Member, Active Member and Alumnus. Each section is more geared toward its respective level of membership. This makes it more of a true membership manual - something all KAs will cherish and find useful throughout life. This is especially true for the alumnus section, which covers all of the ways alumni can stay connected, involved and ultimately giving back. “When you think about the significance of The Varlet, it is essentially the second most important publication of KA,” says

co-editor and Director of Communications, Matt Bonner. “The Varlet is much more accessible, and we encourage every member, no matter your age or stage, to consider ordering a copy of this very sharp and exciting 12th edition.” What better way to get up to speed on all things KA and to rekindle the KA spirit? Order your copy of the 12th edition today! Contact Anita Snyder at the National Administrative Office, 540-463-1865 or

Our Order Kappa Alpha Order’s Claim and Dispute Resolution Plan Beginning October 1, 2007 Kappa Alpha Order implemented a Claim and Dispute Resolution Plan. Since that time the plan has been made available to all members through mailings, email communications, via, The Kappa Alpha Journal, reviewed annually during visits from the national administrative staff and as a required read by all new members when completing their on-line membership card. The Kappa Alpha Order Claim and Dispute Resolution Plan binds members and the Order to handle problems through a series of measures designed to bring timely resolution. It is a process that allows claims and grievances to be objectively considered and resolved without forcing the Order or the member to resort to courts of law. By implementing this plan at large, Kappa Alpha Order joins the ranks of many other successful, diverse organizations that have developed similar programs. For more information, please visit

Stephen A Womack (EZ-Arkansas ’78) is awarded the Order’s Distinguished Public Service Award by the Executive Council, the Order’s second highest Alumni Award. The award was presented by former Councilor Harold Cornett, Jr. (ΓΨ-Northwestern State University ‘71) at a city council meeting in August of this year. The award is given to honor members who have pursued the KA tenet of excellence through a life of service to others. Brother Womack was recognized for his service in the Arkansas National Guard, as Chairman of the Arkansas Commission on National and Community Services, and his service to the city of Rogers, Arkansas as Mayor. As the award stated, “His countless contributions to his community have earned him the utmost respect and admiration from his family, friends and colleagues.” Womack was also recently elected to Congress (Arkansas 3rd District).

A Hilltopper quartet at Mulberry Hill Four Epsilon Theta Alums currently serve the Order’s staff

Nobody is really sure how it happened. Some say it’s a conspiracy from the blue grass state. None the less, four members of the current national staff hail from Big Red country at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, bringing the total Epsilon Theta alums to ever work for the Order to five. In order of hire, they are Scott Toncray (’91), Matt Bonner (’96), Brent Fellows (’98), Chris Woods (’03) and Jeff Moad (’06). Toncray, who served Epsilon Theta as Number I, worked on staff as an educational and leadership consultant (ELC) from 1994 through 1996. He then served in a volunteer role as the alumnus advisor for the chapter when Bonner served as Number I and Fellows served as Number VII. Toncray was instrumental in assisting the chapter when its 100 year old chapter house went up in flames in November of ’98. “It was not too long after we lost the house that Scott was really helpful in guiding me on my future plans and interest in working for KA...he even helped me practice and prepare for an interview,” says Bonner. No stranger to crisis, Toncray had dealt with a shooting on campus at the Sigma Nu house while he was Number I, which prompted encouragement from long time Greek Advisor Charley Pride and others to seek employment with the national office. Toncray is now in Orlando, Florida, newly married and working as the Director of External and Public Relations for the Wycliffe Foundation. Bonner was hired in January of ’99 and began his first stint with KA in June of that year as an ELC. After nearly a year in that role, he was promoted to Director of Communications and Editor of The Kappa Alpha Journal. He served in that capacity until January of 2003 when he moved back to his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. After working in corporate communications with Hospital Corporation of America, Bonner rejoined the staff in January of 2008 in his old position.

Fellows, who went on to serve the chapter as Number III, was first hired in 2000 while visiting Lexington and chapter brother Bonner with no intention of seeking employment. On his first ever trek to the Order’s birth place, Fellows had no idea he would head home with a job working for KA! “I had a wonderful

experience in college with Kappa Alpha Order,” says Fellows. “The idea of working for my fraternity to make it better for future members was very exciting for me.” As fate would have it, the Order needed one more ELC to complete its team of field staff, and after meeting Fellows, Executive Director Larry Wiese

Our Order

(ΓW-Midwestern State ’87) asked him if interested in applying for the open spot. Fellows traveled for two years and was then hired as the Director of Educational Programming, the position he has held ever since. It was also fate that Fellows would meet his future wife, Lisa Burch, who was hired to work for KA around the same time. In January of 2009, Woods was hired as a Special Assistant to the Executive Director where he was responsible for event planning and special projects. In June of that year, Woods became an associate director for chapter development (ADCD) working with provisional chapters as they work to get chartered. Woods also served Epsilon Theta as Number I in addition to Number III, Recruitment Chair, and Council of Honor Chairman. He was

also the Candler Province Undergraduate Chairman. “I joined the KA staff because of my passion for the mission of the organization” says Woods. “I have the best job in the world because of the opportunity to provide young men with an experience that helped me make the most of my college career.” Moad joined the Order’s staff in June of 2010 as an ADCS after his participation in the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship program in D.C. While at Western, Moad served the chapter as Number III, V, Recruitment Chair, Phase III Commander and IFC Delegate. He was also the IFC President, IFC VP of Recruitment, and Relay for Life Co-Chair.

phenomenal,” says Moad. “No other job right out of school could allow me so much responsibility and so many opportunities to travel across the country...working on staff is like joining another active chapter full of dedicated, passionate individuals who work hard, but like to have a good time.” It’s rare indeed that within that “active chapter” of dedicated individuals who work for the Order, four members of the same chapter would find themselves on staff at the same time. And it’s not likely to happen again anytime soon. For the time being, however, these WKU Hilltoppers cherish their common roots and “rule the roost” at Mulberry Hill.

decade of excellence KA in the 2000s

KA Journal


Winter 2010

It would be hard to identify a decade of greater progress and achievement for Kappa Alpha Order. The 2000s have seen more development, advancement, improvements and milestones than any other period in modern KA history. Some might point to advancing technology, but in reality it has been a sincere dedication and focus on improving the KA experience that made the 2000s a decade of excellence. Headlining this progress are the leaps and bounds our educational programming has taken over the past decade. With an increased size and scope of program offerings has come an increased accountability to producing an authentic KA experience. And along each step of the way, Active members have risen to the challenge, proving that with higher standards, a greater level of achievement can be attained. We’ve seen this manifested through scholastic achievement, increased recruitment numbers, a reduced number of risk management claims, and even such operational outcomes as much higher collection rates, compliance in filing tax forms and keeping legitimate chapter budgets. Much fruit has been harvested as a result of the seeds planted by the following advancements and developments, noted in chronological order.

Though birthed in 1998-99, led by Former Knight Commander Ben Satcher (ΔO-Clemson ’79), The Crusade program has been brought to maturity in the 2000s, ushered along by the RoundTable launched in 2000. An intensive and highpowered conference to train each Crusade Chapter’s program leader – the Crusade Commander – the RoundTable has become a successful and well-loved conference. There are 48 chapters participating in The Crusade program, which is designed as a total membership development experience created to provide an environment of ongoing learning and growing throughout the active member’s time in school. These members are excelling scholastically, increasing philanthropic service, managing their finances more effectively, and recruiting and retaining more members. Each year, most of our Awards for Chapter Excellence are earned by Crusade chapters, and since the program began, all of the George C. Marshall Award winners have been Crusade chapters. Another significant program initiated just prior to the turn of the century was Leadership KA, developed by Former Knight Commander Jim Estes (AKMissouri ’60). Leadership KA is an alumni training program piloted in 2001 and designed to recruit, educate and retain alumni volunteers. Held biennially at the Order’s Convention, this program provides in-depth workshops covering all aspects of the Order’s operations and the various


issues facing the organization today. Over 100 brothers have participated in the program since its inception. Established in 2002 by Former Knight Commander David M. “Dink” Warren (T-Wake Forrest ’78), Operation Crimson Gift serves as a critical component of our project outreach efforts, saving thousands of lives each year. Held annually throughout the year, Operation Crimson Gift provides an opportunity for brothers to donate blood through chapter and campus blood drives. To date, approximately 7,324 brothers have donated blood through Operation Crimson Gift. Launched in 2003, the Number I’s Leadership Institute has become the crown jewel of the Order’s exceptional educational programs. It is highly recognizable in the fraternity world, serving as a model for other similar officer training programs. Building on a solid KA tradition of officer training since 1946, NLI is the second oldest fraternity leadership school in the nation, originating as the Officer Training School. Since that time, officer training had taken place every summer, but without the structure of consistent election cycles. It became clear that the most efficient use of time and resources dictated a more focused approach with our chapter presidents in conjunction with a required election period consistent across the Order. Additionally, the vision for an expanded offering of educational

programming to cover the remaining officers and positions has become reality. Now, NLI trains, equips and empowers every Number I in the Order, just after taking office. Since its restructuring in 2003 to focus solely on chapter presidents, the average attendance rate has been 95 percent, and 98 percent the last three years - a rate unheard of around the world of Greek programming. Knight Commander Mike Duncan, who was instrumental in the implementation of the “new” NLI, has also served as the Dean of the Institute since 2003. An important maturation of the organization occurred in 2003, when the Loyal Order was launched alongside a restructuring of The Kappa Alpha Journal subscription policy. Facing increased production and mailing costs, the Order was forced to alter the way it paid for the magazine and instituted the Loyal Order as a way to endow the magazine and create a new way for brothers to stay connected to and involved in Kappa Alpha. The Loyal Order is essentially a group of active and alumni brothers dedicated to the enduring bonds of our brotherhood and to the future success of KA. Over 2,400 brothers have joined the Loyal Order to date. To join, please log onto Outside of the programming realm, the Order experienced a unique event when William A. Wood, the grandson of founder, James Ward Wood, was initiated as a special initiate at the seventieth Convention in Tampa, Florida in 2003. Brother Wood has been instrumental in increasing our knowledge

and understanding of his grandfather, providing a wealth of information and access to his grandfather’s life and legacy. As a result, the newest edition of The Varlet is dedicated to Brother Wood and that legacy that he carries from our principal founder, James Ward Wood. Created in 2004, the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship program is another stellar offering available to our undergraduates, providing a unique summer of learning and life experiences in Washington D.C. The program, instigated by KAOEF Trustee Bill Skipper (ΔΤ-Francis Marion ’80), is one of the most successful and highly sought after programs available to members. Each summer, five outstanding candidates are chosen to participate in this popular program. Through an ongoing partnership with our alumni, these men come back changed and empowered to achieve things they never thought possible. Thirty-one brothers have now taken part in this spectacular program. To learn more, visit

One of the more prominent events of the 2000s was the Order’s move out of the historic Rockbridge County Jail in 2004 where it had been since 1992. Forced out of the building when the property was acquired by the county for expanding the courthouse and its facilities, the change was, at first, an unwanted one. Discovering the stately and historic manor house of Mulberry Hill changed the outlook, however, and the Order made the necessary arrangements to make it the Order’s new home. Sitting atop a beautiful eight acre property of rolling lawns with magnificent trees, the new home has proven to be a perfect fit – especially from a historical standpoint, with Robert E. Lee having stayed at the home just prior to taking over as President of Washington College. With room to grow, Mulberry Hill will be an outstanding headquarters for the Order for many years to come. On the chapter operational front, the Order took important steps to raise the overall standards of chapter achievement

taking participants out of the classroom and into the streets and historical locations significant to our founding. Over 350 brothers have taken part in this registration based program which is significant in that brothers see the value in the program so much so that they pay their own way, and the attendance continues to increase. Most importantly, the goal of the academy is being achieved: brothers who attend are becoming the future leaders of their chapters as evidenced by successive officer elections.

Another impactful evolution in the realm of our educational programming this past decade was the Emerging Leaders Academy started in 2006. The academy targets our future chapter leaders and provides them an opportunity to increase their knowledge about basic chapter operations, leadership, and how to instigate positive change within their chapter. The conference is held in Lexington, Virginia and is intended to provide a different learning experience by

Also kicking off in 2006 was the Stewards of the Order conference designed as an interactive ritual-based workshop that focuses on the symbolism and philosophy of the ritual, production of the initiation ceremony and the origins of our fraternity. Developed by Councilors Russell Brown (DS- Houston Baptist ’82) and Bubba Simmons (BT-Mississippi State ’95), nearly 300 brothers have taken part in this unique program and become “Stewards” of the Order, passing an oral exam and receiving a certificate, lapel


Seeking to get an edge on our recruitment efforts on campus, the Order developed a totally new and dynamic recruitment tool in 2008 called “Brasstacks – the Modern Compass for the Modern Gentleman.” The initiative, started by Councilor Darren Kay (AH-Westminster ’88), caters to today’s students and is driven by a manual, website and a unique strategy that targets incoming freshman prior to, or immediately after arriving on campus. If executed properly, Brasstacks is designed to greatly expand a chapter’s recruiting pool of candidates for membership. It’s proving to be an effective and valuable tool with the chapters who are using it seeing a 33 percent increase in new members! Visit Brasstacks online at One of the more historic and far reaching developments of the 2000s was the re-establishment of the Theta Commission at the Citadel, modeled after the successful Beta Commission at the Virginia Military Institute. Working

and operation by creating and adopting the Active Chapter Minimum Expectations in 2004. Targeting five core areas of operations, chapters are expected to improve and excel in Ritual, Academic Performance, Membership Growth, Finance, and Membership Education. These expectations insure that our chapters are continually striving for excellence. Since their implementation, the Order has seen an overall improvement in chapter performance and their ability to achieve chapter goals and win awards.

One of the most vital and far reaching expansions in the educational programming realm came about through the building up and enhancement of our regional province councils in 2006. With more emphasis on training undergraduates, all nine chapter officers are required to attend. As a result, one third of our undergraduate members attend and participate in this training, which covers leadership, risk management, recruitment, The Crusade, Number IV Track, ritual, scholarship, member education, and personal development. Increased exposure to a larger body of undergraduates has improved the overall quality of the KA experience for our undergraduates.

decade of excellence in conjunction with the Beta Gamma Chapter in Charleston, South Carolina, five men who graduated from The Citadel were specially initiated in 2008. Shortly after, the Advisory Council unanimously supported the re-activation of Theta (Second) Commission to be known simply as the Theta Commission. James A.W. Rembert, one of the five special initiates, was named chairman of the Commission. Like the Beta Commission, all initiates are recently graduated alumni from the Citadel and begin their association with KA as alumni. To learn more about the Theta Commission, please contact Director of Chapter Development Jesse Lyons. In 2009, an idea originated from an undergraduate member of the armed forces, Mark Rogers (ΔΑ-Western Carolina ’04), and ultimately flourished into The Military Division of Kappa Alpha Order. Designed to formally recognize brothers who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, the newly formed division bestows the brother with a certificate and a lapel pin. The pin features the Maltese Cross which features KA’s colors and has eight points which symbolize the chivalric virtues of loyalty, piety, frankness, bravery, honor, contempt of death, helpfulness towards the poor and sick and respect for the church. To join, or recommend a member, log on to our website. On the academic front, a steady increase in scholastic standards has been implemented by the Executive Council, beginning in 2003. Several phases of standards increases have ultimately raised our level of academic achievement. Part of this included the addition of a national Scholarship Officer in 2006, which has been chaired by Greg Singleton (ΓΓMemphis ’82). As a result of these steps, our chapters achieved the highest GPA in history with a 2.868 in 2009. Another outstanding achievement by our undergraduate brothers is the total amount raised for MDA, our national philanthropy. Since 2000, our

active members have raised a total of $1,734,745! This is an amazing figure that reflects high honor on the commitment our brothers make to MDA each and every year, especially throughout the 2000s. To put this in perspective, consider that our total giving to MDA since 1975 is $2.7 million. This means that for the first 25 years of our partnership with MDA, we raised roughly $1 million. The rest of that $2.7 million total has come in just the last 10 years! Over the course of the 2000s, we also recognized important staff service

Additionally, the Foundation’s annual Bid-For-Brotherhood auction reached a big milestone this past year: $500,000 in total funds raised from the event since its inception in 1998. One of the most prominent milestones and records of achievement for the Foundation since 2000 is the incredible amount of scholarship funds it has awarded to undergraduates: $1,061,366! This is a tremendous accomplishment made possible by the generosity of our alumni and we take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude on behalf of all the students who have been helped by these scholarships over the past decade. Without you, this simply would not have been possible. Reflecting back on this decade of excellence, it’s easy to begin pondering what lies ahead. What does the next decade have in store for Kappa Alpha Order? Though undetermined and unwritten, it is not without significant direction, mission and purpose. If the countless seeds of hard work, dedication and excellence being sown now are any indication of what the future holds, then it will indeed be bright, prosperous and successful. But we must also remember that now is not the time to sit back on our laurels. Though we pause at this juncture to celebrate a decade of excellence buttressed by a noble past, the future belongs to the active, the courageous and those who stand on conviction with clarity. The moral compass of the modern gentleman of Kappa Alpha must remain true. And finally, if our roots remain firmly planted in the sacred values and principles that bind us as brothers, then excellence will not only remain our aim, but our ever rising banner of achievement.

Successful alumni have served an invaluable role at our leadership conferences, sharing their experiences and life lessons learned as seen here in Lee Chapel for the Emerging Leaders Academy.

provides the lifeline for these principle achievements. Headlining these was the move to Mulberry Hill in 2004, which was made possible by the Foundation. The KAOEF also celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2007 and capped the celebration with the completion of the largest capital campaign in the Order’s history in 2009. Raising over $11 million, the “Honoring Our Past – Securing Our Future Campaign for Every KA” is creating permanent endowments for many of the leadership and educational opportunities provided to our undergraduates every year.

Alumni News Fun and games KA friendship leads to business partnership by Wendy Lovell

Clay Hilbert (Τ-Wake Forest ’93) and Joe Parrish (Τ-Wake Forest ’92) are more than Kappa Alpha brothers and college friends. Despite living more than 200 miles away and working in different professions, the two are business partners, specializing in fun and games. On a long car ride to a friend’s bachelor party seven years ago, the pair came up with a business idea, blending Hilbert’s financial knowledge and Parrish’s creativity. “During the ride, we reminisced about how our friendship was largely formed over a variety of home-grown competitions in the KA lodge,” said Hilbert, who is a senior vice president and head of business development for Davenport & Company LLC in Richmond, Virginia. “The more we remembered, the more we laughed, and the more certain we became about reuniting to form a company around our passion for fun, competition and play.” The concept became a reality over once-a-week meetings squeezed in between work and family. A year later, they finalized their business philosophy: everything they do must be TUBS (Totally, Unexpected, Brilliantly Simple) and their company, 5mississippi, was up and running.

Since then, they have grown in their fields—Parrish is a partner at a WinstonSalem, North Carolina advertising agency—and so has 5mississippi. For the past two years, the KA brothers have built their own brand, tackling everything from manufacturing to sales, around Hookum, a product they view as having the best chance for long-term success. Hilbert and Parrish’s table-top game is based on the Bimini ring game played in the Caribbean, in which the player swings a ring suspended from a beam onto a hook. Hookum stands about two feet high and two feet across, allowing up to four people to test their skill on what appears to be an easy game that can be maddeningly difficult. “Hookum is unique in that it allows an 87-year-old grandmother to compete with her 7-year-old grandson,” said Parrish. “It’s a game that almost anyone can enjoy, and it can bring any gathering to life with action-packed, head-to-head battles


or group competitions. Best of all, it is ready for play out of the box—no parts, no assembly, no batteries required.” Since Hookum was introduced in January 2010, it has attracted the attention of Radar Online, which called it the “the breakout game of the decade,” and it was named one of the daily Top 5 toys by ToyDirectory at the International Toy Fair in New York. Hookum also can be found in Dillard’s department stores and in the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog.   “If sales in the first six months are any indication, this game might just be the ticket for us to realize our goals, a path unknowingly set in motion back in a Kappa Alpha lodge more than 15 years ago,” said Hilbert.

Former Tennessee Governor honored Winfield Dunn (AU-Mississippi ‘48) was recently honored by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee with their Annual Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award for his leadership and dedication to the wellbeing of the community. “This recognition is undeserved and unearned, but certainly pleasing. I am fortunate to live in a great community where doing for others is engrained and for that I am eternally grateful,” says Dunn. Dunn became the 43rd Governor of Tennessee in 1970, and the first Republican governor in 50 years. The World War II Navy veteran, largely a political unknown before announcing his candidacy, worked during his four years as governor to overcome partisanship and advance the state through creation of public parks; publicly funded, statewide kindergarten; and properly maintained safe highways. Dunn’s leadership resulted in the creation of the Department of Economic and Community Development and the Tennessee Housing Development Agency.

In 1975, prevented by the state constitution from seeking a second term, Dunn joined the board of directors and executive department of Hospital Corporation of America. Serving on numerous corporate boards and Presidential Commissions over the years, including chairman of the Federation of American Hospitals and presidential appointment to the National Committee on Highway Safety, Dunn has also served the community through several civic and charitable organizations. He has been active with the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, Nashville Heart Association and Character Counts! Nashville, among many others, and continues to serve on the board of the YMCA Foundation. When asked how his KA experience shaped his future life as a citizen politician, Dunn says "My KA experience had a fundamental impact on my interest in helping others and coupled with my upbringing, gave me the urge when the opportunity was afforded me, to live a

Still today, I am proud of what the Order continues to do for young men.” The Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award was created to perpetuate the memory of a remarkable person who contributed to the Middle Tennessee community with strength of character and unwavering integrity. Annually, The Community Foundation recognizes local leaders who share Kraft’s same philanthropic passion and commitment to making life better for others with the award, which includes the opportunity to recommend a grant from the Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award Fund be distributed to charities in which he or she believes. Because of Dunn’s dedication, like Joe Kraft, to improving the quality of life for Middle Tennesseans through hard work, dedication to service and strong faith in the human spirit, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has named him the 17th Annual Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award recipient.

Leading the way KA becomes President of Millsaps College by Wendy Lovell

Since its founding in 1865, the Kappa Alpha Order has produced many leaders. Brothers have served with distinction in the military; have led some of the largest businesses in America; have entertained on the stage, the screen and on television; and have competed in professional sports. KAs also have served presidents and in Congress and as governors; in high levels in churches and as college presidents. Robert W. Pearigen (ΑΑ – Univ. of the South ’73) joined the ranks of KAs at the helm of some of the nation’s colleges and universities when he became Millsaps College’s 11th president on July 1. The liberal arts college in the heart of Jackson, Miss., is associated with the United Methodist Church and has students from 27 states and 24 countries. It offers 34 majors, 40 minors, and a master of business administration and master of accountancy through the Else School of Management. Dan Bowling (ΑΜ – Millsaps ’74) is an attorney on the faculties of Duke Law School and the University of Pennsylvania. He was on the selection committee that chose Pearigen as Millsaps new president.

Upon his appointment, Pearigen said it was a distinct privilege to become part of the Millsaps community.

Pearigen is no stranger to liberal arts institutions. An expert in Constitutional law, he’s a 1976 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Sewanee and earned his master’s and doctoral degrees in political science at Duke University. Following academic appointments at Virginia Tech and Hillsdale College, he returned to Sewanee in 1987 as dean of students and a member of the political science department, rising from assistant professor to vice president. As Sewanee’s dean, Pearigen reorganized and oversaw the student affairs division, served on various university committees, played a leading


role in the design and construction of several buildings on campus, and was a leader in the campus fraternity and sorority restoration project. “Millsaps has a strong fraternity and sorority program, and I'm pleased that the legacy of the KA chapter is one of academic achievement, leadership, and community service. I look forward to working with our students, staff and alumni to enhance an already meaningful Greek system," he says. In his role as vice president for university relations, Pearigen served as the university’s chief development officer and led its $180 million capital campaign, which met and exceeded its goal by $26 million. His experience will serve Millsaps well as it has just concluded a $160 million capital campaign and is now working on its next strategic plan. Pearigen’s wife, Phoebe, is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of BirminghamSouthern College and Southern Methodist University, where she received her master’s of fine arts degree. They have two children, Carolyn and Wesley.

“Rob was well and favorably known to several us through his work at Sewanee, but once he got in front of the search committee—a diverse and incredible bunch of people—it became clear he was the perfect choice for Millsaps,” said Bowling. “He combines humility with deep intellectual heft and gravitas, humor and warmth, and those combinations don’t always come in the same package. He also has a tremendous sense of honor and fairness, and although he doesn’t wear it on his sleeve, knowing he represents all Greek organizations at Millsaps, he is the perfect embodiment of a Kappa Alpha.”

“Millsaps has a history of bold and courageous leadership in higher education, and today it is known as an exemplar of liberal arts as preparation for life,” he said. “Millsaps makes a difference in the lives of students who grow to become critical thinkers and leaders throughout the country. The college’s stellar academic environment, provided by nationally acclaimed faculty and outstanding support staff, combines with the gifts of its students to create an ideal liberal arts college experience.”

Global Family KA Finds New Direction in Kenya by Wendy Lovell

A.B. Puckett’s grandmother insisted that his family gather once a year, a big feat considering his father is one of five children whose families are scattered across the country. Before she passed away, she suggested those annual gatherings include an element of service. The Puckett family trip to Kenya in 2005 was the first of such gatherings and a tribute to the family matriarch. For Puckett (Ι-Furman ’00) it was a trip that changed his life. “Twenty members of my family went to Kenya for two weeks,” said Puckett, a financial advisor with Edward Jones at the time. “You hear a lot about poverty, but it doesn’t sink in until you experience it firsthand—when you see it and smell it. These people are so full of life despite how little they have.” In the next year, Puckett made a few trips back to Kenya. Inspired by a couple who took in homeless children in their village, he decided to help on a full-time basis by founding Global Connections, a non-profit organization that arranges trips to serve and learn from the world’s most marginalized people. Since 2007, Global Connections has led more than 150 people on trips, giving them the opportunity to explore the beauty of Kenya as well as its poverty, and placing them in positions to help others during their stay. Puckett has assembled a small staff that’s making a big difference in the areas they serve. In addition to leading trips to Kenya, Global Connections supports the Limuru Children’s Centres, which provide food, basic education, health care and housing for children on the outskirts of Nairobi. The organization also is working to provide clean drinking water and food relief for Kenya’s most impoverished. Now that Global Connections has developed a solid staff, Puckett has scaled back his day-to-day work with the

organization. He spends part of his time with the Columbus Brick Company, his family’s business. As president of Global Connections, he continues to provide the big picture oversight for the nonprofit and build relationships with other organizations that serve the poor. Puckett also has spent time in Haiti exploring relief agencies, and he returned days after the earthquake in January. He found the devastation indescribable, and he said Americans can be more helpful with their donations rather than their time. “I was really blown away by how bad it is in Haiti,” said Puckett. “But, just because there’s a need doesn’t mean there’s an application for you to serve. Right now Haiti needs volunteers with special skills—city planners, construction workers and medical specialists.” He’s learned through founding and leading Global Connections that helping

others in such impoverished areas isn’t always easy. The knowledge he and his staff have acquired in a few short years provides a good outlet for those unfamiliar with Kenya to help. Puckett’s learned that cultural differences can be a challenge in helping the impoverished in other countries, and he’s also discovered how to select the right people and other agencies to partner with in advancing Global Connections’ work. “I was never interested in working for a non-profit agency, but my initial trip to Kenya changed my life and my world view,” he said. “I’ve been fortunate to have a strong family. My experience at KA gave me another family, as well as my family at Edward Jones. The people associated with Global Connections have become my family, too, and it’s been enriching to see the world from another perspective and to befriend people from other cultures.”

KA Brother Brings Man’s Two Best Friends Together by Rick Moore

Left: Bark4Beer retractable dog collar bottle opener in action; right: Bark4Beer co-founder John Hornbeak selling his dog collars at the San Diego International Beer Festival.

Man’s proverbial best friend, as we all know, is his dog. And some guys’ best friend, for better or worse, is their beer. Now a KA brother has found a way to capitalize on an unlikely relationship that he realized those two can have with one another. John Hornbeak, (AΠ-Stanford ’00), is the co-founder of a company called Bark4Beer, whose product is a dog collar with a retractable bottle opener on it. So when a gentleman needs a beer, all he has to do is call Fido, and he doesn’t have to leave the comfort of the chair from which he’s watching the football game, catching some rays, or whatever.

The collar itself is made from a highstrength nylon that Hornbeak said will hold up under repeated use, although it’s hard to say how many people will actually use it a lot compared to the number that will simply buy it as a novelty or gag gift. The sale price online is $19.95, with a $5.00 fee for shipping.

Hornbeak graduated from Stanford in 2003 with a B.S. in management science and engineering, and then graduated from the MBA program at Oxford in the United Kingdom. He said that he had to write a business plan for his MBA thesis, and that he used the Bark4Beer model, which was soundly trashed.

Hornbeak said that, without having been a KA brother, he may not have had the drive and savvy to bring his business idea to life. “Being in KA instilled in me the dedication to work for a goal I really believed in,” he said. “I’ve worked really hard at this, and I know that’s part of who I am because of the people I was around, the examples and mentors I had to observe and follow.”

“My advisor at Oxford, to coin a British term, said the idea was ‘rubbish,’ and that ‘I’d never sell one.’ I actually took second place in the business plan competition, which seems kind of ridiculous,” he said, laughing.

“Some other guys and I were joking about the idea one day, you know, the way people talk about all kinds of things that never actually get done,” Hornbeak said. “So we (he and an unnamed partner) spent about a year and a half developing it.”

“We actually started this in November of ’09, just before ‘Black Friday,’ and we sold over 1,000 units the first month,” he said. “So we figure this year we’ll do well at Christmas again.” Hornbeak said he didn’t have sales figures readily available, but he has sold “in the thousands” overall.

KA Trio Excels in Commercial Brokerage Thomas Melody (O-Clemson ’80), younger brother Michael Melody (O-Clemson ’82), and old college buddy Thomas Fish (O-Clemson ’82), have found themselves in high demand as major producers in the commercial property brokerage business, even in lean times. So much in demand that all three were recently hired away from their positions at CB Richard Ellis Group Inc., one of the world’s largest commercial real estate services firms, by rival company Jones Lang LaSalle Inc., a commercial property broker that earned more than $200 million in 2009 selling real estate and arranging financing for major real estate transactions. The three KA brothers grew up in Houston, and attended the University of Texas at Austin, where they were all active in KA as members of Omicron Chapter. The trio will be in charge of Jones Lang LaSalle Inc.’s real estate banking business and assume executive leadership roles within the company.

Top Trojan golfers honored Beta Sigma Alums inducted into Southern California Golf Association (SCGA) Hall of Fame by Bob Tarlton

Golf legends Al Geiberger (ΒΣ-Southern California ’58) and Dave Stockton (ΒΣSouthern California ’61) were inducted into the SCGA Hall of Fame on October 19, 2010. The duo, along with SCGA and The Los Angeles Country Club founder Joseph Sartori, were honored as some of the region’s most significant names in golf. Sartori was inducted posthumously, while Geiberger and Stockton, along with fellow KA brothers, friends and family, were present at the ceremony held at the Universal Sheraton Hotel. The SCGA Hall of Fame was begun in 2007 to recognize and honor those people who have shaped the game of golf in Southern California. Geiberger, 73, of Palm Desert, is known as “Mr. 59” for being the first player to shoot that score during a PGA Tour-sanctioned event. His amateur career, however, foreshadowed what his professional success would eventually be. Geiberger is a two-time winner of the SCGA Amateur Championship (1956 and 1959), both of which he captured as a player on University of Southern California's golf team. He turned pro soon after graduation, after winning 11 straight championships as an amateur, and would go on to win 11 times on the PGA Tour, including the 1966 PGA Championship. He was also a member of the 1967 and 1975 Ryder Cup teams.

It was during the second round of the 1977 Danny Thomas Memphis Classic at Colonial Country Club, however, that he

would do what had yet to be done: collect six pars, 11 birdies and one eagle to shoot a 13-under-par 59. As coincidence might have it, Stockton was keeping his score that day. “Dave and I are opposites, but we’re also a pair,” Geiberger said with a laugh. “Being inducted into this Hall of Fame is an honor, and brings back some great memories. It’s perfect,” he said. Stockton, 68, born and raised in Southern California and currently residing in Redlands, is the son of a golf pro— having grown up on the course, he was groomed for a career in the game. He followed Geiberger on the USC golf team, winning the Pacific-8 Championship like his father and turning professional in 1964. It began a whirlwind PGA Tour career of 10 wins, beginning in 1967 with the Colonial National Invitation and three years later, his first of two PGA Championships (1970 and 1976). He played on two Ryder Cup teams—1971 and 1977—and was the captain of the 1991 U.S. squad. The same year Stockton guided the U.S. Ryder Cup team to victory at Kiawah Island, he joined the Champions Tour and would go on to win 14 times, including three senior majors: the 1992 and 1994 Senior Players Championships, and the


1996 U.S. Senior Open. During his career, Stockton never lost sight of the importance of interacting with golfers of all skill levels, and has been known since the 1970s as the “King of Corporate Outings” thanks to participating in dozens of corporate and motivational days per year. Stockton’s putting prowess has created a successful and in-demand business of corporate outings, instructional videos and motivational speaking, but has equally helped him emerge as golf’s short-game guru. Among other players, Stockton has worked as Phil Mickelson’s putting coach, credited in part to snapping Mickelson’s two-year putting slump in 2009 to help him win the Tour Championship. “This is really special and it’s made me introspective into what my career has really been about,” Stockton said. “The memories of friends and family are wonderful…the special part is being inducted with Al.” The collection of memorabilia on display at the induction ceremony included three replica Wanamaker trophies, Stockton’s Ryder Cup souvenirs and Geiberger’s “59” golf clubs.

After health issues sidelined Geiberger in 1978, he returned to the PGA Tour in 1982 and was awarded the Golf Writers Association of America’s Ben Hogan Award for remaining active in golf despite a physical handicap. He would later win another 10 times while on the Champions Tour, finishing his career with 29 professional victories.

Dear brothers and friends, Having just completed an outstanding 2009-2010 fiscal year on June 30, we have a lot to celebrate. Our successes can be measured both in the classroom and in the active chapters. The mission of the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF), “to raise funds for the benefit of the Order,” is a simple statement yet it profoundly affects our Order each year. KA’s founders more than 145 years ago had the vision that KA should provide a path for life for each young man who enters into our chapters and into the august mysteries of our brotherhood. After having gone through an outstanding decade of success to begin the twenty first century, KA now looks to its future with this same vision in mind. Over the past ten years, Kappa Alpha Order has transformed itself into one of the leading fraternities in the country. We have achieved this recognition based on the level of leadership education and values-based training that we offer to our undergraduate brothers, as well as our renewed focus on academics. These programs and opportunities for our undergraduates are the result of the outstanding efforts of our Kappa Alpha Order staff and volunteers, and the generosity of our alumni and friends. In ten short years, the KAOEF has grown from $6 million to $10 million in net assets. Over the years, thousands of our undergraduate’s lives have been touched by the KA experience, but by far, more have felt our involvement over the past decade. The KAOEF, because of your generosity, has had a direct impact. Kappa Alpha Order and KAOEF have many accomplishments to be proud of from the 2009-2010 year. First, our active chapters posted a high 2.85 overall Spring GPA. The foundation awarded 91 scholarships totaling $113,475 to assist recipients with their educational pursuits. The Board of Trustees again granted $150,000 in educational and leadership training support to Kappa Alpha that assisted in: (1) educating 126 chapter presidents at the Number I’s

Leadership Institute (NLI); (2) training 2,000 undergraduate men at our enhanced Province Councils; (3) assisting (113) rising chapter leaders at the Emerging Leaders Academy, and (4) providing programming to 43 Crusade Commanders at The RoundTable. Additionally, five interns experienced an eight-week summer internship in Washington, D.C. for the sixth year in a row as part of the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship program. All of these wonderful leadership and educational opportunities were provided to the men of KA at little or no cost thanks to donations from alumni and friends and we can’t say thank you enough! The Honoring Our Past – Securing Our Future: the Campaign for Every KA which concluded on July 3, 2009 sought to create permanent endowments for many of the leadership and educational opportunities provided to our undergraduates like NLI, enhanced Province Councils, The Crusade, and the Washington internship program. The campaign increased our scholarship endowment by over $1 million and we exceeded our $10 million goal by an additional $1 million. This campaign truly honored KA’s past and ultimately will secure its future for the next 100 years. As a supporter of the KAOEF, you share in the reward of ensuring that future generations of young men will enjoy the same wonderful experiences and lifelong friendships that remain at the forefront of the KA experience. Again, thank you so much for your continued generosity and I hope you enjoy this 2009-2010 Annual Report. Fraternally yours,

Dear brothers and friends, As a supporter of Kappa Alpha Order, you should take great pride in knowing that the 1865 Trust continues to grow in a way that I was convinced it would. For the second year in a row, the Trust received over $1.4 million in new estate gift pledges from alumni, and was recognized as the best planned giving society in the fraternal world by the North American Interfraternity Conference Foundation. In my years as Chairman of the 1865 Trust, I cannot remember a more exciting time; or a time when I have been more proud of our many accomplishments. As you may or may not know, the 1865 Trust recognizes the generosity and foresight of those who choose to embrace the vision of KA’s future by making a meaningful planned gift to the KAOEF. Their entrance into the ranks of the 1865 Trust bears powerful testimony to the charitable expressions of their values, ideals, and commitment to Kappa Alpha Order’s future. Membership in the 1865 Trust recognizes those who have made provisions for a planned gift of $10,000 or more to the KAOEF. Most of our alumni in the 1865 Trust will fulfill their gift through one of the most common, and perhaps easiest, ways of making a planned gift, by naming the KAOEF in their wills or as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or an IRA. As the 1865 Trust grows in membership, I feel that it becomes ever more important that our members are recognized for making Kappa Alpha Order their lifelong commitment. Therefore, all 1865 Trust members will be recognized in KA publications, and recognized at KA events such as Province Councils, Courts of Honor, and the 2011 Convention in Phoenix, Arizona. Of course, if you would like to request anonymity for your commitment, please let us know.

In closing, I would be delighted if you would consider the 1865 Trust. I cannot emphasize more strongly how important it is that we are all committed. If you have any questions about the 1865 Trust, or if you wish to join the ranks of 138 other KA brothers who have already become members, please contact Erik Showalter, Director of Development, at the National Administrative Office, either by phone, (540) 463-1865, or by e-mail, Thank you for your continued support of the Order, and for making Kappa Alpha Order a lifelong commitment. My regards and very best wishes. Fraternally yours,

Pioneering a new path: Inaugural year for Foundation Chapters off to a fast start The Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF) has launched a new way to raise money and build affinity that is unique to the fraternal world. Once again, our foundation is on the leading edge of ideas and innovation. We’re very excited about this new program as it has enormous ramifications for the future of our giving and what it looks like. Here’s how we got it started… In January at the Number I’s Leadership Institute (NLI), sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF), the foundation staff addressed all newly elected Number I’s. This year the KAOEF’s message was a call to action. Each Number I was asked if they were willing to make a $1 donation to the KAOEF as a token for all of the training and educational programming they had received during their weekend in Asheboro, North Carolina. Each Number I readily agreed. The staff then asked if each chapter president would solicit every brother in their respective chapter for a $1 contribution to the KAOEF as well. Once again the room was unanimous with its support of the idea. Three days following NLI, the Foundation followed up with chapter presidents via email and reminded them to solicit each

chapter brother for a $1 contribution. If the entire chapter was in agreement to do so, the Number I was to simply reply with a “YES.” Those participating chapters would then be designated by the KAOEF as a “Foundation Chapter” for 2010. The Foundation is proud to announce that in its maiden voyage, the “Foundation Chapter” program captured 2,824 undergraduate donors, with 55 of our 128 active chapters participating at 100 percent. Each contribution goes towards continuing the award winning KAOEF sponsored educational programming that over 40 percent of our undergraduates receive and enjoy year after year. The KAOEF would like to personally thank each and every undergraduate member who supported us in this worthy cause. Please see the list of all undergraduate chapters who pioneered with us in this inaugural initiative and are now designated as Foundation Chapters for 2010 by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

The KAOEF Scholarship Program continues to be a primary focus each and every year, and it remains an important benefit to the members of Kappa Alpha Order. The overall goal of the KAOEF scholarship program is to improve the overall lives of numerous undergraduate and graduate students by providing academic support to aid their educational pursuits. In many cases, the support our young men receive through these academic, merit, and needs based scholarships serves an inspiration for academic excellence and oftentimes means the difference between attending undergraduate or graduate school or not. KAOEF donors can rest assured that the hundreds of thousands of dollars that have been awarded throughout the years have improved the lives of hundreds of students across the nation.

Any member or friend of KA may establish a chapter endowment fund (CEF) for educational purposes according to the following guidelines: · With an initial minimum gift of $1,000 or more, friends of KA, undergraduate or alumni members of a chapter may request that the KAOEF establish an endowment fund for an active chapter. The $1,000 initial gift may be a single gift or the total of a number of gifts provided at one time. · A percentage of each gift donated into the fund will be paid to the KAOEF for administrative expenses such as: · Document preparation fees · Draft of endowment agreement and associated fees · Annual accounting and auditing fees · Account distribution process and associated fees · The chart below shows the breakdown of percentages based on endowment level of the CEF: Fund Total

% of each gift to Principal of Fund

$0 - $25,000 $25,000 - $50,00 $50,000 - $100,000 $100,000 +

% of each gift to KAOEF Expenses

92% 95% 97% 99%

8% 5% 3% 1%

From the date of the initial gift(s), the CEF has five (5) years to reach the Boardapproved minimum endowment level of $25,000. When that level has been sustained for a full fiscal year (July 1 – June 30), distributions will be made from the return on the principle of the account. Should the minimum endowment level not be reached within five (5) years, or if no contributions are received for a period of five (5) years, the funds will revert to the KAOEF’s unrestricted funds to be disbursed at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.

Distribution Policies In keeping with the KAOEF’s mission and obligations as a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization, distributions made from each CEF must satisfy the Internal Revenue Service Code and may be used only for educational purposes. When endowed ($25,000), the return generated by the account will be used to benefit the local chapter and/or active members by providing distributions for purposes in accordance with IRS regulations. Subject to change, distributions may be used for: • Purchase of chapter computer equipment, software and/or internet wiring • Resident advisor lodging/stipend • Established educational areas in chapter facilities • Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) travel expenses • Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) registration fees • Province Council travel expenses and registration fees • Scholarships (tuition payments) and academic expenses (books, study aids) Accounts are managed according to the provisions of the KAOEF’s “Endowment & Spending Policy.” Essentially, once the CEF has reached the minimum $25,000 endowment level, annual distributions (within a fiscal year) will be based upon five percent (5%) of the account balance over a three-year moving average of the fund, rounded to the next lowest $25 increment. Each CEF will be assessed an annual maintenance fee of one percent (1%) of the balance of the fund for ongoing accounting and administration. If distribution from a CEF is in the form of academic scholarships, recipients will be selected annually by the Scholarship Committee of the Foundation based upon applications received.

An experience like no other in D.C. In addition to interning in the private or public sectors for two months, the five interns are included in special events and given tours of places including the United States Capitol, the White House, and the Senate Office Buildings. The interns have the opportunity to interact with influential members of congressional, legislative, and political staffs because these influential members are KAs that are willing to give of their time and resources. Each year’s program proves to be a well-rounded experience for all involved and this program punctuates our dedication to undergraduate growth and development. Each year’s class of men is selected by a committee from the KAOEF. Applications, available on the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation website, are completed and submitted by each interested undergraduate by January 14 each year. Following a review and scoring of the applications, phone interviews are conducted by the committee to select the final, five young men.


The E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program was designed to assist undergraduates in their effort to further their education and understanding of our country’s government, the private sector’s relationship with government, and to assist them with a once in a lifetime opportunity. It offers an unparalleled experience for undergraduate KAs and is an exciting program that gives deserving undergraduate students the chance to live and gain professional work experience in the Washington, D.C. area at no cost to the undergraduate. With this cost burden lifted, our undergraduates experience our nation’s capital to its fullest. Kappa Alpha Order has selected five very qualified students to intern in Washington D.C. each summer since 2004. Each student’s selection has been based on his leadership within his own chapter and his college community, his academic performance and his overall interest in governmental issues.

The annual donor societies represent gifts made from July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010. We are grateful to these loyal alumni and friends for their generous contributions.

The Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF), a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, was created in 1981 to promote the education of undergraduate and graduate students in academic improvement, leadership, alcohol and substance abuse prevention and other general educational areas. The KAOEF receives no government funding but provides a vehicle for tax-deductible contributions from alumni and friends to be made in support of KA. With these gifts, the KAOEF helps underwrite a number of educational programs to the benefit of the Order. For more information, contact: KAOEF 115 Liberty Hall Road P.O. Box 1865 Lexington, Virginia 24450 (540) 463-1865 - office (540) 463-2140 – fax

The new field staff house at Mulberry Hill is an accomplished goal of the recent KAOEF capital campaign and was dedicated in May.

Box 1865, Lexington VA 24450. Online donations can also be made through the KAOEF website ( Appreciated Securities A gift of your appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares is an ideal way to support the KAOEF. The educational programs of the Order will benefit from your support and you will receive a tax deduction for your contributions.

the spring 2010 semester with the highest GPA of all Greek organizations, and higher also than the all-men’s average. The men were also awarded the Risk Management Reduction Award and were victors of Greek Week. Brother Ian Miller was crowned Greek God during the spring semester and Brother James L. Bauer was crowned Mr. UAFS 2010. In the most current semester, the chapter was recognized with a first place designation in Academic Week. Rush was also a success with a 12-man pledge class, making the active men count 30 strong. The brothers also worked with the local chapters of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in their annual “Paint the Park Pink” event, and have continued to contribute to the community through the “Adopt-aHighway” program.

PROVISIONAL: Austin Peay State University New Chapter (Forester Province)

Georgia College Epsilon Nu (Hardeman Province) The new chapter at Georgia College consists of approved former initiates of Epsilon Nu, former new members who remained loyal to the Order and have since rejoined and “brand new” members who were recruited this fall. This totals 32 members who have committed to restoring Epsilon Nu to full active status. To start the process of being re-chartered in spring of 2011, the chapter has already held many rush events and had its induction ceremony on September 30. In the past year, members of the chapter have been heavily involved in the Student Government Association at Georgia College, with several members serving as officers. Many of the brothers are involved with the school’s bass fishing team; two brothers, Joshua Futch and Jared Kutil, competed in the National Guard FLW College Fishing tournament on Lake Chickamauga in Hixson, Tennessee and took second place out of about 40 teams, receiving a check for $2,500. During a Kappa Kappa Gamma golf philanthropy event, four of the men took first place. In Greek Week, the Order won third place while winning basketball for

University of Southern California Beta Sigma (Neal Province) The brothers of USC provisional chapter continue to excel academically. This past spring the chapter posted the 3rd highest GPA of all fraternities on campus with a 3.40 achieved! The chapter continues to work towards further recruitment and this spring will see an increase in support locally and nationally. Alumni leadership is working with the school to continue housing discussions for the future. This remains the primary focus for success at USC. The Order is committed to long-term success at the University of Southern California. We anticipate a petition for chartering to be submitted in early 2011. Southern Illinois University-Carbondale New Chapter (Frampton Province) The brothers at SIU have continued to fine-tune their chapter operations. With a 3.02 spring GPA and number one on campus in grades, the men are well on their way to becoming an award winning chapter. Recruitment has picked up greatly, a petition to be granted a charter is almost completed, and the fervor to be installed as the newest chapter in the order is exciting in Carbondale. The chapter sent many members to Emerging Leaders Academy this past summer, and plans to send the entire membership to province council this spring. Approval for chartering should come no later than in early 2011.

Kappa Alpha Order has been making great strides at APSU by becoming more visible on campus. From the beginning of the semester to the fraternity’s first formal rush, the chapter jumped from 12 members to 20 members in a six-week period. It has also been more active in campus activities as well, participating in the Mudbowl competition, the Austin Peay Leadership Series, and the organization and club fair. The chapter was also crowned intramural champions in the "B" Section of the AP Soccer League and had the pleasure of participating in its first set

of homecoming activities. Academically, they remain committed to exceptional results with this past spring’s GPA for the chapter totaling 3.27. While only organized for a few weeks, this GPA placed KA as the top fraternity on campus.

During the spring semester of 2010, the brothers of Alpha Omega held their first Convivium as well as their first Old South since returning to NC State. The 2010 fall semester saw a very successful rush, filled with great social events related to it. The chapter’s application for charter has been submitted and the brothers, forty members strong, are working hard to that end. Alumni support for the membership has been strong in the form of advising and support. If academic results increase then chartering should be around the corner in 2011.

The new chapter at Southern Methodist has a similar path of reintroduction into the campus and the great Kappa Alpha community. Initially eight former initiates, now numbering nine, along with a large handful of upperclassmen new members have formed the young SMU provisional chapter. Interest among freshmen to join KA has been extremely high, which should yield a formidable sized spring new member class. One factor to our success has been a values-based, dry approach to recruitment. The alumni advisory committee is chaired by former national staff member Randy Beard (BΛ – Southern Methodist ’57) and has initiates from Beta Lambda from the past many decades. Along with a chartering petition to be submitted this spring, we look for the chapter to succeed in initiation. Finally, the goal is to re-occupy the house on campus by fall 2011.

University of Houston Gamma Mu (Walsh Province)

University of Tennessee-Chattanooga New Chapter (Feller Province)

The Order is proud to announce the approval by the University of Houston and their local IFC for Kappa Alpha Order to restore our dormant Gamma Mu chapter. Efforts are underway for planning of timeline and calendar. Alumni from the chapter and/or other alumni near the university are encouraged to contact the national administrative office for interest in recruitment, advising, and housing. Staff will be on campus in the spring to recruit and establish a provisional chapter. Do you have an idea for a location for a new chapter? Know a strong student leader attending a school where a KA chapter doesn’t exist? Want to lead a long-term effort to restore your chapter? To discuss these and to inquire more about the chapters listed above, contact Jesse S. Lyons, Director of Chapter Development at

National staff and alumni are currently recruiting students at UTC to form our newest provisional chapter. Goodwill from campus, administration, and the general Greek community has been overwhelming. All signs point to a successful project

Editor’s Note: An on campus report can be submitted at any time the chapter has news to report. To submit an update with photographs, please email the editor at Email notices are also sent to the Chapter Historian prior to each issue of the magazine to solicit news prior to submission deadlines. If you are an alumnus and would like to see your chapter report their news, please contact the chapter directly to encourage their participation.

Beta Commission leads the charge Brothers step up to close fundraising gap

Since 1866 Kappa Alpha Order has celebrated the success of one of its greatest partnerships, the Beta Commission at Virginia Military Institute (Beta Chapter through 1885). During their years at VMI, our initiated brothers exemplified the ideals of Kappa Alpha through their love of learning, commitment to excellence, leadership, and sense of public service. Upon graduation, they were selected by their peers to become one of “Marshall’s Men.” Last year, Kappa Alpha Order commemorated the 50th anniversary of General of the Army George C. Marshall’s death. General Marshall is one of Beta Commission’s most influential and distinguished brothers. The commemoration not only celebrated the life and achievements of General Marshall, but also recognized the Commission’s role in continuing to exemplify the ideals of the Order. As you know, this past year has been difficult for many organizations across

In these challenging times, it would have been easy for the Order to discontinue its leadership education and values-based training opportunities, but we know that these types of programs are more essential today than at any other time. Therefore, Kappa Alpha Order has remained aggressive in our approach to educational opportunities. When KA men are faced with adversity, the idea of

Our Beta Commission brothers once again answered the call to duty without hesitation, and as a result the KAOEF was able to meet our fundraising objectives once again. With the spring rapidly approaching, our 2011 Beta Commission initiates will be able to see firsthand the level of support their alumni show the Order, and will understand why they were selected to carry on the KA legacy.

From the Archives

The Kappa Alpha Vault by Michael Wilson, Director of Fraternity Services

The men who helped shape the pages of the Order’s history knew the importance of preserving it. Since our organization’s inception, our leaders and members have collected and compiled artifacts that tell the stories of our struggles, development, growth and accomplishments. Kappa Alpha’s archives are filled with accounts of the members who have succeeded on campus and beyond. In 2004, when the National Administrative Office moved to Mulberry Hill, there was not adequate space to house the correspondence, minutes, photographs, recordings, Kappa Alpha Journals and other items that make up the archives. Many of these items were temporarily stored in a secured room at the Rockbridge Area Free Clinic across town from Kappa Alpha’s new home. This short term solution became just that when the expansion of the clinic’s services included converting the remaining space into offices and exam rooms. Much like the grand plan that landed KA in its proper home following the threat of eminent domain by Rockbridge County, the archives would move at exactly the right time. When the news came that the space would no longer be available, the plans for building a home for the field staff were already under way. The now completed Guest House at Mulberry Hill, which is home to the associate directors, includes a 648 square foot vault in the basement. Protected by separate security, climate control and fire suppression systems, the vault is the perfect place to preserve the Order’s archives...especially behind its 988 pound door made of hardened steel. E. Kent McMichael (Β-VMI ’95), who has cared for the archives since joining the national administrative staff in 2001, served as the “clerk of the works” for the project completed early this past spring. Brother McMichael used his experience as the former Director of Museum for the George

Our Legacy

Family Ties Brothers’ Bonds Strengthen Through KA by Wendy Lovell

The University of Tulsa isn’t too far from the home Tim Dixon grew up in, but to his younger siblings, it seemed like he was far away when he went to college. Ironically, going to college has brought Tim and two of his younger brothers closer together. TU has been a good fit for Dixon (Μ-Tulsa ’06), who will graduate in December with a degree in applied mathematics. The oldest of five children, Dixon was drawn to the university because of its small class sizes, strong academic reputation, close-knit community and the people he met when visiting the campus. He found the Mu Chapter of Kappa Alpha appealing for many of the same reasons. “I was really drawn to KA by the values and the attitude of the guys who were recruiting me,” said Dixon. “Not only did they explain to me the values that KA looked for in potential members, but they also displayed those values in their actions. Many of the members were also very involved on campus, and I saw that as an opportunity to get myself involved in different organizations.” Dixon has been heavily involved in the chapter. Currently he’s Number IX, and he served two terms as Number I. He’s also participated in Convention, Province Councils, Stewards of the Order and the Crusade RoundTable.

Dixon brothers (from L to R) Phillip, Tim, Chris

was pretty cool, too. Having my younger brother as a new member now makes me stay involved with the pledge class and younger guys.”  Chris Dixon has served as Number V, and has chaired its intramural and brotherhood committees. And he was just elected chapter president, following in older brother Tim’s footsteps. He will graduate next May with a degree in management information systems. “My brothers and I are all quite different, but we all share the ideals that KA conveys, which is why we are all so involved,” said Chris Dixon. “Tim and I both play intramurals, most notably doubles tennis, and we are both in the Future Alumni Council as well as Interfraternity Council. We all enjoy TU athletics; my brothers go to all the games, and I am the TU mascot, so I get to cheer from the field.”

“Tim was president when I joined, which made me want to take an active role in the house,” said Chris Dixon. “Being initiated by my brother

Chris Dixon added that sharing membership with his siblings will likely keep them all involved with the Order long after graduation. He looks forward


While Phillip Dixon is just getting acclimated to college life and the Order, he realizes he is fortunate to share his college and fraternity experience with his brothers. “Even though we’ve had our fair share of fighting and such, my brothers and I have been pretty close, and I’ve always looked up to them,” said Phillip Dixon. “TU isn’t too far from our house, but as my brothers headed off to college, the relationship between us became more distant. Now that I’m here at TU, I have already seen our brotherhood begin to take on a more mature form—they’re still my brothers, but now they are also my role models for being a man.”

His brothers Chris (Μ-Tulsa ’08) and Phillip chose to attend the small, private university, as well. Going to school together has strengthened the Dixons’ relationships, and for Dixon, the rewards of membership in the Order were made sweeter when Chris Dixon joined the Order. Now Phillip Dixon has pledged KA and will be the third Dixon to be initiated at Tulsa.

to returning to TU for alumni events and continuing the Kappa Alpha legacy in their future families.

Remembering the Reason

Once a KA Rose, always... Chattanooga Alumni Chapter serves KA widows by Matt Bonner

“These are very dear women who have been widowed for five, ten, even 15 years and yet they still come to Convivum...KA means a lot to them,” says Lewis who has been president of the chapter since 2007. “It’s much better to expend these chapter funds for something good like this, than to save it for a rainy day,” he adds. Ruth Wells, whose husband MG Thomas G. Wells, Jr. (U.S. Reserves) (BT-Mississippi ’36) has been gone for 15 years, has stayed connected to the chapter. “It means a lot...I really think they do too much for us,” she says. “It is mighty nice.” Wells, 92, enjoys attending Convivium each year.

Ruth Wells, widow of MG Thomas Graham Wells, Jr. (Ret US Reserves) (BT-Mississippi State ’36)

Since 2002, the brothers of the Chattanooga Alumni Chapter in Tennessee have been doing something unique to serve the widows of KA brothers. On Valentines Day each year, every widow of a brother from the alumni chapter receives a special gift from the chapter, normally in the form of flowers, cards, candy, or gift certificates.

“We have not heard of anyone else doing this,” says Wilson. “But we sure think it’s a good practice for other chapters to implement and we hope they will after reading this story.” The Chattanooga Alumni Chapter, consisting of around 40 brothers, has been active for years, meeting three times annually, including Convivium. “What makes this chapter unique is that they are

“The ladies are so appreciative and are elated over our gesture to them,” says Bill Wilson (AB-Alabama ’61), who is normally the one who makes the special delivery. Wilson has served the chapter for 20 years, first as president and currently as treasurer. Collaborating with brothers Brandon Lewis (ΔΦ-Jacksonville State ’99) and Argil Wheelock (ΔΔ-East Tennessee State ’66) who came up with the idea, the chapter treats each “KA Rose” every year once they become widowed. Six ladies were visited this past year. The ladies also attend the chapter’s annual Convivium celebration. Chattanooga Alumni Chapter

one of the most active alumni chapters that doesn’t have a local active chapter,” says Former Knight Commander and current Foundation Development Director Ben Satcher (ΔΟ-Clemson ’79). That of course is changing with the provisional chapter now in the works at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga. “This upcoming Convivium will be the first to have undergrads in nearly 60 years,” says Lewis. The alumni chapter was originally chartered in 1916 and later re-chartered in 1953 by Dr. Harry Stone (AY-Mississippi ‘39), who led the chapter for years. Stone was the brother of Doug Stone (AY-Mississippi ‘41), former Irwin Province Commander and longtime member of the Executive Council serving from 1963-1989. To contact the chapter, please call President Brandon Lewis, (423)-235-1382.
