Chapter of the year: Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity earns regional honor
Kansas State University's chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi is the best in the Midwest. The fraternity has received the 2012-2013 Midwest Provincial Chapter of the Year.
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. was founded at the University of Indiana in 1911 and is dedicated to the principles of achievement through a truly domestic fraternity. The Provincial Chapter of the Year award is the highest honor Kappa Alpha Psi gives to a chapter in its Midwest province, which includes Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska and part of Arkansas. The chapter is now eligible to compete for Kappa Alpha Psi's National Chapter of the Year award, which is awarded in August.
The fraternity has participated in many service events on the Kansas State University campus and in the Manhattan community throughout the year, which helped to earn the Provincial Chapter the Year honor. Members have hosted study sessions and school supply and toy drives, participated in community cleanups and provided mentoring at the Douglass Community Center and the Manhattan Boys and Girls Club, among other activities.
