(July 27, 2017) McNeese State University’s Theta Rho chapter of Kappa Sigma fraternity was recently presented with four national awards at the 71st Biennial Grand Conclave in Las Vegas, Nev.
The McNeese fraternity received the coveted Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence and the Founders’ Circle Award – two awards that are only given to a small handful of chapters around the country each year.

The Founders’ Circle Award is the highest award given to chapters based on the areas of fellowship, leadership, scholarship and service, while the Founders’ Award is the benchmark award in Kappa Sigma-recognizing outstanding chapter management, achievement and program development.

The chapter also received the 100% Ritual Proficiency and Military Heroes Campaign Champion awards. Last year, Theta Rho raised the sixth largest amount of money for Kappa Sigma’s national philanthropy, Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign, according to Austin Pottorff, Kappa Sigma president.
