Volunteer of the Year.
“The Gamma-Rho Chapter of Kappa Sigma means so much to me in too
many different ways to list them all here. I think the most important meaning
that comes to mind when I think about our beloved fraternity and chapter is
loyalty. I am a lifetime Tucson resident (except for 19 months of my life). I
went to one elementary school, one middle school, one high school, one
university, and belong to one Greek Fraternity.
“I am happy to say that I have lifelong friends that were first introduced to
me as Brothers. I know that if they needed anything and I had the ability to
assist, I would and if any of my brother’s needed any assistance from me, I
will of course be there if I am able. This is not a bond that develops easily
for everyone, but by the grace of a higher power, we have been blessed with
this Fraternity, this Chapter, and each other to guide us, help us grow, and be
of service to one another when called.”
