Kappa Sigma is a fraternity with great pride and a tradition of excellence, and our many distinguished alumni have served to enhance this throughout the years. Beta-Chi, since its beginning in 1903, has seen many brothers rise to positions of great respect. Conceived as a way of honoring Kappa Sigma and Beta-Chi alumni for outstanding achievements, the Hall of Fame is an integral part of our tradition here at Beta-Chi. Inductees are among a select group of alumni distinguished for their career achievements, service to the community, and dedication to the fraternity. Congratulations to all who have earned this honor.

"Leadership skills are vital. As a member of the board for Generation Tech one of the things we value the most is leadership skills and critical thinking skills, and that is something that we have found most lacking in graduates today. I believe Kappa Sigma teaches those necessary skills."
‐ Jeff Melcher ’79, Beta Chi
