Kappa Alpha Sigma Chapter History

The graduate chapter of Kappa Alpha Sigma was chartered on December 12, 1987 to serve the Dekalb county area. The chapter is comprised of versatile and diverse brothers who have come together for the common goals of the chapter and fraternity: Brotherhood, Scholarship and Service. The charter members include: Brother John Day, Brother Matthew Holmes, Jr., Brother Albert H. Judge Jr., Brother Valentino E. Clendenon and Brother Dale. L. Burgess.

Brother John Day has also founded the undergraduate chapters of Pi Alpha (Georgia State) and Rho Alpha (Devry University). As a chapter, Kappa Alpha Sigma has chartered the undergraduate chapters of Alpha Beta Theta (Southern Poly Tech),  Alpha Beta Tau (Kennesaw State University) and Gamma Beta Gamma (Emory University).

During the mid 90’s, the chapter went through a new transition in which older brothers encouraged the younger ones in the chapter to step up and become leaders for Phi Beta Sigma. Since our undergraduate chapters were not active at that time, younger men were still granted the opportunity to see the Light of Sigma at a collegiate age, in addition to recent college graduates. The growth and stability of the chapter through rough and turbulent times is due to the accomplishments of Brother Eli Deleston and Brother Carlos Williams II.

Moving into Sigma’s second century, Kappa Alpha Sigma Chapter is focused on its brotherhood. The Chapter made a concerted effort to be the chapter at the forefront of strengthening the bonds of Sigma in the Atlanta area. By attending fellow Sigma alumni chapter meetings and extending our hand in unifying our cause locally, Kappa Alpha Sigma chapter has garnered the respect and admiration of brothers and sorors alike. The future of Kappa Alpha Sigma is yet unwritten but it is continuously made by the brotherhood of this Mighty Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
