Kappa Sigma 3 T hroughout 2015, the Beta-Chi Chapter has continued to exemplify the four pillars by which we stand: scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service. Every year, we make it our mission to set the bar higher and we continue to thrive on campus and within our brotherhood. Record-Setting Semester for Recruitment This has been one of the strongest recruitment years our Chapter has seen. In the spring, we initiated a record high 10 new members into our brotherhood. Through the continued diligence of Recruitment Chairman Austin Lohr '13, we formally welcomed 34 young men, making the fall 2015 class the largest our Chapter has seen. We hope to continue our strong recruitment efforts as we start to prepare for the spring 2016 class. Beta-Chi Leadership Shines The Brothers of Beta-Chi continue to emerge as leaders on campus. Currently, 25% of our members hold positions on the executive boards of campus organizations. This includes five presidents, three vice presidents, and three team leads. In September, we dedicated a lot of time and effort for the 53rd annual Greek Week competition. With a second-place finish, this year marks the fifth consecutive year that we've placed in the top two for Greek Week. Academics Continue to Rise Scholarship is yet another way Beta-Chi continues to excel on campus. Our Chapter earned a GPA of 3.087 for the spring semester. This puts our Chapter above the all-male, all- Greek, and all-student GPAs, and also marks the seventh consecutive semester we've been above the all-men's GPA. Our new members received a GPA of 3.073, which ranks among the top. Beta-Chi Stands Out at Conclave Nationally, Beta-Chi continues to rank among the top chapters in the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. This summer at the 70th biennial Grand Conclave, Beta-Chi received the Founders' Award for Chapter Excellence for the fifth consecutive year. We also brought home awards for outstanding single community service event, outstanding pledge education program, and excellence in scholarship. I am extremely pleased with the direction this Chapter continues to travel. Year after year we foster an environment of diligence and brotherhood. The Beta-Chi Chapter would not continue to grow and become the pride of the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus without the ongoing support from our dedicated alumni. Thank you, and we look forward to many more years of success. A.E.K.∆.B., Kevin Flaker '11 Grand Master (314) 856-8308 kmfcfb@mst.edu Will Annunziata Wildwood, Mo. Conor Buckley* Chesterfield, Mo.
