Celebrating Achievements in Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship, and Service

Whether our undergrads are in Jamaica rebuilding communities or earning scholarships from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, one thing is for sure: We have some outstanding undergraduate members we can be proud to share a common bond with.

This year, they’ve excelled not only in the classroom, but in their service to others.

FELLOWSHIP

Kick the Stigma event

Planning Fresh Activities to Attract New Recruits and to Strengthen Alumni Relations
The chapter hosted an array of activities to strengthen relations for potential members and alumni brothers, including:

  • Inviting potential new members to dirt track racing, a par 3 golf outing, laser tag, and a trivia night for recruitment events
  • Holding regular events for alumni, including a poker night, the alumni baseball tournament, and football tailgates

 

LEADERSHIP

SCHOLARSHIP

Kappa Sig Brother Honored by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation

Brother Cameron McMillan ’17 was honored this past November with a $10,000 allocation from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.

An aerospace-engineering student, McMillan received the scholarship from Georgia Tech grad and former astronaut Jan Davis. Davis made three trips to space during her career.

Only 40 students around the country receive the scholarship; the $10,000 prize is the highest the ASF offers.

“Recipients of this award must have demonstrated dedication to research, and to being well-rounded members of their community,” Davis said at the ceremony.

Steven Johnston, Alexander Norwood, and Alex Thompkins all received a financial award from the House Corporation’s Alpha Tau chapter of Kappa Sigma Scholarship Fund for the 2016-17 academic year.
