Transcript 272 a Chivalrous Conduct and the Pursuit of Excellence IC .appa Alpha order was founded at Washington College (now Washington and Lee) on December 21, 1865, by four young men who sought to emulate the school's president, Gen. Robert E. Lee, for in Lee they saw the quali- ties of the true gentleman. Their guiding principles were respect for God and women, chivalrous conduct and the pursuit of excellence. The Kappa Alpha Order had 127 active chapters and over 100,000 initiates throughout the country. The Gamma Mu chapter of K^ppa Alpha Order was established at UH in 1956. The chapter was highly regarded throughout the University and community for its philanthropy. KA was actively involved in Greek events, intramural sports and other greek TEXAS TWO-STEP...Kappa Alpha/Sigma Nu Stampede gave everyone a chance to put on their boots and scoot the night away.

KA's were also known for solid academic performance, with several brothers in the Honors Program. Chapter policies included mandatory study hall for pledges, as well as for actives who neglect their scholarship. Nationally, the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation awarded more than $55,000 in scholarships annually, the second highest total among fraternities. KA's excellence extended to community service through campus Blood Drives and our Alumni Golf Tournament to benefit MDA. Our blood drives earned KA a Lifegiver Award for 1991 from the Blood Center, We were one of only 18 groups honored in the area. Other brothers were volunteer tutors at the YMCA near campus. Chapter members were campus leaders active in ROTC, honorary societies and student government. Al though Kappa Alpha Order was outstanding in many areas, we were most proud of the excellent brotherhood among members. tKA stressed tight friendship between all brothers. Chapter meals, cookouts, and retreats were but a few of the events designed to foster brotherhood. KA's were revered as the gentlemen of the fraternity world, and our conduct set us apart from other organizations. -Courtesy of Kappa Alpha Order Kappa Alpha Order: Top to bottom (left to right); Craig "Possum" Gerberdina, Larry Falli, Mark Greer, Buster Bullock, Derek Adams, Chris Greer, Ryan Williams, Joseph Hebert, Shane DoBusk, Slater Chapa, Roland Rodriguez, Dan Beyer, Chris Courtney, Justin Knknht, Lee Kavanaugh, Carlos Vauero.
