UA Little Rock’s Theta-Eta chapter of Kappa Sigma raised $1,186 for student scholarships during its annual Stephen Alonzo Jackson Weekend of Giving March 1-3. This was the highest amount raised by any chapter in the Arkansas district.
During the weekend of giving, former chapter president Chris Stephens took on the role of “ambassador” to help drive donations from both members and supporters throughout the nation via email and social media.
“This is the second year in a row that I have personally had the opportunity to work as an ambassador on the SAJ Weekend of Giving,” said Stephens. “It is inspiring for me to see so many dedicated brothers donate to this cause, even when they are 30, 40, sometimes even 50 years removed from their time as an undergraduate in our chapter. It truly goes to show that our Brotherhood is not for a day, nor an hour, nor a college term only, but for life.”
Nationally, Kappa Sigma raised a record $375,000 from more than 11,000 donations, up from last year’s $312,000.
All funds raised during the weekend of giving will be allocated to the donor’s scholarship fund of choice. For more information about Kappa Sigma at UA Little Rock, visit the organization’s Facebook page.
