We have a rich history, and we strive to continue to Achieve in the Kappa footsteps of those Great Kappa men who have served before us in the local community and in support of the 34th Grand Polemarch, Brother Rueben A.

The Founders of our great Fraternity were visionaries who sought to bring together like-minded men of culture, patriotism, and honor that had a commitment to serving the public’s interest while training for leadership. As we enter this second century of Kappa, training for leadership is essential to our organizations’ development and the San Diego Alumni Chapter Brothers of Kappa are doing just that.
