Brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi:
90 years ago, William A. Scroggs and nine of his fellow band members founded Kappa Kappa Psi. These ten men saw a need and opportunity to enhance the experience of their fellow band members through musicianship, service and brotherhood. Today that opportunity still exists on your campus and chapter. On November 27, 1919 the foundation was laid for us to improve our bands and each other.
I see this 90th anniversary of our fraternity as an opportunity to celebrate, but more importantly as a challenge. The challenge is simple question: How can we keep Kappa Kappa Psi going for another 90 years? Simply band must be our focus. It is college band that makes our bond of brotherhood more unique than any other fraternity. We work so hard to put together the perfect musical performance and touch our audience with our music. Kappa Kappa Psi for 90 years now is and always will be a large part of contributing to that perfect performance of a college band. As long as we make college band and music our focus as Brothers, we will meet any challenge and grow stronger as Brothers and leaders!
Let us all pause and take a moment to celebrate our amazing accomplishment – 90 years of service to college bands. Thanks to all my fellow alumni and life members who have laid the groundwork for excellence. It is truly an honor to be selected to serve!
