Earlier today an article in the Orlando Sun Times connected Kappa Kappa Psi Honorary Band Fraternity to the 2011 death of Florida A&M University drum major Robert Champion.
The National Council of Kappa Kappa Psi would like to reinforce that to the best of our knowledge from investigations at the time the event in question was not related to Kappa Kappa Psi.
Kappa Kappa Psi never condones this heinous act of hazing, or any other act of hazing. We will evaluate the statements made and move forward in manner consistent with our policies and procedures. Kappa Kappa Psi remains deeply saddened at the loss of Robert Champion, and our thoughts continue to be with his family, friends, and the Florida A&M community.
