Boh’s Birthday Bash Announcement


Tomorrow would have been the 138th birthday of the Guiding Spirit of Kappa Kappa Psi, Bohumil Makovsky.  Help us celebrate the guidance and support that Boh provided to our founding fathers and the fraternity as a whole through his service as a band director, National Council member and member of the Board of Trustees by purchasing a Life Membership in his honor.

Melbern Nixon, past National President and former student of Boh’s recalls the influence Boh had on his students and in having higher goals, “… I think this is partly where Kappa Kappa Psi comes in.  As these members observed him morning after morning in band rehearsal, they began to grasp that these things, all put together, formed a philosophy, and that philosophy of Boh’s became Kappa Kappa Psi.  It is very evident in the initiation ceremony…That’s why people like A. Frank Martin, Scroggs, and others grasped Boh’s philosophies and put them together in the form of an organization.”  Show that you share a commitment to Boh’s philosophies by becoming a Life Member of Kappa Kappa Psi.

Happy Birthday Boh and AEA,
