Initiation was held Saturday and the actives did a fantastic job with it. Congratulations to the 14 new Brothers, Jayvan Aycock, Cole Kassabian, Caleb Corliss, Alex Mejia, Alex Hill, Mason Lalonde, Jace Sims, Drew Welborn, Kenny Lomenzo, Brayden Johnson, Austen Taylor, Jose Carrizales, Jared Willis and Brandon Burns. Initiation was attended by all of the actives and approximately 8 alumni.

Of note – Brandon Burns was the last of three brothers who all initiated KA from Sam Houston and was attended by the whole KA family including Chandler who is an active and oldest brother Reagan (2017) and his father Gary (1983, Houston Baptist University)

Finally got their Badges

Congratulations to Wayne Walker (right) and Doug Shaw (left) who had been initiated in 1973, but due to a administrative snafu had never officially been listed as members of Kappa Alpha Order.
