WKAA President’s Message & Update


The message below was for Fall, 2017.

Many exciting changes are taking place and I will be providing an update shortly. For now, I am leaving the Fall 2017 message intact.



For those of you not familiar, Alumni of Kappa Alpha Order’s Delta Nu Chapter at Murray State University have two entities representing our interests:  

  • The West Kentucky Alumni Association – which is the direct link between alumni and Kappa Alpha Order.
  • The Delta Nu Housing Corporation which controls the assets from the sale of the house formerly located at 505 N. 16th street.

Brother Sandy Fitzgerald is the President of the Housing Corporation, and I was  elected in October via the KA Railroad, (the concept of which may bring back fond memories for some of you)  as the President of the West Kentucky Alumni Association, along with the assistance of Brothers Stewart Young as social chairman/vice president/secretary (did I hear that train coming around again?) and Brother Jerry Morris as treasurer, rounding out the 2017 KA choo-choo.

We are currently updating this website,  and as we agreed at the annual meeting of the WKAA in October, we are beginning the process to explore the possibilities of the Delta Nu Housing Corporation funding the rental of a fraternity house in Murray for the re-chartering of the Delta Nu Chapter. The establishment of a new colony at Murray will require the approval and  support of our Order in Lexington, Virginia, and the coordinated support of our Alumni is essential to the mission.

The first step in our approach is to re-establish our involvement with KAO National. Brothers Sandy Fitzgerald and Dennis Arndt have volunteered to spearhead this part of our mission, and have been credentialed to represent Delta Nu at the 77th Annual Convention this August in St. Louis, MO.

If anyone else would like to be a part of our effort, please contact me directly-harris(at)forcefieldhurricane.com.

Meanwhile, it’s not too early to make plans for what will be a different kind of Homecoming 2017. Check out the details here on the website.

There is much, much more to come,

Best regards,
