KA150.org – The Celebration Starts Here

by Jesse S. Lyons (Delta Alpha – Western Carolina ’98), Assistant Executive Director for Advancement


Kappa Alpha Order is proud to launch our Sesquicentennial Celebration website. This specific-purpose site is designed to educate, engage, and entertain every KA and even the friends of our Order. Here’s some highlights about the site:

View the Official Sesquicentennial Video. Enjoy the drama explaining the genesis of the Order, fast-forwarding through the years, and culminating with the 150th anniversary logo.
*KA150 tip STRENGTHEN THE ORDER – use this video at recruitment, alumni events, or share online so every KA sees it.

Follow along with the Sesquicentennial Celebration & 76th Convention Countdown. Check back for more information, registration and hotel links, and updates on the schedule and special events.

Access the “Official Calendar” of all Regional & Local Celebrations, information about each, and how to register.
*KA150 tip RENEW OUR VOWS – Do you have an event annually? Is one coming up in 2015? Register your own Convivium, reunion, or other event as an “official” Sesquicentennial Local Event and be listed on the calendar. There are benefits if you meet the criteria.

Interact and follow along with the Official Historical Timeline of the Order. From the arrival of James Ward Wood to Lexington, Virginia to the launch of this actual website, important points in the Order’s history are linked and explained.
*KA150 tip CELEBRATE OUR HISTORY – Find your chapter, the chartering Knight Commander, and the chartering members.

Check out the aggregate list of all postings with the hashtag #KA150.
*KA150 tip PROMOTE OUR ORDER- If you post, it’ll end up here. Share your event pictures, your memories, and your thoughts as we enter this special year.
