The Sig Cup, an alumni scholarship golf fundraiser between the Kappa Sigs and Alpha
Sigs, celebrated 10 years earlier this month with 59 brothers participating, according
to Steve LaHood, an alum and Kappa Sig.
“Back in the day (1967-1970) these two fraternities were located adjacent to each
other on fraternity row. The competition was very fierce between the two houses.
John Goudy, Alpha Sig, and I were friends while attending Trine and remain friends
today. We thought of this idea to get alumni back to the university and fraternity
in a friendly competition centered around golf and fund raising. The first year we
both had four brothers,” Steve wrote on the Kappa Sigma fraternity site (http://www.theta-xiofkappasigma.com/).
“This year the Kappa Sigs had 32 brothers participate and 35 brothers make a contribution
to the scholarship fund. In past years we awarded two $1,000 scholarships to two brothers
in each house,” he wrote. Twenty-seven Alpha Sig brothers participated.
“This year we will award four $1,000 scholarships in each house. The scholarships
are awarded based on GPA, community service and good standing with both the national
and local chapter. The Sig Cup is played over a two-day period tied in with the university
Alumni & Friends Scholarship outing on the first Friday in August. We have raised
over $40,000 to date but more importantly getting alumni brothers back to the campus
is very special.”
