Charlottesville (VA) Alumni Chapter of
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. Mission Statement

A group of men, interested in continuing the Kappa traditions, gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia with the purpose of organizing an Alumni Chapter.   The group met from time to time and eventually grew to nine members but were unable to attain a charter until the prerequisite number of ten was met.  George Warren, a Brother from Lexington, Virginia, heard the plight of the Brothers and traveled to Charlottesville to be the tenth member of the group.

A charter was issued on April 5, 1975 by the Province Polemarch, the Honorable James Overton.  The chartering ceremonies and reception were held at Richard's Hide-Away on Route 29 South.  It was a most beautiful occasion and obviously a highlight in the history of the Charlottesville Chapter.  Visiting Brothers from as far away as Hampton and Richmond Alumni Chapters came to be with us on the occasion.
