About Us

Kappa Delta Chapter

The Kappa Delta chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi was founded on February 26, 1995 by the Eta Pi chapter at the University of Northern Iowa. Mr. Alfred E. Sergal III was the sponsor at the time of installation. The chapter serves the various band programs at Northwest Missouri State in a variety of ways throughout the year. During the marching band season, the chapter helps with set-up and tear-down before and after practices, and supplies apples and water for the band during football games. The chapter also helps with setting up for practices for many of the other instrumental ensembles and concerts. Over all, the goal of the Kappa Delta chapter is to serve the band programs at Northwest Missouri State in any way they can.
