To all Brothers, Active, Alumni, and Honorary,
On Tuesday, March 12, 2013, the Alpha Omicron Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi celebrated its 75th Anniversary of the installation of its charter. The Brothers of AO are extremely proud and very excited to have reached this milestone in our chapter’s history.
Since the very first day that Texas Tech University opened its doors to students, it has had a band program and over the next 90 years, the Texas Tech Band has provided a source of personal and artistic expression for students. Thousands of Tech students and alumni can proudly say that they’ve been a member of one of the finest and most prestigious collegiate band programs in the country. For 75 of those years, Kappa Kappa Psi has been there to lead and serve the band from their first years as a small group of musicians to the nationally recognized program it is today.
Since those humble beginnings, Kappa Kappa Psi at Texas Tech has continued to strive for the highest level of achievement in support of our band. Since the time of “Prof” Wiley, Alpha Omicron has continued to grow and its membership is filled with students, past and present, who demonstrate outstanding dedication and devotion to music. We are very pleased to continue excellent service for our bands. The support of our faculty and staff has greatly enhanced our call to service and our drive to success. The support and confidence of our sponsors, our alumni, our honorary members, and our active members is what ultimately keeps the flame of our Founding Fathers alive.
Alpha Omicron has grown considerably since the original 17 students formed the first Texas chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi. Over the years, the chapter has grown to fully understand and respect what it means to serve. Through their love of music, over 1400 brothers have striven to further benefit the Tech Band and keep the Goin' Band goin', as well as spread this excitement and love for Music, Service, and Brotherhood throughout Texas and the Nation.
We are proud to be Brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi and we are extremely excited to keep the wonderfully rich history of the Alpha Omicron chapter alive!
CONGRATULATIONS ALPHA OMICRON ON 75 YEARS OF SERVICE!
