Brothers, This week we commemorate the passing of two Beta Tau brothers, Greg Eberting and Chris Grubb. As you know, we lost these men 31 years ago in a tragic car accident less than a mile from the chapter house. Having grown up in Baldwin City, I know the site well. It is actually on the same road I grew up on and drove around that corner thousands of times. Prior to becoming a Kappa Sigma, I wondered what the extra words and symbols meant that someone had written on the bottom board of the large wooden traffic sign that stands at that fateful intersection; I was only 3 years old when the accident occurred but I spent the next 20 years driving by. It was only during my 4 years at Baker that I came to know the significance of those Greek Symbols written at the bottom of that sign…A….E….K….Δ…B.
Joseph Simunac 1922-2015
Brother Simunac made an impact on many generations of Kappa Sigmas. Below is a link to his obituary in the Baldwin City Signal. He will be missed:
Welcome to the Beta Tau chapter of Kappa Sigma's home on the web. Kappa Sigma has a long history dating back to 1400 in Italy, and 1869 in the United States. The Beta Tau chapter of Kappa Sigma is one of the oldest chapters in Kappa Sigma and the first national fraternity founded on the Baker Univesity campus.
