Portales, NM – After the close of the 2017 Cowdrop Fundraiser, the men of the Theta-Zeta Chapter of Kappa Sigma are proud to present two checks to ENMU. The first check is our annual $2,000 to support the ENMU Foundation1, presented to the Foundation’s Executive Director, Noelle Bartl. The second check is our ongoing commitment to fund the ENMU Stadium a total of 10,000; this check was in the amount of $2,500 and presented to Draco Miller, Director of Stadium Operations and Dr. Long, Vice President of Student Affairs.
We wish to thank our sponsors and everyone who participated in making our 2017 Cowdrop fundraiser a great success, allowing us to donate to these local initiatives in addition to Kappa Sigma’s Military Heroes Campaign2. Here’s to next year’s event, where we hope that you will join us once more!

Recently our Chapter was featured on the local news for our recent contribution to the ENMU Stadium project. Grand Master Tyler Herring and Grand Master of Ceremonies Joshua Salazar gave an interview with KRQE News 13 and spoke on how proud they are to help support our ENMU Athletics, and their own excitement for the stadium.
We were able to donate $2,500, proceeds from your donations to our Cowdrop fundraiser, given to the ENMU Foundation. We invite you to contact us to learn more, and take a look at the original KRQE article and video.

The Theta-Zeta for Life initiative has awarded 16 brothers with scholarships for those who met the requirements for fall 2015. More details are available on the Theta-Zeta for Life page, but in short, these brothers had both a great academic achievements, and contributed to the Chapter in an impactful way.
In an email sent out earlier this month to alumni, these brothers expressed their gratitude for receiving these awards. We decided to share select quotes below. To request the full PDF, please contact us.
I would like to thank all of you that donated your own hard earned money towards the Theta Zeta for Life Scholarship. It is an honor to have been awarded this scholarship and I hope to keep representing this chapter in the best way in which I am capable. Truthfully, if this scholarship did not exist, there is a good chance that I would not have stayed around due to financial reasons. So I would once again like to thank every one of you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of something bigger and greater than just myself.
I just want to say thank you to the supporters of this scholarship, you’ve made it easy on me during this time where I have had difficulty finding a job and made my time with the fraternity a little less stressful. I hope this scholarship encourages and helps more brothers in the fraternity.
I received the Theta-Zeta for life scholarship for this Spring 2016 semester and it helped alleviate many problems for me. As a student athlete it is extremely hard to get a job that is willing to work around my hectic baseball, school and fraternal schedule. Having 6 months of my dues paid for allows me to focus on other things like helping the chapter out with brothers getting certificates and helping mold some of the young actives into leaders and help them mature and grow as men all the while doing the same for myself. I would just like to thank all of you for your contributions to our chapter and helping make our lives as college students that much easier.
I’ve always had family cover for fraternity expenses, [and] this scholarship affords me extra housing funds in place of that luxury.
