Chapter History

Who We Are

Local Theta alumnae established the Kappa Alpha Theta Alumnae Club in the 1940's. Our charter as Amarillo Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta was granted April 27, 1963.  Our chapter is nationally recognized as a very philanthropic Theta alumnae group with a long standing tradition of excellence. We currently have 57 dues-paying members and have had in excess of 100 members in the past.

In 1996, the KAO Amarillo Alumnae Chapter was reacognized at the "Most Improved Alumnae Chapter" at Grand convention in Asheville, NC.  In 2002, the KAO Amarillo Alumnae Chapter received a national award at KAO Grand Convention, held in Orlando, Fl.

The Kappa Alpha Theta Amarillo Alumnae Chapter Scholarship was establised in 1991.  The scholarship is dedicated to providing greater access to educational opportunity. The mission of the Kappa Alpha Theta Scholarship is to help women who plan to re-enter the work force by helping them receive a college education.  The Kappa Alpha Theta Scholarship is managed by the Amarillo College Foundation. Through our generous support of our philanthropic efforts through our annual pansy sale, we are able to grant scholarships to Amarillo College students.  

Since 1986, the Amarillo Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta has donated more than $51,000 to local, national and Kappa Alpha Theta charities.
