A local scholarship program for current actives was initiated by the Alpha Sigma Alumni Association in 2017 with the first award being presented at the Founder’s Day celebration on March 4, 2017. This program relies on generous alums who believe in encouraging and rewarding outstanding character.
In the tradition of Pi Kappa Alpha members being “Scholars, Athletes, Leaders and Gentlemen”, the first award was named the James Green Athlete Award, recognizing Alpha Sigma alum Jim Green.
Jim was a football player at Cal and was a member of the 1959 Rose Bowl team. He went on to be a successful high school teacher and football coach until he lost a 12 year battle to ALS in 1985.
