Alumni / Distinguished Alumni
Beta Sigma Psi and Zeta Chapter have produced many distinguished alumni in our brief 92-year history. We constitute one of the smallest national fraternities in terms of our size, but our impact to the world is proportionately well beyond our limited size when compared to other fraternities in America. In politics, we currently have the Speaker of the House in the State of Indiana and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of Illinois. Several of our lawyers have become district judges and principal members of major law firms. We have had Governors, State senators, and state legislators. We have had a Major General in the army plus many other outstanding servicemen in all branches of the military. In the corporate world, we have had dozens of alums become presidents and vice presidents of their companies. We also have alums that have collectively produced hundreds of patents in the engineering, medical and electronics/computer fields. One of our engineers invented the creeping crane that was necessary to build the St. Louis Arch. We have produced many leaders in the Lutheran Churches throughout the country as well dozens of pastors in all of the Lutheran synods. In Education, we have College Presidents and many outstanding professors who are national leaders in their fields of endeavor. Finally, in the world of sports, Zeta Chapter alumnus Mitch Holthus is currently the longest-tenured play-by-play announcer for the Kansas City Chiefs and is a college basketball announcer for ESPN. From 1983 to 1996 he was also the Voice of the Kansas State Wildcats football and basketball and 8-time Kansas Sportscaster of the Year.
