Epsilon Epsilon Sigma Chapter have been looking to reactivate Kappa Lambda Chapter on the campus of the University of Washington - Seattle (UW) for some time and it was with great pleasure that they had six initiates probated on Friday, May 26th at the UW Intellectual House.

In what seemed like a sea of Blue & White, Sigmas, Zetas, Sigma Betas, and Archonettes) came out to support the return of the chapter of Kings and Legends to the University of Washington last Friday.

"It has been exciting to usher in this new beginning, and we were honored to have been able to do so with hundreds of friends and family in attendance from all across our region including 1st Vice Regional Director, Bro. Kedric Nalls.", said Julian Heyward, President of Epsilon Epsilon Sigma Chapter. "Not to mention special our guests four out of the eight Kappa Lambda Chapter charter members, “The Phoenix” also known as the “Elite 8”: Bro. Levi H. Christopher, Bro. Tim Collins, Bro.Dexter Hart, and Bro. Ray Livingston."

According to Heyward, Kappa Lambda Chapter has a legacy of excellence academically, socially, and within our community, and these young men are excited to uphold that tradition to the highest degree.
