Kappa Sigma honors 9/11 anniversary

September 11, 2023

The Kappa Sigma Chapter at Northwood University has commemorated the anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, by raising funds for first responders and the nation’s 9/11 memorial. 

The fraternity planted American flags along campus to represent everyone who lost their lives on 9/11. Members also held a stair climb event to raise funds for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum; FDNY Foundation; and Flags of Honor. 

“We feel that we owe a forever debt to those who lost their lives protecting this country — if it wasn’t for those brave souls … this country would not be what it is today,” stated Devon Dyer. “That’s why we feel it’s important to give back and to remember every single soul we lost on that frightful day.”

On Sunday, Sept. 10, the Brothers of Kappa Sigma climbed 58 Flights of stairs to represent the route that rescue Firefighters had to take up the World Trades Center Buildings.  

“We do this because it’s supposed to make us feel just 1% of what the first responders felt when going up and down that building,” stated Philanthropy Chair Eddie MacNellis. “It’s our way of ‘sharing the pain’ and expressing our condolences and remembrance.”

To support the effort, donations can be made online at The donation window will be open until Friday, Sept. 15.
