For nearly 150 years, Sigma Kappa has preserved a wealth of historical materials, including our Founders' personal letters, member photographs, meeting notes, scrapbooks, jewelry, and more. Previously, these artifacts have lived at national headquarters or with individual chapters. Now, through our partnership with HistoryIT, a transformative technology archival company, Sigma Kappa is taking steps to ensure our history remains safe and accessible to all our members for years to come.
Currently, more than 10,000 items are being digitally preserved by the HistoryIT team for Sigma Kappa's digital museum. Launching in June 2022, this dynamic site will share Sigma Kappa's history with current and future generations.
On the website, pieces are tagged so members may search specific chapters, members, eras and more. When history is accessible, we have the chance to connect with moments in time, engage with fellow members and see Sigma Kappa's history from a new perspective.
As HistoryIT continues to build our site, we invite you to join along in the journey. Click the link above to sign up for an insider newsletter and receive sneak peeks, updates and details about the site prior to the June 2022 launch.
We can't wait to share nearly 150 years of Sigma Kappa's history with you! If you have questions or want to learn more about contributing to our HistoryIT project, please email Melinda Mettler, senior director of membership strategy.
