Past Regent Randy Capps Enters Chapter Eternal

Brother H. Randall "Randy" Capps (Kentucky Wesleyan) entered Chapter Eternal on February 2, 2022. He was 85.

Brother Capps was initiated into the Eta Epsilon Chapter at Kentucky Wesleyan College in 1962. There, he began his service to Sigma Nu in the collegiate officer roles of Lt. Commander, Treasurer, Marshal, and Recruitment Chairman.

After graduation, Brother Capps devoted his life to serving the Fraternity locally and nationally. He served as an advisor to the Eta Epsilon Chapter from 1964 to 1972, a Division Commander from 1971 to 1976, and as Dean of the College of Chapters in 1975 and 1977. In 1976, he began his service to the High Council and would later be elected as the 47th Regent of the Fraternity in 1980.

In addition to Brother Capps’ volunteer roles with the Fraternity, he was instrumental in the founding of the Eta Rho Chapter at Western Kentucky University, and he authored the first update to the Fraternity's history since John C. Scott's Story of Sigma Nu with the Heritage History of Sigma Nu, published in 1978

Brother Capps was a leader in higher education, beginning his career as an English professor and then as the first chairman of the Department of Communications at Western Kentucky in 1968. He later became a full faculty member in the Ford College of Business at Western Kentucky, where he taught MBA students organizational leadership. In 1994, he founded the Leadership Strategies Group, which works with companies and organizations in strategy and leadership.

In recognition of his exceptional contributions to Sigma Nu Fraternity, Brother Capps was inducted to Sigma Nu's Hall of Honor in 2008. Last year, to honor his service to the chapter, the men of Eta Rho Chapter bestowed an Eta Rho initiate number upon Brother Capps as a non-matriculate affiliate of the chapter.

Throughout Brother Capp's life, he remained engaged with and interested in how Sigma Nu was accomplishing our mission to develop ethical leaders dedicated to Love, Honor, and Truth.

He will be remembered as a true and faithful Knight of the Legion of Honor.
