Welcome to the online home for the Portland Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta.
The Portland Chapter was installed in 1911! As alumnae, we nurture the bonds of sisterhood
through fellowship, fun and philanthropy.
Here you can find upcoming events, our current Board members, links to our social media, and
information about local chapters. You can also get in touch with us on the Contact Us page if you are
new to the Portland area, have questions, or if you want to get involved.
We look forward to the bonds we will make together!
Founders Day Message
What a tremendous privilege it is to celebrate our sesquicentennial Founders Day in 2020! This January 27, we not only remember our founders, we also honor the amazing 150-year legacy of their creation: Kappa Alpha Theta.
By envisioning Kappa Alpha Theta and then having the courage and grace to bring that vision to life, our founders showed what one woman can do ... what four women can do ... what women together can do. We are the beneficiaries of the risks they took, and we can continue to be a force for understanding and supporting the aspirations of women at every stage of life. Like our founders, we can choose to be strong and dedicated, to grow personally, and to be part of something larger than ourselves.
Because they knew they deserved more, because they knew they deserved the same college experience as men, Bettie, Alice, Hannah, and Bettie gave us Kappa Alpha Theta. They gave us a welcoming, empowering, supportive space that each of us is able to cherish in her own way.
Happy 150th anniversary, Kappa Alpha Theta! Loyally,
Mandy Burgett Wushinske, Zeta Sigma/Ohio Northern Fraternity President
