COLUMBIA, MO – On January 28, 2017, the Beta Alpha Chapter at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri held their Re-Chartering Ceremony at the Elm Street Ballroom officially welcoming 52 brothers to Sigma Tau Gamma.

“It was an honor to be a part of the Beta Alpha Re-Chartering Ceremony. These men are world class and have made a solid name for themselves on campus. They continue to recruit men of the highest caliber, having some of the best grades of fraternity men at Mizzou.” said Chief Executive Officer, Steve Latour, Central Missouri. “I am so proud of the actions that led them to this day and cannot wait to see what they accomplish in the years to come.”
At the ceremony, CEO Steve Latour announced that the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation established the University of Missouri Endowment for the Beta Alpha Chapter.
