Administrative history

Beta Sigma Phi came to the Battlefords in 1946. Fourty-five women formed Kappa chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, with president Laura Murphy. The Greek letters of its name represent Life, Learning, and Friendship, which is the organization's motto. Beta Sigma Phi is an international women's social, cultural, and service organization. Founded in Abilene, Kansas in 1931, the organization has spread to every state of the U.S., to every Canadian province, and to 30 other countries. There are now 200,000 members in chapters around the world. Typical chapters enjoy socials that range from informal gatherings to gala affairs that often include friends and family. Fascinating cultural programs offer insight into subjects that range from the arts to gardening to in-home businesses.
