Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority is saddened to announce the death of past national president, Kim Ramsey Meyer, BB, on May 7, 2020.
Kim served as national president from 1992-96. During her time as president, Alpha Sigma Alpha revamped the membership education program, introducing The Encounter: A Lifetime Membership and eliminating the word “pledge” as a reference to a person. The Advisor’s Handbook was written, a new standards program for chapters was created and the organization introduced the AlphaNet- Alpha Sigma Alpha’s first internet-based alumnae networking platform. The organization also saw the installation of eleven chapters and the construction and dedication of three chapter houses. During this time, the Sorority Philanthropic Fund was transferred to the Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation allowing the Foundation to endow more scholarships.
In addition to serving as national president, Kim served as the Phoenix collegiate editor 1980-82; Phoenix alumnae editor 1982-86; province director 1986-88; convention chairman 1986; chairman of membership education 1988-90; national vice president of programs 1990-92; national vice president of finance 1996-98, Beta Beta housing corporation president 2002-04; Foundation board development committee member 2003-06; and Sorority housing corporation president 2014-20. As an undergraduate member at the University of Northern Colorado, Kim was awarded the Elizabeth Bird Small Award (1973), the highest recognition a collegian can receive. In 2000 Kim received the Helen Corey Award and in 2002 she received the Wilma Wilson Sharp Award. Kim was a member of the Denver Alumnae chapter.
“Kim was always full of poise and grace. In our recent conversations, she shared how proud she was of Alpha Sigma Alpha being a forward-thinking organization. Her smile and quiet presence will be greatly missed.” said Kelly McGinnis Beck, national president.
