tbs kkpsi note.jpg

"On May 16, 1969, John Jenkins sponsored the formation of the Epsilon Nu Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi and the Delta Delta chapter of Tau Beta Sigma. The Sisters of TBS and Brothers of KKPsi each strive to promote the university band program through fundraising, membership, and service. These national honorary band fraternity and sorority organizations hold a variety of activities, including social functions, concert receptions, Saturday morning wake-up calls for band members, the end-of-year band banquets, and Old Chapel and Fine Arts Center clean-ups. The organizations also helped produce CDs of UMass ensembles such as University Jazz Ensemble, the Wind Ensemble, the Minuteman Marching Band, and the Hoop Band."
