A little bit of history…
The Wisconsin Alpha Sigma Chapter was organized on October 7, 1930 with 35 members. In his 1935 book “Wisconsin History of Agricultural Extension”, local historian Ernest L. Luther stated that “The purpose of the organization was to maintain the traditions, uphold the ideals, stimulate the morale of cooperative extension service, and to promote fraternal spirit among its members.”
