Nominations are encouraged at the beginning of the final semester of studies to allow time for certification by the KGP National Office and public announcement of the election on campus.

The Saint Catherine medal depicts the traditional patroness of Kappa Gamma Pi, Saint Catherine of Alexandria, virgin martyr (c 310), encircled by the spiked wheel of her legendary martyrdom and holding a quill and scroll, which symbolize learning and wisdom. Saint Catherine has long served as an inspiration for individuals who aspire to obtain knowledge and to stand their own ground against constraints placed upon them. Only KGP Affiliates can order Saint Catherine Medals. If you are an affiliate and would like to order a Saint Catherine Medal, you can order it from your user account in Engage. You can also email to request an order form or download one here. Thank you!
