Simpson Fraternity Shares School Spirit

For 20 years, the members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity on the Simpson College campus have traveled to various high school football and basketball games, cheering on teams who need a jolt of enthusiasm.

They spend a few Friday nights during football and basketball season dressing up in the high school’s colors, painting their faces and then yelling like crazy.

The home team crowd loves it, but remain puzzled, wondering, “Who are those guys?”

KCCI-TV in Des Moines solved that mystery last night in a wonderful feature about how 40 SAE members brought life recently to Clarke High School in Osceola.

    I am a Simpson student but also have children in high school…Clarke High School. I can honestly say that the fans, students, parents, and football boys and coaches really appreciated this group of guys coming down and cheering for our team. We have had a lot of rough seasons (20 years) and this year things are starting to come around. Thanks guys!
