The National College Athlete Honor Society, Chi Alpha Sigma, was founded on May 17, 1996 at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. Its founding father was Nick Mourouzis, DePauw's head football coach. The mission of the NCAHS is to bring honor and recognition to deserving student-athletes, their families, teams, athletic departments and college in much the same way as Phi Beta Kappa honors scholastics. The organization recognizes college students, who receive a varsity letter in their sport while maintaining a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average throughout their junior and senior years. The governing board of the NCAHS represents all levels of competition in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the National Association of Intercollege Athletics (NAIA).
