Chapter Update: June 2010
Eta Tau has made a significant turnaround. We’re making our grades, paying our dues, and getting work done. We’ve made the TWO out of the last three editions of the Sigma Chi Magazine. We are steadily paying our debt down. And most importantly, the newest elected executive officers are leading the way to greater heights than this chapter has ever seen before.
The 2010-2011 recently elected executives of Eta Tau are: Consul: Wesley James; Pro Consul: Michael Shelton; Annotator: Chris Rader; Quaestor: Colby Fritz; Fall Magister: Shelton Briley; Spring Magister: Colin Marchand; Chapter Editor: Colin Marchand; Fall Recruitment Chairman: Torrey Pinkerton; Chapter Historian: Kyle Larson; Kustos: Logan Byerly; Tribune: Logan Byerly.
Thank you to all of our Brothers that came out to our 35th Anniversary Alumni Weekend. It was a great weekend of getting away from the family and having some amazing brotherhood. 2010 Sigma Chi Derby Days raised a substantial amount of money. We donated over $2,500.00 to Boys and Girls Club of Nacogdoches and to a small family in Quitman, Texas (outside Lindale) that is struggling with a son who has cancer and can’t afford the treatment that he desperately needs. We are currently doing everything we can to better help our community. Our Philanthropy Chairman is getting us involved with programs such as Keep Nac Beautiful and Habitat for Humanity that involve the active brothers helping out the community with trash pickups and the construction of homes for some of the less fortunate.
The Chapter recently participated in a Skeet Tournament fundraiser in Houston where we raised $2,000.00 in just one day of work. Fundraisers for the upcoming fall semester include a volleyball tournament, ultimate Frisbee, Sigma Chi Male Sale, and open parties that have cover charges.
2010 Spring Magister Eric Blake is taking two of his pledges, Travis Fore and Matt Flaherty, into I-Week on August 15th – 21st alongside three U of H pledges. I-Week will be run at the Eta Tau Sigma Chi Chapter House by Pro Consul Michael Shelton.
