What was your most positive KA undergraduate experience? After transferring from West Virginia Wesleyan College, where I was initiated, to Marshall University where the chapter had no house, I got heavily involved in an attempt to strengthen the chapter. It required learning how to cope with a wide range of issues and making some tough decisions. In two years we had a house and KA was one of the top fraternities on campus. Being a KA helped make me a better leader and a better judge of issues, challenges, competitors and allies. Why do you continue to support KA today by being part of the KAOEF’s Crimson & Gold Society? Leading a college fraternity in today’s environment is complex and takes a number of skills. When asked to serve on the KAOEF Board, I accepted. It was during that time that I witnessed firsthand the training and instruction chapter officers and members receive from KAOEF funded programs and training. These opportunities for growth and development provide a positive base for young men’s careers and issues they will face. Educational programs like those being offered to our Kappa Alpha brothers deserve continued support from all KAs. Joining the Crimson and Gold Society was an easy decision for me because

I recognize how important it is that KA provide quality training for our active brothers. Our future success depends on it. What do you hope young men take away from their KA experience today? The lifetime friendships, the personal growth and chapter activities are common aspects of KA, or any fraternity life and should be cherished. I also believe taking any leadership role in the chapter and/or on campus is a major plus to one’s KA experience. When coupled with leadership education training provided by the KAOEF, KA brothers today have powerful assets for one’s future.

“The experience of rebuilding a chapter gave me skills I didn’t know existed and would not have gotten without membership in KA.”

Join successful brothers like Harvey White, and become a member of the Crimson & Gold Society today at KAcrimsonandgold.com

Knight Commander’s Message Dear Brothers, I have now completed one year as your 40th Knight Commander. Time certainly does fly. I want to provide you with a brief update on one of our Order’s priorities. Values alignment in our educational efforts and leadership development is an important process I believe will continue to enhance our already strong leadership education programs. Having consistent values-based messaging across programs helps instill regular application of these values in our emerging and existing leaders of our chapters. To this end, I appointed a Values and Leadership Education Task Force to begin work on providing consistency to our public values structure and review of our programs to ensure they are interwoven. Fine work has already been accomplished and is being implemented now. All governing documents of the Order were consulted first. The task force and its leadership met with the Executive Council, national staff, province commanders, leaders of Active Chapters, emerging leaders, and many more brothers. A survey was conducted of our undergraduate leadership, and, an in-person focus group was facilitated at the 2016 Emerging Leaders Academy. After a number of conference calls to discuss and distill the information, the chairman, Councilor David P. Barksdale made his final report to the Executive Council. During this presentation, he laid out the need for an educational and promotional purpose statement to compliment our mission. He also shared previously used values-sets and provided a clear list. While a KA could adopt dozens of terms to describe our ritual and or culture, I believe the following is as strong a description anyone could find. The Executive Council adopted the following nomenclature, which to many of you, will not seem foreign:

Purpose Statement: A Moral Compass for the Modern Gentleman Values: Reverence Leadership Gentility Brotherhood Knowledge Excellence There are already promotional material, both print and digital, available for chapters to use in recruitment. Much more education and marketing will be provided in the coming months to share and integrate these values into our everyday lexicon. I want to thank David Barksdale, Councilor and Task Force Chairman, King Aiken, Councilor, Ben Satcher, Former Knight Commander, Greg Singleton, Forester Province Commander, Bill Skipper, KAOEF Trustee, John Rooney, Chiles Province Commander, Matthew O’Neal, Gamma Alpha Alumnus Advisor, and, Brent Fellows, Assistant Executive Director for Alumni Affairs, the staff liaison. They have worked with excellence as their aim, and will continue to exhibit that value in their ongoing effort.

THE K APPA ALPHA JOUR NAL

Letter from the Editor Dear Brothers,

The Kappa Alpha Journal (ISSN #0888-8868, USPS #014-747) is an educational journal published four times a year by Kappa Alpha Order, 115 Liberty Hall Rd., Lexington, Virginia. Periodicals postage paid at Lexington, Virginia, and additional mailing offices. The Kappa Alpha Journal seeks to reflect the Kappa Alpha experience by presenting news of active and alumni chapters, individual members, and the national organization; by addressing current issues facing the Greek system and the Order; by educating and entertaining those interested in the welfare of Kappa Alpha; and by serving as a historical record. The Kappa Alpha Journal has been published since 1879. From 1883 to 1885 it was known as The Magazine of Kappa Alpha. Kappa Alpha Order was founded in 1865 at Washington College (Washington and Lee University) in Lexington, Virginia. Today, Kappa Alpha boasts 125 undergraduate chapters and more than 60 alumni chapters across the nation. Volume CXXIII, Number 2 Fall 2016 POSTMASTER: Send address changes to Kappa Alpha Order, P.O. Box 1865 Lexington, VA 24450 Member of

Previously in our history, the Order boasted multiple governors, senators, congressmen, and other local, state and national leaders—at a single point in time. Would that be a source of pride today? By now you’ve hopefully cast your ballots for all of these office , and, the highest office in the Land. This is to s y that this year’s election is now, thankfully, over. This edition of The Journal is not about the election. Seriously, in an ongoing quest to entertain, educate, and inform our brothers through The Journal, why would we want to keep beating that horse? However, the timing of this issue is indeed on purpose, and the purpose of this issue is, the future. Our feature stories are not about elected official , save one, and he was not running this year. The Mountain State Governor’s example of steady leadership and cooperation is one that other elected officials could do ell to model. Many states and locales, along with West “by God” Virginia, are in need of strong leadership, strong support, and a vision for a strong future. And that is the focus of the rest of the features found in this issue. Did you know that our Order and the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation have, for 12 years, fully funded a program to place undergraduates in D.C. for a full summer internship? We now have 64 “alumni” of this program who have worked in and around Washington, D.C., both in the public and private sector, in local and state government, and beyond. A number have even started their career on the National Staff of the Order. We are in a time when we as, a nation and Order, are wanting for strong, ethical leaders. We are in a time when we have seen a decline in the number of men and women (please, sorority women, help us run the country like you run your chapters, our Greek communities, and campuses) choosing public service. KA is in the middle of reinvigorating both notions on campus and in government. Please enjoy this issue about young men and other alumni helping shape our future. Our future belongs to all of us, after all.

Fraternally,

Jesse S. Lyons Editor jlyons@ka-order.org

There are numerous benefits to joining a fraternity, some of which are immediate, and some that are more apparent later in life, as shown in a recent Gallup-Purdue Index study of 30,000 U.S. college graduates of all ages and backgrounds. The study found that members of fraternities and sororities are generally happier than those who did not join Greek organizations in college. The research also found that Greeks are less stressed about money, have more supportive social lives, and are in better physical health. 161 Likes; 50 Shares STORMY MARKHAM THIBODEAUX #WHYKA

Congratulations on another great issue of the Kappa Alpha Journal! Additionally, I commend you on the launch of KappaAlphaJournal.com. This will be a great channel for sharing news of the Order and the accomplishments of chapters, undergraduates, and alumni in a more-timely manner. As a Loyal Order member, I look forward to each issue of the print magazine and now the online version will be a great way to keep me aware of Kappa Alpha activities as they occur.

[Editor’s Note: Read more about the importance of the KAOEF’s Crimson & Gold Society in the Annual Report] Just a quick note to say how much I appreciated reading the Journal story in the Summer issue about Citadel Cadet Scoville’s 96 year-old badge. Great story! The close photograph of the back of the badge reveals that it was definitely made by the L.G. Balfour Company, which Mr. Balfour founded in June of 1913 and, by that time, had contracted with most of the more prestigious 4

NIC fraternities by that time. The simple lone “B” trademark was used by L.G. Balfour until the mid 1930s, at which time a more elaborate “temple B” was used for more than 30 years: Cheers, gentlemen, and all best wishes. Eugene D. (Buddy) Coté Director, Fraternal Division Herff Jones, Inc.

ERRORS/OMISSIONS Summer 2016 On page 51, We accidentally identified actor Chris Lusti as an initiate from Gamma Tau at Sam Houston State University. He is from Delta Iota at University of Texas at Arlington. The Journal regrets this error, and, we wish him the best in the entertainment business. On page 12, In “Brothers Around the Order” photo number 3 should have had the following caption: “Western Carolina brothers made a pilgrimage in 2015 to Lexington, Virginia, to tour the KA sites, visit the grave of Samuel Zenas Ammen, and, the home where WCU founding president, Robert Lee Madison, was born.” The caption that was included did not have a picture.

The Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee (FSPAC) is a bipartisan organization that provides financial support to federal candidates interested in preserving and improving the fraternal experience. We advocate for public policy objectives that will allow students and alumni/alumnae to benefit from the academic, community and leadership development opportunities made available to them through the Greek experience. Since inception, several KA alumni have served on the board, including two past presidents, Former Knight Commander James R. Estes and Executive Director Larry Stanton Wiese. Former Knight Commander Ben W. Satcher, Jr. now serves on the board.

Do you serve or have you previously served on the governing board for a college or university? The Order is compiling a list of members who are current or past board members for increased advocacy, knowledge, and engagement. Please email Brent W. Fellows, assistant executive directory for alumni affairs, at bfellows@ ka-order.org to report your board service. The schools you’ve led do not necessarily need to host a KA chapter.

Leadership Education Brings Hundreds to Lexington

THE ORDER HELD ITS ANNUAL EMERGING LEADERS ACADEMY (ELA)

at Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Institute June 9–12, 2016. More than 220 undergraduates attended the leadership education program, representing 70 chapters from across the United States. ELA seeks to educate upcoming and future undergraduate leaders on various aspects of chapter operations and leadership. ELA also allows the undergraduate attendees to visit the Kappa Alpha Order National Administrative Office, the birthplace of KA, and other sites significant to the Order including the final resting place of some of our founders and past national leadership. ELA attendees heard from featured speakers present in large group facilitation, experts in small breakout sessions, and facilitated small group discussions in “Mock Chapter Groups.” Some of the featured speakers included Luke E. Murphy (Gamma Eta–Florida State ’09), retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant, SGM E. Kent McMichael (Beta Commission–VMI ’95), Donald R. Gardner (Gamma Gamma–Memphis ’59), retired U.S. Marine Corps Major General, and Dave W. “Buzz” Baker (Beta Delta–Georgetown ’79), sports anchor and account executive. Along with the educational sessions, attendees to ELA participated in community service projects throughout Lexington, Virginia, and Rockbridge County in KA’s Project Outreach Initiative. A total of 670 community service hours were completed and logged by attendees to ELA. A total of 48 KAs arrived a day early and completed the Stewards of the Order program, gaining a deeper understanding of the symbolism and philosophy of our ritual. In addition, 38 Crusade Commanders completed the Crusade RoundTable track to help them understand and implement KA’s premier leadership development program. For more information on the summer programming for 2017, visit www.KappaAlphaOrder.org/ELA.

Leadership at NICF’s Foundations Seminar KAPPA ALPHA ORDER IS PROUD TO BE INVOLVED IN THE interfraternal community, and the Order

was well represented at the Foundations Seminar hosted August 22–24 by the North American Interfraternity Conference Foundation in Indianapolis, Indiana.

ELA participants meet with other brothers and peers, visit Lee Chapel and Washington and Lee University, the Virginia Military Institute, hear from leadership speakers and even perform community service for the area.

Former Knight Commander William E. "Bill" Dreyer (Alpha Delta–William Jewell ’57) served on the panel of fraternity and sorority philanthropists. The panel, entitled “Donor Psychology— Inside the Hearts and Minds,” was a question-and-answer session about how these philanthropists consider a gift to his/her fraternity foundation and what their expectations are once they have decided on a gift amount and purpose for the gift.

Former Knight Commander and Chief Development Officer Ben W. Satcher, Jr. (Delta Omicron–Clemson ’79) was the Chairman of the Seminar’s planning committee. Ben and his committee were given the task of creating the theme, developing the workshops and educational sessions, as well as securing speakers and facilitators who are experts in the fund-raising industry.

THE Foundations Seminar, attended by more than 400 professionals from 75 foundations, provides professionals and volunteers who manage and lead fraternal foundations with a forum to collaborate on a myriad of issues uniquely associated with advancing their organizations’ missions.

KAOEF Director of Development Andrew P. Carr (Epsilon Iota–Texas State ’00) served as a panelist for an interactive session about planning and implementing a successful day of giving campaign. Attendees and panelists discussed how to build a day of giving campaign into annual fundraising strategies, crafting a compelling message and visual identity, leveraging social media and traditional communication channels, and maintaining excitement among alumni throughout the campaign.

Wreath Award from the North-American Interfraternity Conference for the co-development and implementation of the Social Strengths Workshop. The Laurel Wreath is presented to individuals or groups in recognition of their unique programs, community outreach, or influence within the fraternal world. KA was one of six fraternities who collaborated to spearhead the development of the Social Strengths Workshop to educate members on sexual assault, relational violence, healthy relations, and bystander intervention. Working with Aaron Boe, an alumnus of Kappa Sigma, and owner/president of Prevention Culture, KA sought to address these important issues on college campuses by creating a student program with additional training materials for alumni. Throughout the fall semester of 2015, every chapter of the Order received training through the workshop, reaching more than 7,500 undergraduate members.

Our Order leadership, friendship, and counsel of Larry Stanton Wiese as Executive Director for many more years to come; therefore, Be it resolved that the 39th Executive Council hereby both recognizes and expresses its deepest gratitude for the twenty years of service as Executive Director by Larry Stanton Wiese; and, Be it further resolved that this resolution be spread on the record of the 39th Executive Council minutes and published in The Kappa Alpha Journal, as a testament to his outstanding contributions and that a copy be presented to him by the Knight Commander. Adopted by the 39th Executive Council on the 29th of July, and subsequently presented this 30th day of July, 2016, at the 79th Meeting of the Advisory Council in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

INTERFRATERNALISM AT ITS BEST Pi Kappa Phi fraternity presented Wiese with the Durward W. Owen Interfraternity Award at its national convention. Named after longtime Pi Kappa Phi executive director and honorary fourth founding father, the Durward W. Owen Interfraternity Award recognizes the importance of working together, and not in competition, with other organizations for the benefit of the Greek world. For a frame of reference, Durward Owen was a colleague and friend with former Executive Director and Executive Vice President Emeritus William E. Forester (Gamma Gamma– Memphis ‘49) and former Executive Director Richard E. Barnes (Delta Lambda– Middle Tennessee State ’69). Larry is past president and former member of the board of directors for the Fraternity Executives Association (FEA) and past president and board member of FIPG, Inc., the groundbreaking risk management association. He is also a founder, past president and board member of the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee. Larry serves as the Fraternity Executives Association liaison and board member for the Southeastern Interfraternity Conference (SEIFC) and also as the Kappa Alpha Order representative on the North American Interfraternity Conference’s (NIC) Governing Council. Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. Timmes worked closely with Larry through both FEA and NIC. Timmes remarked, “Since becoming the executive director of Kappa Alpha Order in 1996, Larry Wiese has been an integral part of the interfraternal movement … Pi Kappa Phi and the interfraternal movement are better because of his efforts.”

The marker was first dedicated in on April 9, 1983, by the national presidents of each of the members of the Triad, Sigma Nu, Alpha Tau Omega, and the Order. A rededication ceremony was held with the sitting national presidents in 2009. Early in 2015, Washington and Lee removed the marker and base to install a road for a building renovation and expansion. Throughout the process, Archivist SGM E Kent McMichael was in contact with the university, oversaw the cleaning and restoration of the marker by Hamric Memorials in Lexington, and, coordinated the reinstallation just south of the former location, adjacent to the new roadway, on May 25, 2015.

In 1999, Former Knight Commander Dr. Idris R. Traylor, Jr. (Gamma Chi–Texas Tech ’70) designed, and the Executive Council authorized the creation of a jewel for this award. The jewel is a crimson cross, outlined in gold, with a golden knight on horseback, centered. It hangs from a ribbon collar of crimson and old gold. The jewel was fi st presented in 2001. The Knight Commander’s Accolade is the highest individual honor an alumnus can receive. In over fortyeight years since the award’s inception, fourteen Knight Commanders have conferred this high honor on just two hundred and twenty-one recipients. Knight Commander Darren S. Kay conferred the Knight Commander's Accolade upon Brent W. Fellows (Epsilon Theta–Western Kentucky ’98), Jesse S. Lyons (Delta Alpha– Western Carolina ’98), and Michael P.

WHAT IS IT? The E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program was created to provide deserving undergraduates with the desire to become better-educated and -informed on both the public and private sectors of our national government. In addition, this program will give undergraduates the opportunity to gain professional work experience while living in the Washington, D.C., area. The E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to any interested Kappa Alpha Order undergraduate. The internship, living and working in Washington, D.C., and interacting with other interns from across the country, provides an everlasting experience.

A Brief History of the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program AS WITH MANY SUCCESSFUL IDEAS, THE E. FLEMING MASON

Memorial Internship Program started over a cup of coffee. During the Fall of 2002, Executive Director Larry Wiese was scheduled to meet with Bill Skipper (Delta Tau–Francis Marion ’84) at a D.C. area hotel. Larry was in the area meeting with alumni and Bill was looking for an update on what was happening in Kappa Alpha Order. During their meeting the two discussed many things to include the size and health of KA, academic excellence, and financial goals. Toward the end of their meeting Bill asked Larry if KA would be supportive of an Internship Program on Capitol Hill. The vision these two gentlemen discussed was to bring deserving young men to Washington, D.C., to experience the real world of Capitol Hill and the surrounding district.  Bill shared with Larry the experience he was offered by E. Fleming Mason (Beta Pi–Presbyterian ’29) to come to Washington, D.C., and work for then-Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. This summer internship set Bill on a course that has now allowed him to serve for more than 30 years, in both public and private practice, in or around our Nation’s Capital. For more than 10 years, the KAOEF has fully funded this program through generous donations from alumni and friends of the Order. Interns only have to make their way to the airport from which they travel to DC, or drive, and, are responsible for their own living expenses beyond rent. What would be normally cost-prohibitive for many is essentially free for selected members. The internship program today honors E. Fleming Mason, an initiate of Beta Pi Chapter at Presbyterian College in 1929 and former Commander of the John Temple Graves Province (South Carolina) from 1962 to 1975, and former Preceptor of the Graves Court of Honor. E. Fleming Mason was the first director of the South Carolina highway patrol in the late 1930s and then made his career with the FBI until he retired in 1968. After his retirement, he served the province as the Preceptor of the Graves Court of Honor. Until his death in 1987, Brother Mason was extremely active in the affairs of the Order. He was a fixture at many Graves Province chapter functions. He worked tirelessly to promote the Order’s ideals and was instrumental in helping numerous KAs find summer employment and potential careers after graduation.

HOW ARE THE INTERNS SELECTED? An Internship Committee consisting of alumni who are supporters, former interns, and D.C. contacts, interviews and selects seven applicants based on their applications. The committee schedules phone interviews to finalize the list to five interns, with two alternates. Internship selections will most likely be finalized in late February/early March. HOW ARE THE INTERNSHIPS SELECTED FOR PLACEMENT? Selected applicants are placed into top-notch internships based on their future career plans and/or interests. Several KA alumni assist with internships for U.S. Senators and Congressman, lobbyists, fund-raisers, and other careerrelated fields. Sometimes two internships are provided for an intern to give him a different experience. WHAT DOES THE KAOEF PROVIDE FOR THE INTERNS? Interns will receive transportation to and from the program and lodging at GWU. Interns are responsible for all other costs and most internships are not paid. FUNDING AND SUPPORT The E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program is funded completely through the generosity of the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation and its donors. To help fund this unparallel program, please contact Chief Development Officer and Former Knight Commander Ben W. Satcher, Jr., at (540) 463-1865, or bsatcher@ka-order.org. If you have any questions about the program itself, please contact Director of Leadership Education Tullis Beasley at (540) 463-1865 or tbeasley@kaorder.org.

t Davis & Harman, I helped with an assortment of tasks. My cubicle was in the library, where tax filings and other tax reference books were kept. Usually once per week, I helped file new updates for the tax books. Luckily, I only had to replace pages—the contents looked like a foreign language to me. Other duties included ordering supplies for the office, helping the paralegals and attorneys with various housekeeping tasks, and prepping the office for fund-raising events. The office had a terrace, which had an outstanding view of the Washington Monument and the National Mall. The firm hosts a variety of events on the terrace, including fund-raisers for congressional candidates and other celebrations, such as a 4th of July party. I would also drive Tad around in his car. I would take him to lunch and to fund-raisers or gatherings near Capitol Hill. I would usually just park and wait for him, or grab a bite to eat and walk around a little bit. As routine as this sounds, it was rewarding to drive in downtown D.C. (albeit stressful at times) and see more of the city, and feel like a local. Plus, he drives an Audi, so that was sweet.

orking for Congressman Richard Hudson has been a great experience and has given me countless opportunities to see and meet people I would have never imagined possible. Through my internship I met countless Congressmen and had the opportunity to attend one of Speaker Paul Ryan’s hearings. During my internship, I developed new skills that will give me an extra advantage as I start my career once I graduate from Elon in the spring. Even though I am not a Political Science Major, I still benefited immensely from my experience working on Capitol Hill. An average day in the office consists of answering phone calls from constituents, drafting letters, going to meetings, taking documents to other Representatives’ offices, and giving a tour of the Capitol Building. There was never a dull moment at the Capitol. Being an E. Fleming Mason Memorial Intern gave me the opportunity to participate in numerous new and often unique experiences that will remain with me forever. These experiences were great, but there is one event in particular that stands out for me. I had the opportunity to meet retired Navy SEAL, Kevin Lacz, author of The Last Punisher. A staff member in Congressman Hudson’s office assisted Kevin in getting his book published, so while he was in Washington, Kevin came to the office for a personal visit. Kevin served alongside Chris Kyle, author of American Sniper, and was a member of the same sniper group in SEAL Team 3. Having the opportunity to meet and talk to a true American hero was an honor and something I will never forget. The E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship is a program that is like no other and is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Having the opportunity to work and live in Washington, D.C., is one of the greatest experiences of my life so far and I believe every brother that meets the requirements should apply to this program.

was grateful to have the opportunity to work in D.C. this summer, alongside four fellow fraternity brothers, thanks to the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship. Everyday this summer was a new experience and I can easily walk away from D.C. with a wealth of knowledge and firsthand experience that will help me in my future. I had the joy of working with Congressman Pittenger and with Larry Meyers of Meyers & Associates LLC. Working in Congressman Pittenger’s office was a rewarding time. Being able to walk the halls of the nation’s Capitol every day was a treat of its own. There are very few places where one can actually feel the power resonate from the halls as you walk through them, but the Capitol is one. The days consisted of the standard phone calls, constituent letters and coffee runs, but in between the intern tasks we had the freedom to network and learn. We were given the chance to reach out to people we wanted to meet, set up informational interviews, and attend hearings if we wanted to. Through this free time I was able to meet with multiple experts in the world of defense acquisition and start a personal project that led me to working directly with the House and Senate Armed Services Committees. My work ending up paying off for me and I was able to be published before the end of the summer. This report helped jumpstart my career and added to my credibility before I have graduated. At Meyers & Associates, Larry made sure I had my work cut out for me. Every day was filled with new items to research and new reports to draft for our client. Larry was very critical and helpful of my writing and taught me how to write objectively and remove bias from factual reports. He taught me the importance of double-checking sources and how to find answers that many left behind or were hidden between the lines. Overall I am very grateful for the opportunity that Kappa Alpha Order has given me.

nterning at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), during an election year, is definitely one of the most interesting things I’ve done. I work with the Political and Communications Departments, and I’m primarily responsible for assisting staff members in efforts regarding Congressional elections for the Republican Party. A typical day in the Political Department will involve analyzing data in relation to polling and candidate favorability, updating how our Congressional candidates are progressing in their elections, and keeping their respective districts up-to-date in relation to their campaign performance. In the Communications Department, I assist staff members with press-releases, political advertisements, and effective public relations through preparation for potential media coverage. It is truly a privilege to live in Washington, D.C., and to be able to experience firsthand the intensity of a heated election year, which is quite easy considering the NRCC headquarters is located less than one block from the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill. It is not uncommon for me to walk from the Capital South Metro Station and encounter a Congressman or two on my way to work. It is also not uncommon for me to stroll down the sidewalk near the area and see major media outlets, such as CNN and Fox News, preparing to broadcast a political meeting or relevant event.

After reading my e-mail I walked about five minutes to the nearest metro station where I would commute to either one of two offices. At the office with Lisa Spies and Elizabeth Conatser I would complete tasks such as updating the LS group website or updating contact lists of constituents. On multiple occasions I volunteered at fund-raisers working under Gretchen Moss preparing events and making sure everything ran smoothly. Through these events I was able to socialize and meet people such as Congresswoman Barbara Comstock, Governor Nikki Haley, and Senator Marco Rubio. This was my favorite part of my job.

“With the Washington Monument as the backdrop, having the opportunity to meet these elected officials was an experience I’ll never forget.” But, the fund-raisers were my favorite aspect of the internship. Fund-raising activities pick up significantly over the summer, especially in an election year. As a result, there was an average of one to two fund-raisers per week, all for members of the U.S. House of Representatives or the Senate. Fund-raisers would usually start after work around 6pm, so I would stay after the regular workday ended. I helped furnish the tables on the terrace, and coordinated the setup effort with the caterers and bartenders. Then, once the fund-raiser started, I could take part in

the socializing, as long as I stayed until the festivities had ended, so I could lock up the office. The fund-raisers allowed me to meet an awesome cast of people. My first day, I met Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina. Throughout the summer I would meet: Jeb Bush Jr., Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Rep. Kevin Yoder, Rep. Jeff Denham, Rep. Mark Sanford, former Governor and Senator John Hoeven, Rep. Michael McCaul, Rep. Mark Pocan, Rep. Hal Rogers, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, among others. With the Washington Monument as the backdrop, having the opportunity to meet these elected officials was an experience I’ll never forget. My experience in Washington, D.C., was awesome. I’m not sure I would change a thing. The location of our apartment, just north of the Lincoln Memorial and just west of the White House, was second to none. My internship was rewarding and I had the opportunity to meet several members of Congress. I saw a ton of what D.C. has to offer, including the major monuments and memorials, several Smithsonian Museums, a Washington Nationals baseball game, and the National Zoo. We went boating on the Potomac River one weekend with Bill Skipper (Delta Tau– Francis Marion ’80) a strong supporter of the internship program, spent the evening at Stratford Hall, and visited Mount Vernon. The opportunity to present information on the internship to up-and-coming leaders at the Emerging Leaders Academy in Lexington that summer was also fulfilling.

Davis & Harman, a firm specializing in taxation, has been located on the 12th floor of the Willard Office Building since 1985. The Willard Office Building is attached to the original Willard Intercontinental Hotel, just one block east of The White House. I was fortunate enough to be able to walk to work every morning from our apartments on campus at the George Washington University. It was about a 12-minute walk, and I had the pleasure of passing the south side of the White House every morning. At Davis & Harman, I helped with an assortment of tasks. My cubicle was in the library, where tax filings and other tax reference books were kept. Usually once per week, I helped file new updates for the tax books. Luckily, I only had to replace pages—the contents looked like a foreign language to me. Other duties included ordering supplies for the office, helping the paralegals and attorneys with various housekeeping tasks, and prepping the office for fund-raising events. The office had a terrace, which had an outstanding view of the Washington Monument and the National Mall. The firm hosts a variety of events on the terrace, including fund-raisers for congressional candidates and other celebrations, such as an incredible Fourth of July party.

IN EARLY AUGUST 2016, JESSE BROWN (GAMMA OMEGA–MIDWESTERN STATE ’14) MADE THE MOST

significant announcement of his life yet. The recent graduate and 2016 Valedictorian of Midwestern State University announced that he would run for city council of the town that he had come to know so well. “Through my experiences here in Wichita Falls and Midwestern State University, I have developed a passion for this city and our community,” Jesse writes in his press release. “We must unite behind one common vision. We, as citizens, must come together in order to move Wichita Falls forward.” Other than his passion and vigor, what makes a twenty-two-year-old from Alford, Texas, qualified for city council of Wichita Falls, you might ask? In addition to studying Criminal Justice and Business, Jesse’s time at Midwestern State included serving various community projects in Wichita Falls with more than 340 volunteer hours. He served two terms as Number I and re-founding president of Gamma Omega chapter, earning such honors as Greek God, Greek Man of the Year, Most Outstanding Criminal Justice Major, and Clark Scholar of the Year. In June 2014, Jesse was appointed by Texas Governor Rick Perry as the Student Regent to serve on the MSU Board of Regents for the 2014–15 academic year. Brown is also a five-time recipient of the President’s Honor Roll, a member of both the Inter-Fraternity Council Judicial Board and Crime Stoppers Board, and a member in multiple honor societies including Golden Key, Alpha Chi, Alpha Phi Sigma, and Order of Omega. In addition, he was also voted a Delegate to the 2016 State Republican Convention, graduated Leadership Wichita Falls Class of 2015, and received the Undergraduate Award of Distinction from North-American Interfraternity Conference. Jesse was voted to serve on the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee as a 2015–16 student director, serving alongside two other KAs, with Larry Stanton Wiese as a Past President and Jim Estes as Treasurer. Throughout the summer of 2015, Jesse interned with the National Republican Congressional Committee as a participant of the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program, which is coordinated and funded by the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation. While in the capital of the free world, Jesse learned, firsthand, the need for strong leadership in public service. “The Kappa Alpha Order E. Fleming Mason Internship Program has been the best opportunity ever presented to me. I am from a small town in Texas that has a population of merely 1,000 people. Never in my wildest dreams did I imaging that I, a small town boy from Alvord, Texas, would be able to live, work, and learn in our Nation’s capital. This internship has opened my eyes to the bigger picture. It has allowed me to return home with a renewed sense of purpose and direction. I can guarantee that I am a better man because I was able to experience the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program.” Q: Why are you running for Wichita Falls City Council? A: I am running for Wichita Falls City Council because I am passionate about our city, I have a desire to serve my neighbors, and I see a need to preserve our history and culture for the next generation. I want to bring a fresh face and new ideas to City Hall and in doing so, reenergize our great city. Q: What experiences in KA and on campus gave you the confidence and knowledge to do this? A: In KA, I was blessed with the opportunity to help re-found the Gamma Omega chapter. I was sworn in as Number I my freshman semester and sent to NLI, ELA, Province Council, and many more leadership conferences that

KAJ_Fall16_18-43_Feat_P4.indd 34

developed and enhanced my skills. We were able to transform a chapter with 8 members and a poor GPA to a 45-member chapter (largest on campus) with a 3.02 GPA (highest on campus). The challenges we faced strengthened my resolve and abilities. From there, I became involved throughout campus, was appointed by Texas Governor Rick Perry to the Midwestern State Board of Regents, and ended my undergraduate career by being elected and serving as Student Government Association President. In these positions I reviewed budgets in excess of 100 million dollars, worked with community leaders on strategic planning, and witnessed the greater picture in life. Through all my involvements and accomplishments, I owe KA for

everything. The Order believed in a young cowboy from Alvord, Texas, who had raw abilities but no sense of direction. I am forever proud to have the title of KA. Q: Who are some of the KAs and others that you look up to for mentorship and guidance? A: There are many Brothers that I admire and strive to emulate. To keep this answer short, I will highlight only four. Larry Weise, Reno Gustafson, Mike Stokes, and Stewart Harvey. Larry Weise is my role model. He demands excellence from everyone around him. He works diligently and keeps the interest of the Order at the forefront of his decisions. Also, he is a Gamma Omega Alum and a legend at Midwestern State; my alma mater.

34

Reno Gustafson is a genuine KA. He is a former Wichitan of the Year and has given me amazing opportunities. Reno is one of my biggest supporters and I owe much of my success to his guidance and mentorship. He demonstrates the qualities of gentility and service every day and I aim to walk in his shoes. Finally, Mike Stokes and Stewart Harvey. These two gentlemen are Gamma Omega’s Alumni Advisors and I am daring enough to say they are the best in the Order! They were instrumental in leading our chapter’s re-founding. They mentor me and our active members and guide our chapter’s success. With them steering the ship, Gamma Omega was awarded 3 national chapter awards and many individual ones as well. They are hands’ on and directly benefit our active members. Q: How are KAs or your experience in general helping you in your campaign? A: Fellow members of the Order are assisting my campaign in a variety of capacities. My chapter brothers are hands’ on. They help knock on doors, hang signs, and cold call residents. I have three brothers working for my campaign; Dustin Whinery-Volunteer Coordinator, Andrew Gray-Policy Director and Tyler Garcia-Media Coordinator. Wichita Falls is heavily populated with KAs and they come out in full force to support a Brother. Gamma Omega Alums as well as other KAs have donated resources to fuel my campaign financially. They have also helped build my reputation to residents in our community. Q: What would be your number one platform plank for a run at the Presidency? A: If I had to run for President my number one platform would be to bring back the values of our nation. The values of hard work, reverence, respect, and hope. I believe we have strayed from our roots as a nation and our current societal issues are the result. I admire the Greatest Generation for everything they achieved. They were not perfect but they held tight to American values that made them great. We are not them but we can learn much from their actions and work ethics. They faced the biggest evil our world has ever seen and they won. They won because all of them knew the difference between right and wrong; and they were willing to work for what was right.

Making a Difference with Data Chris Wilson (Beta Eta–Oklahoma '89) has led his own firm and a Presidential campaign with an innovative approach. by Brent Buswell (Beta Eta–Oklahoma ’09) FROM AN EARLY AGE, CHRIS WILSON (BETA ETA–OKLAHOMA ’89)

“When you’re trying to elect the next President of the United States, every part of it is rewarding, and it’s making a difference.” — Chris Wilson

(BETA ETA–OKLAHOMA ’89)

KAJ_Fall16_18-43_Feat_P4.indd 36

has always had a zeal for politics. When Chris was just eight years old, his parents took him to a rally for Gerald Ford at the airport in Lawton, Oklahoma, during the 1976 Presidential election. Little did he know at the time, but 40 years later, Chris would become Director of Research and Analytics for another Presidential campaign, that of Texas Senator Ted Cruz. While working for Cruz, he oversaw all polling, data analytics, modeling, and digital strategy. With more than 20 years in polling and research, Wilson helped to consult and direct the Cruz campaign with the use of data and analytics, even predicting the Cruz victory in Iowa before the votes were even cast. By using data from psychological targeting, Wilson and his team were able to profile potential supporters, providing specially tailored messages, phone calls, and visits. From consumer habits and car ownership to magazine subscriptions and Facebook data, the polling and analysis guided where Cruz should travel and on which topics he should focus his message. “When you’re trying to elect the next President of the United States, every part of it is rewarding, and it’s making a difference,” Wilson said. “It sounds cliché, but it’s real, and what we’re doing here matters.” Separate from his work with Ted Cruz, Chris is founder and CEO of Wilson Perkins Allen (WPA) Opinion Research, a leading research and analytics firm. Since its inception, WPA has done work for more than 100 of the Fortune 500 companies and been involved in work for more than 100 current and former members of the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, along with gubernatorial and statewide officials across the nation. Prior to starting WPA, Chris was the Global Director of Research for Weber Shandwick International, where he conducted market research for Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, American Airlines, Kodak, Wells Fargo, and Boeing.

JOURNAL: How’d you get involved in politics?* CHRIS WILSON: While I was at OU, I attended The Leadership Institute, a nonpartisan, national educational foundation started by former Reagan administrator Morton Blackwell to teach political technology. In Oklahoma, it was hosted by ORU. We didn’t know it, but they were evaluating kids as they went through and pulled a few of us aside to work in political campaigns as youth coordinators. Later, when I was attending summer school in Georgetown in D.C., in hopes of transferring there, I called up Morton, who invited me, along with a Virginia gubernatorial candidate, to his home for dinner. I took that fall semester off to work on the Virginia campaign. We lost by less than one vote in every precinct. And by taking that semester off, I’d lost any chance to get into Georgetown. I went back to OU and subsequently

worked for the Conservative Leadership PAC, recruiting and training youth coordinators for 40 campaigns nationwide. Initially, I thought I’d go to law school. But then I fell in love with economics and was too far into my letters degree to change majors. JOURNAL: Where’d you work before WPA?*

KAJ_Fall16_18-43_Feat_P4.indd 37

JOURNAL: How do you poll behaviors and messaging?* WILSON: Through contracted controlled, random cellphone surveys of generally 300 or more. For every voter, we have 5,000 pieces of information. The trick is to find something the voters care about if you campaign door-to-door or otherwise. In Iowa, the local issue was Cruz’s shared desire to end a state ban on fireworks sales. Volunteers saved precious time by knocking only on doors of likely Cruz voters who might need a nudge to go to the polls. Every other poll in Iowa showed us losing Iowa but

ours. Ted, who was nervous, said we better be right and we were exactly right. The best compliment we’ve had is from the former campaign manager for Obama, who said our campaign is the most buttoned-up, technologically driven campaign since the 2008 Obama campaign. JOURNAL: What kind of work does your company do for your clients? WILSON: In short, we are a data firm. While many of our clients still use WPA for market research (survey research and focus groups), we have aggressively moved into big data (predictive modeling, analytics, and data targeting) and employ several Ph.D.-level data scientists. JOURNAL: How has your KA experience helped you reach where you are now? WILSON: Being a KA instilled in me very important values that guide me to this day. Further,

37

the relationships I built as a KA continue to the present. Many of my clients have been KAs. If I learn a job applicant is a KA, they have to try not to get hired. We provide multiple internships to KAs. To me, that’s what brotherhood is about. JOURNAL: In what ways do you continue to stay involved with KA? WILSON: I serve on our [Beta Eta] chapter housing board and contribute financially. I’ve helped my chapter at OU use many of the digital techniques we pioneered on the Cruz campaign during rush this year. * These questions and responses are from an article by Paula Burkes of the Daily Oklahoman.“Executive Q&A: Oklahoman heads polls, analysis, and strategies for presidential hopeful”

WILSON: I joined Tom Cole’s polling firm in ‘92 and in ‘94, ran the successful Indiana campaign of former U.S. Rep. David McIntosh. Then, at age 26, I accepted my first full-time job as executive director of the Republican Party in Texas. In 1996, I went to work for Bob Dole’s polling firm in D.C., which was my first opportunity to poll for a presidential campaign. Funny. The home I rented was formerly rented by a Democratic consultant, and these FedEx packages kept arriving containing complex customized statistics that were far more

advanced than the Republican side. It was like we were taking a knife to a gunfight. I learned how to use behavioral science and big data at a D.C. public relations firm, Weber Shandwick, that found me. Our clients included Coca-Cola, airlines, and a candidate for the prime minister of Turkey.

thunderstorms, an historic fl od hit areas of West Virginia and nearby parts of Virginia, resulting in 23 deaths. Rivers crested well over fl od stages, entire homes were fl oded to the roof, and entire small communities were swept away. In just half a day, 8 to 10 inches of rain fell and accounted for the seventh Deadliest fl od in West Virginia history. At helm of the state was KA alumnus and Governor, Earl Ray Tomblin. There are 55 counties in West Virginia. Governor Earl Tomblin (Alpha Rho–West Virginia ’71) declared a state of emergency, which has since been extended multiple times, in 44 of them and ordered the deployment of over 400 members of the West Virginia National Guard. Search and rescue teams were called to action and canvassed the state. President Barack Obama declared West Virginia a major disaster area, and ordered aid for the victims. And this was just the beginning. Gov. Tomblin and his team went to work interacting with the federal government for assistance, coordinating local and statewide responses needed from every department, and early on, they began looking to the future on how to best assist West Virginia in recovering from such a devastating

CHAPTER SPOTLIGHT:

Fortitude for Lins Barwick

Brothers of Tau chapter at Wake Forest University”

Wake Forest: The Tau chapter rallied for thir brother Lins (2nd from left, front).

ON JUNE 11, LINS BARWICK (TAU–WAKE Forest ‘15) was returning to campus after walking two female friends home when he was the victim of a robbery and was shot in the torso. “When I was shot, the bullet fractured my spine and sent a bunch of bone fragments into my spinal cord, which bruised and damaged the nerves that control my entire right leg,” Barwick said. During his recovery, the local community, Wake Forest University, and, especially, the brothers of Tau chapter rallied behind him to show their support in several different ways. Tau chapter has designed and launched a t-shirt fundraiser to help Lins and his family with medical expenses. The “Lins Strong” shirts with “IVtitude” (fortitude being a play off of Lin’s full name, Plato Collins Barwick IV) on the back have collected nearly $20,000 in funds and donations.

KAJ_Fall16_44_55_CampusAlumni_P4.indd 44

Despite several surgeries and an extensive recovery, Lins encouraged his friends, family, and the community to support another cause, one that is close to his heart. Earlier this year on a premedical internship in Ghana, Lins met a young girl named Angel Komenda with cerebral palsy, and more than $26,000 has been raised for her care.

“It was a nice way of supporting me and my recovery because it was something I could look at it and understand and look forward to implementing when I got better,” Barwick said.

Force in the Mountains By David Sherrill Oaks “This book is the second about my 5th great uncle and his family. To have ancestors that provided important help to the formation of the new nation is truly an honor,” says Oaks. Force in the Mountains mixes fiction with nonfiction, and family history. Force refers to Nature, pioneers, native Indian tribes, Melungeons, and the English. The pioneers, of whom the Sherrill people belonged, wanted their own government while the English wanted the pioneers to bend to their every whim and tax rules. They started their lives in America just when America was first getting known to the world. English rule resisted the American colonies’ thirst for becoming independent. Some of the settlers were loyal to the King of England while some Indian tribes also expressed a degree of loyalty to the King. These developments led to increasing tension between the settlers and the English. The Battle of Kings Mountain proved to be the turning point of the Revolution for America. Available on Amazon.com

5 Ways to Give Back to Kappa Alpha Order

1

CASH GIFTS

The most convenient and frequently used method of supporting the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF) is a gift of cash – personal check, credit card authorization or money order – made payable to the KAOEF and mailed to P.O. Box 1865, Lexington, VA 24450. Online donation can also be made through the KAOEF website (www.kaoef.org).

APPRECIATED SECURITIES

A gift of your appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares is an ideal way support the KAOEF. The educational programs of the Order will benefit f om your support and you will receive a tax deduction for your contributions. In addition, transferring the securities prior to liquidation will help you avoid capital gains taxes. Please contact the KAOEF for personal assistance with the transfer of assets of this type.

REAL AND PERSONAL PROPERTY

Your real estate and other marketable personal items can be given to the KAOEF an outright gift. For tax purposes, the contributor may deduct the fair market value of the real estate. Items of personal property must be related to the KAOEF’s purpose and function to be fully deductible. For example, a brother can donate a percentage interest in a building to the KAOEF that can be sold and the proceeds would be directed to the KAOEF.

ANNUAL REPORT

’16 Recognizing the generosity and foresight of those who choose to embrace the vision of KA’s future

DEAR BROTHERS,

The 1865 Trust recognizes the generosity and foresight of those of you who choose to embrace the vision of KA’s future by making a meaningful planned gift to the KAOEF. Your entrance into the 1865 Trust bears powerful testimony to the charitable expressions of your values, ideals, and commitment to Kappa Alpha Order’s future. Membership in the 1865 Trust is obtained when provisions for a planned gift of $10,000 or more are made to the KAOEF. This past year the Trust welcomed two (2) new members to its ranks. There have been 165 brothers join the Trust since it was created in 1992 and we continue the quest to encourage brothers to leave a legacy to Kappa Alpha Order so that future generations of young men will have the same great opportunities that each of us have experienced.

In closing, I cannot emphasize more strongly how important it is that we are all committed. If you have any questions about the 1865 Trust, or if you wish to join the ranks of 165 other KA brothers who are already members, please contact Ben Satcher, Chief Development Office , either by phone, (540) 463-1865, or by e-mail, bsatcher@ka-order.org. Thank you for your continued support of the Order, and for making Kappa Alpha Order a lifelong commitment. Fraternally yours,

Idris Rhea Traylor, Jr.

Forever KA Can you put a price on your Kappa Alpha experience? The truth is, KA has given all of us more than we could ever repay. Forever KA is an opportunity for any member, active or alumnus, to begin to keep the connection for life. One of the key features of Forever KA is your ability to give money directly to your chapter. After you join the Loyal Order, or if you are already an existing member, one-third of each of your Forever KA contributions will fund a restricted chapter endowment account for your preferred chapter.

The Foundation Chapter program is an effort for current active brothers to support the KAOEF, and commit themselves to helping ensure that the programs they currently enjoy and benefit from will continue for future members of their chapter. Three (3) Chapters representing more than 196 undergraduate brothers each gave $18.65 per man, contributing $3,670.50 to the KAOEF this Fiscal Year. These funds are used to support the Order’s leadership programs and training initiatives, and to provide scholarship dollars to our active brothers.

Bid for Brotherhood Sweeps the Plains for Success OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA, PLAYED HOST TO THE 19TH ANNUAL BID FOR BROTHERHOOD

(B4B) on Friday, July 29, 2016. Held at V2 atop the Devon Tower, more than 100 active and alumni brothers and their guests enjoyed food, fun, and fellowship while taking in spectacular views of Oklahoma City. The generosity of these attendees, and online bidders from all over the country, helped to raise nearly $53,000 for the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF). The last available Commemorative Uberti/Winchester 1873 rifl , commissioned for the Sesquicentennial, and tickets to Super Bowl LI in Houston highlighted a wide variety of items available for bid as part of both the live and silent auctions. Other items included several vacation packages, tickets for sporting events, KA apparel and accessories, and even a signed pair of shoes worn by NBA star Chris Paul during his 2005–06 Rookie of the Year season. Since 1998, more than $840,000 has been raised through B4B. These funds support leadership education programs and scholarships for our undergraduate brothers. Mark your calendars for the 20th Annual Bid for Brotherhood, to be held in St. Louis, Missouri, on Friday, July 28, 2017, in conjunction with the 77th Convention.

Chapter Eternal

The Order Mourns the Loss of Three National Leaders

Irvin Sutherland Barnard

Vance E. Rule

James C. Young

Barnard was born on September 5, 1925, in Richmond, Virginia. He graduated from John Marshall High School and then received his bachelor’s degree from Randolph-Macon College and his master’s degree from New York University. He served as a medic in the U.S. Army in WWII and was a Purple Heart recipient. He taught at Hopewell High School, where he met his former wife and mother of his children, Nancy Butterworth. He later became an insurance agent, which took him to Chicago, New Orleans, Charlotte, and eventually, back to Richmond, where he started his own business, Barnard Insurance Agency (BIA) that he managed until 1971. Barnard served as Ammen Province Commander from 1960 until 1969 and then Councilor from 1969 to 1971. He was also a 60-year member of Richmond Lodge No. 10, AF & AM, serving as Worshipful Master, and member of Welborne United Methodist Church and the American Legion. He was also active in the National Tobacco Festival for many years before it ended. Irving passed away on May 17, 2016, but his KA legacy is survived by his grandson John H. “Harrison” Vance (Delta Omicron– Clemson ‘14).

Rule enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps, completing flight school as WWII was ending. He attended William Jewell College on the G.I. Bill, graduating in 1949. Professionally, following service to various corporations, he entered the fastener industry in 1963, purchasing a small nut and bolt supply company. Rule Fasteners grew to become a manufacturing company stocking more than 19,000 items for wholesale and retail trade in the south central United States. He served as the Philip B. Hamer Province Commander, was a member of the Howard P. Locke Province Court of Honor, and received the Knight Commander’s Accolade from Knight Commander Reynolds S. Cheney. One of the largest donors to the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation (KAOEF), and its predecessor, the Kappa Alpha Scholarship Fund (KASF), Vance served as a Trustee of the KASF, from 1996 to 2003, and as a founding Trustee of the KAOEF in 1982. He supported the KAOEF’s Headquarters Campaign, the Honoring Our Past, Securing Our Future Campaign, and the Sesquicentennial Campaign, and was a member of the Crimson & Gold Society. He also funded in full the KAOEF’s Vance Rule Scholarship. Rule passed away at the age of 91 in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, on July 10. He is survived by five children, including Randall (Beta Xi–Oklahoma State ’70) and Bruce (Mu–Tulsa ’74).

After graduating from the Missouri Military Academy, Young enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving during the Korean War. After his service, he attended Oklahoma City University where he served as Number I and met his wife, Carol. The two married and moved to Atlanta, Georgia. Young graduated from Georgia State University in 1963. Young served the Order for more than seventeen years in several capacities. Beginning in September 1956, he served as western regional adviser and then as an alumni secretary. He also served as director of the Centennial Campaign and treasurer of the Kappa Alpha Scholarship Fund (KASF). In September 1962, Young published his first issue as editor of The Kappa Alpha Journal. He would serve as editor for a total of seven years, publishing 29 issues. From 1971 to 1974, he served as Commander of Philip B. Hamer Province, also serving on the Executive Council throughout 1974. Professionally, Young worked in Oklahoma City as director of marketing for Aero Commander and the Oklahoma City Restaurant Group, in Tulsa as director of marketing for Combustion Engineering, and in Houston as Director of Marketing & Communications for Combustion Engineering Oil & Gas Group. After retiring, he started his own marketing in firm in Houston, Texas. Young passed away at the age of 84 in Houston, Texas, on August 4. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Carol Gesford Young, son, James Charles Young, Jr., and daughter, Jennifer Lynn Young.

Our Legacy

Four Generations. Four Chapters. One Leagacy. Maternal Grandfather

Robert Fletcher Ormond (Phi–Birmingham-Southern College 1897), proudly wearing his membership badge as an active member of Alpha Alpha chapter at the University of the South.

Courtland Prentice Gray Jr. (Alpha Alpha–University of the South 1926), Courtland Gray was Number VI of his chapter, and, on the staff of The Mountain Goat. The publication is, still, dedicated to providing a creative and artistic outlet in the form of a literary magazine, published once a semester at Sewanee.

Son

Father

Editor’s Note: At time of publication, the family was looking into four more Ormonds who were in Phi chapter about the time of Robert Fletcher and other KAs in the family. Another KA in the family, Courtland Prentice Gray IV (Beta Lambda–Southern Methodist ’87) is Michael Gray’s cousin, and namesake of their grandfather from Alpha Alpha.

W. Eastland Gray (Gamma Nu–Louisiana-Monroe 1965). Gray visited the National Administrative Office at Mulberry Hill in May, with his wife Mary. He and Director of Development Andrew P. Carr scanned the archives to confirm both his father and grandfather were KA alumni. He already knew about his son’s membership. With photos from both he and The Journal archives, we pieced together his family KA tree.

From the Attic

Tech (1909–11) were discovered in the residence of the late Dr. and Mrs. Edward Burton Claxton in Dublin, Georgia, in 2014. As neither of the Claxtons had any known connection to Georgia Tech or to Kappa Alpha Order, their possession of these is a mystery. Their grandson, Edward B. Claxton III, gave them to his law school friend, James E. Elliott, Jr., (Alpha Sigma– Georgia Tech ’76). They were presented to the Alpha Sigma Chapter by Brothers Neel Fallis (Alpha Sigma– Georgia Tech ’74), Elliot, Joe Holley (Alpha Sigma– Georgia Tech ’76), Carl Harris (Alpha Sigma–Georgia Tech ’77), Barry Cox (Alpha Sigma–Georgia Tech ’78), Sam Moreton (Alpha Sigma–Georgia Tech ’78), Larry Fletcher (Alpha Sigma–Georgia Tech ’79), John U. Huffman (Alpha Sigma–Georgia Tech ’79), and Bill Olsen (Alpha Sigma–Georgia Tech ’79). Elliott and these men financed their restoration and re-framin . These now belong to the Alpha Sigma Chapter.

Remembering the Reason

By My Side By Jesse S. Lyons (Delta Alpha–Western Carolina ‘98) OUR VALUES BRING US TOGETHER AS A brotherhood and Order at the local chapter. Gentility, manifested clearly as reverence for woman, is of particular import. This personal consideration certainly extends beyond your college days. There is no better way to remember the reason than to have it exemplified in a wonderful example of lifetime commitment.

In May, the National Administrative Office at Mulbe ry Hill received an online request for sheet music of our song, “Kappa Alpha Rose.” This is fairly common when members are getting married. Many of you reading this may remember having “the Rose” song sung at your wedding. This request, however, was not for an upcoming wedding. Rather, Dr. Reuel Hamilton, DMD, was re-learning the music. Reuel Hamilton, DMD, (Beta Omicron– Louisville ’53) and wife Virginia Satterly Hamilton, herself a sorority woman—Sigma Kappa, University of Louisville—were married on June 9, 1956. Six decades of marital bliss later, they held a celebration reception for friends and family on June 5, 2016, at St. James Episcopal Church in Marietta, Georgia. Reuel punctuated the celebration that day by singing “Kappa Alpha Rose” for his 60-year bride. For this occasion, he altered the words just a bit and was happy to provide his second verse: Those college days are memories now, but she is mine e’er true. For 60 years I’ve loved her, through days both bright and blue. She’s the greatest joy I’ve ever known. I’ll keep her by my side. For my dear sweet KA sweetheart’s still my Kappa Alpha bride. This is one brother who has kept his obligations both to KA and his Rose, for his life.
