from the PRESIDENT Brothers, As your recently elected national president I look forward to serving Kappa Delta Rho as we continue together to build on our legacy through careful growth and the expansion of services we offer our undergraduate and alumni Brothers. It is my goal to continue to grow the Fraternity while making it stronger. To accomplish this I am fortunate to have a very dedicated Board of Directors who are focused and dedicated to making Kappa Delta Rho the best that it can be. To this end we are working to align better our educational programs across the Regional Conclaves, the William Leadership Academy, and the review of The Path new member program. Also this year, we will be revising our Constitution to ensure our compliance with SarbanesOxley federal regulations. Another ongoing effort is that of KDR’s strategic plan. This task was started by Brother Shawn Hoke and continues through a committee representing a cross section of KDR alumni and undergraduates. They are working hard to develop a five-year plan for the board to review at its mid-year meeting. The draft plan will formally document our vision for the future, and provide a roadmap that the Fraternity will use in years to come. Also important to the continued success of Kappa Delta Rho is the involvement of you, our undergraduate and alumni Brothers. If you have not recently visited the KDR website,
I encourage you to do so. In it you will find interesting facts and information as well as opportunities to get involved. Currently, we are seeking feedback on the “Brother’s Only” section of the site, and would appreciate any comments you have to offer. We also encourage prospective employers to list job opportunities on the website for the perusal of our Brothers who may be seeking employment. Send any suggestions regarding the website or employment opportunities to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your voice can also be heard by the National Fraternity when you provide feedback on our survey that will be available in the spring edition of the Quill & Scroll. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to provide guidance that is vital in the continuing development of our National Fraternity. In October, I had the opportunity to spend Homecoming with the Eta Chapter to rededicate their newly renovated chapter house. I met with and talked to several Eta Chapter members dating back to the 1950s, and I was impressed by the dedication of these Brothers to the success of their chapter and to Kappa Delta Rho. Such dedication and effort is a shining example of how Kappa Delta Rho is for life. Finally, my thoughts center on our Brothers who are serving our country abroad as well as their families, and also to those who may be experiencing hardships during these difficult economic times. Join me as we turn our thoughts to what we are doing, and what we could be doing to better ourselves, our campuses, our local communities, and even our Fraternity. Let us always remember that we are better and stronger together, and may the New Year bring us closer to being the people and Fraternity we strive to be.
Fraternally, Brian J. Stumm Iota Beta ’92

Kappa Delta Rho Partners With B+ Foundation to Increase Cancer Awareness by Katie Wilson To help fight pediatric cancer and make the words “your child has cancer” a little more bearable, The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation attended the KDR National Convention this past summer to work with chapters around the country to raise awareness, funds, and spread the B+ message. We knew a partnership with KDR would create a perfect pairing, as both organizations strive to practice a similar attitude and motto. It is our goal to give children fighting cancer exceptional role models who are able to make a difference in their lives and empower them to keep fighting. We found these role models in the KDR Brothers. The B+ (Be Positive) Foundation was born out of tragedy after Andrew McDonough passed away from complications of leukemia on July 14, 2007, at age 14. Andrew’s blood type and the family’s motto was, and continues to be, “B+ — Be Positive.” The goals of the B+ Foundation are: 1. Keep the “B+” message alive 2. Provide financial assistance for oncology families of critically ill children around the country. 3. Sponsor research for improved chemotherapy and ultimately a cure for childhood cancer. Since our first meeting this past July, the outreach and support from KDR chapters around the country has been overwhelming. Through a lot of hard work, passion, and creativity the Alpha Beta Chapter at the University of Delaware put on a Haunted House for B+ Heroes (local children fighting cancer), their families, and the university community. Brothers raised money through ticket sales and raffle prizes. The Haunted House also included pumpkin carving, bobbing for apples, and other
traditional fall games. Attracting more than 280 guests and raising more than $830. Overall, it was a great fall fundraiser that allowed the B+ Heroes to take a step outside their daily battle and celebrate Halloween like any other children. Six-year-old B+ Hero Molly’s family said, “Thanks so much for the invite to the Haunted House, Molly had fun and is still talking about it.” We are looking forward to being the beneficiary of the Sigma Beta Chapter Miss Red Rose Pageant on March 31, 2011. Brothers have already begun planning the event that incorporates multiple Greek organizations on their campus. The Psi Chapter at Lycoming College has teamed up with Beta Phi Gamma sorority to host Open Mic Night to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer this coming spring. In addition, the presidents of both organizations are working on a business plan to support foundations outreach into university communities all across the country. In addition, the Beta Gamma Chapter at Radford University is planning a B+ 5k for the spring semester. We are also discussing possible events with Kappa Beta Chapter at Edinboro University and the Gamma Beta Chapter at Virginia Tech for the spring 2011 semester. We are confident that these events will become KDR traditions and grow on every campus. We will be presenting two awards next August at the 100th National Convention. One award is for the event that raises the most money, and the second award is for the most creative program by a chapter. By continuing to work together, we will make a difference in the lives of many children and their families battling cancer.
Molly’s Story Molly is an inspirational six-year-old who was diagnosed with leukemia (ALL) in May 2008. Molly loves superheroes, baby dolls, and scaring nurses with her puppet monkey, Bananas. Molly received her last chemotherapy treatment on September 26, 2010. She was selected to be recognized as a Hero at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night event at AI DuPont Hospital in Wilmington. In her speech, Molly wrote, “I hope one day no kid ever has to get cancer.” Although she will not be considered cured until 2015, she is happy being cancer free!

Cancer remains the #1 disease killer of America’s children — more than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, asthma, and AIDS combined.
The Andrew McDonough Story Andrew McDonough was an elite athlete and straight A student in 2007. On a Saturday in January 2007, the high school freshman from Wilmington, Delaware, helped his club soccer team win the Pennsylania Indoor Soccer State Championship. Less than 48 hours later, Andrew was diagnosed with leukemia and his body went into septic shock and cardiac arrest. The doctors told Andrew’s family that he would not live through the night. They didn’t know how tough Andrew was! Over the next 166 “bonus days,”,Andrew underwent nearly 50 surgical procedures, endured four strokes, a brain aneurysm, meningitis, and numerous other challenges. At 1:55 p.m. on July 14, 2007, Andrew passed away at the age of 14. Two weeks before Andrew’s hospitalization, out of the blue, he asked his father, “What’s my blood type?” His dad didn’t know. Once they got into the hospital, they found out that Andrew’s blood type was B+ — Be Positive. It was only fitting as that is the way that Andrew lived . . . before his illness and during his valiant battle. Hence, the name “The B+ Foundation”. It is the goal of The B+ Foundation to cure all kinds of childhood cancers and to help families of children with cancer all across the country. The Andrew McDonough story is one of triumph in the face of tragedy. The brave fight that Andrew, his family and friends, and thousands of caring neighbors and supporters across the country waged now stands testament to the power of the human spirit. Today, there is a new movement inspired by the outpouring of support that the McDonough family received. “Do Good.” It’s a simple principle of care and compassion that defines the mission of The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation. Andrew’s legacy is one of love, kindness, faith, and enduring spirit. The B+ Foundation honors Andrew’s life by helping families in many ways. Some are facing the unimaginable crisis of having a child with cancer and are in need of financial support. Many are praying that the pediatric cancer research grants will yield a cure. And, still others are changing their lives by choosing a path of positivity and outreach to others. The B+ Foundation is growing and the good being done is astonishing. In its short tenure the organization has: • Awarded Family Assistance Program grants to hundreds of families. In 2010 alone, the foundation gave out more than $250,000 to 350 families in 36 states. • Received support from thousands of donors and corporate and foundation grants. • After a nationwide search, awarded a six-figure research grant for pediatric cancer research Part of the B+ mission is to facilitate the notion of kids helping kids fight cancer. Our college philanthropy program prides itself on not only drawing funds and spreading childhood cancer awareness but also pairing B+ Heroes (local children with cancer) with fraternities and sororities all over the country. One hundred percent of what chapters raise is donated to the cause!

August 5-8, 2010 • Newport News, VA The 99th National Convention and 2010 Williams Leadership Academy
Anchored In Values by A. Shane Henry, Zeta Beta ’09 On Thursday morning, August 5, 2010, the National Office staff with the help of the six selected convention interns, Austin Archer from Beta Gamma, Kyle Bamford from Iota Beta, Kevin Rudnick from Beta Gamma, Nolan Serafin from Pi Alpha, Cameron Beasley from Phi Beta, and Bryan Field from Beta Gamma, were hurriedly making the last few preparations for the kick-off of the 99th National Convention and Elmon M. Williams Leadership Academy. The week leading up to this day had been filled with turning the Newport News Marriott at Center City into a gathering spot for Kappa Delta Rho Brothers from across nation. Excitement built as the Board of Directors, trustees, alumni, and Undergraduate Brothers all began arriving and picking up their registration packets signifying the start of our leadership academy. The theme for the convention was Anchored in Values with all of the educational programming designed to help our undergraduate Brothers continue down their path of being value-based men. The opening session began with Woody Woodcock from Phired-up Productions presenting his program on social excellence. Following Woodcock’s presentation, delegates broke out into regional meetings where they worked with facilitators to discuss the opening session further. The facilitators for the academy included Scott Bradley, Zeta Beta ’99; Matthew Lenno, Alpha Beta ’95; JR Rees, Nu ‘01; Peter Tartaro, Lambda Beta ’00; and Brian Winters, Iota Alpha ’88. Throughout the leadership academy facilitators played an instrumental role leading program follow-up conversations with their regions as well as discussions from the selected reading of James C. Hunter’s The Servant: A Simple Story about the True Essence of Leadership. Delegates were mailed a copy of the book at the start of summer and asked to read it in order to build on their knowledge of leadership ethics and application in a practical college or work setting. With regional meetings wrapping up, for the next two sesBrother Ricardo Louis, Iota Beta ’12 beating to his own drum at the Drum Circle session at Elmon M. Williams Leadership Academy.

sions undergraduate delegates had the option to choose what program to attend that would best benefit them and their chapter. Program options were varied and included such things as How to Keep Facebook From Being a Liability, Understanding Bystander Behavior, Leading-creating Social Change, and Living in the Greek Community – It’s All Greek to Me. After several rounds of education sessions and splitting up into respective regional meetings it was time for everyone to come back together and enjoy the opening banquet with key note speaker, Andrew Barth, Nu Alpha ’83. Following Brother Barth’s speech delegates were released to finish the evening with one last round of sessions. For this group of sessions delegates had their choice between Taking Ritual Beyond the Robes, Working With Alumni, Understanding and Managing Problem Brothers, or What To Do When a Brother Is in Trouble. The last item on the agenda for day one was another breakout into regions where everyone had one final opportunity to discuss everything they had experienced that day. Day two of the academy began with a high-strung and passionate presentation, Hazed and Confused, by Erle Morring with Campusspeak Inc. In his presentation Morring took us through his personal experience of losing his little brother to fraternity hazing. Delegates had an opportunity to discuss this emotional presentation in their regional breakout groups later that morning. The rest of the afternoon was spent with delegates navigating through various sessions with topics that ranged from How to Truly Live Our Values, Learning Path Best Practices, Transition Retreats, to KDR Drum Circle. We finished the Elmon M. William Leadership Academy with one last regional breakout and event discussion. quill & scroll

Eta Chapter Completes Historic Renovation by William J. Paris, Eta ’87
The Eta Chapter house was built in 1927 and is officially listed as a National Historic Landmark. For more than 80 years it has housed 35 Eta Chapter Brothers. In September 2003, faced with an upcoming fire sprinkler code requirement, the Eta House Corporation Board officially voted to create a Building Committee to explore options to either renovate or replace the historic house.
Brothers and alumni admire the newly renovated interior of
William Paris ’87 and Christopher Jahn ’97, were named cochairmen Eta House. of the Building Committee. Helped by Mark Winter ’78, Bob McCormick ’79, and Brian Vladovich ’97, the committee explored complete replacement of the house. It was determined that the cost projections at more than $3,000,000 would be beyond our budget. Various renovation concepts were prepared and evaluated along with the individual cost projections.
At the same time, the Eta board contracted with a firm to undertake a feasibility study to explore the potential of conducting a successful capital campaign among the Eta alumni. After a seven-month study, the firm determined that we could successfully raise at least $700,000. With an extensive campaign effort chaired by Ken Krynicki ’72, and Scott Burns ’97, Eta has, to date, raised gifts and pledges of more than $1,050,000 from 225 Brothers. Demolition of the interior of the house began in August 2009. The most challenging undertaking was redesigning the interior to incorporate an elevator to comply with ADA access laws. During the course of the project we discovered the main living room floors had sunk more than an inch and had to be jacked up and reinforced as directed by the structural engineer. We discovered several places where asbestos abatement specialists were contracted to remove asbestos containing materials. The south tower stairs were found to have been severely damaged by termites and were rebuilt. As part of the overall plan we sought to review all use of space throughout the house to maximize the living space in the building. Walls were moved and six new single rooms were incorporated on the second floor. The bathrooms were completely redesigned to incorporate shower stalls and greater capacity. Dining and meeting spaces were expanded. The kitchen was completely renovated to serve as a catering kitchen. A new laundry and weight room were incorporated. Of particular interest, the existing radiator heating system was removed and replaced with a two-pipe heating/cooling system with individual fan coil units in each room allowing the building to be heated and cooled throughout. The active chapter, today, has more than 90 undergraduate members. In August, 35 moved into the newly renovated house. On October 23, at Homecoming, the Eta Alumni Corporation held an official ribbon cutting ceremony. We were pleased to host Brian Stumm, Iota Beta ’92, the national president of KDR as well as Ashley Dye, director of Greek Life for the university. The day ended with a dedication banquet where all of the Brothers, volunteers, and contractors who made the project possible were recognized and thanked for their years of hard work that lead to the successful completion of the historic $1.8 million project.

Brotherhood and Accountability: A Follow-up by Jon Kapell, Eta Beta ’95, Vice President of Standards and Risk Management This past spring I wrote an article about brotherhood and accountability with the help of some Brothers who have been involved with the National Fraternity for several years. In that article, I spoke about the need to hold ourselves and one another accountable for our actions regardless of the inconvenience it may have on our lives, our membership in the Fraternity . . . or on our friends and Brothers.
On a much more positive side, the judiciary section of the Fraternity by-laws have been updated to make for a more fluid process that helps Fraternity members hold themselves accountable. As we discussed at our business meeting during the National Convention, by upgrading our governing documents we are continuing to be good stewards of the fraternal community movement.
Since that time we have adjudicated many situations where members of our fraternal order did not accept that what was relayed in that article was true. In the reorganization of one of our chapters, 36 men were removed as Brothers from the Kappa Delta Rho membership rolls. In that same chapter there were strong allegations of hazing activities, which resulted in several other members being placed on suspension until the time they graduate from their university. These men admitted their wrongdoing but requested that they not be held accountable for their actions. As I wrote in the spring/summer issue of the Quill & Scroll, if members of this Fraternity do not hold themselves accountable, they are leaving the national Judiciary Committee no choice but to do this on their behalf.
The current members of the Judiciary Committee are:
• Jon Kapell, Vice President of Standards and Risk Management, Eta Beta ’95
• Scott Bradley, Vice Chair of the Standards and Risk Management Committee, Zeta Beta ’96
• Scott Smaniotto, Vice President of Finance and Administration, Alpha Beta ’93
• Michael Edwards, Epsilon Beta Alumni Advisor, Epsilon Beta ’00
• Grant Hempel, Past Undergraduate Board of Director, Theta ’09
I realize this must sound like “doom and gloom” and that is not the intention of this follow-up. We are finding some of our chapters holding their members responsible for their actions and we applaud them for what they are doing. In many of these cases, the national Judiciary Committee does not need to intervene since these chapters are demonstrating solid decision making and comprehension of what accountability truly means.
As always, if I or any member of the Judiciary Committee can help you or your individual chapters, do not hesitate to contact us. My e-mail address is email@example.com and I stand ready to assist you. For the full by-laws, visit the Brother’s Only section of the KDR website.
KDR Golf Tournament Benefits Camp Dreamcatcher by Seth Birch, Eta Beta ’06, President of the Eta Beta Alumni Association
The third annual Kappa Delta Rho Golf Tournament was held on Saturday, April 17, 2010, and was a huge success raising money for Camp Dreamcatcher. The tournament took place at the Wyncote Golf Club in Oxford, Pennsylvania, with 102 golfers teeing off at 12 p.m. to benefit Camp Dreamcatcher, a summer camp that benefits children who suffer from HIV/AIDS. The goal was to raise $2,500. Thanks to the support of KDR alumni and the Brotherhood we exceeded our expectations and raised a grand total of $4,339.07! Without the support of the devoted alumni and the hard work of the active KDR members, this would not have been possible. In just three years of holding the golf tournament, the National Fraternity of Kappa Delta Rho and the alumni of the Eta Beta chapter at West Chester University have been able to raised more than $10,000 for Camp Dreamcatcher. This would not be possible without the amazing support of alumni of the KDR Eta Beta Chapter. Overall, it was a phenomenal day that brought together hundreds of Brothers for a good cause.

Sigma Alumni Inspire Enthusiasm With BBQ and Zenner Initiation by Scott Mattravers, Sigma ’76 An historic event occurred on July 17, 2010, when Sigma Chapter reunited Brothers to the possible return of Sigma Chapter to Oregon State University. With the help and guidance of Kappa Delta Rho National Office staff members Suzanne McFarland and Joseph Rosenberg, Sigma initiated Todd A. Zenner (Pledge ’77) — the longest pledgeship in Sigma history. The idea was born during a monthly “Sigma Lunch” which began in January 2010. Subsequently it was was proposed to Todd’s Sigma Big Brother William Samples ’77, in May. Bill was responsible for getting Todd to the BBQ and then presenting him with the offer to become a fully initiated Brother. Todd, as we had hoped was very surprised and honored to be welcomed into the Brotherhood after having to leave Sigma and OSU more than 30 years ago. In order to keep the event a surprise there was a fairly short window of time to get the event scheduled. It still came off without a hitch and was attended by just about 30 Brothers with short notice. Two Brothers, Benjamin Kirk ’74, and Kenneth Moulton ’76, flew in from Southern California and a pledge Brother of Todd’s, Kevin Brandon ’78, visited from Anchorage, Alaska. Todd kept in touch with various Brothers throughout the years so it made sense to welcome him into the Brotherhood of KDR. Todd has already helped bring additional Brothers back into the Sigma loop and create more enthusiasm for future Sigma gatherings. The event helped give Sigma an opportunity to rally Brothers together and provide further indication of interest level of reconnecting for more Sigma alumni gatherings. The event was hosted by The Great Sigma Pledge Class of ’75 and hosted at the home of Brother Craig McClure ’76. Sigma alumni have since had one BBQ in Portland (September 4), Sigma Alumni Tailgaters at OSU footballs games on September 18, October 2, and the OSU Homecoming tailgater on October 30 attended by approximately 75 Brothers. Plans have been confirmed for the return of Sigma Founders Day event on May 14, 2011, in the Portland, Oregon area with KDR National Executive Director Joseph Rosenberg and National President Brian J. Stumm scheduled to attend. We are Sigma and we are coming back . . . TOGETHER! Brother Todd A. Zenner, Honorary, at the celebration after he was initiated into the National Fraternity this past fall.

STRATEGIC PLANNING Planning Strategically for Our Brotherhood by Gene Spencer, Iota ’76. Chair, Strategic Planning Committee To chart a course for a strong and positive future, an organization needs to have a good sense of where it is today, and where it wants to go. Without a roadmap for the future, any organization can waste time, squander resources, spin its wheels, and generally stay stuck in its current state. Few people want to be a part of an organization that is simply maintaining the status quo, and the Board of Directors of Kappa Delta Rho recognizes that our Fraternity will be able to accomplish much more if we take the time and effort to define a strategic plan that will drive our major activities for the next five years. Our strategic plan for 2011-14 is expected to set a strong sense of direction for the whole Fraternity, providing a focus for the national organization and staff, the Board of Directors, the foundation, active chapters, associated alumni groups, and the entire Brotherhood on key activities that support our core mission, vision, and values. Through this planning effort, Kappa Delta Rho will establish a new framework for its commitments of time, talent, and other resources toward the future we imagine and define together. Ten members of the Strategic Planning Committee have been appointed by the board to define this plan. Committee members representing the board are President Brian Stumm, Iota Beta ’92; Scott Smaniotto, Alpha Beta ’93; and Gene Spencer, Iota ’76 (chair). Active brothers serving on the committee are Imad Matini, Phi Beta ’11 and Deriek Iglesias, Zeta Beta ‘12. The alumni are represented by Paul Downes, Gamma ’68; Edward Curtis, Rho ’62; and William Johnston, Zeta ’63. Executive Director Joseph Rosenberg, Xi Alpha ’96, and past President Shawn Hoke, Phi Alpha ’95, are also members. As a Fraternity, we recognize that Kappa Delta Rho is a complex organization and that many people have a stake in its success. Certainly, our undergraduate Brothers want KDR to be a positive and worthwhile experience, as do their parents and other family members. Undoubtedly, our alumni have a vested interest in the success of the Fraternity, as we too are enriched by efforts to strengthen our Brotherhood. But there are many other stakeholders who must be considered (including potential new members, alumni/campus advisors, Greek life staff, and alumni and housing corporations, as well as the faculty, students, and administration of KDR’s host institutions). The opinions and ideas of our most critical stakeholders need to be solicited within the planning process and should also inform our decision making and priority setting in appropriate ways. By gathering broad input into our plan, we can capture an opportunity to move Kappa Delta Rho more strongly forward and allow us to accomplish all that is within our reach. The Strategic Planning Committee now needs your help. We invite all active and alumni Brothers to take a brief online survey to tell us about best past and present experiences with Kappa Delta Rho, and to tell us about your expectations and hopes for the future. What do you believe should be our most important focus? How do you believe our Brotherhood can be strengthened? How might our motto Honor Above All Things more fully ring true in our hearts and minds. We have created two separate surveys, one for active Brother and one for alumni to solicit your views and to provide guidance as we create this plan. You can access these surveys from the front page of the Fraternity’s website. We invite your best memories and stories about how KDR has affected your life. We need to understand your ideas for ways that it might serve future generations of young men. In addition to these surveys, the Strategic Planning Committee invites your comments and support via e-mail at StrategicPlanning@kdr.com; if you prefer to speak directly to a member of the committee, please call the national office at (800) 536-5371 and request a contact. With your help, ideas, and support, we can create a KDR strategic plan that helps turn our current activities into a more cohesive effort, bringing our history, our values, our educational goals, and all of the other benefits of Brotherhood to a new generation of young men, as well as to thousands of alumni who are proud to be Brothers of Kappa Delta Rho.
“A Step Closer ”
by Joseph S. Rosenberg, Xi Alpha ’96
On Saturday, December 11, 2010 the Group of Intent took one step closer to becoming the second chartered chapter in the State of Texas. They were notified that the Board of Directors approved their petition for Provisional Chapter Status and bestowed upon them the chapter designation of Epsilon Gamma. In a little less than one year, the interest group that was formed by Brother John Elliott, Zeta Beta ’09, has grown to 25 men and on the verge of petitioning for their charter. They are excepting to submit their petition to become a charter chapter of Kappa Delta Rho at the Mid-Year meeting of the Board of Directors in March. Plans have been made for the group to be chartered at the 100th National Convention which will be held in Irving, Texas at the Los Colinas Marriott from August 4 to 7. Under the mentorship of Brothers Zachary Russell, Zeta Beta ’03, John Elliott, Zeta Beta ’09, and Educational Leadership Instructor, Shane Henry, Zeta Beta ’09, they have developed into a strong Provisional Chapter that is a beacon of honor on the campus of the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. They have adopted the local chapter of the Boys and Girls club and are actively participating with Habitat for Humanity. In addition to their community service and philanthropic endeavors, they are developing new traditions on campus for the entire student body. Later this year they will be holding Chariots for Charity. The event will be a chariot race among the various student organizations on campus in an effort to raise money for local charities. Not only are the men looking forward to obtaining their charter but they are looking forward to moving into their own chapter house on campus. Preliminary discussions are taking place with the men and the administration of the college to provide the men with a possible townhouse. There are discussions for long term plans for the college to provide a tract of land for the chapter to have their own Greek Lodge. We hope you all can make plans to be at the 100th National Convention when the men of our Epsilon Gamma Chapter take the final step to becoming Brothers of Kappa Delta Rho.
Honor Super Omnia More Than Just a Motto by Cole O’Brien, Epsilon Gamma ’13 To me, Honor Super Omnia is more than just my Fraternity motto, it is a way of life. To live one’s life honorably and nobly must be the aim of all men. It shows character and personal strength. Also, it shows that you care about your fellow man before yourself and, therefore, are worthy of trust. If all men lived their lives honorably there would be less needless conflict in the world. If everyone attempted to be honest and selfless, life would be so much simpler. As an Eagle Scout, I already make an effort to put honor before all else. I treat others how I would wish to be treated. I think about how my actions would affect those around me before going through with them. I do what I can do to help others whenever possible and I am always ready to lend a hand to those who might need it. I am also always wary of how my behavior may reflect on those associated with me. Whenever I may misstep or make mistakes I am always sure to claim full responsibility for my actions. I never allow others to take the fall for things I have done. In truth, I do all I can to live my life according to our motto, and that was before ever hearing of it. So I will have no problem continuing to do so, and, should I pass this test, look forward to bearing that motto with pride. 14

CHAPTER NEWS Alpha Society, Middlebury College After much hard work and dedication, the Brothers of the Alpha Society have been successfully reinstated as a fully operating social house at Middlebury College. The Brothers went above and beyond their required sanctions, collaborating with the Office of Health and Wellness on alcohol education events such as the Beer Goggle Olympics, a Response-Ability workshop, a screening of Hazed, TIPS training, and hosting a campus-wide webinar on hazing which was also attended by various athletes and coaches. The Brothers have also been keeping up their active community service record, volunteering weekly at the local senior citizens center, carving pumpkins for local charities, and gleaning crops for the Vermont food shelf. We have also worked to foster community relations by inviting the neighborhood children and families to a Halloween party at our decorated haunted house. Overall, the Alpha Society is excited and prepared to keep the KDR tradition strong at Middlebury!
Beta Chapter, Cornell University It has truly been an exciting Fall Semester at Beta Chapter. We welcomed three new members to the KDR fold, and their journey through The Path has thus far been an inspiration to all members of our Brotherhood. This semester, we’re looking to improve our internal operations and recruitment. We are currently in the process of updating our Constitution and Bylaws to reflect better the standards of the KDR Gentleman and improve accountability in our Chapter. We are also developing more organized recruitment techniques, and our recruitment list grows with each passing day. Our younger members have grabbed fraternity life by the horns and have shown immense commitment to the prosperity of our chapter. The enthusiasm of our members has created an energy within the house, an energy that is distinctively Beta Chapter. We have begun reaching out to nearby chapters, most notably Iota Beta at RIT. In addition, our alumni continue to embody the notion that KDR is for life. This summer our Alumni Corporation kicked off the first ever KDR Family Picnic, an event that attracted Brothers new, old, and everywhere in between. We congratulate them for helping Beta Chapter achieve national recognition at convention with second place for the Donald C. Wolfe Award and third place for the Gino A. Ratti Award. We are grateful for their continued support and wisdom. The ties of Brotherhood run deep at Beta Chapter, and our members continue to uphold the principles established by our Founders.
Epsilon Chapter, Franklin College The semester has been one of growth for Epsilon Chapter. We are happy to call nine more men Brothers. We have also been very active with our philanthropy work. We have raised more than five hundred dollars for the Boys and Girls Club of Johnson County with our pancake breakfast and our movie date night raffle. We just completed a philanthropy event at the end of the fall semester where we made stockings, ornaments, and Christmas cards
to send to a platoon. They were mailed to the platoon in which one of our chapter alumni is currently serving.
Eta Chapter, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign After years of planning and a year of construction, Eta chapter finally moved into the newly renovated chapter house. Many alumni and undergraduates Brothers, have worked extremely hard by donating time and money to this project. Several alumni have stopped by to see the house. The official ribbon cutting ceremony was held at Homecoming. Brothers from across the country and with graduation dates going back to the ’50s gathered to celebrate the momentous occasion. After the football game, Brothers gathered at the house for appetizers and Brotherhood before moving to a formal banquet in the evening. Spending an entire year without a chapter house has given the Brothers a new appreciation for what it means to have a central structure to live, gather, and take pride in. This has been appreciated in holding meetings, Brotherhood events, and in recruiting. This past summer, the chapter worked diligently to gather as many men as possible to attend the National Convention in Newport News. Seven undergraduates and several alumni were able to attend, providing the chapter with Brothers educated on how to be excellent leaders. This is already evident as Eta brought in 20 new members during the fall semester. Brothers were excited to welcome Brothers from Theta Chapter at Purdue for the weekend in early October. Both chapters have a lot to learn from each other and the sharing of ideas will be of great use in improving chapter operations. This year, Eta Chapter looks to establish a new service program, based on a service event participated in during the spring 2010 Regional Conclave, which provides yard work for elderly and disabled. Our tradition of hosting a blood drive at the chapter house every semester was continued during the fall. We held our annual Just for Kicks philanthropy soccer tournament this fall.
Nu Chapter, Indiana University Nu Chapter had a great fall semester that continued to build upon the accomplishments in the spring. In August, we held the first annual Kappa Delta Rho Golf Invitational at the French Lick Resort. The event was created to strengthen our relationships with our alumni and to add to the usual alumni events during the school year. This event brought out alumni as well as Brothers from the active chapter. This is an event that will become a tradition here at Nu Chapter. Our goal this semester has been to increase our presence in the Bloomington community by increasing our community service and philanthropy. We recently held a charity poker tournament to support the local science center for kids, Wonder Lab. In addition, we are planning a bowling philanthropy and increasing our community service projects. So far this semester, Brothers have spent a day helping to clean up a local river and working at the garden and environment
the magazine of kappa delta rho
center on campus. Brother Wyatt Jackson ‘13 has been a great resource finding great opportunities to help our community. Recruitment is a high priority and we have pledged four men for our first class. Our goal this fall is to have seven pledges to beat the number of pledges from last fall. With our four pledges, we are currently at 19 men, and our goal is to be able to sustain a 20+ chapter from this semester on. We have entered into the top 10 in all of IFC for GPA. We all have worked hard on our academics and we hope to be in the top five real soon. As we continue to improve upon our achievements, we have enlisted the help of Brennon York as our chapter advisor. Brother York graduated in December 2009 and is currently working on his master’s degree. He now joins faculty advisor Ann Lawson Smith and alumni advisor Seth Rosen. We are fortunate to have such great mentors as a part of our chapter. The Brothers are excited about the opportunities to grow and become a major chapter on the IU campus again. We would like to thank John Reynolds for all the help he has given us as our consultant and look forward to improving with our new consultant Shane Henry. The Brothers are very happy with the direction the chapter is moving and we look forward to new opportunities for growth and improvement.
Rho Chapter, Lafayette College The Rho Chapter initiated 17 new members last fall. Each new member adds something distinct and unique to the chapter, upholding the values we were founded upon and promoting new ideas for our future. The Fraternity boasts a diversity of Brothers, including members of the varsity golf and tennis teams, merit-based scholars, and other leaders on the campus. Moreover, the chapter, is looking to uphold their stance as the Fraternity with the highest GPA on campus. On November 5, the chapter held a philanthropy event with national sorority Delta Delta Delta called “Kick for Cancer.” The event was held on Prospective Student’s Day, and all proceeds went to St. Judes Children’s Hospital. Overall, we look forward to broadening our tradition of excellence on campus, and continuing our high standards and principles.
Eta Alpha Chapter, Robert Morris University Eta Alpha Chapter continues to do great things at Robert Morris University. Last semester we took home Greek chapter of the year as well as many other awards - - - winning yet again another Greek Week (making that 14 of the last 15). Last semester we had the largest pledge class in a long time, with nine new members joining our first fall class. We will be conducting a second class this semester. With this rapid growth we plan to continue the excellence that KDR has known for a long time.
Theta Alpha Group Provisional Chapter, Slippery Rock University The gentlemen at the Theta Alpha Provisional Chapter are hard at work. Since attaining provisional chapter status last spring, our focus has sharpened greatly, along with our discipline, morale, and productivity, all of which will play a very crucial role to taking the next big step – to achieve our next goal and regain full chapter status. At the start of this semester, we all buckled down hard and decided we were going to take new approaches to every aspect of bettering our chapter. Ranging from using new techniques for recruitment, to looking beyond our back yard for fund-raising opportunities, reform and recollection has taken effect within group’s infrastructure. So far, we have reaped the rewards greatly. For two weekends toward the end of September, we raised more than $2,000 by driving to Virginia and parking cars at the Virginia State Fair. The work was tough, not to mention dirty, but the hard work was worth while, thanks to our Brothers at Christopher Newport University. Academically, our grades have started to improve greatly with the recent institution of mandatory study tables twice a week. Attending these study tables have consistently shown significant improvement in our grades. All are striving to achieve a 3.0 GPA or higher by the closer of the semester’s clos. We are proud to say our chapter newsletter, The Theta Alpha Tribune, has been resurrected. With the use of Adobe InDesign software, the newsletter was given a complete makeover, and for quality and design, we settled for nothing less than excellent. More and more alumni are catching word of our chapter coming back on campus, and, needless to say, are very excited for us. Their attendance at Homecoming was excellent, increasing by 700 percent since our first annual Alumni Weekend in the spring. We may have been extremely busy all across our campus, but recruitment has not suffered because of it. As of October 8, we secured six new Gentlemen as pledges, whom we are all honored to call our Brothers. Word continues to spread of our involvement in the community, along with our exciting rush events such as a backyard cookout and corn hole tournament and steak and stogy nights, and even our growing bonds with our fellow sororities. KDR’s comeback at the Rock continues to surge forward, and with a vengeance.
Xi Alpha Chapter, Temple University The Xi Alpha Chapter has been growing and expanding. For the fall semester we had 14 new members. Our community service is going strong as we continue to do block clean-ups and have fundraising events every other week for KDR for Kids. While participating in various Temple Greek services, we have been going to Woodstock Shelter for Abused Children weekly and have been playing with the kids, giving them an older Brother impact.
CHAPTER NEWS Last summer, our chapter received many awards such as the George E. Kimball, John L. Blakely, and the national Risk Management awards. We also took part in tailgating with our fellow alumni for Temple football games. We are grateful for the amazing grill that our alumni gave us and have been putting it to good use since receiving it. Our biggest tailgate was the Homecoming Tailgate.
Pi Alpha Chapter, University of Toledo The fall semester was the beginning of a new chapter for the chapter. This year the chapter has a very young eager group of students who are coming up with new ideas and have some high expectations for this year. With our new recruitment process we were able to give bids to several great men. At the end of recruitment week we received 11 new members. One of the new ideas we have this year for philanthropy is a Slice of Pi Alpha with the KDR’s where we will be selling slices of pizza with the proceeds going to our friends at the Toledo area Boys & Girls Club. Also, another big project we will be striving for this semester is a philanthropy event titled Hoops 4 Hope with all the proceeds going to the children of Haiti. Both events will showcase the finer beliefs of KDR Gentlemen. On the social side we hosted the lovely ladies of Delta Delta Delta to a homemade dinner named an The Early Autumn Dinner with the Gentleman of Kappa Delta Rho. It was themed as an early Thanksgiving dinner and it was a great time to socialize and network within the other Greek organizations.
Tau Alpha Chapter, Radford University The Tau Alpha Chapter has been making many improvements this year. Our chapter has greatly improved our Intra-Greek relations with both sororities and fraternities. At the end of the fall semester Brother Kincaid was elected to the position of Vice President of the IFC at Radford. This is the highest position ever that a Brother at Tau Alpha obtained within the IFC. We recently placed first in the Phi Sigma Sigma Kicks for Kidneys fundraiser. We had a fundraiser in order to raise money to pay for the medical bills of a family in Bluefield. Virginia. We have also drastically increased the amount of fundraising and philanthropy we accomplish during a semester. We have an extremely large philanthropy with the B+ (B-Positive) Foundation. We are currently planning the banquet for our chapter’s 25th anniversary which will be held in Richmond, Virginia during the spring semester.
Alpha Beta Chapter, University of Deleware Fall 2010 proved to be an excellent semester for our chapter, as we inducted 20 new members. The fall pledge class was one of the largest that the chapter has had in its history, and all signs indicate that there will be another large, quality pledge class in the spring. The overall size of the chapter has grown rapidly in recent

years, as we continue to improve with each new pledge class. The chapter not only added 20 gentlemen, but also hosted a successful philanthropic event over Halloween. The Halloween Haunted Mansion grossed a large sum of money for the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, which is an institution dedicated to the fight against cancer. The chapter invited the B+ Foundation “heroes” of all the other Greek organizations on campus. These “heroes” are children who suffer from various forms of cancer, but have been sponsored by Greek organizations to find a way to battle the disease. All of Greek life at the university came out to the Kappa Delta Rho Halloween Haunted Mansion, and it was tremendous for the members of our chapter. The chapter also had an exciting Homecoming, as alumni returned to the campus. We also spent Homecoming mixing with a sorority, Alpha Delta Pi. Alumni were impressed with the current status of the chapter, and were they generous enough to donate to our cause of placing Honor Above All Things. Fall 2010 was an enormous success, and the chapter looks forward to building on it further.
Epsilon Beta Chapter, Old Dominion University With a brand new Executive Board the Brothers of Epsilon Beta have come together to make great strides. We have obtained our first faculty advisor in years and have been working closely with him to develop faculty relations. We have done an excellent job in improving our service and philanthropic work this academic year. The annual car bash on campus raised over a hundred dollars for the Ronald McDonald House. During Halloween the Brothers once again volunteered for BOO at the ZOO at the Virginia Zoo. We have continued weekly street clean-ups around campus, and we are working on a toy drive and a jingle bell run around campus. The chapter initiated six new members who look to be strong future leaders on campus. And they have made a great effort in getting every Brother involved in more student organizations. Brother Chris Coats was elected president of IFC on campus and Mike Manwell was elected SGA Senator Representative. for IFC. With the spirit of the football season and the new team at ODU the Brothers have been selling superbowl raffle tickets around town as a great way to fundraise. Epsilon Beta has been
working very hard this semester to improve and meet reorganization guidelines.
Iota Beta Chapter, Rochester Institute of Technology Iota Beta came into the fall quarter both inspired and turbocharged from the National Convention. Most of our Executive Committee was able to attend the convention and we learned a great deal and got a lot of planning done. In the few short weeks we were back at college, we began to take the campus by storm. We had an incredibly successful rush, and we educated a pledge class of eight men. Furthermore, another eight men who received bids are planning to pledge in the winter once they are financially and academically able to do so. All of our new Brothers are prime examples of the positive direction our chapter is headed in. Our image on campus has improved drastically as we made an effort to be more visible, social, and friendly. We are always hosting pick-up sports games and events whenever the weather permits, and we have also been running what we call the Mobi-Couch - fundraiser for the Golisano Children’s Hospital where we offer rides to students and faculty on a rickshaw-mounted couch. Furthermore, our Brothers have been volunteering their time several times a month at a soup kitchen in downtown Rochester. Our chapter has been getting closer with several sororities and other fraternities on campus, and we will be having many social events with them throughout the year. Every Brother in our chapter is on a committee and each committee meets weekly to discuss goals and plans. This means that we have 100 percent Brother Involvement. In past years this would not have been possible, but the active undergraduate Brotherhood is totally dedicated to improving themselves on all fronts. In the alumni department, we have rekindled our old relationship with Paul Downes of Gamma Chapter. Brother Downes and his wife Nancy were able to grace our rush dinner and he gave a riveting speech to our Brothers and potential new members. We had our alumni weekend, Oktoberfest, which begun on October 15th. Many alumni from around the country flew in to Rochester for the event-filled weekend. We are certainly headed in the right direction and we are excited to see how it pans out.
Phi Beta Chapter, The College of William and Mary The Phi Beta Chapter has made incredible strides this past year. In two years we have gone from being on probation to being awarded the Best Chapter on campus. In addition, we finally organized our Alumni Corporation to accept donations, as well as pushing to finalize the Robert D. Corrie Scholarship. We are focusing our efforts to not only maintain our standards of hard work and excellence, but to push our organization to reach its full potential. We look forward to an exciting and fast-paced year.
Sigma Beta Chapter, University of North Carolina at Greensboro For the fall 2010, the Sigma Beta Chapter has worked on many tasks. We restructured our scholarship plan to help benefit the Brothers. Our homecoming was a total success; there was a great turn out from Alumni. Our annual fall philanthropy event Rho-a-Thon was a great success. We raised a lot of money for The Justin Dufur Memorial YOU Scholarship. Many of our Brothers have attended every Virginia Tech home football game to work, and have built a steady relationship with the Brothers of Gamma Beta. We are gearing up for a strong spring semester as we have our third Annual Miss. Red Rose Pageant and host the Southern Regional Conclave on Saturday, February 19!
Alpha Gamma Chapter, University of Detroit Mercy As the fall semester came to a close, it was good to look back on our achievements. The extra funds raised by working at Cedar Point over the summer gave us a lot of room to focus on more important aspects of the Fraternity instead of worrying about our financial strength. We were able to implement many of the goals set for us by the National Fraternity such as meeting regularly with a representative from Greek life. It was a large relief finally to be able to coordinate these meetings. Also, we continued to show our appreciation for the local authorities by bringing our local police precinct breakfast and UDM Public Safety lunch. Academics continue to be held in high esteem and the semester is looking strong for many of our Brothers. Our overall chapter GPA for the past spring semester had risen once again

we are looking forward to seeing how much that will continue to grow. We continue to build the momentum gained last spring and we are quickly realizing that there is no limit to what we can do. To stay current with the chapter visit our website at http://kdr.org.udmercy.edu/index.htm.
Beta Gamma Chapter, Christopher Newport University Beta Gamma Chapter has had a great semester, while recently celebrating our fourth year in existence. This past summer we hit our highest point by capturing the Robert D. Corrie Chapter of the Year Award. This energized our men to recruit and initiate five outstanding Theta Class Gentlemen into our chapter last fall. This new class has had an immediate impact on our Brotherhood, and we see them doing great things for our chapter as they take leadership positions in the future. We have continued to seek new ways to give back to our community, including volunteering through various projects including a neighborhood cleanup and a canned food drive. Our chapter has also recently added some furnishings to our house through a loan from the KDR Foundation which helped with recruitment. Finally, we were well represented on CNU’s highly selective Homecoming Court by our own John Crowley. We look toward to a strong spring semester and focused on improving our Brotherhood.
Charming in Don Nigro’s classic Cinderella Waltz. Last year we performed roughly 40 hours of community service for each Brother, and this year we are planning a large event in April with Feel Your Balls and Livestrong. As a young chapter, this past spring we took our first ever composite, which now proudly hangs in our house. At the 2010 National Convention we were honored with our first-ever national awards, taking home Outstanding Community Service, Outstanding Public Relations, and Outstanding Chapter Operations (Northeast Region). For the first time since our founding, we sent more than the compulsory two delegates, instead sending seven total. These Brothers found the convention to be a rewarding experience. The opportunity to
meet Brothers from across the country is one that will no longer be lightly missed. In early October we hosted our first ever Alumni Weekend in conjunction with Fall Fest. We hosted an alumni football game (the alumni won), and we had a BBQ on the lawn of our house. Several of our local founders attended, and overall it was a successful weekend that allowed us to reconnect with those former Brothers. We have also begun working with a local minor league baseball team (the York Revolution) to fundraise for our order. Partnering with sororities to work concession stands provides an added bonus. Moving forward, we aim to continue the reign of the Blue and Orange at York. Through all our changes and all our growth, one goal will forever remain: To strive to place Honor Above All Things.
Delta Gamma Provisional Chapter, McDaniel College The Delta Gamma Provisional Chapter has been making great strides to becoming a chartered chapter. The chapter has initiated five outstanding new members, all of whom will contribute greatly to our success. Recently, the chapter began its annual philanthropy event with the St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital. Each Brother sent out at least 50 letters asking for donations to aid children struggling with cancer and other terminal illnesses. Also, the chapter is participating in an upcoming Alzheimer’s Walk, as well as the Walk for Autism. We look forward to continuing the growth of our chapter and to a strong spring semester. Also,
the chapter would like to congratulate our new member Ian Goldman on the birth of his beautiful baby girl Abigail.
Epsilon Gamma Provisional Chapter, University of Texas of the Permian Basin The Group of Intent of the University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB) currently has 25 members. Excitement is in the air from more than doubling in speed and intensity from the original 11 to the 25 we currently have. Many other possible rushees are already lined up hoping to be granted a bid. Pride on campus is swelling and Kappa Delta Rho has a significant, direct correlation to that overall pride. The administration, the faculty, and the student body are excited about the possibility of Greek life at UTPB. Kappa Delta Rho will forever hold the honor of being the first fraternity to be allowed to call UTPB home, and the first Group of Gentlemen to personify the image of the fraternal orders as one of honor, contrary to the commonly perceived misconception in movies and in the media.

Gamma Gamma Chapter, York College of Pennsylvania Middlebury Blue and Princeton Orange dominate on the college campus. This past fall we have pinned seven neophytes into our order, constituting the largest pledge class on campus. We are on track to reach 40 Brothers by May 2011. Along with this growth has come achievement in other areas: we are proud to say that KDR has the highest Fraternity GPA on campus with a 3.0, placing us above the all-campus male average. Our Brothers are involved in 27 different organizations, with 12 of those Brothers holding executive positions. This includes four members of Student Senate (one on e-board), the president of IFC, and Prince

CHAPTER ETERNAL Dear Brothers, On July 1, 2010 the National Fraternity and the Kappa Delta Rho Foundation decided to bring back to the National Office the Fraternity’s database and the day-to-day management. The staff has dedicated considerable time in updating our records. In collaboration with Harris Direct, our Fraternity directory publisher, and several alumni associations, we have been able to update our records. Unfortunately, updating the database brings the news of Brothers who passed on to Chapter Eternal. A majority of the more than 200 names you see listed here did not pass into Chapter Eternal since the last publishing of the Quill & Scroll. This being said as executive director and editor of the Quill & Scroll I felt it was important that these Brothers be listed in the chapter eternal listing. They will also be included in the listing at the Chapter Eternal table at the Ordo Honoris Banquet at the 100th National Convention in August. May our Brothers rest in peace. Fraternally, Joseph S.

in memoriam Brother Curtis Valent On January 2, 2011 Brother Curtis Valent, Eta Alpha ’10 passed away due to complications from surgery. Curtis joined Kappa Delta Rho during his first semester at Robert Morris University in the Fall of 2006. During his time as an undergraduate he worked hard to succeed in the fraternity, eventually rising to the position of Consul. He was a mentor and inspiration to all of the Brothers. He worked diligently to maintain an outstanding grade point average, making his family and his chapter proud. In the summer of 2008, Curtis was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a cancer of the bone. Due to his competitive nature, everybody around him knew Curtis would beat it. He fought valiantly overcoming the cancer twice throughout the past two years. He lived his life to the fullest and he demonstrated daily what it meant to live a life anchored on Honor Super Omnia. Curtis never held back and if he wasn’t on campus or with his family you could find him on the slopes snowboarding in the winter and in the summer on the golf course. This past winter he became engaged to his long time girlfriend, Erin Perry, while snowboarding in the mountains. He graduated this fall cum laude from Robert Morris University. Curtis will always be a mentor and inspiration for the Brothers at the Eta Alpha Chapter.

From the Foundation President Dear Brothers, Our Fraternity is poised for great things! It is based on sound principles/precepts, has a solid National office led by our energetic executive director and is now under the leadership of a new president who hopes to propel the organization forward. The growth in the number of Brothers is testament that we are heading in the right direction. The Fraternity has plans and energy, but it needs your support to turn that vision into reality. I challenge those of you who are successful and committed to Kappa Delta Rho to join me in donating to the Annual Fund at the Founder’s Society level ($1,000 or above). For anyone unable to reach that level, either financially or emotionally, I would ask that you contribute what you feel is appropriate. Every gift is appreciated and valued, but your participation is key to funding the programs that help our Brothers. I would personally like to thank Shawn Hoke, our former national president, for his years of dedication to the Fraternity and the effort he put into that position. During his tenure the Fraternity was stabilized, re-organized and began on the current path of growth and success. His work is just another testament of a Brother who sacrificed to repay the Fraternity for what it has given him. If you are unable to donate your time, I ask that you make a gift. Your participation through volunteer efforts with National or a local chapter, or by your financial support, is what allows Kappa Delta Rho to succeed. Think back to the pledge we all took when we became Brothers, the tireless effort we put in while at the chapter to ensure the success of our organization. Re-energize your support today. Take the time today to say thank you to the Fraternity for what it did for you and mail a check or make a contribution online at www.kdrfoundation.org.

The Next Hundred Years Looks Very Promising… thanks to CRP Donors by Jim Hubbard, Psi ’66 and Mark West, Upsilon Alpha ’88 The Centennial Recognition Program (CRP), begun in 2005 as a tribute to our 100 years as a Fraternity, concluded at the end of 2010. The funds raised are now endowed funds within the KDR Foundation and will provide meaningful annual dollars for the work of the KDR Fraternity for the next 100 years and beyond. This fiveyear campaign was run during difficult times, yet the KDR Brotherhood responded well. The donors to the CRP have much to be proud of. The Foundation Board of Trustees as well as the National Fraternity’s Board of Directors salute and express their deepest gratitude to all contributors who supported our Fraternity through this campaign. The names of those who pledged more than $500 dollars will appear on the Recognition Wall.. Let’s cut to the bottom line! Most all of us have the strongest tie to our chapters. That’s natural. But, when our chapters struggle we look to the National Office to send staff, resources and help. When our chapters close we look
to the National Fraternity to send staff, resources, and volunteers to work to reopen them. Brothers, our Fraternity embarked on a multiyear expansion program to reopen closed chapters, expand to new campuses, and strengthen existing chapters. Staff and volunteers continue to work virtually round the clock, 24/7, supporting and strengthening our Fraternity. Thank you for providing the resources to make their job easier and the product better. Bringing Honor Above All Things to young men on campus is an appropriate and valuable endeavor. It was good for us, let’s make it great for them. CRP donors have helped us allow KDR and Greek life to remain an important part of the college experience. Now that the CRP campaign is drawing to a close, we consider it a strong success as pledges received from 618 Brothers totaled $1,492,365.01. This is a great legacy that will serve our Fraternity in future years.
