Letter from the Editor 4

Here are two things you can be confident about: First, know that the Fraternity’s mission is being achieved every day, in places all across this country. Proof of this can be found in the pages of this magazine; the story of the impact and purpose of our Presidents Academy is a perfect illustration of the lifechanging experiences that Phi Kappa Tau provides. Providing young men with the skills and experiences that expose them to the interworking of true ethical leadership is fundamental to who we are as brothers of Phi Kappa Tau. Second, you can be confident in the leadership of our Phi Kappa Tau Foundation. A remarkable team has assembled to support the functions of our Foundation and support the mission of this great organization. The brothers who serve as trustees are all successful business and community leaders. You can see the names of our Foundation leaders to the right, and the proof of their mission and leadership can be felt throughout the Fraternity, thanks to the strategic path that they are following. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Throughout this issue and every issue of The Laurel, you can see evidence of how, together, we are helping make good men into great leaders and ensuring the success of this mission far into the future. On behalf of the volunteers and staff of Phi Kappa Tau, I am honored to share with you our Foundation’s Annual Report. In this issue, we present to you the overall state of the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation—strong today, and inspiring confidence in the future.

State of the Foundation It was déjà vu, listening to Jim Caruso, Michigan Tech ’89, who oversees the Gamma Alpha Chapter Educational 5 Grant (CEG) Fund committee, address the crowd at Michigan Tech this December, during the chapter’s annual Board of Governors meeting at the Great Lakes Invitational Hockey Tournament in Detroit. Caruso emphasized alumni support for the Fraternity’s educational and leadership programs and encouraged undergraduates to attend them. Michigan Tech alumni have sponsored undergraduates to attend the Men of Character programs each year since they began. Jim remembered that Ray Clarke, Bowling Green ’51, often told him about the CEGs, how they cover the costs of sending undergraduates to these leadership programs, and how they affect the lives of our brothers. Ray was a significant contributor to the CEG at Michigan Tech and to the Foundation during his lifetime and encouraged other alumni to donate. He bequeathed a significant gift from his estate to support the Michigan Tech CEG. By supporting the Fraternity, Ray bonded himself to future generations and continues to help shape the character of each brother. I relay these stories because your contributions to both your own chapter’s CEG and to the Foundation’s Brotherhood Fund allow Phi Kappa Tau to continue offering leadership development and character building programs. It is only through your continued generosity that we can keep funding these programs. My past experience as a facilitator at the Presidents Academy, Leadership Academy and Regional Conferences confirms Ray’s beliefs in our educational and personal development programs. As time passes, I have seen the personal growth in the young brothers who attended these programs. They’ve made an impact not only at the schools they attend, but also as their careers begin. They are better equipped to contribute to our society. During 2016 we will again ask for your time, talent and treasure to support our Fraternity. Phi Kappa Tau is growing and is larger now than at any time in our history. The financial need has never been greater to support an evergrowing number of brothers who attend the important leadership-building programs. On behalf of the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation volunteers and staff, we thank the brothers, parents, friends and organizations that continue to support our mission and vision. It is only through your generosity that we can support the leaders of tomorrow. It’s a great time to be a Phi Tau!

Dexter Horne, Centre ’13, was selected as one of the 2015 recipients of the Paul A. Elfers Omega scholarship because of his outstanding academic success, commitment to the ideals of Phi Kappa Tau and service to his campus, community and the Fraternity. Horne served his chapter as philanthropy and service chairman, recruitment chairman and chapter president. Outside of his chapter, Horne participates in student government, serves as a Centre ambassador and has accumulated more than 1,000 hours of service to the Danville community and surrounding Boyle County area. According to Horne, the Paul A. Elfers Omega scholarship helped him maintain his high level of campus and chapter involvement, as well as his standing on the Dean’s List this year, by removing some of the financial strain of attending college. Following graduation, Horne seeks to continue his education by working towards a master’s degree in public administration. This advanced degree will help him accomplish his overall vision, “to bring us closer to a world where cities provide great opportunities for young boys and girls transcending location, race and income.”

Recently elected president of the Alpha Tau chapter and 2015 SeriousFun Stipend recipient Eric Oberman, Cornell ’14, had the opportunity to attend Phi Kappa Tau’s National Community Service Event last year with 11 of his chapter brothers. Oberman and the men of Alpha Tau traveled to Camp Boggy Creek in Eustis, Fla., where they engaged in service projects with brothers from across the country. Among the brotherhood building and service, Oberman had the opportunity to speak with several of the Camp Boggy Creek counselors about their experiences at camp. Hearing the impactful stories of the counselors, Oberman returned to campus as an advocate for SeriousFun within and outside of his own chapter. “Getting involved with SeriousFun has made my experience as a brother of Phi Kappa Tau even more meaningful. In the future, I will help as many of my brothers as possible understand the value of getting hands-on experience with SeriousFun.”

SeriousFun Stipends Phi Kappa Tau is proud of its affiliation with SeriousFun Children’s Network, established by the late Paul Newman, Ohio ’43. Camps across the country and around the world are special places designed to provide a healthy dose of laughter and enjoyment for children with serious illnesses. Phi Kappa Tau brothers travel to SeriousFun camps throughout the world to serve as positive male role models. Hundreds of men volunteer as cabin counselors, activity specialists, unit leaders and other camp staff during a week or for the entire summer. The Phi Kappa Tau Foundation provides up to $300 in travel stipends to any undergraduate who volunteers at a camp.

n January, presidents from 79 chapters across the country traveled to Dallas, Texas, for Phi Kappa Tau’s annual Presidents Academy, a program designed specifically to prepare newly elected presidents for their term in office. The men were eager to meet other presidents and gain valuable skills.

The weekend began Friday as Presidents Academy Dean Andy Fruth, Southern Illinois ’08, welcomed the presidents and told them how helpful a presidential “boot camp” would have been for his own presidency, telling the eager leaders, “I was literally steering the ship without a compass. The transition from my predecessor was being handed a loosely stuffed folder and gavel with a vague explanation of how to run next week’s chapter meeting.” He noted that Phi Kappa Tau's Presidents Academy was structured to provide new presidents with the compass for that ship. The Academy curriculum was designed to motivate and create ethical leaders of tomorrow using three overarching objectives: to identify risky behavior, to identify responsibilities as president and to identify accountability in each aspect of office. Activities and conversations emphasized these objectives with each president and provided real-world application. Presidents participated in a panel discussion with National President Rick Keltner, Sacramento State ’76, CEO Tim Hudson, Truman State ’97, and Leroy Chiao, UC Berkeley ’79. Chiao said his time at Nu chapter prepared LEARNING. LEADING. SERVING.



During the closing of Presidents Academy, presidents take the oath of office during the officer installation ceremony.

Presidents are given the opportunity to read letters from their chapter’s previous leaders and write a note of advice for future chapter officers. him to be an astronaut, and that his professional career was furthered by the skills he gained as a Phi Tau. He attributed much of his success to networking and study skills he honed at Nu. He said that during astronaut interviews, considerable weight was placed upon a period of interaction among the full candidate pool and the hiring panel. With so many of the candidates of equal technical expertise, Chiao believed his social skills gave him an edge with the panel and ultimately led to his selection as an astronaut. The Academy experience was enhanced with small group conversations led by both member and nonmember facilitators. To keep participants engaged, the schedule bounces between large group presentations and small group discussion. Presidents are divided into groups regionally to encourage connections following Presidents Academy. It is the job of small group facilitators to provide different perspectives and challenge presidents’ assumptions throughout the weekend. One president reported on his evaluation, “Our facilitator did a great job at creating an environment of mutual respect; I feel he truly wants nothing but the best for my chapter.” Another wrote: “Our group facilitator was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable and helped me learn new things.” Facilitators serve an important role in guiding the presidents through the curriculum to ensure they get the most out of the short program. The weekend concluded with discussions on leaving a positive legacy. Presidents finalized their goals for the upcoming term and created action plans to achieve these goals. Each president also had the opportunity to reflect on where his chapter has been. Previous presidents wrote their goals in a letter to their future chapter president. Letters spanning several years give the incoming president a chance to see how his chapter has grown. The activity concludes with the current chapter president adding his goals and legacy in a letter for future generations of leaders, extending the links in the chain of brotherhood. THE LAUREL |



Presidents are greeted by staff and volunteers during check-in. Each president received personalized business cards and a business card holder. Presidents learned how Phi Kappa Tau shaped leaders during a panel discussion. National Leadership Advisor Leroy Chiao, UC Berkeley ’79, National President Rick Keltner, Sacramento State ’76, and CEO Tim Hudson, Truman State ’97, said how the lessons learned while undergraduate members propelled them into success within their careers. Presidents learned about the Borradaile Challenge through an interactive board game.



The Brothers Trust, the Foundation’s exclusive undergraduate giving society, provides scholarships for colony members to attend Men of Character programs. Pictured are colony presidents of Phi Kappa Tau.

17 Phi Kappa Tau brothers were given the opportunity to identify a goal they wish to accomplish during the upcoming year. Once each president documented his goal, he shared it with his cohort of presidents for feedback. Phi Kappa Tau alumni and friends facilitated the small group sessions of Presidents Academy. Each brought a unique perspective and worldview that they shared with presidents. Some facilitators work as campus fraternity and sorority advisors while others work in other areas of industry.

Seventy-nine presidents graduated from the 2016 Presidents Academy in Dallas, Texas. The weekend was spent networking with alumni and other presidents. Presidents return to their home chapters with the knowledge and skills to successfully lead their chapters.



Ewing T. Boles Society 18

Ewing T. Boles, Centre ’14 recognized that to capitalize on the full potential of Phi Kappa Tau, the Fraternity needed committed, selfless leaders willing to give in support of its mission. It needed brothers willing to exemplify their just pride in Phi Kappa Tau through philanthropic commitment. Brothers and friends who demonstrate their belief in Phi Kappa Tau through philanthropy by contributing $1,000 or more to the Foundation each year are recognized as members of the Ewing T. Boles Society. Boles Society members help Phi Kappa Tau become the best by joining at the level most appropriate for them: Society level at $1,000, Red Carnation level at $2,500 or Laurel Wreath level at $5,000. The Foundation’s most generous donors are recognized as members of the Chairman’s level for giving $10,000 or more.

Looking at the years ahead and thinking about what can be accomplished, we must remember that Phi Kappa Tau can be the best. If we have the means and the funds to do that, there is no question that goal can be achieved.” —Ewing T. Boles, Centre ’14

Heritage Society 20

For thousands of Phi Kappa Tau alumni, an ongoing connection to the Fraternity is a lifelong passion demonstrated in part by their support of the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation. Many extend that passion beyond their lifetime by including a charitable gift to the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation in their estate plans. Phi Kappa Tau members from all walks of life, with estates ranging from modest to complex, have shared a common bond through the years: their abiding interest in assuring that their undergraduate brothers have access to the best possible leadership development and educational opportunities. An estate gift can help ensure these opportunities for generations to come. A bequest to Phi Kappa Tau may be made through a will or living trust in the form of cash, securities, real estate or other property. Donors should specify that the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation is to receive a certain amount or percentage of their estate, particular assets or the remainder of their estate after providing for their heirs. The Foundation recognizes and honors those who elect to make estate gifts and other forms of deferred gifts by including their names in the Heritage Society. By committing to an estate gift, these members join the likes of Ewing T. Boles, Centre ’14, Roland Maxwell, Southern California ’22, Charles M. Shaw, UC Berkeley ’49, and others whose support both during their lifetime and upon entering Chapter Eternal have left a legacy to be remembered always. LEARNING. LEADING. SERVING.
