Invitation from Doc

Congrats to Mike’s super human work. The board has set the stage for a return to active service. Any organization that can survive the 1970s should be able to survive the 2020s, If any brother is in town give me a call and I’ll buy lunch, email to rbenoit@vt,edu. I start my 55th year of teaching this fall.

Alumni Support & Leadership

From John DeBell:

I got my copy of “The Link” earlier today. After being shocked by the events earlier this year that resulted in the closing of the active chapter, I was delighted by the Alumni Boards actions to save the house and put together and implement actions to stabilize the situation and move forward . I fully support all your actions. I wanted to personally thank you, the other Board members and the other Alumni that stepped up to mitigate the damage, develop a plan to move forward , and to implementing that plan. I will be sending a gift to Sam for the Alumni Support Fund.

Thanks for your leadership

Bart Evans Remembrance

Bart Evans

From Louis Evans – March 9, 2017

For Bart Evans, VT and the very young men who became his Brothers were the essential and profound basis and catapult for who he became as a man.

His passing this year on January 28th coexists with what seems to be this other passing. However, a circle continues and, like the class ring and a wedding ring , becomes stronger with the pounding from a skilled goldsmith.Many of you are the goldsmiths who can dig the ring out of the lake or garden or some forgotten place and pound or even reforge it into it’s once shining self.
