A Few Brothers Have Spoken.

You answered five brief questions in a survey last month. Here is what you said:

What is your fondest memory of being part of Kappa Sigma?

  • The comradery while in school.
  • Remodeling the main house the summer before my senior year with Don Tolbert and all the other brothers.
  • The Lobby - there was so much spontaneous laughter, camaraderie, deep discussions, inane discussions, and bonds of friendship. Of course a few beers and Spades, Hearts, and Tunk card games also.
  • Brotherhood


What are the top 3 things you gained from your Kappa Sigma experience?

  • At the time a sense of family. Being a part of something bigger than myself. Parties.
  • Leaderships skills, How to manage the rigors of student life at GT, Loyalty and friendship with many people
  • 1) Great group of lifetime friends 2) Good sense of humor and a quick wit (you wouldn't survive without it) 3) Leadership experience at a young age
  • Working with and getting along with others.
  • Brotherhood


How would your life be different today if you had never joined Kappa Sigma?

  • I probably wouldn't have made it through to graduate.
  • I think my business/political success would have been a good bit less, and can't imagine my friend base would be as good.
  • Far fewer memories.
  • Fewer friends.


 Share an update (family, career, hobbies, other interesting news) for possible publication in an upcoming event.

  • Retired from the Caterpillar dealer in West Virginia. Spent my entire career in the heavy equipment industry. Married to a beautiful lady from WV who loves and is loved by all four of our children and eight grandchildren, one in heaven.
  • After 10 years of elective office I tried to quit and be just public sector, but am now working for the Lt Governor of Georgia, who is a great friend and former House colleague.


As an alumni association, we strive to keep you connected with the Alpha Tau chapter long after graduation. What could we do to encourage you to become more active in the association? Perhaps by hosting more fun events? Any other advice?

  • Nothing I know of. I made repeated attempts to connect with my brothers after graduation to no avail. After a few years I gave up.
  • Reduce the miles between here and there.


Thank you for sharing your touching memories and your opinions. Your words mean something to us, brothers. We have heard you and will act on your advice.
