Hope this message finds each of you, and your family safe and healthy through these challenging and uncertain times. The Alumni Association is concerned for each of you. Feeling isolated, reach out to a frater you’ve lost touch with.
In order to support the association mission as documented below, we’ve established funding goals to support this mission. The association board unamniously approved the following funds distribution including Fellowship (10% of your dues to support administrative and fellowship programs), Networking (40% of your dues to support programs focusing on broadening our ability to enable professional networking, and lastly Scholarship (40% of your dues will go directly to the Gene Barnes Memorial Scholarship Fund administered by TKE IHQ.)
Today, we are unveiling our enhanced mission and charter including:
- Fellowship. Just like being an undergraduate Frater, being an alumni allows us to maintain and encourage the relationships we built during our time at GMU. One of the main aspects of our AA is to enhance the ability to maintain and grow the fellowship we have with other TKE alumni.
- Scholarship. We created the Frater Gene Barnes Memorial Scholarship fund some 30 years ago. Frater Gene brought much to our local chapter, and in his honor, we hope to continue his legacy by sponsoring undergraduate TKEs in their educational endeavors.
- Networking. What good is an association, post completion of your academic studies, if you cannot leverage the greater association to advance your business career. With 50 years of graduates, at all stages of various business careers (Doctors, Lawyers, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, etc.), our AA will further your career.
