HAPPY FOUNDERS DAY
On a summer day in June of 1920, 17 men at Central Missouri State Teachers College made a decision that cultivated leaders of nobility. Their decision that Monday morning would ultimately impact thousands of men over multiple generations.
Because of them, we are men of Principle, we are men of Purpose, and we are men of Nobility. Today, we celebrate 99 years of brotherhood, happy Founders Day gentlemen!
Today, the Endeavor Track spent time casting a vision for their future, discussing masculinity and what it means to be a man. They also participated in a panel discussing confidence. The panel was facilitated by Jud Horras with the NIC; John White, Georgia; and Rob Parker.
The lifelong membership track worked through what it means to lay down the foundation for their future, personal finances, relationships, and happiness.
