PHOENIX, ARIZONA – As the sun began to rise, it was time for day three of Grand Conclave to start. The final day kicked off with the House of Trotter Donor Recognition Breakfast. Many graduated to the next level of our Foundation Giving Societies, and two members of the Foundation Board of Trustees will be transitioning to Trustee Emeritus. Kenley Hoover, IU – Pennsylvania, and Joe Feldhouse, Cleveland State, have served the Foundation for decades and we are forever grateful for their dedication to Sig Tau.
The first half of the last day of Grand Conclave was centered around educating our members. Twelve different educational sessions were presented to both undergraduate and alumni members. Sessions included the basics of recruiting, having open dialogues on diversity and inclusion, and how to be an engaged alumnus. Facilitators from various organizations, higher education professionals, and partners such as OmegaFi helped present the sessions.
During “resort time,” brothers and guests were able to enjoy the lazy river, relax by the pool, or hit the back nine for a round of golf.
The night ended with a bang, as Jim Johnston, Carnegie Mellon was installed as the 40th National President of Sigma Tau Gamma, and both chapter and individual awards were given to worthy recipients.
One final surprise for the evening was the unveiling of the Centennial Brand, signifying that our 100th Anniversary will take place just two short years from now in Kansas City, Missouri.
