“…by far, the greatest reason is the life-long friends I have made.” – Dr. Kip Anderson, Nebraska Kearney

Dr. Kip Anderson, Nebraska Kearney, recently shared why he’s thankful for Sig Tau, “Being a Sig Tau was a great experience.  It provided great opportunities to learn and develop leadership skills and social skills, but by far, the greatest reason is the life-long friends I have made.  These are men who I can talk to and trust like I see them daily when it may be years between handshakes.”

Kip’s son Kyle joined Sig Tau this year and is experiencing Greek life at the University of Nebraska Kearney. He believes their undergraduate experiences are quite different, but “mostly in a good way.”  Kyle was diagnosed with osteosarcoma when he was in the seventh grade. He has been receiving treatment for the last six years for cancer that was found in his left femur. Kip said that he didn’t push him to join Sig Tau, but several members of the Beta Chi chapter are from their hometown of Columbus, Nebraska and knew Kyle. “He has been battling cancer for the last six years, yet lives each day with the attitude he will make himself better as he looks to the future.  I believe that is why the members of his chapter sought him out.”

The timeless Principles of Sigma Tau Gamma resonate with Kip and Kyle alike and are proof that Sig Tau is truly building noble generations of gentlemen.
