September 11

The Alpha Tau Omega fraternity was founded on September 11, 1865. On September 11, 2001 two ATOs lost their lives in the Twin Towers. Today is a good day to re-read and reflect upon our creed.

The Creed of Alpha Tau Omega

To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon eternal and immutable principles, with a bond as strong as right itself and as lasting as humanity; to know no North, no South, no East, no West, but to know man as man, to teach that true men the world over should stand together and contend for supremacy of good over evil; to teach, not politics, but morals; to foster, not partisanship, but the recognition of true merit wherever found; to have no narrower limits within which to work together for the elevation of man than the outlines of the world: these were the thoughts and hopes uppermost in the minds of the founders of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.

Stanley Livingston Webb III

70

Brother Stanley Webb III passed-away in May 2012, from a long battle with cancer.

Stanley was a lifelong resident of Odem, Texas. He was a successful farmer & developer in the Odem area.

A few years ago, Stanley’s name was on theLost Brothers list. Since I was from Odem and knew Stanley, I reported his address and phone number. He was also on “Facebook”. Believe he was initiated in the early sixties… 1962 or 1963. I graduated in 1961, and he was a few years behind me.

His Obituary was in the “Odem-Edroy Times”, back in May.

I do not have all his information. I know he left a wife & children & grandchildren. I did not have a contact for ATO-ZM, until I received an email yesterday (8-5-2012). Please add Stanley’s name to yourChapter Eternal“ list.

Fraternally yours,

Gary Pugh

Examining the benefits of Greek Life

Since 1825, all but three U.S. presidents have been members of a fraternity.

85% of Fortune 500 executives were part of Greek life. The first female astronaut was Greek. So was the first female senator. And college graduation rates are 20% higher among Greeks than non-Greeks.

Which begs an obvious question: Does being in a fraternity or sorority increase your chance for success?
