Ann (Jeff Council’s better-half) info follows for The Brothers:
A few weeks ago, Ann took a test designed to read calcium build-up in the body. The test results were alarmingly high and she was directed to visit her cardiologist. The cardiologist scheduled a heart cath which was performed last week at Oak Bend in Richmond. The cath showed blockages and subsequenly, bypass surgery was performed this past Monday at Methodist Sugar Land. The triple bypass surgery was a success.

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.

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 the “Lost 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 your “Chapter Eternal’“ list.
The 80th Biennial ATO Congress kicks off tomorrow (August 1, 2012)! Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Regency Foyer, with the Presidents Meeting and other sessions for chapter presidents in the afternoon and the opening of ATO Congress at 7:00 p.m.
For a quick look at the full schedule, check out the Congress Schedule-at-a-Glance.
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?

Sam Houston State University students will be returning to campus soon and are being invited to take a sneak peek at being Greek at the “Greek Life Recruitment Fair” on Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Lowman Student Center Plaza.
“We want students make the most of their college experience by joining our respective fraternities and sororities,” said Brittney Randolph, SHSU’s National Panhellenic Council director of recruitment.
“Greek Life offers something for everyone, especially those who would like to excel at philanthropic, social, athletic, and leadership-based activities in addition to their academic pursuits,” she said.
