Generous donations by Alumni Brothers, often as Memorials in lieu of flowers for Brothers that have passed on to the Chapter Eternal have funded Five One Thousand Dollar Scholarhips for James Gutowsky (3.07 cumulative GPA); Drew Milburn (3.6); Zac Crowder (3.34); Shane Rankin (3.12) and Sean Kelly (3.26). They were recognized with a steak luncheon yesterday at the Face to Face Scholarship Luncheon. These undergraduate Brothers continue the tradition of nothing less than a 3.0 GPA that we all carried when we were undergraduates. Thank you for your support!

Ronnie Caldwell, another of the Zeta Mu brotherhood has passed on to the Chapter Eternal. My dad passed away just a year ago and I am reminded of the issues to which attention requires. While flowers and plants enhance the service, they become another chore for the family. I gather from Kuch that Ronnie’s widow, Barbara, would be honored to have donations made to assist our newest Brothers with their college expenses. If you are inclined to make a donation in lieu of flowers, please mail your tax deductible contribution made out to SHSU-ATO Scholarship Fund (% Rick Hanna; PO Box 25; Huntsville, TX 77342) with a remark as to whom the memorial is being made. The University will send a letter to the family recognizing the gift. Last week I carried over $2,000 in memorials for Orin Covell and Steve Robinson
