It’s my pleasure to announce that the Sigma Triton charge has been very successful in many aspects. I have fully transitioned into being the new president and our new undergraduate executive board is excited to help improve our house. We recently have excelled in growth with initiating 21 new members. They have already taken initiative by running for positions such as social chair, recruitment chair and academic chair. We hope the new members take interest in these positions, as they are the future of our house. As the new president I am proud to see the growth in numbers and outstanding gentlemen.
Rush is in the very near future, and our brotherhood is very excited. Our lead rush chair, Cody Mosgrove, has already been very active in finding potential members who hope to uphold our house traditions. There are many events planned to help recruit different people. Our zone day is approaching closer every day and we hope to have a large interest in Theta Delta Chi. We hope to continue to grow as a brotherhood, while instilling traditions in each new potential member.
Thon is on the horizon and the house is anxiously waiting to see the hard work pay off. Many are aware that two of the three canning trips were cancelled this past year, which has forced our brotherhood to put forth more effort. We have had many successful events thanks to Giovanni Mineo. In the near future we plan to raise a few thousand dollars through a local concert at another fraternity, Delta Upsilon. One of our brothers is in a band and will be performing along with many other local acts to raise money. We have been very creative in our efforts in our fight for the kids. In the past we have always placed in the top ten for Greek life by raising a substantial amount of money. We hope the outcome is even better this year.
Thon is very important to the house; however, we also take great pride in our national philanthropy, Autism Speaks. Our new Philanthropy chair, Jack McCormick, has been working hard to help raise awareness and funding. In the spring we hope to have a successful turnout in the Autism speaks walk. This event will show the power of our charge by expressing the good that can come from our efforts and drive.
In conclusion the Sigma Triton charge continues to thrive in the Greek organizations throughout Penn State. We look forward to our bright future and hope to grow as a strong, cohesive brotherhood.
In the bonds,
Charles J. O’Connell
