My involvement with Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity
at Emporia State University

Motto: "Not for wealth, rank or honor but for personal worth and character"


Emporia State University - Emporia, Kansas
Gamma-Phi Chapter  1992 - 1996

My involvement with TKE started when my long time neighborhood friend David T. introduced me to some of his fraternity brothers during the Fall semester of 1992. Right away, they made me feel welcomed and a part of their family of brotherhood. I was initiated into the Gamma Phi Chapter at ESU in the Spring of 1993 with the Scroll Number of #631 and with the nickname "Pinto". I was named Pinto, because of my fraternity Big Brother, Charles Gregory used to drive a Pinto car. Also, my nickname came from the movie Animal House. During my 4 years as an active member, I held the offices of Histor (Historian), Hypophetes (Chaplin), Hegemon (Pledge Educator), and Prytanis (President). I had the best college days/nights hanging out with my TKE Fraternity Brothers.
