Dear Tau Trustees, Alumni, Parents, and Chapter, 
After seven years of outstanding leadership, Jim Pritchett '71 has stepped down as Chairman of the Texas Kappa Sigma Educational Foundation. During his tenure, the Warren Residence Hall was completed and three Tau Chapter alumni were named Kappa Sigma International Man of the Year. 
On behalf of the Tau Trustees, I extend our deepest gratitude to Jim for his service and many accomplishments. We look forward to the continued strong leadership we are confident that newly-elected Bill Zwiener '73 will provide.

Dear Tau Trustees, Alumni, Parents, and Chapter,

I am excited and humbled to be elected Chairman of the Texas Kappa Sigma Educational Foundation. The bonds of friendship and brotherhood I've enjoyed throughout the years as a Tau Kappa Sig active and an alumnus have been filled with joy and a sense of purpose. Joining Kappa Sigma was one of the best decisions I have ever made. As most of you will agree, the bonds we create as Kappa Sigs serve us for a lifetime.

Today, like so many brothers before me, I'm honored to have the opportunity to give back to the Chapter by serving on the TKSEF Board.  I want to thank all of the former board members, with a special thank you to Jim Pritchett, Hagen McMahon and Reggie Tuck. 

I am fortunate to have stepped into a very good situation. The Chapter, the alumni, our communications program, our incredible facilities and our relations with the University and with Kappa Sigma Fraternity are the best they've been in many years. Tau Chapter is one of the largest fraternities on campus and maintains one of the highest grade point averages. And, Kappa Sigma is the largest of all fraternities nationwide. We must be doing something right!

We have an excellent Board assisted by many volunteers from across the state. As Chairman, my duties include overseeing annual and special events and award presentations, interfacing with Kappa Sigma Fraternity, the Tau Trustees, alumni advisors, alumni, and the communications agency. I'm also in charge of chairing the Trustee Executive Committee and Nominating Committee meetings and conducting elections.

Other Board Directors are: 
Danny Grant ’79 — As President, Danny manages our real estate assets, executes contracts and interfaces with corporation employees, Warren Residence Hall tenants, and the communications agency; 
John Sarvadi ’85 — As Vice President, John oversees the Capital Campaign along with the Treasurer, manages the Alumni Speaker Series, consults with the Chapter officers and interfaces with the Tau Chapter actives, their parents and the Capital Campaign consultant;  
Michael Sharpe ’79 — As Secretary, Mike documents notices, proxies, agendas and minutes for all meetings of the Board and Trustees, executes all contracts along with the President and maintains records of the same, and interfaces with the communications agency; 
Brian Miller ’79 — As Treasurer, Brian prepares the corporation's annual budget, oversees the Capital Campaign along with the Vice President, maintains records of all contracts along with the Secretary, authorizes timely payment of all invoices for the corporation, manages the corporation's finances, interfaces with the bank, the accounting firm, the billing vendor, communications agency and the Capital Campaign consultant. 

I look forward to working with all of these fine men. 

Let's continue to build on the momentum we’ve gained over the past several years, finish our fundraising to pay off the Warren Residence Hall and help Tau Chapter become the best chapter in the country.

I encourage you to get involved. The return will be worth your while. I promise you will be impressed and that you will have fun with our activities, seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

I wish all of you a safe, happy and memorable holiday season. Thanks and take care.

“203 West 19th Street Boys” Celebrate Kappa Sig 
Brotherhood at Annual Luncheon 
The annual gathering that Mac Thompson ’54 first organized in 2011 continues for a group of Tau brothers from 1950s initiation classes who have remained close over the years. This year’s reunion was held October 4 at the Armadillo Palace in Houston. 
From left: Charles Boyd ’52, Harry Terry ‘56, Bill Joplin ’57, Bob Draper ‘52, Mac Thompson ’54, Joe Jaworski ’54, Kirby Attwell ’54, Ronnie Glauser ‘55, Joe Russo ’52, Jim Westmoreland ‘56, Lynn Carter ’55, John Roberts ’56, Ross Stephenson ‘57, and Dick Kilday ’54. 
Joe Russo ’52 named the group the “203 West 19th Street Boys” in honor of the Kappa Sig house where they shared their UT years and the beginning of lifelong friendships. 

All of these men have contributed significantly to the Tau Legacy Capital Campaign and to the legacy of a strong Kappa Sigma alumni brotherhood. We hope their annual gathering continues for many years to come.
