  • Former Grand Eta George MacDonald Enters Chapter Eternal

    By | Alumni News, Media Statements, National News | 9 Comments

    Brothers & Friends,

    It saddens us to announce the passing of former Grand Eta and truly great Chi Phi, George MacDonald, Kappa Delta 1971, Iota Zeta 1989, Eta Theta 2011.

    Brother MacDonald entered Chapter Eternal peacefully in hospice care this morning after a long and valiant battle with cancer. Known for his passion for Chi Phi and unparalleled drive to see our Brothers succeed, he will perhaps be remembered best as “The Grand Reveler.”

    For two decades, Brother MacDonald dedicated himself to our Brotherhood in the capacity of Grand Eta and as Legal Counsel to the Chi Phi Educational Trust. Most recently, he continued his Grand Council career as a Member-at-Large. At various times, he also served as Alumni Advisor to the Kappa Delta Chapter at University of Rochester, the Iota Zeta Chapter at George Mason University, and the Eta Theta Chapter at University of Maryland; Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary of the National Capital Chi Phi Club; and Governor, Trustee, and Treasurer of the Chi Phi Educational Trust. Brother MacDonald is also the namesake of Chi Phi’s Risk Manager of the Year Award, given to an outstanding Chapter Eta at Congress.

    He was always eager to lend an ear and advice to any Brother in need, no matter who or when. His drive to work alongside our undergraduate Brothers to promote their health and safety was always at the forefront of his mind. Our Fraternity’s longevity owes itself in no small part to his efforts.

    The true embodiment of a Gentleman and a Chi Phi, Brother MacDonald will be missed by all.

    Brother MacDonald’s family has asked that anyone wishing to honor him should make a gift to the Chi Phi Educational Trust in his name. You can donate online at chiphi.org/donate or by mail to:

  • Iota Delta Brother, Paleobiologist, Receives 2019 Cronkite Award

    By | Alumni News, National News | No Comments

    Since its establishment in 1990, the Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. Award has been granted by the Grand Council to only nineteen Brothers whose humanitarian, social, or political achievement benefitted our country, educational system, or society. A governor, civil rights activist, Hollywood producer, US Senator, and Cronkite himself are among those honored these past three decades.

    More than forty Iota Delta Brothers and their guests attended the Congressional Banquet on June 22 to honor Chi Phi’s nineteenth recipient: Ronald L. Richards, Iota Delta 1971.

    Brother Richards is the first paleobiologist to be honored with the Cronkite Award. He graduated from Indiana University Bloomington in 1971. Since 1980, he has worked in various capacities with the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis, beginning as a volunteer and contract laborer and working the way up to his current role as Senior Research Curator of Paleobiology. Among fifty-five years of experience with excavations are no fewer than fourteen recoveries of mastodon fossils throughout Indiana.

    In addition to his prolific fieldwork, Brother Richards has written extensively on Ice Age fauna with thirty works for the Indiana Academy of Science and seventy for other organizations, universities, geology clubs, and civic clubs in the state and nationwide. He has also served as a Grant Reviewer for the National Geographic Society and the National Science Foundation.

    He has long credited his Chi Phi Brothers with fostering a love of excavation when they explored caves near Indiana University’s campus together. During his acceptance speech at the Congressional Banquet, Brother Richards recounted the adventures with his Iota Delta Chapter Brothers, many of whom were present to celebrate him.

    Through a career rooted in research and a commitment to better understanding of the world which once was in order to educate those around him, Brother Richards has displayed the Values of Chi Phi and a True Gentleman. Congratulations, Brother, on this well-deserved honor!

    “I would hope that in future years, as our Grand Council ponders the names of potential honorees, that it look long and hard at those who may not gain national fame but who devote great effort and much of their time trying to improve their local communities and the lot of their neighbors.”

    – Walter Cronkite, Nu 1937

  • It Could Have Been Any of Us

    By | Alumni News, National News, Philanthropy/Community Service | No Comments

    Originally published in the fall 2018 edition of The Chi Phi Chakett, Brother Felt’s story was recently recognized by the Fraternity Communications Association (FCA) with the 2nd Place Award for News Feature. FCA member include 71 social and honorary Greek organizations and governing bodies, including the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC).

    Looking out across the landscape filled with lush grass, wildflowers, and trees, one would never suspect the tragedy that occurred there just seventeen years ago. The only visible reminder of that day sits at the edge of a grove of hemlocks, the trees themselves now recovered from the damage they sustained. Now that the scars on the land have healed, there is only a boulder left to mark the impact site of United Airlines Flight 93 – the Sacred Ground. Though the physical reminders of the crash are gone, the wounds of loss are still fresh in the hearts of the friends and families of the heroes of Flight 93. For seventeen years, Gordie Felt, Alpha-Chi 1985, has sought to help heal those wounds through the establishment of the Flight 93 National Memorial. He knows well the feelings of loss; his brother Ed was one of the forty crewmembers and passengers who lost their lives when Flight 93 crashed.

    It Could Have Been Any of Us

    “Ed and the 39 other passengers and crewmembers that were on Flight 93 were all in many ways very unique individuals from all over the world. But also, in many ways, they were just like the rest of us; they were parents, they were brothers, they were spouses. I think that part of the story of September 11, particularly Flight 93, is that it could have been any of us on that flight,” Brother Felt reflected.

    It was the normalcy of the flight and of the people on it – college students, retirees, teachers, and Ed, who worked as a system engineer for a software company – which makes the heroic fight that the passengers made in their final moments all the more remarkable.

    Among the many calls and recordings from Flight 93 on that day – including the Cockpit Voice Recorder which captured the final words of the passengers who breached the cockpit and attempted to retake the plane – is the final cell phone call from Flight 93, and the only one to reach a 911 operator, made by Ed. His last-minute call to ground personnel allowed the operator to contact emergency services in the next county over and inform them that a large, hijacked commercial flight had been taken down – a fact that had not yet even reached the military. Had anyone survived the crash, Ed’s final call to alert first responders to the scene would have been lifesaving.

    Memory

    Within hours of first responders arriving from all over Somerset County, local citizens were the first to establish a memorial for the forty heroes. And they have been there with the Families of Flight 93 ever since.

    “It’s been unbelievable,” according to Brother Felt. “That whole community has really become an extension of our greater Families of Flight 93. They have opened their arms to us as family members and accepted this Memorial with a certain degree of pride; they were the first ones who were there.”

    The Families of Flight 93 has worked hand-in-hand with the local community, National Park Service, the National Park Foundation, and the Friends of Flight 93 (a similar organization to their own) to create the Flight 93 National Memorial. This September, seventeen years since the day that changed the United States, the final piece of the Memorial was put in place.

    Uncertainty

    Though today the Flight 93 National Memorial is now complete, just a few short years ago it was nearly a vision unfulfilled. As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approached, the government and civic organizations had hit a brick wall while fundraising for the Memorial. Unlike the other two sites that met with tragedy that day, Shanksville had neither the same federal funding as the Pentagon nor were corporations moving to back the Memorial like those which had lost employees at the World Trade Center. Simply put: They were out of money.

    “We really were starting with nothing,” Brother Felt said while recalling the fundraising efforts they undertook. Though a small portion of the site was donated, the task of raising more than $40 million for portions of the Memorial itself fell on the Families of Flight 93, the National Park Foundation, and other organizations.

    Creation

    The Memorial is now an established site within a vast tract of parkland, but the area surrounding it is, in many ways, still as rural and difficult to access as it was in 2001. Approaching the site through the many winding roads of western Pennsylvania, visitors are welcomed by signs along the way directing them to the various historic covered bridges, the occasional tavern, and stone homes dating back to past centuries. Entering the gates of the Memorial requires that visitors still drive for several minutes before reaching the museum and visitors center, and the Sacred Ground itself still further.

    The Tower of Voices was designed as imposing; the 93-foot tall structure is the first piece of the Memorial that visitors see when entering the site. Its stark, industrial appearance contrasts with the flowery, green environment that now surrounds it. Its height is no coincidence; architect Paul Murdoch built numbers into how the Tower memorializes the forty heroes of Flight 93. Forty chimes adorn the Tower, each measuring between five and ten feet long and weighing up to 150 pounds. Each chime creates its own unique sound as the wind passes through – each one with its own voice.

    Dedication

    As the final piece of the Flight 93 National Memorial, the Tower of Voices provided a sort of closure, not only for the project itself, but for families, friends, and the community. Despite the chilly weather and steady rainfall during the dedication on September 9, a devoted showing of onlookers was present for the ceremony.

    Brother Felt sensed the effect that this final ceremony had while watching with other spectators; families and friends of those on Flight 93, local residents, first responders, and complete strangers who came to show their support.

    Speaking on behalf of the Families of Flight 93 that day was Calvin Wilson, brother-in-law of First Officer LeRoy Homer Jr. In the midst of describing the partnerships and friendships formed, the land purchased, and the money raised, Mr. Wilson reflected, “and then there’s the families. The Families of Flight 93. That wasn’t just a title for us; we are truly a family. We bickered, we hugged, we yelled, we screamed, but we had one goal in mind; and that was to make sure that our loved ones were remembered not only by name, but for their actions.”

    “There is one individual,” he continued as he fought back emotion, “who has been like the father figure, the referee, our representative, across the nation, in the families, and in the executive group. He has represented us strong for fifteen years. This man has led us not from the front, not from the back, but at our sides. We can’t tell him enough how much we appreciate it and how much we love him, but we tried.” Mr. Wilson invited Brother Felt to the stage, where he was presented with a plaque as a thank you from the families for his efforts as President of the Families of Flight 93 for fifteen years.

    Brother Felt and others were then led to the base of the Tower. There, family members and dignitaries officially dedicated the final piece of the Memorial and opened the chimes. As an ever-silent audience looked on, the winds sweeping through the field hit the Tower, which began its song for the first time.

    Future

    With the Flight 93 National Memorial complete, Brother Felt’s work would seem finished; but this is far from true. As life moves forward and the Families of Flight 93 continues to work toward preserving the memories of the forty heroes, he intends to continue working at their sides to support the Memorial and the community which has formed around it. The memory of the selfless actions of Ed and the other thirty-nine heroes of Flight 93 will continue to inspire awe, humility, and reverence for generations to come.

    “The thing I want you to take away today, is that I want you to understand that we need to continue with the spirit of the forty heroes. We can’t lay down, we must come together as a diversified, unbiased group, understand what the problem is, come up with the solution, and then act upon it.”

  • 105 from UC Davis Reunite

    By | Alumni News | No Comments

    On the second Saturday of October, the Brothers, friends, and significant others of the Sigma Delta Chapter from UC Davis met again, this time 105 strong from the graduation years of 1984 to 1990.

    The thought of a reunion started at a kids’ soccer game last year when Jeff Galdes, Sigma Delta 1987, and I came together. With the help of Eric Mariotti, Sigma Delta 1989; Simo Rodich, Sigma Delta 1986; and Mike Babot, Sigma Delta 1985, we found as many graduates as we could and started planning.

    The Mariotti family generously agreed to hold the event at their home in Martinez, California, and Brothers and friends came from six different states to celebrate old – but never forgotten – friendships.

    It was one of those days in life that do not come around often, yet leave an indelible impression on you. How sweet life is when you are surrounded by people you love. So many friends reconnected, some after not seeing each other since graduation. The time and distance between us melted instantly away in hugs and happy tears and gut-busting laughter of the times we spent together. We learned of many smaller groups of Chi Phi’s that became life-long “families” forged in the days before anyone was married or had kids to brag about and careers and lives as adults to share.

    Our humble message to all of you; don’t wait to do this at your Chapter. We are all still talking about it we can’t wait to do it again. October 2020 is right around the corner!

    Adam Cipriano, Sigma Delta 1988

    The Sigma Delta Chapter at the University of California, Davis is celebrating 50 years as a Chapter, founded May 31, 1969. The Valley Alumni Association and Sigma Delta Chapter are hosting an Alumni Banquet on June 1, 2019. For full details and to RSVP May 10, click the button below. We hope you can make it!

  • USC Alumni Reunite at Eta Delta to Celebrate 50 Years

    By | Alumni News | No Comments

    Brothers from the New Member Classes of 1965-1967 returned to Los Angeles this November to celebrate 50 years of Brotherhood, and, of course, to cheer on their beloved Trojans. Homecoming weekend saw them face off with the University of California, home of our Lambda Chapter, but the weekend was really all about Eta Delta.

    Steve Felice, Eta Delta 1970, was instrumental in organizing the weekend and was gracious enough to open his home to Brothers that Sunday for a backyard picnic. Some Brothers in attendance had not seen each other for nearly 50 years!

    The occasion was a huge draw for Brothers from all over the country, including Mickey Koleszar, Eta Delta 1970, who made the trip to Los Angeles from his home in Connecticut; “We were able to catch up on each other’s lives and to tell countless stories about the great times we all had at Chi Phi during the late 60’s. A good time was had by all and we have decided to make this an annual event!”

    Do you know Brothers making an impact on their community, profession, or Chapter? Submit your stories by emailing Director of Member Engagement Dan Coutcher so the Fraternity can continue to recognize our members for their outstanding efforts.




  • Auburn Alum’s Architecture Designs Honored

    By | Alumni News | No Comments

    Calvin Durham, AIA, NCARB, Mu Delta 1988, was once again recognized for his work by the North Alabama Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), this time for his design of a museum in Florence, Alabama.

    The Florence Indian Mound Museum is dedicated to the interpretation of the prehistory of the Shoals area, which stretches back more than 10,000 years. The Florence Indian Mound itself is roughly 2,000 years old. With many prehistoric American mounds no longer standing due to encroaching farms, industry, or extensive excavation, the museum has committed itself to a dialogue on environmental stewardship and preservation.

    Brother Durham’s design for the 3,400 square foot building keeps the mound as its focus and even draws on its shape. The exterior of the building includes native cypress wood and the cast stone includes an explorer’s map of the Tennessee River, mound, and surrounding area. Also carved into the exterior stones are petroglyphs of the local Woodland Indians, serving both as a design element and as an educational tool.

    The mound itself also presented a challenge for Brother Durham’s project, as the narrow space allocated for the museum posed difficulties for the heavy construction equipment, increasing the risk of damaging the ancient earthwork. Careful consideration was taken with every step, however, and the museum was erected according to plan and without any incident.

    Brother Durham and his firm were presented the North Alabama Chapter Honor Award for Design Excellence for their work, the highest honor offered by the organization. The award was given based on recommendation from a panel of architects who considered on the museum’s design challenges and appreciated the unobstructed view of the mound from almost every corner of the building.

  • Three Brothers Achieve Goliard Status

    By | Alumni News, Chapter News, National News | No Comments

    The Regional Ritual Retreats of 2018 provided nearly 100 members with an opportunity to invest themselves in our heritage and Ritual and walk away as a resource for our Brothers across the country. The Goliard Program has significant ties to RRR, as many of the Alumni facilitators are themselves Goliards and certified experts in our Ritual. The Goliard status, coveted among many, was conferred upon three Brothers at RRR this year.

    Eric Weiss, Kappa Delta 2019, gained recognition as a Goliard during the Northeast RRR at Lehigh University, where he completed a proficiency exam and performed essential Ritual duties without written aid. Brother Weiss, the Chapter’s Delta and former Epsilon, has been deeply affected by learning more about Chi Phi’s heritage and Ritual and reflected on the experience after RRR:

    Brothers Weiss, Scheller, and Davis.

    “Last year, I attended RLA where Grand Epsilon Matt Scheller, Psi 2007, gave a talk on Ritual. I was shocked to discover that our Fraternity has many of the classic secrets that my Chapter had never taught: Passwords, Unwritten Law, and even a secret handshake. My Pledge of secrecy and the entire New Member process suddenly made more sense as I finally got a glimpse of the secrets that I am bound to protect. I learned the full challenge that year at Congress after getting denied entry twice. Shortly before RRR, my fellow Congressional Delegate and I decided to join the Goliard Program. We believed that this would be an excellent opportunity to learn about all of the Ritual and history of our nearly 200 year old fraternity, and that it was crucial to incorporate Fraternity traditions into our struggling Chapter.

    Now having gone through the program, I have a strong foundation in Chi Phi ritual and history, and am excited to bring what I have learned to chapters wishing to learn more. That said, I still have much to learn, and am looking forward to working with fraternity leadership as well as other goliards to continue my studies and to strengthen ritual on a national level.

    Chapters of the Chi Phi Fraternity, I strongly encourage sending a couple of Brothers to RRR, especially those who might be interested in the Goliard Program. Our Ritual is what binds us together and teaches us the Values we hold so dear. RRR not only teaches Ritual, but explains its continual relevance and importance, and leaves Brothers enthusiastic about our history and traditions. If we live by our Values and live our Ritual, we can show universities, the media, and the broader community that our Fraternity is a positive force built on Truth, Honor, and Personal Integrity.

    Two Alumni Brothers also attained Goliard status this summer; Grand Epsilon Matt Scheller, Psi 2007, and Michael Davis, Alpha-Pi 2016, have worked diligently on preserving Chi Phi’s heritage through the archives and Greek Life Museum while also forming the Regional Ritual Retreats into one of the Fraternity’s premier and most loved educational programs.

    The Fraternity is privileged to have so many men like Brothers Weiss, Scheller, and Davis who have helped Build Better Men at every opportunity. Congratulations to them on a well-earned distinction!

    The Goliard Program is an educational program designed to encourage in-depth learning into the Heritage and History of our Fraternity. Those wishing to enter the program will advance through several stages, known as Chambers, with an eventual certification upon completion. These certified “Goliards” will be the experts on the History, Ceremonies, and Traditions of Chi Phi, and will be called upon to assist other Brothers and Chapters throughout the country when help, advice, or guidance is needed.

    The program is designed to train those who could assist the Fraternity in educating other Brothers on a Chapter by Chapter basis or at potential future Ritual Educational Programs. Therefore, it is important to note that those looking to complete the Goliard Program should have at least a very basic understanding of the Chi Phi Fraternity’s Ritual and History.

    You can download the full Goliard Program and application packet on Chi Phi Connect. Email Heritage & Traditions Counselor Clark Kjorlaug at kjorlaug@chiphi.org with any questions about the program.




  • Celebrating our 2018 Award Recipients

    By | Alumni News, Chapter News, National News | One Comment

    Congratulations to our 2018 award recipients! We are honored to recognize you for your outstanding work this past year and look forward to seeing our Brothers continue Building Better Men through Fraternity and Community.

    The Fraternity was honored to recognize 15 outstanding Chapters, Colonies, and Associations, and 14 hard working individuals during the 153rd Congressional Banquet on the evening of June 23.

    Among the many accolades given, Benjamin Bloom received the first George M. MacDonald Risk Manager Award, adopted at the 152nd Congress in honor of our past Grand Eta. It is worth noting that the Fraternity broke tradition in recognizing not one, but two outstanding Brothers with the William M. Byrd Alumnus of the Year Award. Brothers Blakeslee and Wolfgang have dedicated much of their time and energy over many years to the Fraternity and their Chapters, rendering it impossible to choose between them. This was one tradition worth breaking for them.

    Please join us in congratulating our Brothers and Chapters on all they have done!
