The Chi Phi experience for me has been one that provided personal growth and leadership opportunities while a student at Lafayette College, and then evolved into a lifelong experience of new and lasting fraternal friendships.  Simply stated, Chi Phi has been an important part of my life.  In particular, Chi Phi friendships developed over more than fifty years are a part of my life.  For me now to be able to help provide young men seeking a mechanical engineering undergraduate degree financial support to become a Brother and share in the bonds of brotherhood as I was able to do is why I chose to participate in our Fraternity’s major capital campaign.  This campaign also provided me the opportunity to help fund the development of a museum within our National Headquarters building which will be devoted to the history of Chi Phi and the fraternal movement in our country.
