Old Bro News & Notes - Sept. 2012

Old Bro Network is happy to announce the addition of ONE new Old Bro this week, and he's another of the "transfer" Old Bro's who was initiated elsewhere, then came to his senses and started hanging out with the EpSigs.

Please welcome Bob Schulenberg (Iota Gamma 99), who was initiated at Fresno St. before becoming part of the "50's era" Old Bro's at UCLA.  "Stud of the Week" honors go to Stan Benson (EpSig 305) for making sure that Bob got hooked up with the Old Bro Network.

This brings the total roster count for the Old Bro Network up to 303 and, as always, if anyone of you has contact info on any EpSigs who are currently NOT on the roster, send it in and I'll get them added.

Also this week, Steve Aylward (EpSig 838) sent in an updated email address, that has been distributed to all as well.  Again, if your contact info ever changes or is somehow incorrect, send me a note and I'll fix it.

Several Old Bro's posted photos of the shuttle Endeavour's last flight over Los Angeles this week, such as .....

However, what I'll bet that you DIDN'T KNOW was that not one, but TWO Lambda Chis flew missions on Endeavour during its long career with NASA.
 
Colonel Thomas Akers, from Alpha Delta zeta at University of Missouri-Rolla, flew on missions STS-49 and STS-61, and Colonel Terrence Wilcutt, from Lambda Lambda zeta at Western Kentucky University, flew on missions STS-68 and STS-89.
 
Endeavour will be on display starting October 30 at the California Science Center in Exposition Park, adjacent to the LA Memorial Coliseum and across the street from that other university across town. 
 
So you may now consider yourselves SLIGHTLY better educated .....
 
Cheers,
MJH
