Old Bro News & Notes - OCT 2013

Been a while since we've added to the ranks, so I'm pleased to announce the addition of THREE Old Bro's to the roster, bringing our total number up to 315.

First up is Mark Kimball (EpSig 654), special thanks go out to Bill Harrison for tuning Mark in to the Old Bro Network.  Mark has carved out a VERY distinguished career as a computer scientist and motion picture technologist, and we welcome him to the OBN.

Next up is Greg Giansiracusa (EpSig 863), who was referred to the OBN by Jim Scilacci.  If anyone out there runs across one of our Old Bro's who is currently NOT on the roster, send me a note and I'll get them hooked up as well.

Harrison & Scilacci earn "Stud of the Week" honors for helping to expand the Old Bro tribe.

Finally please welcome John Zona (EpSig 1309), who emailed in his contact info.

Also, Carver Chiu (EpSig 958) sent in revised contact info.

Vcards have been sent out for the additions and revisions, please update your records accordingly.

OBN always likes hearing about Old Bro's hooking up at a lunch, or a game, or anywhere for that matter ..... Carl Nelson sent in the photo above of some late 50's era Old Bro's enjoying a lunch together .....

Then Aaron Bendikson sent this in of Old Bro's getting together at a Bruin football game ..... GO BRUINS !!!

OBN is never ceased to be amazed by the accomplishments of studly EpSigs as they continue their lives beyond 10918 Strathmore ..... two of our brothers recently competed in the Herbalife Triathlon in LA, and BOTH of them placed in the top 10 for their age group.  Jim Botko (EpSig 867) came in seventh, check out the photo below of Jim cruising past Disney Hall .....

And on TOP of the podium, the 1st place gold medal winner for his age group, our very own Willy Reese (EpSig 923) ..... congrats to Willy and Jim for their achievements !!

Willy flashes the gold !!
If any of you other Old Bro's out there have any photos you'd like to share, send them in and I'll get them published for all to enjoy.  This website is YOURS to keep in touch with people, and sharing accomplishments throughout our lives is a great way to do so .....

The tradition of studliness continues at EpSig .....

Just a quick note to let all of you Old Bro's know what your New Bro's are accomplishing ......

At this summer's Stead Leadership Conference, a gathering of Lambda Chi chapters from all over the nation, EpSig took home FIVE awards for excellence .....

A new age has dawned for Epsilon-Sigma Zeta! Re-colonized just a few years ago and already 110 active members strong our Chapter has been recognized by UCLA as the top Fraternity in several categories (e.g. grades and standing in their "standards for excellence" program) and now recognized by our National Fraternity with these awards at the National Leadership Seminar that just took place this last week in Memphis:

(1) The Tozier Brown Public Affairs Project Award
(2) The Academic Achievement Award
(3) The Campus Involvement Award
(4) The Web Development Award

AND THE HIGHEST AWARD GIVEN....the GRAND HIGH ALPHA AWARD!! Kudos to these excellent students and their Alumni Advisor, Damon Anastasia, as well as, our Corp Board.

New Bro's at the Stead Leadership Conference 2013 pose with one of their MANY awards !!!

For all you Old Bro's out there, the Grand High Alpha Award is only given to chapters who exemplify a level of excellence for THREE years in a row, so our New Bro's are obviously gettin' it done at 10918 Strathmore .....

If you ever get the chance, drop by the house and meet some of these outstanding young men who are carrying on the tradition of studliness at EpSig .....
