Welcome to our new and improved Lambda DKE Alumni Website. We have recently implemented a brand-new Alumni Relations Program in which we will be sending out monthly eLetters, print newsletters and updates to keep us all informed and connected.
When Doug Lanpher and DKE HQ staff were housecleaning boxes of old files not long ago, they came across a number of interesting old items that they did not have room to keep. Doug sent us the 1922 Lambda chapter report, a kind of early "Lambda Deke" type newsletter.
As a senior in the fraternity, it’s been a pleasure to hold responsibility and participate as much as I have been able to. With ambitions to see DKE rise to the top of Kenyon Greek Life, I would say the Chapter saw many high points over the year.
On April 7th Lambda initiated 14 outstanding new brothers. With Biff Butler ’68 and Sam Adams ’81 in attendance, Lambda’s worthy leadership Max Thesing ‘24 (Brother Beta) and C.J. Morris ‘23 (Brother Pi) led the initiates through our ancient rituals and found them not unworthy. A special treat was that brother Tom McCormick ’93, was able to surprise his son Thomas P. McCormick ’26 at his initiation, continuing Lambda’s long history of legacies.
We all gained invaluable lifelong benefits from DKE. Did you learn about leadership at DKE? Do the fraternity's core values play a role in your life today? Did you make a romantic or career connection thanks to DKE?
