What Lambda Means to Me

Beginning with this issue, we are launching a new series called, “What Lambda Means to Me,” in which we’ll ask Brothers to share their stories of why they stay connected. First up in the series is Executive Board member Hewitt Heiserman '82. Read on to see what Hewit had to say!

"Lambda meant laughs the first time I walked into Old Kenyon’s West Wing in August 1978, and it still means laughs today, albeit more digitally than in-person (You know what they say about laughter). I joined the Alumni Association a couple of years ago because our existence was threatened, and I wanted to pitch in and help out. As before, our Chapter today offers a chance to make friendships, acquire leadership skills and help others. I've enjoyed renewing old friendships, and also making new friendships with Brothers from different eras. Some of the finest men I know are Lambda Dekes, including Walter Butler, our former Alumni Association President. Biff travelled to Gambier about 30 times to argue our case. Now with his worthy successor, Sam Adams, at the helm, our next step is to get back to the fourth floor of the West Wing."
