Greatest Accomplishment of 2019-20: We raised over $162,000 for St. Jude in a virtual fundraiser which was a huge accomplishment in showing what our chapter’s character was all about even during the tough times of COVID-19. We won our Top TKE Award from our national headquarters for the 8th year in a row which is based on recruitment numbers, philanthropy, GPA, community service, chapter involvement, and overall quality of the chapter. Over the last 4 years our chapter has raised over 25% of the entire funds raised by the entire TKE International Organization for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Because of this, TKE Headquarters has committed to raising $10 million for St. Jude over the next 10 years and has raised the standard in out motto of making better men for a better world.
