SIGMA CHI FRATERNITY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA | EST. 1876 SPRING 2020 O n Saturday, February 29, Iota Iota Chapter hosted its first ever Sigma Chi Gala to celebrate our chapter's history, learn about the active members, and hear the plans for our future. In attendance were over 250 undergraduates, alumni, and guests, including family and friends alike. Also in attendance was former 70th Grand Consul Tommy Geddings, South Carolina '85, who gave us a great State of the General Fraternity address. Steve Pracht, Penn State '76, from the Sigma Chi Foundation gave us an update on the fundraising efforts supported by Sigma Chi, in particular the participation of Iota Iota in the Bell Chapter Challenge. We had the honor of announcing the latest Iota Iota brother to be named a Significant Sig! Congratulations to Fess St. John '79, who is the chancellor of the University of Alabama System and the third Iota Iota Sig to be named Significant Sig in the past three years! Those in attendance enjoyed a fantastic meal of filet mignon, danced the night away to long-loved Iota Iota Favorite Chevy Six, and enjoyed the history, brotherhood, and comrad- ery of fellow Sigma Chis ranging in age from recent initiates to some who have been brothers for over 50 years. Check out some pictures from the event by vis- iting machi2020/store. Tentative plans are being made to hold this event every two years, and we are open to suggestions on how to make future events even more successful than the first. I look forward to seeing everyone at the next gala. In hoc, Will Yeldell '86 Iota Iota House Corporation President (704) 519-9771 CELEBRATING THE BROTHERHOOD Iota Iota Chapter Hosts First Ever Sigma Chi Gala
