2 Delta Kappa Epsilon CHAPTER HIGHLIGHTS Senior Spotlight: Bobby Cope '16 B obby Cope '17 is a senior from Mountain Brook, Alabama, completing a dual-enrollment program, where he will graduate in May 2017 with both a bachelor's and master's degrees in human environmental sciences. The tremendous accomplishment of completing a bachelor's and master's degree in four years is magnified by the fact that Bobby holds a perfect 4.0 GPA. Immediately after graduation, he will be eligible to sit for the Certified Financial Planner exam. After completing interviews with several firms in major Southeastern cities, Bobby has accepted a wealth management position with Willis Johnson and Associates in Houston, Texas. Because of Bobby's academic feats and oustanding character, he served as an example for new members to look up to during pledgeship. When asked about this year's pledge class, Bobby says, "I had the privilege of watching 49 new members grow close together and learn that they were becoming a part of something bigger than themselves." Not only did Bobby help the new members on their jouney to joining this fraternity, but he also served as a role model for them as freshmen students at the University of Alabama. Jackson Bowers '20 says, "I learned the importance of making good grades and balancing my social life with school from Bobby." Bobby says that his favorite thing about DKE is the "unprecedented brotherhood I have come to enjoy during my tenure at the University and, more importantly, the lifelong friends I have made from not only my pledge class, but every pledge class that has been a part of this Chapter since my freshman year." He credits DKE's success as a fraternity to our strong alumni base and to our faculty advisor Dr. Tim Hebson, Dean of Students. Although Bobby leaves us in May, we look forward to him visiting us as an alumnus in the future. We wish you the best luck and remember, Mr. Cope, it's never over.
