Alumni Brothers Contribute to Horizons Experience
Dave True ’73 and Mark Sand ’73 had the opportunity in June to spend a couple days at Sigma Chi’s Horizons program in Snowbird, UT as Distinguished Visitors.
Horizons is a leadership development experience for qualified undergraduate Sigma Chis with at least two years remaining in college, and who wish to improve their understanding of leadership as it relates to personal development, group dynamics, and intentional efforts to make positive change in the world.
The program is offered at no cost to the participants thanks to the generous support of the Sigma Chi Foundation and the Sigma Chi Canadian Foundation.
Brother Sand stated, “We were very impressed with the program and encouraged to see the caliber of active sophomore attendees fully taking part. They were supported by very capable and enthusiastic alumni who dedicated their time to make this investment in leadership possible.”
Mark remarked further, “When I listen to brothers describe the challenges that so many chapters endure with inadequate housing; unbalanced press reporting; negative pressure from the universities; and lack of alumni support; it brings home how much stress the whole Greek system is facing. Delta Delta has truly been blessed as a chapter.”
Dave and Mark enjoyed meeting David Kratzman ‘21, a ME major from Fort Wayne. Mark noted, “David loves Purdue, Delta Delta, his community and his family. When we learned his sun tan was acquired while mowing 50 lawns a week with his business partner, we knew the rush process had picked a winner! It was not a surprise David was selected to attend Horizons.”
We want to thank Brothers Sand and True for sharing their time and life experiences with so many undergraduate brothers.
