Leslie ’68 Selected For Sigma Chi’s Top Honor
Order of Constantine Class of 2013
Tom Leslie ’68 is Delta Delta’s newest inductee into the Order of Constantine. Tom was one of 14 brothers chosen as part of the Class of 2013. He is Delta Delta’s eighth member of Sigma Chi’s most prestigious honorary.
Tom has been an ongoing and active member of Delta Delta’s House Corporation since 1985 when he joined the Board and served as House Corporation President from 1987 to 2007. Tom’s active involvement took the chapter through two major renovation projects and many significant changes over the years.
During the 1988 Renovation additional living space was added to the structure and significant safety improvements including updated wiring and HVAC systems were made. Throughout the project Tom traveled from Indianapolis and met several times a week with the construction firm to ensure that the project met our expectations and was completed on time. Tom was also instrumental in working with the campaign leadership for the 2007 fund raising and renovation of the Delta Delta Chapter House.
A Strong Undergraduate Advocate
Former Chapter Advisor Phil Steele ’77 noted, “Throughout Tom’s many years on the Board he has been a strong advocate for the undergraduates and their role in managing the affairs of the chapter. Tom has continually sought to maintain the proper perspective between alumni and undergraduate responsibilities in the daily activities at the chapter. It was this strong leadership that has allowed the undergraduates to grow as young men while being provided appropriate guidance and support when needed.”
A History of Service to Sigma Chi
A member of the Indianapolis Alumni Chapter since 1972, Tom won that organization’s Hoosier Sig of the Year honors in 1997. He was proud to help install the Iota Sigma chapter at Valparaiso University in 1990, and most recently in 2012, assisted in organizing and currently serves on an advisory committee for the Theta Pi chapter at Indiana State University where his son John Paul [Theta Pi, 2013] is a senior.
Tom is a tremendous example of a life-long commitment to our Fraternity. His tenure at Delta Delta and involvement at Theta Pi make Brother Leslie a very deserving recipient of the Order of Constantine. Congratulations Brother Leslie.
