Tom served as House Corporation President for 20 years and a member of the Delta Delta House Corporation board for 30 years from 1985 to 2015. Tom’s legal background and commitment to the chapter ensured that the undergraduates and board members worked well together in addressing ongoing changes within the chapter house. He attended multiple Grand Chapters and Leadership Training workshops.
During his tenure as Board President he led two chapter house renovation campaigns. The first in 1988 added additional living space and made significant safety improvements including updated wiring and HVAC systems. This was an $800,000 campaign that Tom arranged financing and alumni contributions to support. Tom oversaw the construction efforts and was on site throughout the construction process.
In 2003 Tom was an integral part in the $7.4 million chapter house renovation campaign completed in 2007. He worked closely with the campaign’s fundraising and construction team leadership to complete what at the time was the largest chapter house renovation project by any Sigma Chi chapter. Tom has been recognized as Hoosier Sig of the Year.
