Over 108 brothers attended this year’s Homecoming and the celebration of our 120th anniversary making it the most well attended Iota gathering since Centennial. Brothers came from as far away as California (Neil Ormond, Tim Stapleton and Thad Davis) to Colorado (Roger Davidson) to D.C. (Tyson Hinds) to Montana (Bob Blair) and from all around Texas (Jesse Blalock from Kingwood, Robert Barton from Kerrville, and Billy Davis from Georgetown).
Festivities included a poker tournament, champagne toast, and awards reception. And a little partying. Over 210 people attended the afternoon reception including Southwestern offi cials such as President Schrum, Iota actives, alumni, family and friends. A solemn and heartfelt moment occurred with a reading of passed brothers and moment of silence. Matt Barnes’ lineage project got off to a great start and will be unveiled at Alum Weekend 2007.
A big thanks to Bruce Barrick and Erik Harpst for planning a phenomenal Homecoming and 120th Anniversary. We look forward to a huge turnout at Alumni Weekend March 30th – April Fool’s Day when the Alumni lay the smack down on the actives in the annual Active/Alumni softball game.
