From the Editor



Welcome to our final quarterly edition of the Cross & Crescent for 2016.

I am very pleased to report that we have hired a new staff member, Taylor Grayson, who will be taking over as the editor of the Cross & Crescent in January 2017. Taylor graduated from Indiana University in May 2016 and has a wide variety of reporting and storytelling experience.  Her email is tgrayson@lambdachi.org if you would like to contact her with any suggestions or story ideas. We look forward to Taylor’s contributions and seeing how she evolves our online reporting. In addition to being our new editor, Taylor will also contribute to our social media and manage other communications-related projects.

In this issue, we pay tribute to former Grand High Alpha Rev. S. George “Doc” Dirghalli (Florida), one of the true spiritual leaders of our organization. He impacted thousands of Lambda Chis over his many decades of service. Former Lambda Chi staff member Kevin O’Neill (Syracuse), who attended Doc’s memorial service, gave one of the eulogies that we also have included in our tribute. In addition, we also pay honor to San Antonio Det. Benjamin Marconi (Texas A&M-Kingsville) who was murdered in a shooting. Our final tribute is to 102-year-old Gardnar Mulloy who was a World War II naval officer and a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. In addition, we profile the 2017 High Alpha Summit that is taking place in January and provide a summary of how to become an educational leadership consultant if any seniors are interested in applying. You will also find the latest Chapter News and Omegas.

Please remember to check cc.lambdachi.org for additional updates about what’s going on in Lambda Chi Alpha and with our chapters and members. We hope all of our members have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday and wish you the very best for 2017.

In ZAX and friendship,

Tad Lichtenauer
