High Alpha Summit: Day 1
Day 1: Inaugural High Alpha Summit begins
By Kyle Jones (Montevallo)
The inaugural High Alpha Summit kicked off in Washington D.C. on Jan. 8 with Lambda Chi CEO Bill Farkas welcoming close to 100 participants.
Chapter and colony presidents across the country assembled for the three-day event to participate in fraternity programming and education so that they may be better prepared to face the challenges encountered at the chapter and colony level.
Brother and Congressman Kevin Brady (South Dakota ’77), who has represented Texas’s 8th congressional district since 1997, opened the event by sharing his wisdom and experience on leadership to an eager crowd of young leaders.
“As men we are not truly measured by our position, or our salary, or the things we own,” said Brady. “That is how we are measured in society. What truly matters is how our character is measured and if we are respected by those that we respect.”
“I thought Congressman Brady was great,” said Ian Kinne of TCU. “Its nice to have a man in power who is a great example to other Lambda Chis, someone that we can aspire to be like.”
“The great thing about being a Lambda Chi besides the fellowship, growing yourself and trying to be a leader,” said Brady. “Is that you get to meet and work with other leaders, within the chapter and at other colleges, it helps you become a better leader yourself.”
“Having something like this where we can exchange experiences and talk about what works and what doesn’t as well as being able to challenge each other is truly critical,” he added.
The High Alpha Summit continues throughout the weekend until Jan. 11. with additional speakers and education sessions.
