INDIANAPOLIS, IN - More than 87 years ago a young man had a decision to make - join TKE or not. As is the case for many members, this was not something to take lightly. It involved responsibilities of lifetime involvement, learning how to lead, and a commitment to develop the skills necessary to build a better world. In the end, he came to the conclusion TKE was right for him. He took the first confident step forward and never looked back. A Grand Officer, recipient of Alumnus of the Year, TEF Fraternity for Life, and Order of the Golden Eagle awards, inaugural member of Life Loyal Teke, and, perhaps his most influential contribution, endowing the top educational program in TKE the Leadership Academy – the late Frater Charles R. Walgreen, Jr. (Upsilon, Univ. of Michigan) never hesitated to give of his time and financial support to ensure more men could gain the experience he was so thankful for.
In celebration of what would be his 107th Birthday, the challenge to build yourself as a better man lies in the institute that honors his name – The Charles R. Walgreen, Jr. TKE Leadership Academy. You, like Frater Walgreen, have taken that first step. Now is the time to become the man TKE knows you can be. Apply for the 27th installment of this storied program today.
Since this program was developed, it has steadily incorporated tools you can't learn in the classroom. You will be challenged to go beyond your comfort zone and develop into a difference-maker. Words will turn into action. The life you once led will be changed forever. Fraters from around the TKE Nation will join you in this week-long adventure June 7-11 at the La Foret Conference and Retreat Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
