A historic occasion was achieved this week for Tau Kappa Epsilon International Fraternity.
For the first time since 1993, TKE has recruited and initiated over 4,000 new men for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Tau Kappa Epsilon has grown stronger every year for the last 7 years. This year, on average, the 268 chapters and colonies in TKE Nation recruited and initiated 15 new members. Tau Kappa Epsilon has now surpassed 268,000 initiates since our founding in 1899.
"This is truly a historic occasion for Tau Kappa Epsilon. Thanks to the support of a tremendous volunteer team, alumni, Grand Council, the hard work of our collegiate men and all of the Professional Staff, we were able to accomplish this feat," said Tau Kappa Epsilon Chief Executive Officer, Donald E. Aldrich.
Through the efforts of Tekes across the country, Tau Kappa Epsilon is stronger. With our growth, we are able to make a bigger impact on our local campus and communities. We have more men to help us achieve our goal to raise one million dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. As we continue to grow, we are able to build Better Men for a Better World.
This is a very proud moment for Tau Kappa Epsilon. Thank you TKE Nation for all of your efforts! Now on to the 2014-2015 fiscal year!
