Tau Kappa Epsilon Thanks Shirley Mills, Todd Farmer for Their Decades of Service
INDIANAPOLIS - Tau Kappa Epsilon announces with deep gratitude for decades of service, that Shirley Mills and Todd Farmer (Xi-Theta, West Georgia) depart the TKE Professional Staff.
Donald E. Aldrich, TKE's Chief Executive Officer, shared "Shirley Mills and Todd Farmer both represent passion, dedication, and love of Tau Kappa Epsilon. We are indebted to them for their selflessness and sacrifice to serve others. TKE is better today due to their investment in our Fraternity for 38 and 28 years respectively. Most importantly, they are tremendous people who built countless relationships and memories with members and non-members across TKE Nation. They will forever remain members of our TKE family."
Since 1983, Shirley Mills has been a critical behind-the-scenes member of the Professional Staff. She processed new member records for decades, ensuring these men receive their materials as new candidates and initiates. She reviewed chartering documents meticulously to be approved by the Grand Chapter or the Grand Council. She pulled vital contact lists to share with alumni associations, chapter officers, volunteers, and fellow staffers. Shirley did all of this never looking for recognition or attention. She served our mission for 38 years with class and now will enjoy a well-earned retirement where she plans to travel.
Since 1993, Todd Farmer has been a passionate advocate of Tau Kappa Epsilon. He is a student of TKE history and enjoyed sharing stories of our Founders and the legends of the Fraternity that have carved a legacy in the past 122 years. Todd worked all across TKE Nation (serving the Northeast, West, and most recently the South) as well as in the role of Alumni Engagement Director. Frater Farmer is the recipient of the Order of the Silver Maple Leaf, Grand Prytanis Award, Key Leader Award and the TKE Foundation's Medal of Excellence. Frater Farmer has shown his love for Tau Kappa Epsilon many times over throughout his career and will remain in the Indianapolis area. He plans to engage with his home chapter’s Alumni Association in Georgia, and attend TKE events in the future.
We thank these two dedicated servants to Tau Kappa Epsilon and wish them every happiness in the future.
The Grand Council of Tau Kappa Epsilon has released our 2020-2025 Strategic Plan. Looking for a way to contribute to the future of TKE? Make a gift to Life Loyal Teke today.
