2015 Summer Staff Reunion

Updates from Lexington

During a beautiful weekend in August, Sigma Nu Headquarters was proud to host the 2nd Sigma Nu Staff Reunion which brought together past and current members of the Sigma Nu Staff, along with their families, to share stories, memories, and fellowship at a place so many have called home. The attendees ranged from those who had worked for Sigma Nu upon its original move to Lexington, Va., to our most current group of Leadership Consultants.

The weekend kicked off on August 7th with a meet-and-greet reception on the patio of the Headquarters property where attendees were greeted by Staff Reunion Committee members Grand Historian Bob McCully (San Diego State), David Glassman (Eastern Michigan), Chris Healy (Fresno State), Director of Alumni and Volunteer Programs Todd Denson (Nichols State), and Executive Director Brad Beacham (Texas Christian). As a capstone to the evening, an impromptu rendition of “White Star of Sigma Nu” was sung.

Saturday morning kicked off with a golf scramble at the Lexington Golf and Country Club followed by tours of the Headquarters property led by Sigma Nu Educational Foundation President Brad Hastings (West Georgia) as well as Virginia Military Institute, Washington and Lee University, and the town of Lexington. An afternoon lunch, catered by one of Lexington’s well known restaurants, Southern Inn, was hosted on the back lawn of Headquarters. Saturday afternoon included additional tours but was also a time for past and present staff to enjoy longtime favorite summer activities in Lexington such as a trip to the Maury River at Goshen Pass or a cruise down Lee Highway to take in the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley.

The weekend’s formal festivities were capped off on Sunday night with a closing banquet in the prestigious Hall of Valor located in Marshal Hall at VMI. The shared commitment to serving our proud Fraternity rooted in Honor was a perfect fit for the Hall of Valor where Director of the VMI Museum System Colonel Keith Gibson spoke to the group about the walls of the Hall of Valor which are adorned with medals donated by VMI Cadets who served as citizen soldiers. The banquet was emceed by Lexington local and past Vice Regent James Owens (Charleston) who shared some notable stories of past staff teams and presented a gift to the Reunion Committee members to thank them for their hard work in organizing a memorable weekend.

As dinner ended, handshakes, laughs, smiles, and hugs were shared among the men and women who served and continue to serve the Fraternity with distinction and honor with many remaining for hours to soak in every last drop of the fellowship that bonded them together years ago and continue to do so today.
