Mentoring the Next Generation

Letter from the Editor

In the latest issue of The Delta we chronicle the life of one brother whose legacy of service illustrates the relevance of fraternity for future generations. Despite the myriad activities available to college students today, fraternities remain the only student organization in a position to foster mentoring relationships that span multiple generations. 

Brother Tom Lofton (Butler/Indiana), who entered Chapter Eternal last summer, devoted his life to helping collegiate brothers develop into ethical leaders prepared to transform their communities. An attorney by trade, Br. Lofton also played an integral role in establishing the framework for charitable organizations, including the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation, which provides scholarships and grants to support the fraternity’s educational programs. 
Our second feature story highlights the distinguished career of an Air Force pilot recognized with the Silver Star for his service during the Vietnam War.

Between flying hundreds of missions in Southeast Asia, Brother Tom Lockhart (West Virginia) also spent time as a flight instructor where he would befriend a future U.S. president. Now retired in Sedona, Ariz., Brother Lockhart volunteers to teach kids about the importance of learning history and practicing good citizenship.

Inside the latest issue you’ll also find a showcase of the 2014-15 award winners along with a photo essay capturing the 2016 College of Chapter experience in Lexington and Roanoke, Va. If you haven’t already screened our mini-documentary chronicling the College of Chapters experience of two collegiate commanders, we encourage you to visit our YouTube page at youtube.com/sigmanuhq. 

We hope you enjoy these stories and the rest of the Spring 2016 issue. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for stories we should consider in a future issue. Comments, questions, and letters to the editor can be sent to news@sigmanu.org. 

Yours in Sigma Nu,

Nathaniel Clarkson (James Madison)
