Several TKE alumni were back on campus last weekend to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wabash Chapter reappearing on campus. The three men above took part in a panel that talk about the “early” days. Professor Eric Dean’s name came up in every paragraph as a guiding hand and mentor.
The story begins with a strong friendship – one man, a member of a fraternity, wants his friend to have the same opportunity. But the fraternities were not integrated back then. A classic situation – wait for things to change or make a difference and change them. “A” was the easiest answer – “B” was the choice!
And so a group of Wabash men brought TKE back to life. Fully integrated and full of opportunity. It took guts, vision, and determination…a Wabash profile in courage.
