Tau Kappa Epsilon brothers return to LHU for memorial reunion
Brothers of the Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fraternity traveled to Lock Haven University for their annual TKE alumni Richard Weede Memorial Golf and Social Outing on Aug. 8. More than 30 TKE brothers, from the class of ’70 to ’81, came to The Haven for socializing, golfing, storytelling and brotherhood.
Brothers stayed on campus at Evergreen Commons, where they enjoyed the pool and patio. During their stay at Evergreen, the brothers entertained guests from the LHU Athletic Department, LHU Foundation, President Robert Pignatello and his partner Amy Molyneux.
The brothers also met Veronica Morrison, a senior at LHU and on the volleyball team. Morrison is the recipient of the Tau Kappa Epsilon Alumni Scholarship, which is awarded to a student-athlete who possesses great leadership qualities, character and integrity.
The brothers raised money for scholarships at LHU. They are building an endowed scholarship in memory of Gary Finken, ’71, who helped maintain their fellowship as alums. Their goal is $100,000 and are over halfway to the goal. They also provide small scholarship amounts to athletic teams as they gather funds through outings. They have an annual event in New Cumberland, where they golf, socialize and host an Antique Roadshow type of auction. All their efforts directly benefit their special projects and endowment.
The TKE brothers are dedicated to preserving LHU’s past, helping current students and paving the way for a brighter future at Lock Haven.
