Joe Wagner, Florida

By | Notes | No Comments

On March 20th, Joe Wagner was riding his motorcycle through the intersection of Archer Road and Newell Drive where he was tragically struck by a turning car. The resulting accident left Joe with multiple broken bones and lacerations, brain hemorrhages, and a loss of consciousness. Thankfully, a nearby off duty doctor was able to aid Joe until the paramedics arrived to rush Joe to Shands Hospital. He quickly underwent surgery, and the doctors, nurses, and staff members of Shands have been tirelessly aiding Joe. He is currently unresponsive and is in a very critical condition. He will undergo his second surgery on the morning of the 21st. Joe continues to fight despite the arduous task in front of him.

They raised close to $1,110 which will be added to their final total of donations at the end of philanthropy week in the spring. Before summer break, the Chapter will donate a grand total including the funds raised from that week plus this past event’s funds.

Brothers,

It is with profound sadness that I share with you today’s news of the death this weekend of Christopher Evan Walker, Gorham State ’16. Please keep the passing of our young brother in your hearts and thoughts in the coming days.  As you choose to express your thoughts and feelings on the passing of Brother Walker, please show respect to Christopher’s family and friends and choose your words wisely and graciously.

Thought the chapter is not currently active, we would ask the Gorham State chapter’s alumni to wear the Badge of the Fraternity draped in deep black for at least the next 60 days during those occasions when they would wear the Badge.  Other chapters’ and colonies’ members and alumni may choose to show their respect for the passing of Brother Walker by draping their badges or pins in deep black.

Thank you, Brothers, for your collective thoughts, prayers, and observance of the passing of Brother Walker.

Yours, In the Bond,

Crawford Selected to serve AFA

By | Notes | No Comments

James Crawford (Wilmington ’10) was recently elected to the Nominations and Elections Committee of the Association of Fraternity and Sorority Advisors (AFA). Those involved in the Board and committees of AFA are not only leaders of the Association but also stewards for the fraternity and sorority communities on a national scale. This appointment is a true testament to James’ hard work and dedication over the years and the faith that his colleagues have in his ability to make contributions to the industry as a whole.

“Being involved with AFA provides me the chance to represent my organization on a national level, continue to give back to the fraternity and sorority experience, and help lead the members of the organization along and the communities that we work with as professionals,” Crawford said. “I’m a firm believer that it’s important to be positively engaged and involved whether it’s during or after undergraduate years and this is a great opportunity for me to do my part.”

Brother Crawford is currently serving as the Assistant Director of Greek Life at Vanderbilt University after three years of service to the Office of Greek Life as Coordinator, having worked with all three of the councils IFC, NPHC, and Panhellenic. James was selected as the 2015 Association of Fraternity and Sorority Advisors Gayle Webb New Professional of the Year, an award designated for recognition of an outstanding professional within three years or less in the profession for their exemplary work. He attended The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, earning a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training and The University of South Carolina at Columbia for his Masters in Higher Education and Student Affairs. James currently lives in Nashville, TN with his wife, Lori, and his Corgi, Pancake.
