The Teke 08 01 2016 E Edition Page 2

As I fly back to Indianapolis after another outstanding Charles R. Walgreen, Jr. TKE Leadership Academy, the 30th to be exact, I took a few moments to reflect on "Chuck" Walgreen's outstand- ing contribution to the Fraternity. Frater Walgreen was known for many things besides being the only one to attend the 25th, 50th, 75th and 100th anniversary celebrations. He was an outstanding Teke, living our principles and the Fraternity for Life every day. He resigned from the TKE Grand Council to go help his father run the "family business," which at the time was only one store. Now Walgreens at the "corner of healthy and happy" has thousands of locations. Frater Walgreen contributed his time, talent and treasure to create Better Men for a Better World. He personally funded the first TKE Leadership Academy and many other opportunities for our collegiate Fraters. He would be proud of this group of 1,100 men who have attended the Fraternity's premier leadership training opportunity. It is no wonder Academy graduates result in Top TKE Chapters. We've chosen to highlight four outstanding groups. Though the formula for each group was slightly different, each chapter set a goal to be the best on their campus, lived our values and made a big impact in their community. As another school year begins, now is the time to set your goals, strive for excel- lence and be Better Men for a Better World. I'd also like to take a moment to thank my friend, Danny Klopfenstein, on his service to the Fraternity as our primary author of THE TEKE magazine for the last two years. In early June, Danny accepted a position with a fellow Frater. Danny is an outstanding storyteller who captured the essence of the Fraternity. Even after leav- ing the Professional Staff, he was gracious enough to help us through the transition and help complete this issue of THE TEKE. Thank you, Danny, for sharing your talents to tell our Fraternity's story; we will miss you! We are excited to have Corey Krupa (Zeta-Lambda, Bowling Green) join our staff and begin contributing his talents to this and future issues of THE TEKE magazine!
