History of the Theta Xi Chapter
Brother Long organized the first
meeting on September 9, 1976 with eleven Brothers in
attendance. On September 23, 1976, applications for a
graduate chapter were submitted to the Tenth District
Representative, Brother Owsley C. Spiller. In the days
to follow, many forms and documents were submitted to
the district office. Shortly thereafter, all approved
documents were received from the district office.
Thus, another hurdle toward starting a graduate
chapter had been cleared. During the second week of
October 1976, Brother Long personally delivered the
documents to Brother Harold J. Cook, National
Executive Secretary, at the Washington D.C. office.
Finally on October 13, 1976, Brother Long received a
phone call from Brother Cook stating that the Theta Xi
Chapter had become a reality. There was still one step
to complete before Theta Xi was official.
5, 1976 in Big Johns Restaurant Banquet Room, the
Tenth District Representative, Brother Spiller,
presented Theta Xi it's Charter.
