More than 500 brothers, from undergraduates to alumni, descended upon Lubbock, Texas last month for the brotherhood’s 25th anniversary national convention. The theme of the conference was “Celebrating 25 Years of Growth, Service, and Excellence: Entering the Silver Era” and focused on celebrating the past 25 years of rich history, tradition, and brotherhood.

The convention was held at the Holiday Inn Lubbock Hotel and Towers and the campus of Texas Tech University, home to the Alpha Chapter. Every chapter and colony was represented during this momentous occasion.

National founders Joe Cereceres, Eugene Dominguez, Juan Barraza, and charter line members Jorge Rodriguez, Albert Navarro, and Abel Mendoza were the spotlight of the conference. The founders and charter line hosted an informative panel in which they discussed the inception of the brotherhood and why they saw a need for it at Texas Tech.

For many brothers, this was the highlight of the convention, getting to hear from a primary source about the beginnings of  the fraternity and getting to meet the men who created the organization that all brothers have sworn their lives to and which has given them so much.

“National convention was a great experience and reaffirmed to me why I even pledged in the first place. This brotherhood is so strong that I really am happy about the life decision I made” said Fall 2008 Texas A&M Kingsv
