DKExcellence: The Four Corners Campaign

The Beta Chapter has embarked on a path to honor our past successes and ensure our future. With a dedicated team of alumni, who will serve as the Campaign Committee, and the support of our members, we will be able to ensure that our chapter continues to thrive for centuries.

The Beta DKE Corporation Board has recognized several capital needs, which cannot be funded through our annual operating budget and funds. They include:

  • Increased funding for the Caldwell Fund, which is a renovation, major repair, and replacement fund. Three leaders from the class of 1968 have made a generous offer of $200,000 as a challenge grant, which will match every dollar collected by December 31, 2017, up to $200,000. It's critical that we meet this challenge, as receiving the $200,000 is contingent upon raising $400,000 by December 31, 2017
  • The creation of a fund to support the Academic Excellence Program established in 2012. An initial gift of $30,000 has already been pledged to start this fund.
  • The creation of a fund to provide much-needed benefits to Meg Miller, Beta DKE’s long-time house mother/manager.
  • Funds to carry out a necessary renovation to the dining room and kitchen of the DKE House.

With these needs established, plans are in the works to ensure that we are able to support them with a goal of raising $1,280,000 by December 31, 2017.

For more details, to volunteer for the effort or to make an early pledge, please contact Andy Spencer '80 (acspencer121457@gmail.com or 404-863-1162) or Scott Smith '80 (scottsmith@unc.edu or 919-740-5197).

Class of ’71 to Gather for Reunion in October

The class of ’71 will be having their 45th Reunion during Alumni Weekend from October 7-9, and a total of 19 of our 24 members are planning on attending. Twenty-two of the members went through as pledge brothers and two became Beta DKEs and joined the class the following year. The brothers are looking forward to being in Chapel Hill and at the DKE House for another weekend of good times and wonderful memories.

Beech Watson ’71 Says He Wouldn't Trade DKE Experience for Anything

Beech Watson ’71 Says He Wouldn't Trade DKE Experience for AnythingBeech Watson ’71 is thankful for many aspects of his DKE experience, including the wonderful memories he made and the friends that were by his side during life’s biggest moments. Beech said that he would encourage his own son to join the fraternity because it gives brothers a good identity on campus and they are respected. “The fellowships you have will last a lifetime and your pledge brothers will be just that, brothers,” he said.
