Alum wins induction into the Sigma Alpha Epsilon "Hall of Fame"

Gary Cowger '70, president of General Motors North America, member of Kettering's Board of Trustees and a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, won induction into the 2004 Sigma Alpha Epsilon Hall of Fame. During his acceptance speech, Cowger spoke highly of his days at Kettering/GMI and what his involvement in the fraternity meant to him. This recognition represents how the Sigma Alpha Epsilon philosophy empowers the making of tomorrow's world leaders.

In addition, three brothers of the fraternity attended a four-day National Leadership School in St. Charles, Ill., with more than 375 college student leaders from across the country. Kettering attendees included Dave Quintanilla of Union, N.J., Jeff Beyelien of Frankenmuth, Mich., and Chad Montville of Lake Orion, Mich. For 69 years, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity has been hosting this event annually to train their membership through classes and seminars. This leadership experience also allows for networking opportunities, a chance to learn best practices from others, etiquette, faith and spirituality, and a visit to the Levere Memorial Temple.
