6th Consecutive Peterson Award

At Sigma Chi's Balfour Leadership Training Workshop we were awarded with our 6th consecutive J. Dwight Peterson Significant Chapter Award. This award recognizes our chapter as a chapter of excellence within the General Fraternity. This is a great honor for our members and alumni, as we continue to show our consistency for excellence and success.

In addition to the current brothers, we were honored to be pictured with Ethan Pickering, last years International Balfour Award winner, Tommy Geddings, the newly elected Grand Consul and Rich Hronek, a current Grand Trustee.

A Tribute to Brother Giltinan

dave.png

Dear Sigma Chi Brothers,

DAVE GILTINAN:
Dave and I grew up in Jamestown, NY.  Before my freshman year Dave came to my house to encourage my entrance at CASE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY. Soon after arrival I pleged Sigma Chi fraternity and Dave was my Big Brother.

I decided to major in Physics and had some trouble with Physics 1.  Dave mentored and encouraged me and as a result I was in full gear by Thanksgiving time. We traveled back and forth from Case to Jamestown for the next five years.

Dave majored in EE (59) and attended Grad School in Theoretical Nuclear Physcis, PhD (63). Dave was brilliant in both math and physics.  He often tutored many Sig brothers in EE, Physics and Math.  He also provided guidence for the Chapter througout his graduate career.  Soon after Dave got his PhD degree he had several local teaching jobs in the Cleveland area and eventually got a full time job at Edinboro University in Edinboro, PA (68).  Luckily for me he recruited me for an Astronomy Professer job at Edinboro.  He served at Edinboro for 40 years.  Dave also served as Chairman of the Dept. of Physics, which he founded, for several years.

Dave married Janice Peterson (a Nursing Major at Western Reserve) and I was honored to serve as his Best Man. They had two children Brian and Kevin.  Brian passed away at age 39 after serving in the Navy.  Brian had a B.S. in Nuclear Eningeeing from Penn State.  I remember Dave tutoring his son Brian in EE courses on a frequent basis.

Dave was my best man, in my wedding in 1964.  I am Brian's Godfather, and Dave was the Godfather of my oldest son Michael.

Dave acquired ALS in the early summer of 2015.  He passed away on September 30 at the age of 78.

In spite of acquiring ALS, he retained his sense of humor in his last days.  He told me that he had Lou Gerhig's desease and he was not even a Yankee fan!  He was however a faithful Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Browns fan.

We had a mutal friend Jim McCusker from Jamestown, NY.  Jim was an offensive tackle with the Browns playing with QB Frank Ryan and running back Jim Brown.

Dave and I would be given tickets to Brown's games.  On November 22, 1963 Dave and I picked up tickets from Jim and on the way back to CASE heard that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated.  Indeed we had many memories together.

In hoc,

Jim LoPresto (62).

Beta Eta Chapter Scholarship Award

Scholarship Update:

The Beta Eta chapter earned the highest total brother GPA in Spring 2015 for the third consecutive semester. This earned Sigma Chi the chapter scholarship award from Case Greek Life for the 2014-2015 school year as we had the highest GPA for both semesters. Pictured is the award received at the Fall 2015 Greek Life Scholarship Reception.

Congratulations to Our New Brothers!

This post is a little late but it is our first post to our new blog. We want to congratulate our new brothers and encourage alumni to reach out to them.
