This spring, for the first time, TKE Beta-Pi implemented the Triangle Achievement Program. The TAP, a 1986 invention of the TKE Beta-Sigma at the University of Southern California, had been proposed by the alumni many years ago as a good way to meet some sharp freshmen.

Applicants were screened and finalists invited to Atlanta for a day in May of interviews and information. While the incoming freshmen met with teams of Tekes, BOT members David Adcock and Michael Smith talked with parents and other applicants about factors that lead to success in college and about the value added by the Greek system.

After the interviews, participants walked to the Chapter House for a cookout and the announcement of awards.

This year’s awards, totaling $3,000, were sponsored by the BOT/Alumni Association.
