The 2013 Sweetheart, Hanna Ahmad, gets serenaded by the Beta-Pi Chapter

On the weekend of March 8-10, the Beta-Pi chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon held their annual Red Carnation Ball on the streets of New Orleans. During the formal dinner, Hanna Ahmad was crowned as Beta-Pi TKE sweetheart for 2013. Ahmad, a second-year Business Administration student from Dunwoody, Georgia, was awarded flowers and a generous applause from the chapter, as well as the traditional sweetheart song and, of course, “My Girl” by the Temptations. From all current chapter members and TKE Beta-Pi alumni, we would like to congratulate Ms. Hanna Ahmad for becoming the 2013 TKE Sweetheart!

On Friday, January 25th, HBGJ performed at Center Stage Vinyl in Atlanta.  A former cover band consisting of Beta-Pi TKEs Michael Zerkus (vocals), Noah Ta (guitar and backup vocals), Michael Duley (guitar), Chris Mast (bass), and Sam Elia (drums), HBGJ played a variety of music, including several new song written by the band, as an opening act for Arc and Stones.  Hundreds of brothers and fans came out to support the band as they shredded through their new set list with high energy vocals and killer solos.  HBGJ posted on their website after the show:

“A huge thank you to everyone who came out and supported us Friday. It means the world to us.”

 

Although their next show is yet to be decided, the band members are eager to get back into the studio to create more original songs.  For more information regarding HBGJ, check their website at http://www.facebook.com/hbgjshreds.  Also, if you missed the show, be sure to check the photo gallery for pictures.  Congratulations HBGJ, and we look forward to bigger things in the future!

During the weekend of March 2-4, Tau Kappa Epsilon had its Red Carnation Formal in New Orleans, where we initiated our new sweetheart. The sweetheart for the next year for the Beta-Pi chapter of TKE is Rachael Winslow, a  member of the Iota Theta chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha. For the third year in a row our sweetheart will be coming from this prestigious sorority on campus. All of the brothers of TKE would like to officially welcome her to our family and say that we cannot wait to spend the next year with her.

TKE Brothers shaving their heads for St. Baldricks

This year, the Georgia Tech chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon is participating in a nationwide philanthropy event sponsored by St. Baldrick’s Foundation for childhood cancer research. St. Baldrick’s funds more childhood cancer research grants than any other organization, second only to the government. Last year, the Beta Pi chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon at Georgia Tech participated in this event and raised $15,845.

At this event, volunteers have their heads shaved to show support for kids who usually lose their hair due to cancer treatments, and each “shavee” receives donations to support their dedication. This year, Tau Kappa Epsilon is looking to be the top team at our event and raise over $18,000!
