A Wonderful Year for the Tau Chapter
Dear Alumni & Parents' Association,
On behalf of the Tau Chapter, I extend to you our deepest gratitude for your encouragement and support this past year. We are deeply humbled to be brothers in a Chapter that has produced so many outstanding alumni who have made their marks in the fields of medicine, education, the arts, business, law, politics and finance.
Our opportunity earlier this year to see Bill Wittliff '59 honored as National Kappa Sigma Man of the Year was especially meaningful to us. We were fortunate not only to help celebrate Mr. Wittliff's extraordinary accomplishments, but also to witness first hand how Kappa Sig bonds really do hold Tau brothers together throughout their lives.
To the Parents' Association, we appreciate more than words can say the wonderful Parents' Weekend events you organized and hosted last fall and this spring. We also thank you for raising money to make improvements to the Kappa Sig living quarters and to enhance the lodge. Thank you so much for your time and generosity.
As a Chapter, we're very proud that a Tau brother, Nash Horne '10, has been appointed to the UT System Board of Regents to serve as its student representative for the entire University. Nash is well deserving of this appointment and I know he will serve us well as our student voice on this esteemed board.
I'm also proud of the entire Chapter for the academic ranking we achieved this past year within the Interfraternity Council. We garnered an overall GPA of 3.279, placing us second out of 23 fraternities on the UT campus. Tau Pledges earned the Number One ranking among New Members, with a GPA of 3.285.
This was a highly productive and rewarding year for all of us who have the good fortune to be a part of the Tau Chapter. We're forever grateful for your guidance, inspiration and support.

Brax McCarthy Shines in
Bayou City Collegiate Championship
Brax McCarthy '10, a Junior walk-on from Fort Worth who hadn't played competitive golf since his senior year in high school, took the lead on day one at the Bayou City Collegiate Championship and held it for two straight days, outplaying his five team mates, three of whom were defending national champions. McCarthy, son of Thomas McCarthy '73, began day three with a two-stroke lead, but bogeyed his first hole and ultimately tied for sixth place as an individual. Overall, an outstanding performance that helped Texas place first in the championship and earned McCarthy his first top 10 in college golf. The championship was played at Redstone Golf Club in Humble, TX, February 22 - 24.
