Honor is Everything
It was a year ago this month when we sat down with Curt Menefee at the brand new Fox Sports 1 studios in Los Angeles. Only a few weeks before our meeting, Curt was tapped to offer the opening remarks that would form the identity for Fox’s new 24-hour sports network.
Gracious and welcoming, Curt talked with us about how Love, Honor and Truth have provided the underpinnings to his broadcasting career and how a focus on Honor has elevated his career at every stage.
Honor – i.e. reputation – is everything for a journalist.
Our second feature profile is another testament to this idea. As you’ll read, ESPN columnist Mark Schlabach’s reputation for integrity would yield a scoop that turned out to be the biggest story of the 2010 college football season. His previous investigative work exposed misconduct that would later lead to needed reforms in prep school academies.
We’re pleased to present a follow up story on a brother who was featured in The Delta 20 years ago. The last time we checked in with Tommy Vardell, he was scoring touchdowns for the Stanford Cardinal and on his way to the NFL. Fast forward 20 years and Tommy is a managing partner with Bay Area investment firm Northgate Capital. It’s clear from talking to Tommy that the leadership skills he developed playing football have served him well in his post-gridiron career. Tommy’s approach to leadership and operational excellence provide useful examples for brothers at all career stages – whether a collegiate officer or a rising executive.
Rounding out our feature stories is the tale of two Georgia Tech brothers who may be on the verge of a new revolution in food and nutrition. They’ve been profiled in such publications as The New Yorker, Vice, The Atlantic, and now, The Delta of Sigma Nu. In our interview with Rob and Matt, the brothers from Gamma Alpha Chapter were eager to tell us how Sigma Nu helped them learn the business skills to found their company.
Inside you’ll also find a recap of the 66th Grand Chapter in Nashville complete with award winners and a series of photos capturing the full experience from start to finish.
We hope you enjoy the stories in our latest issue and we invite you to share feedback and ideas for future stories by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in Sigma Nu,
