Donor Spotlight: Frank Resides '62

FaceBook  Twitter

We want to take this time to say THANK YOU to Frank Resides '62 for his continued support of Morrill Chapter of Alpha Zeta over the years. We recently caught up with Frank and asked him about where life has taken him, Alpha Zeta memories, and what Morrill Chapter means to him today. Here’s what he had to say.  

Why have you remained so dedicated to Alpha Zeta?

I have remained dedicated to Alpha Zeta because of the life-long friendships I made while living in the house and with other members of the Brotherhood that I met after graduation. Having served in the USMC 1954-57 and as House Manager in 1960 and Chancellor in 61-62, I was able to develop some leadership and human resource skills that served me well during my 40+ year career with the US Dept of Agriculture. As a Water Resources Planning Specialist, I held several technical and supervisory positions, retiring from the National Headquarters in Washington, DC on December 3rd 1997. A memory I have from my Senior year: Several of us attended the Tri-Chapter meeting at Cornell where Governor Nelson Rockefeller was initiated as an Honorary member. He and a couple "associates" arrived in the afternoon and stayed well into the evening. As luck would have it, I was seated next to him at dinner. We had an interesting and enjoyable conservation. The trip was a pleasant experience for all of us.

How has being in Alpha Zeta changed your life? 

Alpha Zeta has changed my life in many ways, I look forward to receiving our Class of '62 News Letter every year, in October, published by Brother Dick Criley; and the Fall AZ Reunion at Yoders in New Holland. I have made and received occasional visits from and to Brothers here in PA and from other states.
