A single comment was instrumental in Kevin Stokes’ success at The University of Findlay: “You will never know how much you can get done until you have to do it.”
While active in the fraternity, Stokes held the positions of alumni relations chair, assistant treasurer, social committee member and marshal, who coordinates new member education and is part of an executive committee to oversee the organization.
His involvement with Theta Chi spurred Stokes’ involvement with Greek life and SGA. “I identified with the fraternity … I wanted to make sure other people could enjoy that, too,” he said. “We wanted to put ourselves out there in a positive light,” which he could accomplish by being a positive representative on campus.
While Stokes was building Theta Chi’s reputation, he also was building his own, making valuable contacts within the University. “I’ve asked most of the faculty for advice several times during my undergraduate experience,” said Stokes. “Most professors are easily accessible and are the bearers of a wealth of useful information in and out of the classroom.”
