The Gamma Lambda Chapter was also recognized for being the Alumni Chapter with the most registered brothers. Brother William G. Herbert was recognized for being the oldest registered brother; made at Eta Chapter in 1955, Brother Herbert has over 67 years of service in Alpha. Brother Past General President Mark S.
