AMF sends SAE brothers to Leadership Training

September 23, 2014

The brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at FSU would like to give a special thanks to the McDonald family and the Alex McDonald Foundation for sending three lucky brothers on the SAE Leadership Cruise, in which seven total brothers attended for four days. The seven brothers who attended the Leadership School brought back a great deal of information back to Tallahassee and this information will help build on the successes of the chapter. Without the McDonalds or the Alex McDonald Foundation, SAE would not have been able to send a record number of brothers to the Leadership School. Again, a great thanks! Caleb W. Diaz Chapter President
