TODAY’S LEADERS – Members of the UT Martin  Alpha Gammo Rho fraternity had a chance to attend the National Leadership Conference recently held in Baltimore, Md. Philip Josephson (from left), National Executive Director of AGR Fraternity is pictured with Martin’s own Chris Fowler, son of Keith and Linda Fowler; Drake Copeland of Martin, son of Randal Copeland and Wendy and Bill Thompson and Doyle Jacklin, President of AGR National Education Foundation.

The Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity at the University of Tennessee at Martin participated in the AGR National Leadership Conference on March 4-5 in Baltimore, Md. 

Andy Zarecor from Yorkville; Alex McDaniel from Union City; Taylor Dill from Lebanon; Brett Rodgers from Cornersville; Jordan McMillan and Austin May from McEwen; Drake Copeland (son of Randal Copeland, Wendy and Bill Thompson) and Chris Fowler (son of Keith and Linda Fowler) from Martin; Tyler Newsom from Collierville; Duncan McKinnie from Bolivar and Jacob McMackins from Buena Vista were chosen as representatives who attended the AGR National Leadership Conference. 

They were accompanied by Marvin Flatt, the advisor. 

“The chapter chooses to send brothers to the leadership conference every year to improve their leadership abilities, exchange ideas with other chapters, and learn lifelong skills,” Flatt said. 

During their time in Baltimore, they brainstormed new ideas, reviewed what they had done in the past, and put together a strong risk management plan for this next year. It also gave them an opportunity to meet other AGRs from across the country.

By attending the national leadership conference, they were able to come back to the chapter better prepared to continue to lead the chapter in the right direction. 

“I’m very encouraged with the leadership that they have shown and I know they will be successful in the upcoming year,” Flatt said.
