Greg Auteri:


"Iota Tau Wins," said past Grand Sage Joe Palazzolo, and he couldn't be more correct. The brothers of our chapter are more than blessed to continue the legacy the great alumni put in place for us. This would not have been remotely possible without the hard work of each and every individual in our chapter.


I also want to give a special shout-out to our Chapter Advisor Yugi Paul, Province Archon Ian Wolf, and Grand Sage Joe Palazzolo. Without you, three, none of this would have been possible because when we were down, you did not give up on us, and you taught us how to learn from our mistakes and become an absolute powerhouse of a fraternity. Thank you for trusting us to lead a Sigma Pi Chapter.


When you have an amazing platform to help and benefit others, you take it seriously, and that's exactly what we've been doing for the past seven years. The number of lives our chapter has directly affected is overwhelming; everyone should be proud of that.
