Letter from VA Tech Chapter President

We received this email from Chandler Givens, Chapter President of VA Kappa. He asked that we pass it along. We are glad to do it.
...I have received a myriad of emails/calls from brothers all over the country, if you would like to post the e-mail which I have sent to all chapters, I would like them to know that we appreciate it.

Subject: Letter to send to nationals for all chapters to read

Today Virginia Tech experienced an unimaginable tragedy of scale never before seen in the United States.

Over the past 24 hours the VA Kappa chapter has received a vast array of e-mails and phone calls from Sig Ep chapters around the country expressing their concern. I would like to personally thank all of you who have gone out of your way to show your chapters support, it means a lot to us to know that brothers whom we never even met have a sincere concern for their counter-parts miles away in Blacksburg.

We are working closely with nationals and internally to try to help begin to cope with the tragic loss of our fellow students here at Virginia Tech. As of 6:30PM today (4/16) all members of VA Kappa chapter have been accounted for. We are extremely fortunate that none have been directly afflicted, however; the scope of the damage done today is far-reaching, and it will be a long while before things return to normal.

We hope to come together as a brotherhood and begin to heal and move forward in a positive direction. Updates may be found on our website:http://www.SigEpVT.org. The hearts and prayers of the VA Kappa chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon go out to all who were affected today by these senseless acts of violence.

Thank you again for all of your support,

Chandler Givens
