Original Northwestern State Brothers Reunite

Northwestern State alumni of Gamma Psi from the 1960s gathered to have a good time at a barbecue last month in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Current officers and roses joined alumni and former roses, who came from as far away as Idaho, Indiana, Georgia and New York City, and the group was given an update on happenings at NSU by current President and former Gamma Psi Number I Chris Maggio ‘83.

The chapter was established on March 15, 1963, and it was fitting that five members of the chapter’s first pledge class in fall 1963 – Denman Shaffer, Thom Williams, Bill Maher, Jimmie Brossette and Edd Bomar – were in attendance at the event to chow down with several dozen other folks and discuss old times as well as what’s happening today at NSU.
