Why did you decide to work for Phi Delta Theta?
“Several years ago, I had the opportunity to meet several young professionals through my work. I was very impressed with these individuals’ character and professionalism. These individuals were much further along than I was at their age. When the opportunity came up to work at Phi Delta Theta, I saw that I had the chance, in some small way, to help form the character and leadership of many young men. Working at Phi Delta Theta these past years has been very rewarding as I have had the opportunity to work for an organization with a mission I truly believe in.”Tom Shumate
