1982 at the Fiji House 2010 with Wife Lucinda
It is with great pleasure I nominate Randy Wilmore for the Theta Tau Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta’s 2010 Distinguished Fiji Award. Over the years, Randy’s work for the Chapter and for his community has been exemplary, always setting the standard for others. His civic, political and fraternal activities have been a major focus of his life’s work. He’s never too busy to take on a just cause.
As a founding member, Randy’s leadership and simple presence helped to shape the foundation of the Theta Tau Chapter. Randy’s popularity helped build the Chapter as a driving social and leadership force on campus. Randy’s stature among students, faculty and administrators helped build a positive reputation and image for Phi Gamma Delta as it established itself at TTU.
In those 31 years since the founding of Delta Theta Chi (the local fraternity that became Theta Tau) Randy has continued to be a support and a force for the chapter. His guidance and leadership in various roles through the years have always brought an objective and reasoned decision to help the Chapter through tough situations. Whatever is asked of him, he gladly does. His involvement with the Tennessee Tech Alumni Association has also given Randy plenty of opportunities to continue to promote the successes of the Chapter to other TTU alums throughout the country. When Randy serves on a board or hosts an event, he makes certain that everyone around is aware he’s a Phi Gam Graduate Brother — and that he’s very proud of it.
I’ve attached a bio listing Randy’s numerous accomplishments and involvements. I think the information speaks for itself. I also want to mention Randy’s involvement in the “NFL Yes” campaign to build a stadium to bring the then-Houston Oilers to Nashville. He worked tirelessly to support a cause that has heightened the prestige of the city and the state.
I ask that you give serious consideration to awarding the 2010 Distinquished Fiji Award to Randy. His contribution as a founder, his continued commitment to the Chapter and his vast-work of community involvement are deserving of such recognition.
