My is Nathan Morlock pin #1662, I am your 2019 Noble Ruler for Alpha Gamma Rho Beta Chapter. I am from Bowling Green, Ohio and I am in my second to last semester with a major in Animal Sciences. I was initiated in the spring of 2016. I am very honored and humbled to have the privilege to lead the brothers through the current year.
We have started off the 2019 spring semester as the we have maintained the largest agricultural fraternity on campus with 58 current members. We have started off 2019 with an initiation of 13 new brothers. These are young men who were recruited in the fall on 2018 but needed an Ohio State GPA to join our fraternity. Since the 2018 Beta Chapter Founder’s Day we have initiated 27 new members including the most recent class this spring. We plan to finish out the 2019 spring semester with another strong class. I couldn’t be prouder of the Beta Chapter in the way our members have exhibited a passion for building our fraternal membership by pounding the pavement and bringing in young men who value agriculture and want to be part of an organization that helps build tomorrow’s strong leaders.
In February we will be sending 4 brothers, including myself to one of the leadership seminars Alpha Gamma Rho nationals puts on in Indianapolis, Indiana. We look forward in further developing our leadership skills and gaining more brotherhood bonds with other AGR chapters from around the country.
The highlight of 2018 fall semester was our AGR Holiday Classic cattle show. Each year the Beta Chapter puts on the cattle show to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. We set a goal of raising $10,000 and exceeded that goal by a substantial amount. As one of the biggest philanthropic donations, the Buckeyethon will receive $10,000 to aid those families in need who have a child battling cancer.
I would like to thank my current brothers and alumni in their support of me being able to lead them into the 2019 school year. I feel as though the future of Beta Chapter has never looked better.
