Joe Grazioso ’16 worked as an intern this past summer at Belmont Bank whose CEO is Bill McCarty ’79. Joe was referred to Bill by his ATO Mentor John Aymond ’80. The following is an excerpt from a note that Joe’s supervisor at the bank passed on about his experience.
“Joe has a tremendous work ethic, with great attention to detail, and routinely demonstrated a self-starter approach to his day-to-day responsibilities at the Bank.
He is a gentleman, someone who listened closely and took notes whenever a new concept was being presented to him.
The Gamma Zeta chapter of ATO is fortunate to have him as a member and I believe his commitment, dedication, and hard work sets a great example for the qualities that ATO promotes as “America’s Leadership Fraternity”, and will continue to contribute and prove beneficial to the long-term success of the House.”
Great work Joe!!
We’ve got some great guys in the house. If you know of internship opportunities at your companies, please pass them on to Dan Passarella ’13 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jim McGuffin ’96 (email@example.com) who are the alumni overseeing our Mentor and Internship matching programs respectively and they’ll help match up appropriate candidates with the opportunites.
Gamma Zeta ’80s gather for their annual golf retreat. I don’t even know what to say about this picture. This is taken at Turnberry Castle in Scotland. Pictured are Brothers Neil Bresnahan, Mike Sullivan, Jim Cavoto, Cary McMillan, friends Mike Cavoto and Dwight Ekenberg and brothers John Aymond and Dan Touhy.
Mark your calendars! Greg Wright (Gamma Zeta ’68) has a four piece Country Band called Comstock Lode which will be performing at Bub City (435 N. Clark St. Chicago) from 9:00 PM – 12:00 on Monday night October 26th. Check them out on their web site at www.comstocklodecountryband.com. They play lots of current and past country hits and some originals from Greg. Looks like a lot of fun. Please stop in, have a beer and say hello to other Gamma Zetas!
For anyone that knew Greg, it is a must watch.

Throwback Thursday – Now that the Illini have reported to Fall football camp, did you wonder who the first Gamma Zeta Illini football player was?… well you came to the right place – James M. Branch, a 5’11” 178lb end from Seymour, IN. He lettered in 1894, 1895 and 1896. I think that he was Gamma Zeta’s first I Man too. He’s pictured with the 1895 Illini team, second row, third from left.
