A Third Iota Iota Brother Inducted into the Order of Constantine
Congratulations, Bob Loftin ’79, and Thank You for All You Do for Our Fraternity
Each year, the Order of Constantine recognizes a group of Sigma Chi brothers for their commitment, dedication, and service to the fraternity. Induction into the Order of Constantine is the highest honor that the Sigma Chi Fraternity bestows upon one of its members. The honor of being named an Order of Constantine Sig has been conferred on just over 720 brothers since the Order’s inception in 1948, and Iota Iota Chapter had only two brothers receive this honor: Robert Garrison 1925 in 1961, then James Willis Yeldell III ’86 in 2019.
Bob Loftin ’79 became the third ever Iota Iota inducted at the Grand Chapter held in Toronto, Canada (there are 10 Sigma Chi chapters in Canada). At previous Grand Chapters, he received the Seven Lights Alumni Award and is a member of the International Fraternity’s Lockwood Society and White Cross Trust.
Over the past 30-plus years, Bob has contributed to our fraternity as an alumnus in many roles and at many levels. He serves as chapter advisor for Iota Iota and guides the chapter to a level of excellence reflected by the Peterson Award received by the chapter year after year. This is no small feat, as Iota Iota Chapter has one of the largest chapters in the international fraternity.
Brother Loftin was also elected as the Grand Trustee at the 82nd Grand Chapter and served as Iota Iota House Corporation president and general counsel. In addition, he is also a driving force behind a Sigma Chi colony at The University of Alabama in Birmingham. We are proud of Bob’s service to Sigma Chi and his contributions to the alumni and undergraduate brothers of Iota Iota.
Order of Constantine members Will Yeldell ’86 and Bob Loftin ’79.
