Thank you to Larry Cheek '75 for participating in this Q&A.

Why did you join SigEp over other fraternities?
The brothers were "real" and down to earth.

What song(s) best defines your college experience?
I was social chairman a couple of years and all songs on the jukebox were mine, so I would have to say the Sig Ep Jukebox. It truly was the best jukebox in Chapel Hill, bars included.

How did SigEp help make you into the man you are today?
1- mastery of time management 2- social skill development

What is your most memorable moment about being an undergrad member of North Carolina Delta?
Meals prepared by Ernestine followed by Sarge.

Tell us about a brother who was a mentor or went beyond the call of duty to help you.
Too many to name. We all went beyond the call of duty to help each other.

What's the best advice you've ever received, and from whom?
If you don't have something good to say about something/someone, don't say anything at all- My father, June H. Cheek

What's your greatest personal challenge to date and how did you overcome it?
Good question! I guess I am still waiting/looking for it.

What role does leadership play in a man's life?
As far as I am concerned, it's everything: family life - business life

If you were walking onto the UNC campus as a young freshman, what advice would you give to the younger you?
Be involved in everything you can find time for and be sure to find a smart, pretty girlfriend just like I did the first time.

What's new in your life today?
My wife, Cherri, and I became grandparents Dec. 1, 2011 to Tilley-Gray Gweneth Cheek (daughter of my son, Grayson, and his wife, Lindsey).
