Mike Sharpe '79



Kappa Sigma Creed

The Star and Crecent

The Star and Crescent shall not be worn by every man, but only by him who is worthy to wear it.

He must be a gentleman, a man of honor and courage, a man of zeal, yet humble, an intelligent man, a man of truth, one who tempers action with wisdom and, above all else, one who walks in the light of God.

Loren Singletary '67 Chosen as Tau Man of the Year

Oil & Gas industry leader Loren Singletary '67 has been named Kappa Sigma Tau Man of the Year, the highest honor awarded by the Texas Kappa Sigma Educational Foundation. Loren has had an exceptional 45-year career, serving for 15 years as the Chief Investor and Industry Relations Officer for National Oilwell Varco (NOV), a leading designer and manufacturer of highly engineered oilfield components. He also served as Board Chairman of the NOV/Schlumberger IntelliServe Joint Venture and on the board of directors of Vanguard Natural Resources.

"Loren is the perfect choice for the Tau Chapter's highest honor," said Bobby Stillwell '56, University of Texas System Regent and 2014 Tau Man of the Year. "He fits right in with other winners like Richard Rainwater and Billy Wittliff," he added. "Whether I need help getting out of a sand trap or contacting an oil patch CEO, I call my great friend, Loren. He gets it done!" 

A devoted Tau Trustee for many years, Loren has served TKSEF in a variety of roles, including President of the Foundation in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Loren currently serves as both an officer of the Corporation (Assistant Vice-President) and as Vice-Chair of the Tau Trustees Committee. His lifetime commitment to Tau through such service has assisted generations of younger brothers. 

"Loren is a professional in the truest sense of the word," said Joe Bailey '73, 2005 Tau Man of the Year. "He exudes confidence, focus, and determination in everything he does. He's a born leader, a proud Tau Kappa Sig who loves his Chapter and brothers, and a friend for life!" 

As a Kappa Sig active, Loren played Longhorn basketball his freshman year and was a star player for the Kappa Sigs in the UT Intramural Sports program, participating in almost every league offered. The Kappa Sigs were among the finest teams in the program and won the University Intramural Track Championship in 1968. 

A 1971 UT graduate, Loren earned a BBA in finance and served in the United States Marine Corps Reserves from 1970-1976.

Pledge brother Roy Markum '67 said he and Loren remained close throughout their professional careers. "Loren always operated at the highest levels of competency and integrity and was highly respected throughout the Petroleum industry," Roy said. "He's a true Kappa Sigma brother who went out of his way to support my efforts within the companies he worked for." 

Loren has been active in many charitable non-profit organizations such as Director and Past President of the Texas Golf Association, former Chairman of The Texas Golf Hall of Fame, Director of the Spirit Golf Association, and served on the Executive Committee of the United States Golf Association. He also currently serves as a Director of the TGA Foundation.

Loren and his wife, Claudia ("Sis"), have been married 43 years and have a son, Victor, who pledged Kappa Sig in 1988. Loren and Sis are enthusiastic golfers and frequently play at the Houston Country Club. 

This year's Tau Trustee Reunion will be held Saturday, November 13, at the Kappa Sigma Lodge, where Loren will be celebrated as Tau Man of the Year. Look for more information on Kappa Sigma Parents' Weekend and the Tau Trustee Reunion coming soon.
