As a college senior, Michael Lockwood, Ohio State ’66, proudly served as president of SigEp’s Ohio Gamma chapter, and his leadership helped the chapter earn its first Buchanan Cup.
He continued to serve the chapter as a volunteer after graduation, and in the 1990s, began to contact alumni and invite them to events that he organized. This became a passion for Lockwood, and after the chapter’s Alumni and Volunteer Corporation was formed, he took on the role officially, serving as vice president of alumni relations. Ohio Gamma’s centennial celebration and its annual golf tournament, homecoming activities and senior dinner are just some of the many events he planned. It is thanks to his tireless efforts that many brothers across the decades have maintained a strong connection to each other, their chapter and SigEp.
At the 2009 Carlson Leadership Academy, he was recognized for his contributions to Ohio Gamma with the Volunteer of the Year Award. Lockwood held a degree in industrial engineering and enjoyed a successful career in various management positions with AT&T before his retirement.
