Mike Ventura, Indiana State ’67, served as Indiana Delta’s vice president of programming and recruited two of the chapter’s largest new member classes while serving as vice president of recruitment.
Soon after graduating, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps, where he served proudly for seven years. Following his stint in the military, Ventura worked as a sales manager and account executive for major radio stations. He later launched his own firm, specializing in social media and search engine optimization.
When asked to serve as chapter counselor for the Georgia Theta chapter at Emory University, Ventura happily accepted the role. He met weekly with each member of the executive board, worked with the Ritual committee to bring a new solemnity to the Ritual and was instrumental in the chapter being named Greek organization of the year for the first time. He was involved in the Atlanta SigEp network and recruited others to work with Georgia Theta. Ventura was posthumously named Volunteer of the Year at the 2019 Carlson Leadership Academy in recognition of his work with the chapter.
