Darren Wolf

Darren Wolf was initiated into the Gamma Xi Chapter of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma in the Fall of 1985.  He was an active member of the Fraternity the entire time he was in college.  Aside from being a great role model and exemplifying the ideals of Brotherhood Darren served his chapter in a number of leadership roles including being the Sergeant at Arms, Community Service Chairman and as Vice-President of the Chapter.  Darren continued his service to the Chapter long after graduating from ECU.  Darren served on the Gamma Xi Board of Governors for six years.  Brother Wolf served on the Board of Governors in 1995 when the Outstanding Board of Governors Award was presented to the Gamma Xi Chapter.  Brother Wolf also served a term as the Graduate Council President.  Darren has maintained close contact with the Chapter over the years.  He has regularly contributed financially to help with Chapter hardships and initiated and led the alumni effort to replace furniture and electronics when the Chapter was in dire need of assistance in 2014 and also was appointed to serve on the Lounge Renovation Committee by the Resident Council in 2017 and was instrumental in raising funds for that project.  However; Darren would undoubtedly say that his best, most beneficial contribution to the chapter is his DNA in the form of his oldest child.  Matthew Gunnar Wolf was initiated into the Gamma Xi Chapter of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity in 2011.  Additionally, Darren regularly attends the annual Founders’ Day celebration.  Brother Wolf was involved in the founding of, and serves as Vice-President of the first and only Phi Kappa Tau Alumni Club in the state of Oklahoma.  He was also instrumental in helping to get the coins minted for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Brother Wolf has demonstrated leadership in all areas of his life.  Aside from the remarkable service to his Chapter as chronicled above, Brother Wolf has served his country and his community in leadership capacities.  He graduated from East Central University in 1991 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration.  Seven days after he graduated Brother Wolf was called up by the Oklahoma National Guard to serve in Operation Desert Storm.  He was a Sergeant in the Military Police and was deployed to Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Kuwait.  He was awarded the Oversees Service Ribbon, Kuwaiti Liberation Medal, Southwest Asia Service Ribbon and the Army Achievement Medal for Uniformed Service.  Once he returned home from the war he saw a need in his community.  Methamphetamine use was rampant and debilitated whole sections of his hometown.  Brother Wolf decided to do something about it.  He attended the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training course for Reserve Peace Officers.  Once certified he served on a search and interdiction team that, coupled with legislation, helped to curtail the scourge of methamphetamine production and use in Pittsburg County, Oklahoma.

 

Brother Wolf presently works at the United States Army Ammunition Plant in McAlester, Oklahoma.  He serves in a leadership role at work too.  He is the Facilities Improvement Coordinator.  He received the Achievement Medal for Civilian Service for leading the planning team through an unprecedented period of workload due to the Global War on Terror.
