Sigma Beta Chapter

Ω Page

 


 

The Omega Page is dedicated to Armando "Mando" Pena and Guillermo "Memo" Wolf.  They helped found the Sigma Beta Chapter in 1997 and died in a car accident on February 8, 1998.  Without them there would not be a Sigma Lambda Beta at Texas State.  The fraternity continues to strive to live by the standards that Memo and Mando lived.  In honor of their memory we have established The Memo and Mando Scholarship Fund.  We intend to give two scholarships to two High School Seniors who plan to attend Texas State.  They must also exemplify the characteristics that Memo and Mando embodied.  A tradition we started in the Fall of 2003 was our Dia de Los Muertos display.  We create an altar and set it up in the quad in memory of Memo and Mando by doing this we are honoring the memory of our brothers while informing students about Dia De Los Muertos.  Through our efforts we intend to have their legacies preserved not only within our fraternity but at Texas State as a whole.

Armando I. Pena, Jr. was born in San Antonio, TX to Armando Ignacio Pena Sr. and Irene Rodriguez Pena. He attended Southwest High School and graduated in 1992, staying on the honor roll all four years. After high school he attended both San Antonio College and Palo Alto College. In the fall of 1997, he enrolled at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. While at SWT, he majored in microbiology with a minor in chemistry. Mando, as his friends at SWT knew him, wanted to work in commercial microbiology. He was considering attending medical school after graduation. His biggest accomplishment at SWT came when he helped start "Hermanos Unidos," an interest group of Sigma Lambda Beta, Inc. His pride and dedication helped in the foundation of the Sigma Lambda Beta Colony of SWT. Perhaps his biggest accomplishment was his "pride and joy," his son Armando Ignacio Pena III. While a full-time student, Mando was also a full-time father to his five year-old son. Mando was proud of the fact that he had enrolled his little boy at St. Joseph's Catholic School in San Antonio. Mando will forever be remembered as a jokester, a friend, a gentleman, and above all a loving father
