Brother Bio: Jeremy Thibodeau

In an effort to highlight some interesting projects that current brothers are working on, we will be putting up some posts that allow brothers to share their passions. Below, Jeremy Thibodeau '14 talks a little bit about the feature film that he has been working on for the last year. 

Jeremy framing a shot
Since our sophomore spring, my team and I have been working on "THE UNION", a feature film about a bartender and his experiences dealing with the dysfunctional family whose wedding reception he is working at. Spanning a period of three weeks, the shoot took place primarily on the Dartmouth campus. It was an intense and educational experience, the source of many wonderful memories I'll cherish for years to come.

We are proud to be offering a pre-screening of the film tonight in the Black Family Visual Arts Center. Hopefully, many brothers will be able to attend. If you're interested, take a look at the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kigrb2uLhw0

We are excited to keep you posted as the film nears completion.

IM Softball Champs

This last Sunday, Tri-Kap won the IM softball championship, beating Alpha Chi 11-10 with a walk-off hit in the bottom of the sixth inning. The victory completed a successful three-peat for Tri-Kap, capping a year in which we won Soccer in the Fall and Basketball in the Winter. After a rocky start, Tri-Kap trailed 10-6 going in to the fifth inning. However, the team remained resilient, lead by solid fielding and coaching by Brian White '15.

Down 10-8 in the bottom of the sixth, the situation looked dire with two outs and just a man on first. However, Keaton Renta '16, remaining cool and composed despite the pressure, hit a clutch single, and Charles Cai '16 followed it up with a huge triple to bring home the tying run. On the next pitch, Anthony Zhao '14 hit a line drive over the second baseman to bring Charles home and win the game.


We are excited to bring another IM championship to the house, and hope to continue Tri-Kap's IM dominance in the coming term. Here's a picture of the winning team and the crew that came to heckle and cheer them on.

Relay for Life

On May 10th, the brothers of Kappa Kappa Kappa participated in Dartmouth College's Relay for Life event. Relay for Life is a walking marathon that benefits the American Cancer Society, an organization that is dedicated to helping those suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
Our team was able to raise $3,143.69 in the two weeks leading up to the event, and we were proud to have the second highest total of any team participating and the highest team fundraising total of any fraternity. Above and beyond that, brothers sold grilled cheeses at the event to help provide whatever we could. We were excited to see the energy that these brothers have put in to finding sponsors for this cause, and we were thrilled to see that we could give back in some way.

We wanted to give a special thanks to the alumni that helped donate to our cause. We greatly appreciate the support, and we look forward to continuing the strong tradition we have of helping the community in anyway we can.
