Jim Nabors, Delta Tau Delta, and Meghan Markle, Kappa Kappa Gamma

Jim Nabors, a member of Delta Tau Delta, who would forever be known for his portrayal of Gomer Pyle, died yesterday, November 30, 2017. His website gives this credit to his fraternity:

The son of Mavis and Fred Nabors, Jim was born and raised in Sylacauga, Alabama, where he first began singing in his high school’s glee club and church choir.

A show business career was soon set aside when Jim entered the University of Alabama to major in business administration. He got his first taste of acting at the Jason’s Jamboree, a Greek skit show in which he performed as a member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity.

My previous post announced the engagement of Meghan Markle, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Prince Harry. I did not include this composite photo or Kappa’s announcement. Readers who are Royal followers, might delight in these two items.
