Jimbo Laboon and family
After 30 plus years of alumni leadership, serving as Chapter Advisor and currently as House Corporation Treasurer, Jimbo LaBoon, III was honored for his tireless service to Georgia Beta through the installation of a bronze plaque in the Dining Room. In 1981, freshman Jimbo heeded his father’s advice: “you can pledge anywhere you like, but if you want your bill paid for, you’ll pledge SAE.” Jimbo’s contributions to our Chapter have had no limits. Jimbo refers to his work with Georgia Beta as “a labor of love.” The hardest part of this surprise was that Jimbo is the treasurer; therefore, we had to negotiate with the plaque manufacturer to let us pay late, as we could not ask Jimbo for a check! After they heard the story, they were all in. On hand to help with the surprise was his wife Denise, daughters Caroline and Emily, as well as his mom and dad, Glenda and Jimbo (GA Beta ’58).
