  • “I give back to ZBT because I want to support the organization that supported me not only through college but beyond graduation. Having the support of your brothers, a family, who hold each other accountable to the values and Credo of our organization and act as a support base that pushes you to be the best version of yourself is something that has been an invaluable part of my life. I will always support ZBT in hopes for any potential Zeeb to have that experience as well.”
