HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 27, 2010 – The High Point University chapter of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity recently won the Grand High Alpha Award at the fraternity’s annual General Assembly and Leadership Seminar.
The award, which is given to up to three chapters nationally, recognizes chapters that have maintained superior levels of operation in academics, campus involvement, recruitment, philanthropy, campus and community relations, communication, and risk management.
Iota Phi, HPU’s chapter of the fraternity, was recognized for their chapter growth, annual Rock-a-thon, and having the highest GPA among other IFC fraternities for the spring 2010 semester. This is the second time that the HPU chapter has won the Grand High Alpha Award, the first time being in 1977.
“This award means a great deal to our chapter,” says Angelo Rizzi, Lambda Chi Alpha president at HPU. “We have been working hard, especially in the past year. Winning this award is a direct result of our ability to live out the seven core values of our fraternity and to continuously recruit great young leaders, while focusing on the effort of fifty-two men toward common goals. The goal now is to continue following our motto “Naught Without Labor” for the next three years and win it again.”
