HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 20, 2010 – Jason Parr, a senior at High Point University and member of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, has recently been nominated to serve on the Student Advisory Committee, a national committee run by the fraternity.
Parr, who will serve on the committee until summer 2011, says being a part of the SAC is a high honor for not only himself but his chapter and High Point University.
“I was nominated by our chapter alumni adviser and HPU alumnus Todd Shoemaker,” explains Parr. “I am one of only 12 men who have the privilege to serve on this committee. Each of us represents a different region. To get the chance to represent the undergraduate brothers from chapters throughout Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina is really an amazing opportunity.”
Parr says serving in such a capacity for his fraternity on such a national level and to be one of a few is something for which he’s particularly proud.
