HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 2, 2010 – The Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity from High Point University was recently honored with several awards at the 52nd Supreme Chapter, the group’s biennial national conference. The event was held Aug. 5-9 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
Fraternity members David Rad, chapter president, and Andrew Realon, immediate past president, attended the conference.
During the conference, Rad accepted awards on behalf of the chapter, including Academic Achievement Award, Recruitment Excellence Award, Retention Excellence Award, Legacy Recruitment Award and the Living Ritual Award.
“I am excited for what the future will bring, and the chapter will always be looking for ways to get involved with PUSH America and develop a strong presence on High Point University’s campus,” Rad says.
“These honors at a national conference are continuing proof that our chapter has been moving in the right direction since we were chartered in April 2008,” says Realon. “We worked hard over the past year working for our national philanthropy. We hosted movie nights, a bike-a-thon, empathy dinners and other campaigns to spread information and raise money for disability awareness.”
“All of the brothers represent the vision of our national fraternity ? ‘Pi Kappa Phi will redefine fraternity as a lifelong brotherhood of leaders,'” Rad says. “I have high hopes for what more is in store for our chapter, and I believe we can extend this momentum into the next semester.”
Pi Kappa Phi was chartered on High Point’s campus on April 19, 2008. Since then, the chapter has been awarded the Fraternity of the Year and Highest GPA by High Point University.
