Kappa Sigma Awards 1HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 12, 2013 – High Point University’s Rho-Eta Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity was recently honored with national awards at the national Kappa Sigma Fraternity’s 69th Biennial Grand Conclave, in Las Vegas.

The Rho-Eta Chapter received “The Silver Bowl” for academic excellence, the “Champion Chapter” award, which designates Kappa Sigma as the largest fraternity on HPU’s campus, and awards for being a 100 percent ritually proficient chapter, and for being one of the top five most improved chapters for ritual proficiency. Lastly, Rho-Eta was named the Ritual Proficiency leader for all of Northern North Carolina.

Three individual brothers were also recognized, nationally, for their Kappa Sigma Awards 2accomplishments. Matt Jakubowski was awarded “Outstanding GM (Grand Master) of the Year,” John Marsicano was awarded “Master of Recruitment” and HPU alumnus, Brandon Rivera, was awarded “Outstanding Alumnus Advisor of the Year.”

“I, along with the rest of the chapter, have worked very hard to ensure we excel inside the classroom and in the community, and although we are humbled by such incredible national recognition for the Rho-Eta chapter and for High Point University, this is only the beginning of what’s to come,” says Jakubowski.

Marsicano credits High Point University for his award, by adding, “HPU’s Office of Greek Life does an incredible job of preparing us for recruitment, and none of this would be possible without their constant support and encouragement.”
