National Chancellor, James Smith, Alpha Eta (Samford), and Mr. Pi Kappa Phi and former National Council member, Jim Krucher, Beta Alpha (NJIT), served as installation officers for the Fraternity’s chartering of our newest chapter at the University of Connecticut. The Iota Lambda (Quinnipiac) and Theta Mu (UMass-Amherst) chapters initiated the new founding members into the Pi Kappa Phi brotherhood. It was a memorable experience for all involved.
Director of Chapter Operations, C. Brad Middleton, Beta Eta (Florida State), Director of Chapter Volunteers, Beau Samples, Eta Upsilon (Miami University), and Leadership Consultant, Josiah Mihok, Delta Beta (North Georgia) represented the national fraternity and facilitated events over the weekend.
The chapter hosted their banquet at the Nathan Hale Inn. Brother Smith challenged the chapter to live the values of the student creed, especially lifelong commitment, in his keynote address and presented the chapter with their new Charter. Turner Stuart, Beta Phi (East Carolina), who has served diligently as the chapter’s advisor, was also in attendance.
The Connecticut Fraternity & Sorority Life community and Pi Kappa Phi National Headquarters are both very proud of the new founding father of the Kappa Omicron chapter and look forward to all that they will accomplish.
