NWU Fraternity, Sorority Receive National Recognition
Two chapters in Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Greek community have received national recognition.
The Upsilon Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity has been awarded the Roland Maxwell Outstanding Chapter Award. The honor is bestowed on one chapter from more than 100 Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity chapters across the country. The award recognizes Nebraska Wesleyan’s chapter as the most outstanding in the country. The chapter was celebrated during the fraternity’s national convention in July for its success in learning, leading and serving.
The honor marked the sixth time the Upsilon Chapter was recognized with this national award.
At the Phi Kappa Tau national convention, Melinda Dilley, assistant director of student involvement, was recognized with the “Outstanding Greek Advisor” Award. Dilley has been at Nebraska Wesleyan for a year and advises the university’s six sororities and fraternities.
Delta Zeta Sorority was recognized as an honoree at the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s 15th Annual “So the World May Hear” Awards Gala, held July 26 in Saint Paul, Minn. The gala celebrated the spirit of giving by honoring individuals and organizations who dedicate their time and service to helping others.
In 2006, Delta Zeta’s national convention voted to make Starkey Hearing Foundation a philanthropic partner with Delta Zeta for the cause of speech and hearing. Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Delta Zeta chapter hosts several fundraisers each year to support the cause.
