The Delta Chi Convention is always important for anyone in the bond of Delta Chi, as it represents the fraternity at large. Yet, the Pittsburg 2012 convention was particularly meaningful for our chapter.
This year, the Missouri chapter was recognized with the Award of Excellence for the Red Division for its successful attempts in advancing the core values of the fraternity.
Every two years, during each Convention, the Delta Chi Award of Excellence is given to a chapter whose actions are “exemplary of the high ideals and standards of the fraternity.” This is the highest recognition a Delta Chi chapter can earn; with the exception of the President’s cup, which can only be attained by previously receiving the Award of Excellence.
Brothers Sean Flanagan and Max Conger were responsible for representing Missouri in this occasion, and brought home the award with great excitement.
When asked about the award, President Sean Flanagan explained there are many reasons behind it, such as improvements in manpower and housing. “However,” Flanagan said, “the fact that we won Mizzou’s Catalyst award and that we keep pushing boundaries within our campus to strive for the values of Delta Chi are among the major factors”.
The award has huge significance as it reflects the successful efforts of our chapter.
Moreover, it is the payoff of the incessant dedication that many of our members and advisors have selflessly put into this chapter, in hopes of creating a better brotherhood for all.
