Northwest’s Phi Sigma Kappa recognized as outstanding chapter

By Alexandra Mortallaro, media relations assistant

Northwest Missouri State University’s Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity chapter recently received the Herbert L. Brown Outstanding Chapter Award. The award is presented to four chapters across the country by Phi Sigma Kappa’s national headquarters.

The Herbert L. Brown Outstanding Chapter Award evaluates all aspects of fraternity life including recruitment, fundraising and diversity among other areas. Northwest’s Phi Sigma Kappa chapter has earned the award 11 times in the last 14 years.

Phi Sigma Kappa Secretary Jeremy Butler said the men of Phi Sigma Kappa at Northwest hold one another to a higher standard, which is exemplified through the excellence award.

“Not only are we one of the few chapters across the country to receive the award as much as we have, but we are the only Division II school in the last couple years to earn it,” Butler said, noting chapters at Indiana University, Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University also received the award this year.

The Northwest chapter was chartered in 1938 as Phi Sigma Epsilon and merged in 1985 to become Phi Sigma Kappa. The chapter’s headquarters is located at 940 College Ave., and its national philanthropy is Special Olympics.

Doug Russell, assistant professor of marketing, serves as the Northwest chapter’s advisor.
