Fraternities Receive Local and National Recognition

Truman State University social fraternities Delta Chi and Sigma Tau Gamma were honored recently with national and campus awards, respectively.

At its national convention held this past summer in Cleveland, Ohio, Delta Chi received five national awards: The Official Certificate of Chapter Achievement, Most Outstanding Campus Leadership, Most Outstanding Ritual, Most Outstanding Web site and Most Outstanding Recruitment.

According to Ray Galbreth, executive director of Delta Chi, the Truman chapter of Delta Chi is worthy of all of the recognition it has received.

“With so many positive things being done by Delta Chi chapters and by other fraternities across North America, it is great to see some of these men [the Truman chapter] getting the public acknowledgement they deserve,” Galbreth said. “We hope to see them continue to be a positive influence on the Truman campus.”

Sigma Tau Gamma, Truman’s oldest social fraternity, having been established in 1921, was the recipient of the 2005-2006 Interfraternity Council (IFC) Most Improved Chapter award. The IFC honors only one fraternity on campus with this award every year.

Sigma Tau Gamma received this award due to the strides the chapter made in new membership recruitment, finance, academics and social functions.
