Beta Theta Pi Receives National Honors

Social fraternity Beta Theta Pi was honored with several awards at the fraternity’s 167th General Convention in July in Toronto, Canada.

The chapter’s accomplishments include winning the Francis H. Sisson Award, Outstanding Recruitment Program Award, Virginia Tech Award (for academics), Excellence in Risk Management Award and Campus Involvement Award.

This is the chapter’s seventh Sisson Award for such accomplishments as hosting an annual highway cleanup and the Beta Theta Spike volleyball tournament. The chapter earned a campus involvement award for outstanding involvement in campus life, student organizations and leadership positions.

On an individual basis, Matt Brawner, a senior biology major from Omaha, Neb., was honored with the Jerry M. Blesch General Secretary’s Leadership Award at an evening celebration held in conjunction with the fraternity’s national convention on June 29.

The Blesch Award recognizes an outstanding chapter leader whose vision, leadership and execution have significantly improved his chapter and its brotherhood. Brawner is a former president of Truman’s chapter of Beta Theta Pi.
