For the fourth year in a row, Southeastern Louisiana University’s Epsilon Phi Chapter of Delta Tau Delta has received the Hugh Shields Flag, a designation given to the top 10 chapters in the national fraternity.
The award is based on overall performance and programming in the areas of academics, finances, recruitment, membership education, operations, campus leadership, service and alumni relations.
Tyler Rogers, chapter president, said Epsilon Phi was also recognized for its participation in Adopt-a-School, the national philanthropy of the fraternity.
“The 2011 year was a great one for Epsilon Phi Chapter,” Rogers said. “Among our accomplishments, the biggest was winning our fourth straight Hugh Shields Flag for chapter excellence and our 14th overall. We are very proud of all that we accomplished last year, and we have set new goals for the coming year to achieve even greater success in 2012.”
In addition to its Adopt-A-School project work with Natalbany Elementary, the chapter participated in a number of other community service activities, including the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, Adopt-a-Street, and Habitat for Humanity. The chapter also performed campus service work at the SLU Laboratory School and at Chefs Evening, the university’s annual fund raising event.
In the area of academics, the chapter’s cumulative 2.837 GPA placed the members first among SLU fraternities.
Members of Epsilon Phi Chapter of Delta Tau Delta from Livingston and Tangipahoa parishes are David Foster, Jayse Morgan and Logan Torrance, Albany and Jeremy Troulliet and Jacob Williams, Ponchatoula.
New members are Blake Matherne, Hammond; Cory Prevost, Loranger; Kaleb Muse, Ponchatoula; and Ross Tomko, Walker.
