The SHSU chaper of Delta Tau Delta was recently named the “Most Improved Chapter” at the fraternity’s divisional conference in St. Louis, Mo.
“Given that this was a joint Western Plains/Northern Division conference, Delt chapters from almost half the entire fraternity witnessed the representatives from our beloved alma mater be recognized for their valiant efforts to become the chapter we all want them to be,” said alumnus and former president Bob Roush.
Among the four other awards the chapter received, fraternity member Damien DuFour was named the recipient for the scholarship award from the National Fraternity, beating out “over 75 worthy applicants from many of the top academic institutions in the country,” according to Roush.
“This Sam Houston student was accorded the status of being the top scholar in all of Delta Tau Delta’s 120 chapters in which over 6,000 undergraduates hold membership,” he said.
“SHSU values its Greek letter organizations and the positive contributions they make in getting students actively involved and making positive contributions on campus,” said John Yarabeck, interim Dean of Students.
