UST’s Sigma Chi Fraternity Earns Outstanding Chapter Award St. Thomas Newsroom August 15, 2011 The Iota Tau Chapter of the Sigma Chi fraternity has earned the Peterson Award as an outstanding chapter. This award is given every year at one of the largest fraternal gatherings in the world, the Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, where “Sigs” from across North America gather to network and learn leadership skills. The workshop was held July 28-30 at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The Peterson Award is given to chapters “Recognizing strong performance in all areas of chapter operations … it is the highest honor bestowed upon an undergraduate chapter. Award criteria include scholarship, financial stability, new member retention, campus activities and leadership, campus and community service, chapter development, faculty and alumni relations, publications, active and new member programs.” The Iota Tau Chapter also earned a brick in the “Walk of Hope” at the Huntsman Cancer Foundation for the roughly $4,000 it has donated to the foundation over the past two years. “The active brothers of Iota Tau would like to thank the student body for its support in raising money for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, Campus Life officials for their continued support of our chapter on campus, and the recent alumni leaders of our chapter who led us to such success over the past two years,” commented David Hackworthy, consul of the Iota Tau Chapter.
