Dylan Brown, a member of UT’s chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha, has been named the International Pike of the Month by the Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity.
Brown, a sophomore pursuing a bachelor’s degree in exercise science with a pre-med concentration, was recognized in January for demonstrating Pike ideals, working to improve himself, and having a positive impact on his chapter, campus and the community.“Receiving International Pike of the Month has been one of, if not the greatest accomplishment for me to date,” Brown said. “It is an honor and privilege that my name was even brought up at selections, let alone selected.”
Each year, only 12 Pi Kappa Alpha members are selected to win this award out of 16,000 members from more than 220 chapters.
Brown is the second member from UT’s Epsilon Epsilon chapter to win this honor.
He is active on and off campus. Brown serves as the dancer relations chair for RockeTHON, vice president for recruitment for LiftOff UT, and is an Interfraternity Council delegate. Every week, he also volunteers at a local bowling alley to help teach kids how to bowl, serving as a mentor as well.
For spring break, Brown is traveling to Haiti with a group of 20 students for a mission trip to help the people there.
“This is an experience that I believe I will not be able to put into words,” Brown said. “I believe this missions trip is going to give me a whole new perspective on life.”
