The Pi Kappa Phi Beta Iota Chapter at The University of Toledo is one of 16 chapters nationwide to receive the fraternity’s Master Champion Chapter Award.
The UT chapter of the fraternity averaged a tier three, the highest possible score, on the seven-objectives report grading system the national fraternity uses to assess its 180 chapters across the country.
“It’s truly an honor for us. We’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing, and to be recognized for going above and beyond is a privilege,” said Victor Petzall, president of the UT chapter, who is a senior studying professional sales and marketing.
Ian Davis, a UT senior studying communication and a fraternity member, said it was a group effort that made the recognition possible: “I think we were able to obtain this honor because of great leadership on our executive board, and the buy-in from the fraternity as a whole contributed to winning this award.”
The Toledo Pi Kapps are not done yet. Fraternity members have set their sights on the Fogarty Award, given to the highest performing chapter in the nation.
“The Toledo Pi Kapps succeeded in capturing the best of the best,” said Mark A. Urrutia, the greater Ohio regional governor of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. “This is an honor they deserve, and we are all very proud of their dedication to making their chapter, and brothers, strive for the best.”
