CEO Corner esigning and constructing an operable, distinguishable building is truly an art. The roles of many individuals, from many different backgrounds, must come together under a common theme to effectively produce the final structure. Similarly, the founders of Pi Kappa Phi forged a model from which our Fraternity would be based and continue to grow. In this issue of the Star & Lamp, we take a look at the theme of building a Fraternity. But first, do you notice anything different? Part of a successful structure is its ability to change. Here at the Star & Lamp, we decided to make a few changes, introduce some new items and make other information more readable. As with any large endeavor, it is a work in progress, so you may see some additional changes in the upcoming issues. But for now, let me give you a quick tour of what we've done. On the cover appears an original piece by Fernando Mico (George Mason- Zeta Epsilon). The introduction of original artwork began in the Spring 1998 issue and will be an occasional addition to the magazine-showcasing some of our talented alumni in the visual arts industry. There is only one design rule given to our cover artists-there are no rules. The point of the cover is to capture the different styles of the artist, while conveying the point of the issue. One note: keep your eye out for the Star Shield in the design-some covers it may be completely visible, others might need a little bit more work to find. Following my space here will be a new page, simply labeled Page One. Interfraternal news will mainly grace this space, as well as quick notes on your National Fraternity.


The Notebook will proceed an expanded contents section. This section will contain more in-depth information on the National Fraternity, including the Foundation, Push America and Journey Project pages. In this issue, you will also find some interesting text and numbers on the current State of the Fraternity. The undergraduate and alumni news has also been improved. In Collegiate, the department will open with a feature on one of our chapters, followed by other chapter news. In a similar fashion, Lifelong will begin with a featured alumnus or alumni group, followed by news and notes. As the name reflects, the Scroll will continue to list important names, addresses and phone numbers for the National Fraternity. Following this page will be a prospective member form. I encourage you to copy this form and keep a couple on hand to mail, fax or email it into the office. This will help communication between the Fraternity and its alumni, and will allow alumni to more actively participate in the RUSH process. As a throwback to a similar department in the past issues of the Star & Lamp, we are excited to bring back a history page in the Capsule. This page will feature stories that reflect the people, places, things and ideas it took to build Pi Kappa Phi into what it is today. And what structure could sustain stability without a focus? Similarly, the Focus portions of the magazine will tie the theme together with relatable stories and features. In this issue, we showcase some of the structural icons that bear the names of Pi Kappa Phis. Also, we wrap up a wildly successful Supreme Chapter and showcase some of the award winners. As always, enjoy this issue of the Star & Lamp! Fraternally yours,

the Supreme Chapter

The 1997-98 year was one of transition for the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity as we said farewell to our long-time home and faced the challenges of moving into a new Headquarters building.

session with National

Historian John Andrews (Truman State Delta Delta)



New National Headquarters and Technology Upgrade The National Headquarters and surrounding acreage was sold in February, 1998, by the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation with the net proceeds from the sale remaining to support educational programs and their other needs. As a result, Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity has entered into a six-year lease on a 9,600-square foot office building in South Charlotte, which doubled our existing space while at the same time driving our effective cost per square foot

Recruitment Statistics In 1997-98, recruitment efforts in the interfraternity world declined by approximately 3 percent. Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity avoided this decline, showing a modest 1 percent increase in both pre-initiations and initiations. More importantly, Pi Kappa Phi ranked very favorably in comparison to our interfratemal peers. We continue to rank in the top 10 in most of the pertinent statistics including fifth in average number of pre-initiates and sixth in average number of initiates. In addition, our average chapter size increased from 45 to 47 men this past year. A significant milestone took place when the Alpha Epsilon Chapter at the University of Florida initiated its 2,000th member. They

are the first chapter to reach this number of initiates. Recruitment is the lifeblood of the Fraternity and our staff and volunteers constantly remain vigilant in finding new ways to assist our chapters in recruiting and retaining new members. Expansion

Pi Kappa Phi continued its aggressive plan to expand its number of chapters through colonization on new campuses as well as reactivating previously dormant chapters. This past year Pi Kappa Phi chartered chapters at the University of Southern California (Delta Rho), Stetson University (Chi), Texas Christian University (Eta Chi) and University of Maryland-Baltimore County (Eta Phi) . In addition, Pi Kappa Phi returned to Texas Tech University (Epsilon Omega) and Jacksonville State University (Delta Epsilon), while opening colonies for the first time at the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Central Florida. Pi Kappa Phi has received invitations to future colonize Marquette University, University of Houston and State University of West Georgia, as well as being a finalist for expansion at several other major universities. Our expansion and colonization success is certainly epitomized by our newly chartered chapter at Texas Christian University. This chapter has been ranked for two semesters in a row as the number one Greek organization in grades, with a chapter average over a 3.1 GPA. When the rankings were announced, the vice president for student affairs at Texas Christian University stated that in his over 20 years at TCU, he could never remember a fraternity being ranked ahead of the sororities for the number one grade ranking. Unfortunately, one chapter was closed for failing to m eet the Fraternity's standards. This was Gamma Omega Chapter at the University of Montevallo .

St. Louis, Mo.; Baltimore, Md.; or San Jose, Calif. Pi Kappa Phi remains committed to providing the highest quality of educational support and guidance to our members.



As the alcohol and "right to party" culture continues to dominate the college campus, Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity continues to emphasize educational programs which will assist our students in making responsible decisions regarding the use of alcohol. Several national fraternities have announced the requirement of alcohol-free chapter houses to deal with these concerns. The Fraternity has extensively studied this matter, with significant dialogue taking place with the students at both the Mid-Year Leadership Conferences and Supreme Chapter. The 46th Supreme Chapter unanimously rejected the requirement of alcohol-free chapter houses but recognized the importance of holding our members accountable for their behavior if they should misuse alcohol. Pi Kappa Phi will be participating in an upcoming Alcohol Summit sponsored by the National InterFraternity Conference, as fraternities and the college campuses continue to explore ways to deal with this very difficult problem . Lastly, I would be remiss not to recognize our outgoing National President, Nathan Hightower (Alabama- Omicron), who completed 13 years of service on the National Council - an impressive feat. Brother Hightower has seen dramatic change and growth in the Fraternity during his tenure, and his leadership will be missed. For as Founder L. Harry Mixson said, "It is to those men who came after us and are continuing to come in an unbroken stream that we owe our wonderful Pi Kappa Phi." Likewise, it is men like Nathan Hightower, as well as the men that will come after him that will continue Pi Kappa Phi on its path to becoming America's leading Fraternity as we approach our centennial in 2004. So much has been accomplished. Much is still left to be done.

he estate of the late Robert L Bennett Sr. (Mercer -Alpha Alpha) made history last April with the largest single donation to the Foundation. That amount was $2 million--60 percent of Bennett's estate--setup in a charitable remainder trust to the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation upon the passing of Bennett's family. Bennett served on the National Council from 1968-1975 as national councilor and was awarded the Mr. Pi Kappa Phi award in 1978. This gift almost doubles the Foundations' total assets.

A Journey of Hope behind the scenes t the Journey of Hope celebration in Washington, D.C., an emotional Bruce Rogers told the assembled crowd that his solo cross-country ride was simply the spark for something far greater. He mentioned names like Jim Karlovec, Ken Kaiser, Sally Schafer McArdle, John Pierce, and recognized the members of the '88 team as the "true founders" of the Journey of Hope. Like 90 Broad Street and the

of Delta Sigma chapter. Karlovec was an avid cyclist and had long dreamed of bicycling across the country. As assistant executive director for Push America, Kaiser was inspired by Bruce Rogers' Push Across America and was looking for a similar national summertime event for undergraduates. Karlovec and Kaiser agreed that an organized ride for Push America was the ideal way to meet both of these goals. For the first two years, the Journey of Hope was headquartered in Karlovec's house. He coordinated the majority of the logistics, and Kaiser assisted with recruitment and promotion during his chapter visitations. Working out of his home with limited resources forced Karlovec to be very creative. He found the administrative duties challenging and easily put in 40 hours a week while balancing school. The Inaugural Journey of Hope Team poses for a photo Karlovec also had to with their banner. train for the Journey of College of Charleston is to Pi Kappa Hope; he is the only Project Manager to have lead the team from the seat of a Phi, 128 South College Street and Bowling Green State University was the bicycle. birthplace of the Journey of Hope. It Another major challenge was deterwas here that Push America's newest mining the route. Initial kick-off locastaff member, Kaiser, visited with tions included San Diego, Calif.; San Karlovec, a junior at BGSU and member Francisco, Calif.; and Seattle, Wa. San 8


Diego was chosen because of weather and Pi Kappa Phi's strong presence in the southern states. Although the starting point has since moved north to San Francisco, the southern route now retraces the '88 route from Phoenix, Ariz., to Washington, D.C. Working with a limited budget, Karlovec and Kaiser met in San Diego over Karlovec's spring break and scouted the route by car. They talked a lot during their drive and both agreed that additional support was needed. Karlovec had already received assistance from McArdle, a junior at Bowling Green and member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. She was studying journalism/public relations, and was very interested in the challenge of the Journey of Hope. McArdle adopted the trek as a class project and volunteered much of her spring writing press releases for the event. Karlovec and Kaiser called McArdle from the road and offered her the position of team Public Relations Coordinator. She accepted and is still the only woman to have completed the Journey of Hope. Kaiser also brought on Pierce, a sophomore from Florida State University, as Logistics Coordinator. Pierce had applied for a summer internship with Push America. 'They gave me the option of working at the Push America headquarters in Morganton, N.C., or traveling with the Journey of Hope," says Pierce. "I went




with the Journey of Hope-it sounded much more exciting than Morganton." Pierce and McArdle, working out of offices hundreds of miles apart, had one month to secure meals, lodging and media coverage for the Journey of Hope. In June, everyone met for the first time in Toledo, Ohio, where they leased three vans for support vehicles. One of the vans broke down 25 miles out of town, a sign of the challenges that would lay ahead. When they arrived in San Diego, they realized one of their crew members was not 21 and could not drive a support vehicle. The team members started calling chapter brothers back home. Fortunately, Dan Raab from Drexel University answered the call and flew out immediately. By the time the team departed from Mission Bay, they had still not met their fund-raising goal and many logistics needed to be finalized. Karlovec, McArdle and Pierce spent countless hours on the phone throughout the summer setting up events and finalizing logistics. Pierce and McArdle were always working a day ahead of the team and often shot into town in advance of the cyclists. After their day's ride, the team often held toll-roads, car washes and other events to help reach the projects fund-raising goals! When asked about the differences between the 1988 and 1998 treks, McArdle explains that the event became more organized with experience. "The 1988 Journey of Hope was almost exclusively student run," she says. "The addition of full time Journey of Hope staff and the return of veteran cyclists helped the project grow." McArdle adds that despite the challenges of 1988 she would (and did) do it all over again. "It was the biggest adventure anyone could possibly have." Pierce, Karlovec, and cyclists Jason Myer, Rick Guest and Steve Wolf all returned to help with the continued sue-

Different in look, but similar in statement -- An '88 rider prepares to continue his trek across the country. cess and growth of the Journey of Hope. Through various roles, and with the support of too many people to name, these four individuals developed the Journey of Hope into what it is today. Kaiser and McArdle both went on to serve as executive directors of Push America. Pierce worked with the Journey of Hope for seven years, and remains involved as a strong supporter of Push America's Gear Up Florida event. Always the entrepreneur, Karlovec currently

runs his own business in Cleveland, Ohio. A picture of the '88 Journey of Hope team still hangs proudly on his wall. "Not a day goes by that I don't think about an experience through Push America," says Karlovec. The Journey of Hope never strays far from the hearts of those who have taken on the challenge. Just ask the 456 l?i Kapps and one Pi Beta Phi who have made the journey! FALL 1998

No one ever said

life was going to be easy aking new friends and choosing a major are challenges that everyone faces in college. Life at a university has no curfews, no parents and a whole new set of rules by which to live. Every day is a new learning experience. Your favorite 1V show starts in 10 minutes, the Psychology midterm is at 8 a.m. tomorrow, your girlfriend wants you to go to a movie, the Student Government meeting began 20 minutes ago, intramural softball signups are happening somewhere on campus, and your wallet is begging you to find a job. Does this sound like a typical day? It is in college. The decisions you make today can change the rest of your life. Nobody ever said that college was going to be easy. College and life are filled with many challenges, but hard work, determination and the right set of tools can be a road map for success. Where is your roadmap? Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity has been in the business of building better men for almost 100 years. The 75,000 men that are a part of America's leading Fraternity have created a brotherhood that can give you the answers you need. Through The Journey Project, Pi Kappa Phi gives every student member the tools he needs to survive in college 10 STAR & LAMP

and succeed in the real world. What tools do you need? Pi Kappa Phi offers education through brotherhood and leadership through service like no other fraternity in America. Our brothers receive facul ty-level academic coaching, attend a nationally known leadership development school and are guided through career and lifeplanning workshops by alumni across the country. The great part is that we can do all of this and still have time to have all the fun of college. Are you ready to be challenged to succeed? Life may not be easy, but it's definitely a Journey you won't want to miss. FIRST YEAR

The first step in building better men is creating balanced scholars. No one can make the transition from high school to college easy, but Pi Kappa Phi launched a revolutionary Collegiate Success Program to help our members bridge the gap and succeed

inside and outside the classroom. The Collegiate Success Program is a written curriculum that is taught to all our new members by a faculty member who is paid by Pi Kappa Phi to serve as the chapter's Academic Coach. The Fraternity also provides a timemanagement tool, the Pi Kapp Planner, free to all members. Balance is necessary to survive college, and Pi Kappa Phi offers the tools today's students need to excel. SECOND YEAR

A fraternity is about more than what goes on in class every day. President John F. Kennedy said that 50 percent of a man's education comes from what he does outside the classroom.



... __


Pi Kappa Phi expects our members to be active leaders on campus and in the community. Because of this belief in building better men through active involvement, the Fraternity provides leadership-training opportunities that are unparalleled in the university world. Every year, Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity presents the highest corporate-level leadership conferences available in America. Our Sophomore Leadership Institute features the Covey Leadership Center's presentation of Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. All of our sophomore members attend this institute for the price of lunch, instead of the significantly higher corporate rate. THIRD & FOURTH YEAR

Getting great grades and leading the campus are only a small part of college life; the true reason for college is to prepare men for successful lives. More than 75,000 Pi Kappa Phi brothers have graduated from college and gone on to become great role models for our youth. These men have committed to mentor our undergraduate members and help them make the jump into the real world . Junior and senior members of the Fraternity are invited to attend Career & Life- Planning Conclaves, where they are taught the expertise they need to leave college ready to succeed. Brothers are taught real skills in career development and life planning.


When a man joins Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, he is making friends of a lifetime - brothers who he will stay in touch with long after graduation. But Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity is much more than a social fraternity; it is leadership, service and an academic society focused on helping our members make the most of their collegiate experiences and their lives. Through national leadership conferences and scholarship programming, Pi Kappa Phi is building better men - who are leaders on their campus and who graduate to become leaders in their communities. Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity gives young men the tools they need to have a successful collegiate experience and fulfilling life's journey WILL ITWORK?

Since The Journey Project's launch in 1995, the members of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity have chosen to lead the fraternity world. Almost 60 percent of our brothers have committed to meet the higher standards of Level II of The Journey and are reaping the rewards that go with it. Statistics have shown that in our chapters that have elected to meet the standards of Level II, grades improved dramatically, pre-initiation to initiation retention has increased and stabilized, and the size of the chapter has grown.

..Journey Project staff Beginning in September, The Journey will be led by a new director as we continue to build a better Fraternity for each of our members. Jeremy Galvin (IOWA STATE -ALPHA OMICRON) DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMS

Jeremy began his career with the Journey Project as the Archon of Alpha Omicron Chapter. During his tenure as president, Iowa State took the lead and became the first fully implemented Level II Journey Chapter. He experienced firsthand the work it takes to build a good chapter into a great chapter. Brother Galvin graduated from Iowa State in 1997 with a degree in education - a perfect fit for working with the Journey! He served as the Leadership Consultant for the Midwest in 1997-1998. Contact Jeremy with any questions about the Benefits of Level II of The Journey, including Academic Coaches, the Sophomore Leadership Institute and Career and Life-Planning Conclaves.

Our brothers are on a Journey, and they have one simple mission : Build Better Men.

called it home. On Aug. 8-12, Chicago, Ill., welcomed the Fraternity back in grand fashion for the 46th Supreme Chapte.r. Enveloped by the historic Congress Hotel and majestic skyline of the Windy City, over 600 Pi Kappa Phis to honor milestones, to rewrite laws, to network between brothers and to celebrate Fraternity. From across town to across the country, brothers began their registration throughout the day on Saturday, Aug. 8. During the bustling ofluggage and programs, the Foundation, Push America and Properties were already hard at work with their board meetings, which gave way to the first Chapter Session. All the commotion eventually settled, however, and the Supreme Banquet kicked-off events, highlighted by the presentation of the Mr. Pi Kappa Phi Award and the Hall of Fame Inductee (see related stories on page 20-21) . Roge.r Crouch (Old Dominion- Gamma Beta) ended the banquet on a celestial note. Crouch se.rved as a payload specialist aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia last summe.r. He presented Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. T1rnmes with a small memento of the trip-a Pi Kappa Phi flag that he carried Qn the mission, as well as a collage of pictures documenting the voyage. A whirlwind of meeting and legislative sessions occupied most of the week. To break up the day, themed lunches allowed undergraduates the chance to honor their fellow brothers, as well as find out about the entities of the Fraternity. Sunday's Push America luncheon began this special programming, followed by the Foundation on Monday and Pi Kappa Phi on Tuesday. The children and spouses program this year featured tours of the Shedd Aquarium, visit to the Navy Pie.r Children's Museum, an Architectural Boat Tour and a Children's Banquet. Family and friends also joined the Pi Kappa Phi brothers for a cruise on the Spirit of Chicago and a Chicago classic: cookout and White Sox baseball. As another successful Chapte.r has come to a dose, one can now begin to look forward to the 47th Supreme Chapter and the maturing of a Fraternity and a second millennium: Orlando, Fla., August, 2000.

s Student of the Year recipient, one would think that the life of Mike Kerr (Maryland - Eta Epsilon) ould be simple, almost dull: go to class, study, eat, sleep, go to class, study, take test, etc. But Kerr's last year was a little bit more interesting than most. When he was elected archon in May 1997, Kerr inherited a chapter with dwindling numbers, no house, adversity in the brotherhood, no alumni boards, no chapter advisor and an $18,000 debt. "It's safe to say I entered the semester with a lot of doubts," recounts Kerr. Those doubts were wrestled with daily, Kerr remembers, but optimism and a strong focus on brotherhood pulled the chapter (and Kerr) through the year. "The key to our success was staying focused on the principles established in ritual; that brotherhood was not made by how much money you had or

a make or break year." WeD, Bta Epsilon made it. The chapter welcomed 18 associate members without a house, retained 100 percent of pre-initiates, cut their debt in half, became a Level II Journey Chapter, won the President's Cup for best fraternity, picked up three top IFC awards, established full alumni advisory boards (including a housing corporation), filled their newly remodeled house and finished the spring semester with a 3.24 GPA-the highest on campus. And Kerr made it, too. Beside his immense duties as archon, he fund raised over $4,000 for the Journey of Hope (and trained), received the Bruce Rogers' Award as a cyclist (the first from Eta Epsilon), was co-historian for Omicron Delta Kappa Honor Society, was elected president of Order of Omega Society, participated in the Government and Politics Honors program and cofounded the Apogee Institute, a program that allows Greek leaders to earn credits as chapter managers. He also maintained a 4.0 GPA within his major, and a 3.62 overall. So how did this whirlwind of a semester leave Kerr? Simply, "it's going to take me a whole other year to take this all in," he jokes: FALL 1998


Gasparini awarded Area Governor of the Year

Durward Owen (Roanoke â&#x20AC;˘ XI) congratulates Delta Chi Fraternity Executive

Director Ray Galbreth. 18 STAR&. lAMP

For Scott Gasparini (Clemson - Zeta Alpha), the key to being selected as the Area Governor of the Year was to simply not worry about being an 'area governor: "You don't need a title for what I do - which is to offer yourself as a brother first," explains Gasparini. "I want my chapters to trust me so much that even if they screw up, they feel comfortable enough to tell me and talk about it."

Gasparini's many activities allows him to better communicate with his chapters. He was one of the Founding Fathers of Zeta Alpha, held the national staff position of leadership consultant, is a Eucharist minister, is listed in Who's Who Among Young Americans and teaches youth wrestling. "The role of area governor has given me a great opportunity to give back to the fraternity what it has given me," says Gasparini. "My fraternity experience was incredible - I was able to interact with a variety of different people, make decisions that affect the entire organization and encourage others to join." Now, as a management recruiter for east coast locations of Dave & Buster's restaurants, Gasparini applies those same principles everyday.

Owen award presented to interfraternal professional Chances are, you don't know about this year's Durward W. Owen Interfraternity Award winner, Ray Galbreth. "Unless someone has had an intimate involvement with the Greek system, that person would have never heard of him," says Durward Owen (Roanoke- Xi) . Galbreth, the executive director of Delta

Chi Fraternity, has served his fraternity and the interfraternal world for over 20 years. He has played roles from chapter advisor to president of the Fraternity Executives Association, from editor of the Delta Chi Quarterly to vice president of FIPG. "The three previous recipients of this award all are 'high-profile' people, easily recognized by name and face," notes Owen. "Ray comes from a different mold-he is an in-thetrenches man; he always makes himself available when needed; he never turns down a request for help." Galbreth received the award at the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation luncheon during the Supreme Chapter.

decade ago, Keith Sheppard Drexel- Alpha Upsilon) was till active with his chapter. But that activity subsided as he grew lder and began to move out-ofcommunication with the undergraduates. Then Sheppard had a legacy. "When my son joined (the chapter), he was the one that reminded me of my lifetime commitment," says Sheppard. Since then, Sheppard has been an active advisor to Alpha Upsilon-enough to earn him the Chapter Advisor of the Year Award. "The chapter advisor is the most important person in the organization of the Fraternity today," notes Sheppard. "It is your job as advisor to bridge the undergraduates with the university, the alumni and the National Office."


That doesn't mean getting involved in the chapter's minute operations, however. According to Sheppard, the less influence the better. "I'm not there to run or oversee the chapter and its daily operations-that's their adventure," says Sheppard. "Rather, I'm there to provide advice

and make suggestions. "I can't have the same kind of fun I did when I was 19, 20; and they don't want the same kind of experiences I have at 45." Sheppard notes that times have changed, and sometimes alumni have a hard time adjusting. He references a story from his undergraduate experience, when the chapter house had a grand piano in the foyer. The entire chapter would huddle around the piano and sing at least once a week. Today, that piano is gone, and the chapter gathering only to sing is unheard-of. "So does that make the chapter wrong? " poses Sheppard. "Of course not, it just makes it different. The spirit is still there; the meaning is still there-it's just different."

FALL 1998


Harman named Mr. Pi Kappa Phi

ldred J. Harman {Iowa State- Alpha Omicron) is not a gambling man. "He always says that when you want to invest your money; at least make sure you have an even chance to get it back," says his friend and chapter brother William Rickert. As this year's Mr. Pi Kappa Phi Award recipient, however, Harman had taken a big gamble; he chanced that a fund-raising drive would yield enough support to help build a new Alpha Omicron chapter house at Iowa State University. In 1987 that gamble paid off. Pi Kappa Phi moved from their "completely worn out" house, to a new house that occupied the space of three residential lots. The chapter has since flourished, and went on to become the first implemented Journey Chapter. "Eldred is a very detailed man," notes Rickert. "He has been successful in whatever he has done." Harman joined Pi Kappa Phi in 1940, an animal husbandry major at Iowa State College. He graduated in 1947, after serving three-and-a-halfyears in the army -- in Europe and stateside -where he rose to rank of sergeant. After returning from their wartime service, both Harman and Rickert spent a semester as roommates at the old Pi Kappa Phi house. "Each of us would talk about our war experi-


20 STAR & lAMP

ences," remembers Rickert. "Eldred had told me that he was going to work hard in school because he was never going to be cold, hungry or poor." Harman's drive for success was reflected in his many activities on campus. Not only was he archon for Alpha Omicron, he became vice president of the Bock and Bridle Club, member of the men's glee club, member of the staff of the Iowa Agriculturist and (Harman's favorite) the college's livestock judging teams of 1942 and 1946. "To a person in animal science, being a part of the judging teams was like being on the football team," equates Harman. In 1947 he started his first career at the Rath Packing Company in Waterloo, Iowa, where he quickly became assistant head buyer in their hog procurement division. He later helped to start a new plant in Perry, Iowa, where he assumed the duties of livestock management. While in Perry, Harman decided to make a major career change. He accepted a position as president of the Home Federal Savings and Loan Association and, under his leadership, grew and eventually merged with American Federal of Des Moines. He retired in 1983 as vice president of the new association. Following his retirement, Harman decided to tackle one of his biggest challenges-rejuvenating his chapter at Iowa State, which had all but closed. With the house literally falling apart around them, Harman helped lead a group of alumni to rebuild and reactivate the Fraternity, where it now stands as one of the best on a large Greek campus. He also established a named scholarship for agriculture students living in the house, and has served on the Foundation Board for the past five years. 'The Mr. Pi Kappa Phi award is not an award you necessarily work for," reflects Harman. 'This award is one that is received as a result of the work you've done." Harman is the 32nd Mr. Pi Kappa Phi. Following is the Mr. Pi Kappa Phi Resolution:

The Fraternity of Pi Kappa Phi has caused to be prepared and presented to Brother Harman this award bearing the shield of the Fraternity as a testimony of our appreciation and esteem and permanent memento of this honorable award.

ewly inducted Hall-of-Farner Alan Sundberg (Florida State Beta Eta) is considered a well-educated man and an premier legal mind in the state of Florida. He graduated from Florida State University with his bachelor's degree and went on to Harvard Law School. He has tenured law firms and sat on the Florida Supreme Court. He was even named to the Florida Constitutional Revision Committee. But some of Sundberg's most important lessons were learned outside the classroom and office library. "The old cliche is that fraternities are interfering with education of students," says Sundberg. "Fraternity life for me was a compliment to my education-in a way that classroom studies could not have taught."


As both treasurer and archon at the Beta Eta Chapter, Sundberg learned the intricacies of leadership and motivation. His term as president was particularly exciting because the chapter had purchased its first house. "Just in dealing with the finances of it all, you receive opportunities that most people that young don't often get," notes Sundberg. Sundberg is considered the best of the best in his profession. Since receiving his Harvard degree in 1958, he has gone on to amass an impressive list of achievements and honors, including: Best Lawyers in America; Florida Sentencing Guidelines Commission; Florida Constitutional Revision Committee; U.S. Court of Appeals, 11th Circuit; Florida Supreme Court justice; and chairman of the governor's Task Force on Criminal Justice Reform. "Alan has enriched the fraternity by the many great things he has accomplished," says National Chaplain JeffWhalen (FloridaAlpha Epsilon) . "Those accomplishments reflect positively back on the Fraternity." Sundberg is currently general counsel for Florida State University. FALL 1998

J. Patrick Figley, D. Min. National President Pi Kappa Phi

FALL 1998


everal years ago the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation decided to sell the property at 7017 Nations Ford Road. This decision was based upon declining land values in the area of the "Cabin in the Woods" and the necessity to protect the Foundation's capital investment. Once the sale had been negotiated, the Fraternity was faced with the prospect of having to move. CEO Mark E. Timmes' concept was to place the Fraternity operations into a leased location for a period of time and use that interim to formulate a plan for building a permanent National Headquarters. Our search commenced in the southern area of Charlotte. We focused on this area because it was convenient for the vast majority of the staff, rather than relocating downtown or to the north (unless the deal was just too good to be turned down!) . The next step was to visit each of these properties and identify any hidden costs. Also,




we needed to ensure that each building gave us the professional look that we were seeking for the proper of Pi Kappa Phi. As we reviewed our options, we winnowed the list immediately down to four that were suitable, and then rank ordered these in terms of acceptability. The acceptability was based upon a combination of vintage, cost and the interior layout that was conducive to our operation. The National Council met in Charlotte and toured the buildings we were interested in, and provided their ideas on which site was most suitable. After whittling the list to two sites, we finally decided on the new office space. Journey Director Steve Whitby sat down and developed an interior design and layout to satisfy the needs of the Fraternity staff, the essentials of which included a large workroom for the production of manuals and all our mailings, a separate space for the Push staff and interns, a warehouse large enough to satisfy storage requirements, offices for all the division heads, a large open central area for all the 26 STAR & LAMP

support staff and a mezzanine floor for chapter services personnel. This design enabled the staff to achieve some of the unit integrity issues that were missing in the old location and provided each function sufficient square footage to be more efficient. Whitby's design called for large amounts of glass and white walls, which created a very different feel from the cabin. We continued the theme of the old building by bringing over as much of the paneling and built in cabinets as we could, and intend to install some of the paneling in the CEO's office and conference room, to maintain the emotional connection between the old building and new. The new building has an exciting and exhilarating feel to it. As compared to the cabin it is bright and light, feeling more spacious than it really is because of the high ceilings and windows, and we are taking steps to make it expressive of the National staff and its functions. We have taken the pictures and

plaques from the old building and hung them (plus many that could never be on the walls before for lack of space) and have placed the large flag on one of the interior walls. To further complete the inside decorative arrangements, we are asking each chapter to send us a 3 x 5 flag from their college. These flags will be hung from the overhead exposed steel rafters lend color and to give suitable recognition to our chapters. We hope that all Fraternity members will

come by for a tour of the Headquarters at the first opportunity!

In numbers after Its rechartering In 1987.

n the fall of 1947, Pi Kappa Phi chartered Alpha Psi chapter at Indiana University. As one of the first postwar charterings, Alpha Psi not only brought Pi Kappa Phi to a strong Midwestern university, but also rekindled the Fraternity's commitment to growth and expansion. It had been nearly 12 years since Pi Kappa Phi had installed a new chapter. With thousands of service men now corning home, colleges and universities swelled with enrollment and enthusiasm. Pi Kappa Phi and Alpha Psi would not be the exception. The Spring '46 semester is where the story of Alpha Psi begins. As a former member of the armed services and initiate of Sigma Chapter, Joe Drennan had transferred to the Indiana School 28 STAR & LAMP

of Journalism. After arriving on campus, Drennan quickly connected with four former service buddies and immediately began to discuss fraternity. In the matter of a few short months, Alpha Psi was to charter with 15 men. Today, both Indiana University and Alpha Psi Chapter are much different from their predecessor of the 1940s. The school has grown in size and enrollment, and the 15-man chapter once located at 504 E. Kirkwood Avenue is now a 120+ man group, housed in a beautiful structure located on North Jordan. In every way Alpha Psi has been a success. 'The student leadership, dedication of the chapter to the ideals of Pi Kappa Phi and the support of the alumni and Headquarters have made the difference," says past National President Phil Summers (Indiana- Alpha Psi).

structed sign. Today, Alpha Psi Is over

120 brothers strong and one of the premiere fraternities at Indiana. As a testament to their com-

mitment, Alpha Psi ranks among the Fraternity's best in a number of areas. The chapter was one of the first groups to commit to the Journey Project; in the last three years has raised over $16,000 for Push America; has had 12 Journey of Hope cyclists; and has initiated 116 men in three years. The chapter, however, was not without its problems. "We really struggled for many years," remembers Summers. Nevertheless, Alpha Psi's rechartering in 1987 allowed for many oftoday's accomplishments. "We were a small chapter prior to Ken Kaiser's arrival from the Headquarters," says Tony Cochren (Indiana- Alpha Psi) . "But even now,

11 years later, the undergrads try to stick to the values of the re-founding fathers." The chapter's most recent accomplishment was winning the prestigious Kroeg Award at the 46th Supreme Chapter in Chicago. "We were very thrilled," remarks Archon Patrick Sly. "It was awesome! When Nathan Hightower began to describe the winning chapter, we thought it sounded a lot like Alpha Psi, but we weren't sure." When asked about Alpha Psi's continued success, Patrick Sly simply says, 'There's a spirit about the house which leads people above expectation." FALL 1998

embarked on the journey to raise awareness about the Wolf. Although it's a degraded urban ri~r through much of Memphis, the Wolf emanates from fragile and relatively prist;ine swamps east and sduth of the city in North Mississippi and Fayette County, Tenn. In recent years, Tennessee officials and conservation groups have raised funds to protect the river's headwaters. The trek by Bridgman and FitzGerald began Saturday, April 25, at tbe source of the river in a spring-fed pond in Holly Spring National Forest near the Benton-Tippah county line in Mississippi. When it was through, the two were honored at e downtown cobblestones by City Councilman John Vagos and other city officials. Vagos, who has eJIPI!eSsed c;oncem about encroaching development and other threats to the Wolf, later praised the two for their journey. Local conseiVationists and river enthusiasts say ~rft• _.,....,,."""-·nyone trekki om the source of the Wolf to its mouth.

for an adventure. The first day featured an 18-mile hike through a network of swamps. The next day, when they finally were able to use their canoe, was even more difficult, marked by tiring portages across land and delays to hoist the vessel and gear-together weighing some 200 pounds-over countless tree branches extending over the river. They covered a mere five miles. "Sometimes, there'd be three trees together," says Bridgman. 'That was very draining." As if the natural obstacles weren't enough, the two arrived at a bridge to find that a stashed cooler full of drinks, ice and food had been stolen. Early in their week, Bridgman and FitzGerald began to benefit from an unlikely ally-rain. A rising tiver on Monday allowed them to cover in four hours what usually is a 10-hour trip. Further downpours swelled the river even more. And when the two emerged from a cypress swamp region known as Ghost River and reached Moscow, the river was so swift "it was like entering an expressway," remembers

Bridgman. They were making an estimated six to seven miles in some areas. The two communicated by radio and cell phone to supporters on land, checking in at predetermined points. Conservancy members and supporters also contributed meals andon the three nights they didn't camp-provided "hard shelter." Early Friday, May 1, while camping in Kennedy Park in Memphis, Bridgman and FitzGerald received a visit from police concerned about possible vagrants on a city facility. Upon learning about the river trip, the officers allowed them to stay and even offered some safety advice, Bridgman says. The primary sponsors for the trip were the conservancy and Outdoors Inc., which helped with equipment. Bridgeman said BellSouth Mobility also provided use of a cell phone. The distance of the trip was estimated at 100 miles, with some of the most difficult coming near tbe d. High water on the Mississippi has backed into the Wolf and killtd--;~:. rent, and to make matters works, Bridgman and FitzGerald were fighting a headwind . "It was strenuous," Bridgeman says.

New York assemblyman names Pi Kapp for top post

ichael S. Cushing (SUNY-Cortland Zeta Omicron) was recently named chief of staff to Long Island Assemblyman Thomas Alfano (R-Franklin Square) . Cushing previously served in the Office of Communications as senior coordinator to New York State Senate Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno (R-Brunswick) . In addition to his duties as chief of staff, Cushing will also serve as ranking committee coordinator of the Corporations, Authorities and Commissions Committee. Cushing is a 1992 graduate of SUNY-Cortland where he majored in political science. He served as a two-term member of the faculty senate and participated on the financial board. He also received several awards and honors from the university ranging from "Most Outstanding Freshman" to the recipient of the Roberta Purcell Persuasive Speaking Award for his speech entitled In Defense of the Line Item Veto . 34 STAR & LAMP

Cushing was initiated into Pi Kappa Phi in 1991. He served as Push chairman and as a delegate to the 1991 Charlotte Mid-Year Leadership Conference. In the fall of 1991, Cushing was selected to be Pi Kappa Phi's representative to State University College at Cortland's Inter-Greek Council. The Council is the university's governing board of Greek societies at Cortland. Cushing served two terms before graduating in 1992. "Pi Kappa Phi gave me the opportunity to get involved not only with campus affairs but the community at large," notes Cushing. "There is no doubt I wouldn't be where I am today without some of the very foundations Pi Kappa Phi gave to me."

Pi Kapp Scholars Where are they now 01 ........ processIng modules are ....... ported to an offshore

locallon In the North Sea. PI Kapp Scholar Jay Morris (Oklahoma - Alpha Galmla) Is respo11slble for the construcllon of such stnlctures.

i Kapp Scholars ranging from the senior manager of ticket sales for the Florida Marlins to the project manager for Chevron Overseas Petroleum in London are just a couple of examples of where the former award winners are today. The Pi Kapp Scholar program was started in the late 1970s. Every year 12 men are

awarded with one of the most significant honors that a Pi Kappa Phi can earn. This 36 STAR & LAMP

award is accompanied by.a $500 scholarship grant to each Pi Kapp selected. Applicants must submit a list of all their activities, a grade report and an essay of 300 words addressing the question: "Why are high scholarship standards important to Pi Kappa Phi?" Award recipients are selected by the Pi Kappa Phi Scholarship Committee and announced every January. Now let's take a look back at a few of our Pi Kapp Scholars:

ior manager of season ticket sales for the 1997 World Champion Florida Marlins. He is in charge of promoting season ticket sales and other major marketing programs for the baseball franchise. "Pi Kappa Phi gaveme the leadership skills and confidence to pursue my dreams and to succeed," adds Pierce. In 1995, Kevin Gorman (Seton Hall- Epsilon Theta) was named Pi Kapp Scholar. Deloitte & Touche, a reputable accounting firm and a member of the Big 6, employs Gorman as a senior accountant. Working in Parsippany, N.J., he is in charge of an entire staff of accountants and oversees the day-to-day operations of all the firm's audit engagements. Gorman also acts as a liaison between the firm and the CEO, CFO and a board of directors. Added to that, he manages the accounts of 12 clients ranging in size from $5 million to $5 billion in sales. Gorman says the award helped him make the leap from college to career. John Pierce (Florida State "Since receiving that Beta Eta) received the award honor three years ago, I have in 1989.

as the 'real world'," says Gorman. "I can truthfully say that if it wasn't for the Fraternity, it would have been a great deal harder to assimilate to my new way of life." Pi Kapp Scholars are not only working here in the U.S., but can also be found in the international job market. "Through my involvement with Pi Kappa Phi, I was able to go into a new place and adjust fairly easy," comments Jay Morris (OklahomaAlpha Gamma), who has lived in London for seven years. Morris is employed by Chevron Overseas Petroleum as a project manager. His position involves the management of large international oil and gas productions. His most recent project took him to Tengiz, Kazakstan, located in the former Soviet Union. How many of you have ever watched ESPN? The answer is probably most of us. And if you have ever traveled to the Middle East or

â&#x20AC;˘ Africa, and watched ESPN there, you can thank Brian Carroll (Indiana- Alpha Psi) . As international program planner, Carroll oversees the entire ESPN Atlantic network, which is aired throughout the Middle East and Africa. "Joining Pi Kappa Phi was the best decision I made and I've always been proud to have been selected as a Pi Kapp Scholar," notes Carroll. Throughout its long history, many undergraduates have benefitted from the Pi Kapp Scholar Award. "Along with other scholarships, this award allowed me to continue my education that would otherwise not have been affordable," said 1989 Scholar H. Brent Buroker (Purdue- Omega).

Today, the Pi Kapp Scholars program is funded by the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation through continued alumni support. For additional information on the Pi Kapp Scholars program or the Foundation, contact Michael Lowery at (704) 504-0888 xll2, or email at From 1977 to today, the Pi Kapp Scholars program has offered students the chance to not only win a scholarship, but to also become part of an elite group of Pi Kappa Phi men who have not only proven themselves in the classroom, but in their Fraternity as well.

It's what's in

a name

38 STAR & lAMP

any buildings, especially those that adorn the academic backdrops of college campuses across the country, tend to blend together: "castle-looking"; "that dome building"; "the one with the plaza." But take those same buildings, and give them an identity-a nameand they become as alive as the people they were named after. So that always begs the inquisitive person to question whether they know that building's namesake. Was he a great scholar, a published scientist or a famous business man? Then, was he a Pi Kappa Phi? The following buildings were forever immortalized with the names of Pi Kapps who have had a significant impact in their related careers. These men were true builders of themselves, and were so honored with the houses they created.

Lynn. Mark is the vice chairman of the board of Publix Super Markets Inc. The over 30,000-square-foot center was designed to accommodate the "whole person," according to the Hollises. The center includes a 2,500 square-foot fitness room; aerobic/dance studio; Olympic size pool; student lounge; a game room with eight pool tables, air hockey, pinball machines, fooseball, darts, video games and a large screen 1V; and a student resource room including healthfwellness materials, leadership materials and other resources. The most visible feature of the new building is a bronze, C-toned, 575 pound Victory Bell set in a tower over 43 feet high. An inscription on the bell reads, "Victory comes from doing your best." Rinker Field House

Stetson University

As part of the Hollis Center, the Rinker Field House adds a perfect compliment to the main building, thanks to fellow Chi alumnus M.E. Rinker Sr. The Field House includes an NCAAsize basketball court (or two high school size courts) along with spectator seating. The gleaming wood court also can be used for volleyball and badminton and to stage student entertainment events.

Hollis Center

Gowen Hall

Stetson University

University of Washington

On Feb. 7, 1998, the Hollis Center at Stetson University opened its doors for the first time, thanks to the $4 .3 million contribution by Mark Hollis (Stetson - Chi) and his wife

The renaming of 1932 Condon Hall to Gowen Hall was in remembrance of Herbert H. Gowen (Washington- Alpha Delta) who was the leading intellectual on the campus,

and was a "one-man show" in the Oriental Studies department from 1909-1944. Not only did he teach Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Near Eastern literature and history, he was also one of Seattle's most familiar Episcopal ministers. Gowen was alleged to have read a book a day. Mackenzie Hall

University ofWashington Donald H. Mackenzie (Washington- Alpha Delta) was the chair of the Department of Accounting and a faculty member at the University of Washington from 1929 to 1951. As an undergraduate, he played on the University's first hockey team, which he later coached. In addition to his faculty status and many local organizations, he was an intermediary in many wage disputes in the area. The hall that this Pi Kapp's name now accents was completed in 1960 and houses the College of Business. Pickens Rehabilitation Center,

Duke University In the fall of 1925, the center for the Duke football team was asked to help carry the 1, 700 pound casket of the founding father of the University, James B. Duke, during his funeral. That man was Marshall Pickens (Duke - Mu), and from that moment on, continued to symbolically carry the honor of the University through his professional work.

Pickens was the first field representative to travel for the Duke Endowment, which allotted funds to hospitals and child-care programs. He quickly advanced to associate director, director and executive director, and was named a trustee of the Endowment in 1951. He also served as president of the United Way of the Greater Carolinas, along with numerous other affiliations.

(Opposite) The Rinker Field House plaque marks only a portion of the large Hollis Center (above), both named after Pi Kappa Phis.

Jones Cancer Research Facility

Duke University As head of the J.A. Jones Construction Co., one of the world's top-five contracting firms, Edwin L. Jones Jr. (Duke- Mu) was perennially listed in all the appropriate "Who's Who" lists. He enjoyed a 40-year association at the University, first as a project engineer for the physics' and doctors' buildings, and later president of the alumni association and foundation trustee. Jones and his company donated $1 million to the construction of a 60,000 square-foot cancer research facility, in memory of his father. With the building's completion in the late 70s, the center ranked first among other such centers. Shellenberger Hall

Kansas State University John A. Shellenberger (Washington -Alpha Delta) was born in Moline, Ill., in 1900. He spent much of his boyhood on a farm in the state of Washington. He earned his bachelor's FALL 1998


Lifelong degree from the University of Washington, his M.S. in milling engineering from Kansas State University and his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Minnesota in 1933. He

came to the KSU staff after a two-year tenure in Argentina as a consultant to the Argentine government. As head of the Department of Flour and Feed Milling Industries for 21 years, Shellenberger helped develop the only such university department in the western world (now called grain science and industry) . The building was named after Shellenberger, fol lowing a disastrous fire and its subsequent rebuilding in 19 57 . Henry H. Fowler 1929 Alumni House Roanoke College History buffs may be able to tell you that the last balanced federal budget was composed under President Lyndon B. Johnson. The author of that budget was Henry H. Fowler (Roanoke- Xi). Moving from Roanoke College to Yale University Law School, Fowler became a lawyer and was on the Tennessee Valley Authority's legal staff when the U.S. Supreme Court had challenged the lVA's constitutionality in the 1930s. After Fowler and his team won the case, he was bitten by the Washington bug. He held a number defense department posts under President Harry Truman and was a member of the National Security Council. Fowler then became John Kennedy's undersecretary of the treasury in 1961, before becoming full secretary under LBJ. On Oct. 24, 1997, the college renamed its alumni center in Fowler's honor. Hollings' Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Charleston, S.C.

In a naming ceremony on August 21, 1995, Sen. Fritz Hollings (Charleston- Alpha) joked that he has received many offers over the years to have buildings, roads and bridges named for him and always refused-except this one. As a major shipyard for the U.S. military, Charleston was in the shadow of possible base closures, which would have affected a good portion of the city's population . As a

Georgia Tech Scheduled for dedication in 1999, the Institute became a reality with the $5 million donation by Parker Petit (Georgia Tech- Iota) in 1996. Petit founded Healthdyne, where he developed the world's first home physiological monitoring device, used in the management of infants

Georgia Tech George Griffin (Georgia Tech- Iota), a 1922 civil engineering graduate, spent most of his adult life at Tech, first as a math instructor and a track and football coach. He was later named assistant dean of students, and in 1946 was promoted to dean of students, where he served until retiring in 1964. Being such a positive presence on and off the campus, it was only fit-

Petit was inducted into the Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame in 1994 and currently serves as a Foundation board member. He was also instrumental in securing and constructing a new Iota Chapter house.

ting that the new student center in 1992 be named after Griffin. The building houses the Student Services Building, the Theater for the Arts and the plaza connecting them, which is decorated with a statue of Griffin resting on a bench. Griffin was inducted into the Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame.

Year initiated


n November 1971, the National Council met in Atlanta, Ga., at an airport motel. Early on the agenda that Saturday was the subject of a permanent Administrative Office for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. Based on the documentation I had provided, the Council agreed to the continued location of the Administrative Office in Charlotte, N.C., and for the Fraternity to proceed in developing a program whereby a permanent building would be constructed. Previously, we had been working in a frame home converted for office purposes. The meeting ended late in the afternoon, and the Council members and I had been invited to then National Secretary Phil Tappy's {GeorgiaLambda) house for dinner. I drove a station wagon, and Elmer Jost (Stetson - Chi) was seated in the front seat with me. Jack Steward {Oregon State- Alpha Zeta) and Ted Scharfenstein (Florida Southern - Beta Beta) were in the back seat. As we were driving along, Elmer again brought up the subject of funding a new Administrative Office. His proposal was that we send letters to all alumni asking for a $20 contribution from every alumnus, numbering approximately 22,000 at that time. I believed I had some feeling for fund raising and proceeded to "lecture" Elmer that to raise large funds, you did not do so by sending letters to all the alumni of the Fraternity. Elmer quickly indicated that if I were so smart, how would I suggest we do it. "Elmer, if you will give the Fraternity $250 to build a Headquarter's building, I will also give the Fraternity $250," I said, inferring that the way you raise money was eyeball-to-eyeball. "Durward, if you will give $250, since I am worth a lot more than you are, I will give $2,000" Elmer quickly said. "Elmer, I wasn't kidding," I replied . "Neither was I," was Elmer's response, and he proceeded to pull out his checkbook and write a check for $2,000.

I looked in the mirror at Ted in the back seat and said, "Ted, how much are you going to give?" He said he would match my $250. By this time, Jack was very uncomfortable and

did not wait for me to ask the question. "Durward, you can count me in for $250 also," Jack said. We were rather excited about what we had accomplished already. When we got to Phil's house, Ted and I proceeded to tell John Wilson {Emory- Eta) exactly what had transpired on the ride there. John wrote me a check for $500, plus more later. This same procedure continued throughout the evening until every person there, including Jerry Matthews {Samford- Alpha Eta), a staff member, had made either a financial contribution or a pledge. In other words, in two hours time we had raised $7,000. I had written on 3x5 cards the pledges and contributions being made that evening and made it a practice for three or four months following this to always have those cards, along with blank ones, in my pocket. Within two months I raised $22,000 with which we purchased two acres of land on I-77. The same story was continued, resulting in a total of $56,000 being raised in less than one year's time. It should be noted that this was done without tax exemption for money being donated. The smallest gift was $6.60 from Al Brown (N.J.I.T.- Beta Alpha); $7,500 from Elmer and his estate was the largest.

e are all builders in our own right. We construct careers, families, attitudes and goals; we build ideas about life; we form foundations for our personal fulfillment and spirituality.


From your local priest to missionaries across the globe, Pi Kappa Phi may also be found in the often overlooked places of spiritual worship and missionary aid. The next issue of the Star & Lamp will take a closer look at the religious roles some Pi Kappa Phi brothers play. This original drawing was produced by Pi Kappa Phi Assistant Director of Communications Laura Hogan, a graduate of the University of Michigan. Hogan uses oil on watercolor paper to produce this image of divinity.

Do you know of a brother whose occupation, study or volunteer work involves a church or religious group? Please send all story idea submissions to the Star & Lamp by Nov. 13.
