BY ADAM PHILLIPS • ILLUSTRATION BY JARED HORMAN ON MARCH 26, 2014, we launched our new star & lamp website. The site is an addition to the print magazine you’re reading now—not a replacement. We realize that everyone wants to consume content in different ways. We are confident the new star & lamp website affords us the opportunity to reach more people with the successes of our chapters, members and friends. The star & lamp site offers a timely and socially engaging platform to celebrate the successes of our chapters and members while providing entertaining and educational information. Through various surveys over the past year, we have heard loud and clear that you, our members, want to hear about your chapter and the accomplishments of other Pi Kappa Phi alumni. In addition to the stories of success from our undergraduates, alumni and friends, we want to bring you the information and content that we think all of our many audiences will find entertaining and useful, all while strengthening your connection to Pi Kappa Phi. Currently, the star & lamp website has columns on published members of Pi Kappa Phi, members in arts and entertainment, a column dedicated solely to engaged friends, alumni and staff sharing mentoring advice and lessons they’ve learned, pieces of memorabilia

and archives from the headquarters in Charlotte, and so much more. We’ll also have additional sections of the site that will continue to roll out as we move forward. And that’s all in addition to the news and successes from Pi Kappa Phi being posted in real-time. Rather than holding information to publish or post quarterly, we are reporting good news when it happens. We are encouraging chapters and members to get in the habit of submitting their news. Anyone can submit news with the link at the top of the site. Of course is still the primary source for information, resources and event registrations related to Pi Kappa Phi. 

IN LATE 2013, PI KAPPA PHI put into

motion a new initiative to recognize young alumni for their achievements after their undergraduate careers have come to an end. After several weeks of initial legwork by the Pi Kappa Phi alumni engagement team, we are extremely excited to introduce to you the first class of Thirty Under 30 honorees. All of these alumni were nominated to be included in the initial Thirty Under 30 class by their peers, fellow alumni, friends of the fraternity and more. From there, a committee of volunteers reviewed all of the nominees in areas such as impact, leadership, service, awards and recognition. After the herculean effort of reviewing all nominations was completed, we had our list of 30 names. On the following pages, you’ll read a little about each of these young men, and why they’ve been included in this group. Alumni of 25 different chapters—of all sizes, regions and age—are represented in the following pages painting a broad, yet distinguished, view of Pi Kappa Phi as a national organization. These alumni come from all types of backgrounds and were nominated for all types of outstanding achievement: volunteerism, professional achievement and more. While the qualifications of the honor can vary, all of the recipients have in common a commitment to our fraternal values. These men are all outstanding examples of how to live out the values of Pi Kappa Phi long after leaving your college campus . . .

step at a time


THE SAME WAY A LIBRARY is full of books, each

providing an imaginative moment in time, the world is full of people moving through the chapters of life creating their own story. Every day is a step closer to the conclusion, and every turn of events reminds us that we only have so much control over those stories. Our inability to edit the narrative secures that our first draft is our last and every story ends with one edition. As we reflect on the plot twists that changed the course of our lives, there are critical moments in time when we must embrace and harness the uncontrollable to affect positive change in our lives, and those around us. At eight-years-old, Max Conserva, Gamma (UC - Berkeley), was enjoying the warm summer sun on his bicycle in the quiet neighborhood of Simi Valley, Calif., when his story would change forever. Facing west at a green light, Max rolled down the curb into the crosswalk. A semitruck, facing north, made a right turn at his red light not seeing the small obstacle of a boy on his bike. Max was thrown off his bike and found himself caught between the truck and the asphalt in a split second. “Fortunately, before too long, some bystanders at the intersection who witnessed the accident ran out in front of the truck to force it to a stop. The driver was still oblivious to what had happened. Finally stopped, with people gathered, the truck was ordered to reverse. The truck rolled back, leaving what remained laying on the asphalt in the center of the lane. With my bike still in my right hand, I stood up, then fell back to the pavement. The rest of my life began,” Max recalls. His leg brutally injured, Max faced an exhausting and extensive recovery, aspects of which are forever ongoing.

18 || SPR2014

“I was caught underneath the truck and drug on my side against the asphalt for a sufficient distance resulting in severe skeletal, muscular and nerve damage to the lateral side of my right leg,” explains Max—now 33. “Between then and now, a lot of time has passed and a lot of work has been done. To put it simply, what I am left with is a leg missing a lot of important parts. I am missing many significant chunks of bone from my femur and tibia that are generally responsible for keeping one’s leg from collapsing in on itself. My leg is constantly attempting to buckle in ways that turn the stomach—forcing me to wear a four-pound, full leg brace comprised of polypropylene, carbon fiber and hardened steel.” All of the damage to Max’s leg also had significant impacts on his growth plates. Because the accident occurred early in his youth, Max’s “coming of age” was difficult in that one leg always seemed to lag behind in growth and development. Max’s right leg is now about an inch and half shorter with 30% less girth and a four-and-a-half size difference in shoes.

Adding to all of the obstacles and their incomprehensible nature, research of Max’s injury—and subsequent disability—has not realized the same progression as that of similar industries. Solutions for limb salvage have lagged behind prosthetics, primarily due to the unique nature of each case. In prosthetics, if in an individual has lost a limb with no other complicating damage, the injury is largely uniform with others who have lost limbs. There is a common starting point from which to develop a solution. The remainder of limb salvage represents the long tail of possibilities of injury combinations to the various muscular, skeletal, nerve, soft tissue and growth systems of the limb, none of which are individually common enough to demand dedicated research. The results are quasi-solutions that work sufficiently for all, but great for no one that is looking to push edge of performance. Despite the injury, the countless surgeries to salvage his limb and all of the effects listed, Max was, and is, determined to live a healthy and active life; a life not defined by his physical limitations, but by his mental capacity to overcome and succeed. Max went on to attend the University of California – Berkeley and became a member of Pi Kappa Phi— not because of a personal empathy with the mission of Push America, but because of the “normal” components of fraternity life. “During college, my connection to philanthropy and Push America was probably typical of the average Pi Kapp. I was aware of the organization and active to the extent to which the chapter at large was involved. I participated in the standard fundraising events and supported the Journey of Hope riders. To me it was simply another responsibility

of being a member of the fraternity. There was no particular draw or inspiration to involve myself further. I’m a Pi Kapp. Pi Kapps contribute to Push America. So, I contributed to Push America. No more, no less.” Nearly ten years removed from his collegiate experience, Max’s professional career was at a point that enabled him to begin exploring the foundations of his life and the progress with his own disability. Recognizing the limitations facing the medical field with respect to his injury, Max’s mind began conceptualizing the feasibility of taking matters into his own hands and working towards solutions vastly improving his own comfort and mobility. In a fortuitous matter of coincidence, Max rediscovered Push America in 2013 at the No Barriers Summit in Telluride, Colo. “A fellow Gamma alumnus was planning on attending the conference in a volunteer role with Push America Challenge. Knowing my personal goals, he invited me to join. I accepted based on the narrow idea that I may meet some engineers in the field that could contribute to my projects. Upon arriving I was blown away by what I experienced. The conference connected with me on every level—as a solutions developer, a participant and as a volunteer. In the most natural way imaginable my mindset of ‘What can I take from experience?’ quickly gave way to ‘What can I contribute to this conversation?’ I was confronted with a community where I felt compelled to participate.” A year prior to attending No Barriers marked the beginning of Max’s journey to take his condition in his own hands. “I became determined to revisit every avenue that could lead to a more functional life. For surgical options, I paid a visit to the

best orthopedic surgeons in California. For physical rehab, I consulted with physical therapists at UCSF and, for a new perspective, became involved with San Francisco Crossfit. For orthotics, I began to design and prototype my own ideas. If an improvement seemed feasible, I was going to give it a shot.”

the full context of life. Going forward Max would like to use his site as a platform to communicate a journey that may be shared by other likeminded individuals—both professionals interested in partnering for a common goal and other individuals fighting a similar battle that can learn something from his path.

Upon arriving at No Barriers with Push America and seeing so many enabled athletes put themselves out there, a desire to take his own risks began to build. Throughout his life, Max had committed a great deal of effort to concealing his disability from anyone beyond a few medical professionals.

“At this point I don’t ultimately know where the project will lead me, but that daily exercise of exposing my struggles has already made a significant positive impact on my life. My experience with No Barriers and Push America Challenge has forever altered philanthropy’s place in my life. I have been opened to the opportunity of being an active member in a deserving community of individuals and organizations. Now, a year later, I am gearing up for my first ever Push America fundraising event. This time around, I participate not out of obligation, but a genuine desire to simply be involved.” 

“Hiding my disability not only prevented others from understanding and helping, but also kept me from really examining my own disability in the full context of my life. I realized that if I was going to find individuals to help in my own journey, I would need to open up as well.” originally started as a simple idea for a site to contain Max’s medical records, but his experience with No Barriers ignited a transition into a public exploration of his disability in





Walking the stage offers more than a degree NOTHING WOULD STOP senior Emily Rose Hernandez from walking across the stage when she graduated from UNT in May, not even being paralyzed from the waist down.


During her commute to UNT in August 2009, one of the wheels on Hernandez’s truck came off, causing her to drive off an overpass. She broke her neck, shoulder, wrist and ribs, and her lungs collapsed twice. Her brain hemorrhaged and her spinal cord was injured, leaving her legs paralyzed. “After my wreck I was determined to get my life back on track ASAP,” says Hernandez. “I re-enrolled at the College of Visual Arts and Design at UNT the following August.”

Her journey Hernandez decided, not only that she wanted to earn her degrees and graduate, but that she wanted to be able to walk across the stage during the ceremony. After several years of rehabilitation, she was ready to see that dream come true— but it would take the aid of costly braces. The braces Hernandez needed would allow her legs to support her again and, ultimately, to walk. “I have been putting my entire heart and mind into earning both of my degrees within a four-year time period and achieving what I’ve been working so hard for since my wreck: walking across that stage,” Hernandez says. “Walking across the stage will be a gift to myself for my hard work.” When she found out the braces would cost thousands of dollars, she realized she would need help. Hernandez began fundraising through a crowdfunding website and had raised more than $3,500.

Community support When Gamma Tau Chapter archon Taylor Lindholm heard about Hernandez’s goal, he knew this could be a great opportunity for the fraternity to reach out to a fellow student. “Originally Emily went to the Office of Disability Accommodation for help and they referred her to our advisor, Jaime Blanton, who then reached out to the

20 || SPR2014

brothers with Emily’s story,” Lindholm says. “We immediately wanted to get involved.” Thanks in part to the UNT chapter’s philanthropic efforts and community service, the chapter has been recognized by UNT’s Office of Greek Life as Chapter of the Year for the past two years. “Helping others is a core value of our organization,” Blanton says. “We focus our efforts on helping people with disabilities to ensure that they are recognized for their abilities. In this case, what we are doing is helping the community recognize that Emily’s dream of walking across the stage at graduation is about having an equal college experience. It’s about making her dream a reality.” The Pi Kappa Phi chapter held several fundraisers around campus including a bike-a-thon and an Empathy Dinner for Emily’s cause. For the bike-a-thon, members of the fraternity rode stationary bikes on campus for 72 hours to raise awareness of Hernandez’s disability. “Emily came by each day of the bikea-thon,” Lindholm says. “She has the most upbeat personality and is the most engaging person I have ever met. It was truly life-changing to see her open up her heart to all the people who walked by during the bike-a-thon.”

Exceeding expectations Despite all the obstacles she had to overcome, Hernandez walked at graduation by using her torso to displace her weight and propel her forward. However, her journey is far from complete. After graduation, the braces will likely be modified into a reciprocating gait orthosis (RGO) that she can use to walk more normally, one leg at a time. This transition will occur once she masters walking with her current braces. Additionally, the aspiring art teacher is hoping for a specially-adapted vehicle so she can drive to work. In all, UNT’s Pi Kappa Phi members raised more than $3,000 in their efforts to support Hernandez and students like her. They hope to assist with any needed expenses for the RGO, the car or the vehicle adaptations. The ultimate goal, says Lindholm, is to help Hernandez achieve her dreams. “Walking across the stage isn’t just about me anymore,” Hernandez says. “It’s about all of the people who have supported me on my journey.”  (article courtesy of University of North Texas)



The Pi Kappa Phi commitment to leadership development dates back to 1959, when the first Pi Kapp College was held at Burnt Gin Camp, a recreational camp north of Charleston, SC. Today, as part of the educational curriculum, Pi Kapp College participants make an annual trip to Charleston to learn about Pi Kapp history.

2013 ANNUAL REPORT DEAR BROTHERS AND FRIENDS: As chairman, it is my pleasure to share with you information about your foundation’s performance for the year ending December 31, 2013. I write to you with mixed emotions. While our achievements from last year are very positive—we’ve made marked and measurable gains in important areas of operation—this is also my last column to you as your chairman. It has been an honor to serve and I can assure you that the men following me are talented, ready and more than capable. We have a very special, indeed uncommon, fraternity. As I travel the country on foundationrelated business, I am reminded of this each time I speak with our student leaders and alumni donors. When I hear their stories of what Pi Kappa Phi has meant to them, I am reminded of my own experiences at Omicron Chapter (Alabama) and humbled to bear witness to their personal, deep and abiding connection to Pi Kappa Phi.

In the pages that follow, you will see that the foundation had a very good year. Here are just a few points to consider. Our annual fund continues to ride a favorable trend line, up from $182,300 in 2011 to over $227,000 last year. This is an all-time high and represents a 25% increase within that time frame. Our 2013 efforts exceeded our budgeted revenue goal by 8% while saving nearly $10,000 on expenses. We believe these gains have come largely as a result of more effective communication and intentional outreach on the part of staff and volunteers while keeping a closer eye on how we’re spending our dollars. While raising money is certainly an important part of our mission, being thoughtful stewards of the gifts we have received is equally critical if we are to fulfill our mission and keep trust with our donors. Our investment committee carefully deploys our assets into the market following conservative investment guidelines approved by the board of trustees. In 2013, our endowment posted a 14.63% return for the year. While last year’s equity markets rose to record heights, I was reminded by the sage advice given to me by one of my predecessors when he said, “that in general, it is better for foundations to mitigate the downside and be risk balanced, even if it means underperforming in an up market.” Your foundation granted $206,488 to the fraternity through the annual grant for educational programming, scholarships and other distributions made to both chapters and individuals. It is important to note that $28,211 constituted special “one time” grants as the board of trustees approved a special distribution from several temporarily restricted funds that had remained inactive for many years.

While my report this year is very positive, I would be naïve to believe that there were no areas for improvement. We have noted, and recent attitudinal studies completed by the fraternity confirmed, that Pi Kappa Phi does a poor job maintaining contact with recent graduates. The foundation is no exception. The participation of our young alumni (men in the 22–29 age range) is poor despite many brothers indicating through surveys how important their fraternity experience was to their undergraduate career. We are also acutely aware of how crowded the charitable space has become. With over 961,000 registered public charities, many of whom perform valuable and important work in our donors’ communities, we must continue to tell our story in ever compelling and approachable ways for our current and future donors through improved technology and alumni directed programs and events.1 If you made a contribution to your foundation last year, we thank you for your gift. If were not a donor last year, what are you waiting for? Pi Kappa Phi is in a unique position to impact the lives of young men; men who are now bound with us in a common loyalty to each other and to Pi Kappa Phi. Your fraternity takes a backseat to no other fraternal organization and continues to lead the fraternity world in excellence through growth, service and commitment to building better men. Your foundation needs more fuel to drive its engine of success, and that is where you can make an immediate impact. So, if you are already a donor, I ask you to consider increasing your gift. If you have not yet given, join us now in advancing our cause. I welcome your thoughts and comments and can be reached at

Ribbon cutting a celebration at Alabama’s Omicron Chapter

complete a feasibility study on the necessary fundraising efforts they would need to build the new house. Over the next few months, Omicron engaged an architect, Kick Holmes of Mobile, Ala., to begin designing a house that captured the essence of Pi Kappa Phi (including a gate to the courtyard with an arch similar to College of Charleston as well as the great seal in the foyer). Omicron also worked diligently with Pennington to design campaign materials and arrange fundraising events. The hope was to gather a substantial amount of donations prior to the public announcement of the fundraising campaign. Emmett Dendy agreed to serve as campaign honorary chairman and Steve Trimmier ’63 agreed to serve as campaign chairman. Since Omicron was founded in 1917, the chapter was almost 100 years old; therefore, the theme of the campaign was “Building for the Next 100 Years.”

OVER 400 WERE in attendance for

a grand ribbon cutting ceremony held this spring at the new 28,000-square foot Omicron Chapter house at the University of Alabama. Notable brothers in attendance included Past National President Mark Jacobs, Chief Executive Officer Mark Timmes, Executive Director Emeritus Durward Owen and Mr. Pi Kappa Phi recipient Emmett Dendy. Speakers at the event included Warren DeBardelaben, president of the Omicron Club; David Richardson, treasurer of the Omicron Chapter; Andrew Fowler, archon of Omicron Chapter; Mark Timmes, CEO of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity; Dr. Judy Bonner, president of the University of Alabama; Dr. Robert Witt, chancellor of the University of Alabama School System; Steve Trimmier, fundraising chairman; and Emmett Dendy, Mr. Pi Kappa Phi recipient, football player at the University of Alabama, WWII survivor and honorary campaign chairman. The ribbon was cut by Dr. Robert Witt, Dr. Judy Bonner, Emmett Dendy and Warren DeBardelaben. The new chapter house is the first

fraternity house visible as you arrive on campus via University Boulevard and includes 40 student rooms and a full housemother’s suite. In 2010, with the University of Alabama rapidly expanding and several fraternities and sororities beginning the process of building new houses, Omicron Chapter was faced with a decision. The house they were in was nearly 50 years old and had only received cosmetic renovations throughout the years. There were three main options: sell the house and build a new one; refurbish the one they were in; or expand the one they were in along with major renovations. After studying the options and costs, the Omicron Club made the decision in 2011 that they would attempt to sell the house and build a new one. They submitted a proposal to the university and, in the fall of 2011, were granted the last available lot on the university’s main entrance, University Blvd. The current house was quickly sold to another fraternity, and the project for a new house was under way. The University of Alabama engaged a third party, Pennington and Company, to work with the Omicron Club and

When the campaign went public, they had already garnered commitments of $1.1 million. The current donation total is $1.57 million. Omicron Club plans to continue their fundraising efforts until they reach $2 million. The donations run through the University of Alabama and are earmarked for the Omicron house. In 2017, Omicron Chapter will celebrate its 100th anniversary. The chapter has initiated over 2,400 men. The University of Alabama currently has over 33,000 students. Fraternity and sorority membership at Alabama is growing at a tremendous rate with over 56 fraternities and sororities and more than 6,000 members. 

Greg Linder, Mr. Pi Kappa Phi 2013 never sought any sort of acclaim for his dedication. The reason he stays involved is simply because he wants other kids to have the same formative experience that he’s had.” He continued, “To me, he embodies selfless service, and he’s the kind of guy you want in an organization. But to him, he’s always just maintained an attitude of ‘I’m just a guy helping out.’” star & lamp asked Linder about his fraternal experience, the concept of leadership and advice for members.

If you could start college again tomorrow, what would you do differently? Why? THE MR. PI KAPPA PHI AWARD

is the fraternity’s highest and most prestigious honor to be bestowed upon a member. Although they come from different backgrounds and professions, all recipients of Mr. Pi Kappa Phi have one thing in common: a profound love of and dedication to their fraternity. In 2013, Greg Linder, Omega (Purdue), was selected as the recipient of the Mr. Pi Kappa Phi award. Greg Linder was initiated into Pi Kappa Phi in 1974, and went on to serve his chapter in many ways, including house manager, which helped establish Omega as one of Pi Kappa Phi’s leading chapters for years to come. Following his graduation, Linder went on to serve on the Omega House Corporation board of directors for ten years, including multiple terms as vice president. During Linder’s time on the board, the Omega Chapter suffered a devastating house fire in 1987. As his background and professional life are in contracting, Linder provided critical support and leadership during that difficult period, donating his time and expertise. After his time on his chapter’s housing corporation, Linder went on to join the Pi Kappa Phi Properties board of directors where he has continued to serve for 24 years in several roles. Linder’s time on the board ranks in the top echelon of longest serving members in fraternity history. Since his own membership and volunteerism began, Linder’s connection to Pi Kapp has strengthened as his two sons, Nick and Greg, both joined Pi Kappa Phi. When asked about his father’s commitment to Pi Kappa Phi, Nick, Psi (Cornell), remarked, “My dad has

If I had to start college all over again I would work harder in school, get my civil engineering degree and become president of my fraternity. When I was in school I didn’t understand how important it was to work hard. I’m tired of answering the question, “Are you an engineer?” and having to prove myself as otherwise qualified. I’ve always regretted not running for president of my fraternity. I had a sense that leadership was important to my future, but I had no idea how rewarding it could become in future years.

What have been your two or three most important/meaningful Pi Kappa Phi experiences? My two most meaningful Pi Kappa Phi experiences were initiating my two sons. The oldest was at Cornell where we initiated an 82-year-old Catholic priest at the same time. And the youngest was at Indiana with Dr. Phil Summers on the initiation team. After initiating my sons, I felt an even greater mission to help the fraternity succeed. My oldest son is on the Pi Kappa Phi Properties Board with me and the younger perspective he has brought to the board has been invaluable. I must say this has given me a fresh breath to extend my commitment to do more to help others.

Can you explain what you’ve recently learned about leadership in your own life? I’ve learned leadership can be as critical as making decisions in business and as minor as standing up for your beliefs even though they are unpopular. Leading others is simply training and motivation to perform. The satisfaction in helping others improve is a hidden benefit. When

my dad died of a heart attack at age 36, I committed to myself that I would control my stress and never allow it to harm me. The drive to succeed that comes naturally with leadership can be stressful. Some men spend their life hiding from stress. I believe by the time we are 30 we must learn how to control it, or we spend the rest of our lives trying to avoid stress, which means missed opportunities to grow.

What qualities do you look for in the people with whom you surround yourself, personally or professionally? The qualities in people with whom I surround myself are the same as I look for in employees, friends and even customers. I like someone who is straight forward and will tell it like it is. The people near me must be honest and dependable. These people must learn quickly and carry a smile. They must be loyal, quick witted and also humble.

What is a piece of advice you would give to current undergraduates or young alumni? The advice I have for a young alumni or undergraduate today is to work hard, but don’t be afraid to take risks. Grab any opportunities at leadership and run with them. Recognize that people judge you on your follow up, so if you agreed to show up or call them or reply in some way, they are waiting to judge you by your swift action. If you said you were going to be there, do it. Have solid moral values behind every decision you make because you are building your reputation on these qualities. Smile, let people know by your teeth that you are happy to be around them. Keep a positive attitude about your personal life and especially your work because you spend so much time there it’s not worth being miserable. Finally, understand that your fraternity is simply your base camp in college. It is just a stepping stone to connect you with friendships and begin your career. From there, go out in the world and make something happen! 
