SigEp wins six awards at national conference

March 2, 2012

Monmouth’s Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter recently brought home six awards from Carlson Leadership Academy, a national program of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Twenty-one members attended the Carlson Leadership Academy Feb. 24-26 in Lombard, Ill. The focus of the conference was to deliver high caliber training through regional programs during February. The conference placed emphasis on using each member’s individual strengths to build a complete team.

The Illinois Gamma Chapter brought home six awards. They were awarded the Scholastic Cup for having a collective grade point average over 3.0 of 3.064 in 2011. The chapter was presented the Excelsior Award for outstanding improvement in a core area of operation. Alex Holt was presented the J. Edward Zollinger Award. Cyrus Turner was designated as a Zollinger Scholar. Turner received a scholarship for $500 for his junior and senior year. Thomas Sargent, the fraternity’s adviser, and Monmouth College trustee Bradley Nahrstadt were awarded Distinguished Alumnus. Sigma Phi Epsilon also took home a bronze plaque for Residential Learning Community Accreditation.

“After my third CLA, I would definitely say that this one was the best,” said Roy Sye, chapter president. “Not only did we get to bring 21 members of our chapter, but we also returned with six awards. We were the most decorated Sig Ep chapter present. These awards are a direct reflection of the past year and they have helped motivate our chapter to continue to excel and be on top at Monmouth College. We most definitely look forward to next year.”

Some Monmouth Sigma Phi Epsilon members will also attend the National Ruck Leadership Institute this summer.
