ULM Pi Kappa Alpha chapter members win conference awards

Published March 09, 2015

The University of Louisiana at Monroe’s Eta Omicron Chapter of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity recently attended the Regional Pike University Leadership Conference in Dallas, Texas. The two-day workshop brought in over 450 members from five states.

Representing Pi Kappa Alpha chapters from Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, participants attended lectures and sessions on public speaking, branding, personal finance, alumni relations, and Title IX.
The ULM chapter received the conference award for having the highest member attendance at the event—30 members. The group was accompanied by Pi Kappa Alpha staff adviser, Tommy Walpole.


“Pi Kappa Alpha is a leader in the Greek world in the area of educational programming offered to our undergraduate members,” said Walpole.

“The ULM Pike Alumni Association provided financial support to our undergraduate chapter and is proud that almost one-third of the chapter—30 ULM Pikes total—were able to attend this leadership conference. Our alumni feel investing in the education of our undergraduate members is a top priority each year.”

Individual participation awards were also presented.

Seniors Addison McDougle, a construction major from Sterlington, and Allen Perry, a kinesiology major from Leesville, were recognized with Gold Level Participation awards for attending at least five “Pike University” events during their time as undergraduates.

Sophomores Alec Shell, a kinesiology major from Monroe, and Spencer Perkins, a risk management and insurance major from Calhoun, were recognized with Garnet Level Participation awards for attending their third “Pike University” event.

Pi Kappa Alpha has 224 chapters in North America and is headquartered in Memphis, Tenn.

The Pi Kappa Alpha chapter at ULM was founded in 1972.
