Beta Beta Chapter of Phi Delta Chi Receives Several National Awards

The Beta Beta Chapter of the Professional Pharmacy Fraternity, Phi Delta Chi, went to the 65th Grand Council in San Antonio, TX from August 2-6. Grand Council is a national meeting for all Chapters of the fraternity, and it is held every other year.

The Beta Beta Chapter received several national awards. The Chapter Publication, The Les Nouvelles, placed second in the nation. With 35 service projects throughout the year, Beta Beta placed third in the service projects category. Beta Beta's professional window display on Prostate Cancer placed third in the nation, as brothers from the chapter drove over 1500 miles to display the board in every major city in the state of Louisiana.

The Thurston Cup, which is Phi Delta Chi's highest award, is judged on submitted reports that include Brotherhood, Service, Window Display, Scholarship, Leadership, and Publication. The Beta Beta Chapter placed 4th overall in the Thurston Cup. Last year, the Chapter placed 6th overall. Since the Chapter's creation in 1959, Beta Beta has won the highest award 8 times.

Six Active Brothers attended the national meeting, including Coy Durke, Davey Legendre, Paul Lemaire, Brian Richard, Scott Stevens, and Ryan O'Glee. Four Alumni Brothers also attended.
