HAMMOND – For the second consecutive year, the Southeastern Louisiana University Epsilon Phi Chapter of Delta Tau Delta has been ranked second in the nation and also received the prestigious Hugh Shields Award at the recent division leadership conference in Raleigh, N.C.
The chapter was ranked second among 110 chapters in the United States, while
the Shields Award is given annually to the top 10 chapters of Delta Tau Delta across the nation, said Chapter Advisor Gene Pregeant. The award is based on overall performance and programming in the areas of academics, finances, recruitment, membership education, operations, campus leadership, service and alumni relations.
“To win this award is a huge honor for our chapter,” said Matt Taylor of Terrytown, chapter president. “It’s nice to see all our hard work recognized on a national level.”
The chapter also received the Chapter of Excellence Award, the highest regional honor a chapter can earn. Epsilon Phi was recognized for its work with Natalbany Elementary School in the Adopt-a-School Program and its service work with the Southeastern Laboratory School and with Chefs Evening, the university’s annual fund raising event.
