Student leaders from Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity’s Beta Omicron Chapter were recognized in front of a crowd of 3,000 fans at Northwestern State University’s basketball game Tuesday night. The Chapter and winners of the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation’s ‘Extra Mile” scholarship were called to half-court in Prather Coliseum during NSU’s game against Louisiana Tech on December 2.
Twice a year since 2008, the NSU chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity has awarded David D. Morgan Extra Mile Scholarships recognizing members for extra effort and performance in the classroom, in campus involvement, in fraternity membership, and for working their way through college.
This fall, Morgan, a 1973 NSU graduate and member of Pi Kappa Phi, created a 1-million-dollar endowment to carry the program nationwide to more than 180 Pi Kapp chapters. Over $50,000 is being awarded this year across the country.
This semester, from NSU’s Beta Omicron chapter, six members were winners. Sean Austin, Manton Capers, Zack Cockerham, Anthony Hunter, Kolt Kays and T.J. O’Rourke were awarded more than $3,500 by the Morgan ‘Extra Mile’ Scholarship Program.
More Pi Kapps at NSU will receive thousands of dollars this Spring and in future years for going the Extra Mile as college students and fraternity members.
