John Thomas “JT” Harrington of Center, Texas has been named the 2018 recipient of the Robert G. Crew Freshman Leadership Scholarship.
The Beta Omicron Alumni Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity awards the 500 dollar stipend each Fall to a freshman at Northwestern State University, recognizing a male student who has demonstrated leadership and good character through their involvement in organizations while in high school.
The Radiology major was announced as this year’s recipient at NSU Homecoming activities on Saturday, October 27, 2018.
At Shelbyville High School, Harrington earned a 3.6 GPA and was involved in the Distinguished Program, National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, varsity football, track, powerlifting, and volunteered with the Special Olympics.
After graduating from NSU, Harrington plans to pursue graduate studies in nuclear medicine.
In February, the scholarship was renamed in memory of Robert G. Crew, an alumnus of Pi Kappa Phi and longtime administrator at Northwestern State University, as a tribute to his lifelong dedication to helping students achieve success.
