A dozen members of the Beta Omicron Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity were recognized by Northwestern State University as part of its Greek Life Centennial celebration. Through its 100 for 100 program, NSU recognized 100 distinguished individuals for their notable contributions to fraternity and sorority life at the university over the last century.
The first 100 inductees will form the first class for the future Northwestern State University Greek Life Hall of Fame.
Pi Kappa Phi’s inductees included: Wes Breeden, Robert Broadwell, Robert Crew, John Levy Frederick, Doug Ireland, Walter Ledet, Lane Luckie, Valsin Marmillion, Jack McCain Jr., David D. Morgan, Michael E. “Mickey” Murphy, Hoyt J. Reed, and Joe Sampite.
Several wives and former Beta Omicron Chapter roses were also named to the 100 for 100, including: Jacque Crew (Sigma Sigma Sigma), wife of Robert Crew and honorary rose; Virginia Dixon Monceret (Sigma Sigma Sigma), former rose queen; and Sherry F. Morgan (Sigma Sigma Sigma), wife of David D. Morgan.
Finalists were awarded by a selection committee, which reviewed hundreds of nominations. Nominees must must have graduated with a degree from Northwestern State University a minimum of 10 years ago, and have met one or more of the following: involved in their fraternity/sorority locally and at the regional level or above; has contributed to the University during their time as an alumna/alumnus; involved in professional and/or civic activities; considered a leader in their chosen profession.
The inductees were recognized at a champagne toast on Saturday, April 9, as part of a full weekend of events to celebrate 100 years of Greek Life at NSU, including the Flavor of Louisiana, chapter meetings and open house, a festival on the downtown Natchitoches riverbank, and class decade reunions.
