Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity member Jonatan Jimenez has been named 2022 ‘Mister NSU,’ the highest honor a Northwestern State University student can receive. Jimenez, along with ‘Ms. NSU,’ Morgan “Meaux” Landry, were selected by the student body as part of a continuing tradition dating back to 1956.
The Student Government Association holds elections for the honor each fall semester, with Mr. and Ms. NSU being presented at a home football game. These two outstanding students can be seen at other campus events and activities throughout the year. They were recognized Saturday during NSU’s Homecoming festivities.
Jimenez is the son of Roberto Jimenez and Ana Damian. He is a senior biology major with a biomedical concentration and a minor in chemistry.
Jimenez is the secretary and past historian of Pi Kappa Phi, current treasurer and past senator-at-large for the Student Government Association, member of Tri Beta, Helping Hands, Order of Omega, African American Caucus, a member of Alpha Epsilon Delta, and the Demon Dental Society.
He is an alumnus of the President’s Leadership Program. Jimenez is also a recipient of the David D. Morgan Extra Mile Scholarship and David D. Morgan First Generation Scholarship.
Jimenez joins four other Pi Kappa Phi initiates as recipients of the ‘Mr. NSU’ honor: Char Wilson in 2019, Jake Bryan in 2012, Roland McKneely, Jr. in 1961, and L.C. Cathey in 1960.
Landry also happens to be Beta Omicron Chapter’s current Rose Queen.
