Greek Brief: Alpha Delta Pi sorority wins big at Greek Excellence Awards

The Alpha Delta Pi sorority will need to make more room in their trophy case after taking home the majority of awards last week at the fourth annual Greek Excellence Awards ceremony.

The Greek Excellence Awards recognize individuals involved in Greek-letter life who have been strong members of their organization, as well as various exceptional fraternity and sorority chapters.

Alpha Delta Pi received the Greek Unity Award, the Gold Chapter Award and the Overall Academic Excellence Award. Jacq Hackett, a member of Alpha Delta Pi, is also one of the four finalists vying to win the Greek Woman of the Year award. The University will announce the winner at the University-wide Excellence Awards on Wednesday.

Sarah Sutton, president of Alpha Delta Pi, said the awards reflect the girls’ hard work and that she was proud of Hackett’s commitment to Alpha Delta Pi.

“Something we’re very proud of is winning the Gold Award every year that they’ve had it,” Sutton said. “Jacq has really given it her all and we’ve all got our fingers crossed.”

Dean Harwood, director of Greek Life, also complimented Alpha Delta Pi’s hard work.

“Their grades are phenomenal,” he said. “They do great and have for quite a while.”

The University also awarded the Gold Chapter Award to nine other Greek-letter organizations, and the Overall Academic Excellence award to Alpha Epsilon Pi, Kappa Sigma and Pi Kappa Phi.

Recipients of the Greek Excellence Awards are selected by a committee that includes staff from the Office of Greek Life. Contenders either submit an application on behalf of an individual or a binder which contains the Greek-letter organization’s summary of activities.
