This past semester has been extremely successful for the Florida Delta Chapter at the University of Miami. The chapter began the semester by recruiting the largest Phikeia class in the chapter’s history, numbering 25 new members. Not only was this their largest initiated class, but it was also the largest new member class on the University of Miami campus. Not long after, the chapter went on to win its third consecutive Greek Week while raising over $35,000 for United Cerebral Palsy.
As far as individual achievements, Florida Delta has excelled in this area as well. Brother Justin Goldsman was elected Chairman of the University of Miami’s Association of Greek Letter Organizations, an organization designed to oversee all of Greek Life. Brother Max Heckendorn was tapped into the national leadership honor society Omicron Delta Kappa. Brothers Justin Goldsman, Max Heckendorn, and Will Bryant were all tapped into the Order of Omega for being outstanding leaders and attaining a high level of academic success in the Greek community. Brothers Sal Maffei and Joe Marvin were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society as two of only thirty students at Miami who were given this honor.
The Florida Delta brothers finished the semester by taking home several awards from the Association of Greek Letter Organizations’ Awards Ceremony. The chapter received the following awards:
- Outstanding Chapter Community Service
- Most Outstanding Sophomore (Sam Becourtney)
- Order of Omega Leadership Award (Jonathan Weinerman)
- Deans Service Award (Justin Goldsman)
- Bill McCoy Scholarship for Outstanding Service and Leadership (Max Heckendorn)
This has been an amazing semester for the Florida Delta Chapter, and they hope to continue to see great success.
