Kansas Epsilon (Emporia State) Places In Annual Step Show, Raises $2,450 For Local Agency



Phi Delta Theta competed in the Black Student Union’s 8th annual Halloween Spooktacular Step Show taking third place. The chapter entered in 2013 for the first time and remains the only ESU fraternity to compete. Zeta Phi Beta took first with Alpha Sigma Alpha in second place. Other sororities performing included Chi Omega, Sigma Sigma Sigma and La Esmeralda, a Latina interest group.

The Kansas Epsilon troop included Jordan Brink, chapter vice president, IFC president and choreographer, Cortez Gray, Phikeia Brandon Hespe, Miguel Alaniz and Matthew Gillett. The comedic routine featured elderly men entering the step competition.

The Emporia State Black Student Union Step Show encouraged food donations at the door for Abundant Harvest, an Emporia soup kitchen.

On October 17th and 18th during ESU Homecoming weekend, Kansas Epsilon conducted its 29th annual Pole-sit for SOS, Inc. at the intersection fronting Emporia State. The 30-hour boot drive generated $2,450 for the agency that serves and supports victims of sexual and domestic violence, child abuse and neglect. During the course of the 29 years, Kansas Epsilon has raised just over $75K for SOS, Inc. which serves a six county region.
