On April 8, founding father and president of the Iowa Delta Colony at Drake University, Nicholas Baker was awarded the Outstanding Leadership Award from the Drake University College of Business and Public Administration.
The CBPA Outstanding Leadership Award is given to one male and one female student in each grade for their outstanding leadership during the 2014-2015 academic year. This award was presented in front of the entire college on April 8th during the CBPA Award Ceremony.
“I have been blessed with so many opportunities to refine my leadership skills, the pinnacle of which has been serving as the first president of Iowa Delta following our recent colonization. Thanks to Phi Delta Theta, not a day goes by where I don’t learn something new about leadership and how to be the best man that I can be. I look forward to even more learning experiences as we continues to grow, secure our chapter house and move closer to installation. I’m especially excited to see the impact that Phi Delta Theta has on the men of Iowa Delta.”
