Texas Delta brothers Drew Benson (previous chapter president) and Chad Solomon were recently named recipients of the A. Kenneth Pye Outstanding Greek Leader Award at the Southern Methodist University Hilltop Excellence Award Banquet. The award is given to only six members of the Greek community at SMU that serve as exceptional leaders within the fraternity and sorority community.
The A. Kenneth Pye Award was first awarded in 1996 to recognize students with an outstanding balance of scholarship, community involvement, campus involvement, and a personal commitment to the ideals in their fraternity and sorority rituals. The award is named in honor of one of SMU’s finest past presidents, A. Kenneth Pye. President Pye was an advocate for students, and had a strong belief in the value of student leadership at SMU. It was during Dr. Pye’s term of office that a student representative was added to the Board of Trustees. A maximum of six students may receive the award each year.
