36 Years Since Graduation, 36 Gifts Made To Help Others

This week our blog series will feature a variety of Phi Delta Theta Foundation Donors, highlighting various categories and opportunities Phi Delta Theta has for members and alumni to give back.

Today, we feature Andy Harper, Indiana State ’73, and a 1972 Phi Delta Theta Foundation scholarship recipient. The scholarship awarded was created to reward those who displayed great amounts of leadership and encouraged good citizenship. Since receiving  the scholarship, Brother Harper has made consecutive annual donations in an effort to strengthen ties with the organization and inspire future giving.

Andy Harper shares his story:

“Being selected for membership in Phi Delta Theta was the first highlight of my college experience.  Then, two years later to be awarded the Foundation Scholarship from The Fraternity strengthened my bond and pride.  The scholarship was a real confidence booster for someone more involved in campus activities than scholarly practices and gave me encouragement to balance both.  This, combined with a strong brotherhood of best friends, helped produce memories that are still very much alive today.”

“After graduating, I never hesitated to contribute when requests came from the PDT Foundation.  I knew what that one-time scholarship did for me and would do for others.  It’s been 36 years now since graduating from Indiana State; I don’t think I’ve missed the opportunity to give back in any year since.”
