Centre's Phi Kappa Tau chapter wins awards
DANVILLE, KY— Phi Kappa Tau's Delta chapter at Centre College recently received four awards at the fraternity's annual Leadership Academy in Oxford, Ohio.
Patrick Noltemeyer '01, associate dean and director of community service and Bonner Program, was awarded Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity's Outstanding Advisor to a Chapter Award. The award is presented annually to the chapter advisor who has demonstrated exemplary leadership qualities in relation to chapter involvement.
Noltemeyer initiated into Phi Kappa Tau in 1998 with the Delta chapter at Centre. He regularly attends chapter meetings, social and recruitment events; assists with event planning; meets with chapter officers; and maintains an open-door policy with all brothers.
Also receiving an award at the event was the Delta chapter's Board of Governors, which was awarded the fraternity's Board of Governors Award, presented annually to the BOG that makes an outstanding contribution to its chapter. Nominated by either the Executive Offices or chapter, up to three Board of Governors may receive this award. Each winner brings a wealth of knowledge and outstanding advisory support to their chapter.
Centre's Delta chapter was also awarded the fraternity's Roland Maxwell Trophy, presented annually to the most outstanding chapter in the fraternity.
The Community Service Award also went to the Delta chapter at Centre. This award is presented annually to the chapter with the most number of hours per member and the chapter that accumulates the greatest number of community service hours.
Delta chapter continues to lead by example. Their achievements include raising more than $24,000 for philanthropy, accumulating nearly 80 hours per man for community service and more than 5,000 community service hours.
The Delta chapter has made a commitment to always be "learning"—in an effort to avoid complacency—and to continually strive for excellence. The list of awards from this past year include Centre College's Fraternal Chapter of Excellence Award and multiple individual accomplishments, including Rotary, Goldwater and Rhodes scholarships.
Founded in 1906 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, Phi Kappa Tau is a collegiate fraternity that fosters three core ideals within its membership: learning, leading and serving.
