Epsilon Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau Named to National "Founder's Four"
June 19, 2017
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The Epsilon chapter of Phi Kappa Tau at the University of Mount Union was recently selected to be a "Founders Four" chapter and will compete for the Roland Maxwell Trophy, the highest award a chapter can receive.
The Epsilon chapter and three other chapters of Phi Kappa Tau will travel to Oxford, Ohio on July 14 – 16 where they will give a 15 minute presentation on why they should receive the Roland Maxwell Trophy which is given to the most outstanding chapter of Phi Kappa Tau. Brothers will be competing with Case Western Reserve University, University of Louisville, and Nebraska Wesleyan University. There are only four chapters selected out of 86 active chapters nationwide.
Last year, five brothers traveled to Sacramento, California where they presented for the award, but did not receive it. In 2014, the Epsilon chapter of Phi Kappa Tau received the Maxwell Trophy and brothers hope to bring it home again.
Epsilon President Mike Sovak '18 said, “Our recent nominations to Founders Four are encouraging and humbling accolades. It speaks to the amount of impact we can have as a dedicated fraternity on a campus which embraces us.”
