Sean Lorenz, (Rutgers, Alpha Psi '16) April 2019 Pike of the Month

MEMPHIS, TN - Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity is pleased to announce Sean Lorenz (Rutgers, Alpha Psi ’16) as the April 2019 Pike of the Month. Pike of the Month award recipients demonstrate the True Pike ideals, working to improve themselves and having a positive impact on their chapters, campuses, and communities.

Lorenz, a senior at Rutgers University, was nominated for demonstrating superior leadership in his chapter, on campus, and in the community.

He has served his chapter as executive vice president, community service chairman, fundraising chairman, and campus involvement chairman. As executive vice president, he led the chapter to raise over $40,000 for multiple organizations including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Dance Marathon, the Salvation Army, and the SOMOS Nicaragua Project. During his term, the chapter was recognized for completing the most community service hours of any Greek organization on campus.

Lorenz also organized the Grand Hope wheelchair basketball and rugby philanthropy event. Individuals were able to watch local wheelchair basketball and rugby players showcase their talents while also attempting to play wheelchair sports themselves. The event raised almost $11,000 for the Rutgers Spinal Cord Injury Project, a research effort to regenerate motor skills and reinstate the ability to walk in individuals with spinal cord injuries. Lorenz was recognized for the chapter’s work at the 33rd annual Vito Recine Spinal Cord Research Dinner held by the Central Jersey Spinal Cord Association.

On campus, he is the starting midfielder for the university’s club lacrosse team. He is a member of the Supply Chain Association and Institute of Supply Management. He has also participated in the university’s RU MUDDY run benefitting USAgain.

In the classroom, he maintains a 3.6 GPA. He is a six-time consecutive member of the Dean’s List.

On his time in in the chapter, Lorenz says, “PIKE has provided me the platform to drive change and make a positive impact on both the Rutgers community and the world at large by helping those in need and advancing spinal cord injury research. I am honored to be a member of this organization. I challenge other Pikes to also use this organization as the catalyst to make a difference on their campuses and in their communities.”

Lorenz will graduate Cum Laude this May with a degree in supply chain management before beginning his career as a demand analyst at Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries.
