Kenneth Novak, Stetson University, Delta Upsilon '17, December 2018 Pike of the Month

MEMPHIS, TN - Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity is pleased to announce Kenneth Novak (Stetson, Delta Upsilon ’15) as the December 2018 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.

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

During Novak’s sophomore year, his best friend and member class brother died by suicide. To preserve his memory within the chapter, Novak worked with his brothers to create Gainz for Dane, a philanthropic event for suicide awareness. The event consists of an Army-inspired obstacle course to honor Dane’s ROTC involvement and benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Novak also worked with his brothers to dedicate a portion of the chapter room to Dane’s memory, including his framed intramural jersey.

As internal vice president, he led the chapter to utilize new fundraising opportunities that led them to raise $4,000 from a single event. He has worked to strengthen alumni relations by attending local alumni dinners and encouraging undergraduate brothers to join him.

He has served his chapter as internal vice president, recruitment chairman, alumni chair, member class president, and as a member of the judicial board. He is PIKE U Gold Certified.

On campus, he is a member of the chess club and philosopher club. He has also served as a resident assistant.

Novak will graduate with a degree in mathematics with plans to pursue a career as a financial advisor.
