MEMPHIS, TN - The Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity awarded the Chapter Advisor of the Year Award to Mark Reavis (Tennessee Tech, Theta Upsilon ’81) at the 2018 International Convention in Richmond, Virginia. The Chapter Advisor of the Year Award is presented annually to one Fraternity volunteer who has been nominated by his peers and undergraduates as the top advisor to a collegiate chapter.
As chapter advisor, Reavis serves as a direct resource to the chapter president and mentor to chapter members. He maintains communication with other local and regional volunteers, the International Fraternity, and attends PIKE University leadership events to attain more volunteer training. Reavis has been volunteering for Theta Pi Chapter at the University of Alabama in Huntsville for 12 years and has been the accredited chapter advisor since 2006.
In addition to serving on the alumni advisory board, Reavis has also served the house corporation as vice president. Reavis answers the call of the undergraduates to serve as a mentor and friend. Reavis is supportive of the PIKE Foundation by being a member of the Sabre & Key Society.
“The Theta Pi Chapter, and Pi Kappa Alpha as a whole, is immeasurably better off with Mark’s involvement at the local level,” said Pi Kappa Alpha Director of Alumni Engagement Michael Riedl (Kansas, Beta Gamma ’16). “Mark consistently steps up to champion the positive undergraduate experience, support Fraternity initiatives, and help the chapter however they need. Mark is a tremendous role model for all volunteers in Pi Kappa Alpha”
In his professional life, Reavis is a senior program analyst for Intuitive Research and Technology Corporation in Huntsville, Alabama, and serves as the vice president of finance for the University of Alabama in Huntsville's Alumni Association.
The Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity is proud to honor Brother Reavis with the 2018 Chapter Advisor of the Year Award.
