RUSSELLVILLE, AR - On Friday, October 13, Mu Sigma chapter at Arkansas Tech University was chartered. The chapter installed 63 Founding Fathers and became a newly recognized chapter at Arkansas Tech University.

The expansion effort was overseen by expansion consultants Logan Seger and Trey Gibeault. The two spent six weeks in Russellville, Arkansas establishing Pi Kappa Alpha at Arkansas Tech.

The colony chartered as the largest fraternity on campus in just two years with an impressive list of accomplishments such as: Zeta Tau Alpha King of the Crown, Turtle Bowl Champions, and raising over $2,000 for Taylor Trudeau Cycle for Life and local firemen. They also hold several positions on campus including: Order of Omega, SGA, SAAC, student orientation leaders, student ambassadors, and having 11 varsity athletes.

On October 13, 63 colony members were initiated by Epsilon Omega (East Central University), with help from International Fraternity representatives including Director of Expansion, Graham Jewell (Rockhurst, Kappa Epsilon '13) and Director of Educational Content and Strategy, Jarrett Way (North Texas, Epsilon Delta '13).

The Chapter Installation in Russellville was followed by a banquet in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This banquet was attended by chapter members, their dates, parents and alumni.

Chapter Advisor, Bill Byrd, (Arkansas State, Delta Theta '82), began the program by encouraging brothers to build better relationships with the Greek community. He challenged brothers to not only strive to be the best on campus, but to be one of the best chapters of Pi Kappa Alpha in the nation.

The following awards were given to members during the presentation:
Scholar of the Year - Tyler Graham
Leader of the Year - Mason Cline
Athlete of the Year - Cole Fritschen
Gentleman of the Year - Will Anderson
Best New Member - Rugby Young

Chapter President, Mason Cline, concluded the ceremony by highlighting key points from colony's past to the Chapter's future. He challenged his brothers to set the bar high for Mu Sigma Chapter so their legacy will not be forgotten.
