MEMPHIS, TN - Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity is pleased to Shayne Arriola (University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Gamma Beta ‘14) as the November 2017 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.

Arriola, a senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was nominated for demonstrating superior leadership in his chapter, on campus, and in the community.

Arriola is very active on and off campus and has held many offices in campus activities such as the Director of Risk for IFC, Vice President of the Nebraska Student Union Advisory Board and is VP Of Member Development of the Student Alumni Association. Along with these offices, he also participates in the National Senior Honorary Society, Order of Omega Greek Honor Society and the UNL Advisory Board.
