ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — The North-American Interfraternity Conference recently honored Winthrop University's Pi Kappa Phi organization as one of seven fraternities in the nation that exemplified the highest levels of excellence in leadership, service and education.

The fraternity's Epsilon Eta Chapter at Winthrop was recognized with a Chapter Award of Distinction due to its success as a high functioning fraternity in compliance with the conference's standards. Members also sought to educate others about the benefits of a values-based fraternity experience and worked to maintain a healthy relationship with the international organization.

Sarah Pankratz, Winthrop's assistant director of student activities for fraternity & sorority affairs, called the achievement an outstanding accomplishment for a chapter at a university of Winthrop's size.

"This chapter is a prime example of the type of fraternity/sorority experience we encourage our students to create here at Winthrop," Pankratz said. "I am proud to work with these students. I am thrilled that they are being recognized for all that they do in adding value to the Winthrop experience and the fraternal movement."

She continued that the Pi Kappa Phi members always go above and beyond in community involvement, recruitment, collaboration, support for other organizations, campus leadership and overall operations. "The Epsilon Eta Chapter sets the standard of what is truly means to be a fraternity man," Pankratz said.
