Eta Kappa Chapter rechartered at SUNY – Plattsburgh

The chapter was installed by National Historian Frank T. Wrenn III, Mu (Duke), and Tony Noce, Alpha Upsilon (Drexel), respectively. The 30 refounding fathers were initiated into Pi Kappa Phi by the men of Theta Omega (Binghamton) and Iota Lambda (Quinnipiac). Eta Kappa’s Chapter Advisor, Dr. Edward J. Miller was initiated as an alumnus as well.

Representing the national fraternity at the chapter’s chartering banquet were Leadership Consultant Erik Cote, Iota Lambda (Quinnipiac), and Director of Chapter Development Scott Leighty, Epsilon Alpha (Elon). Members of the SUNY Ð Plattsburgh community in attendance included Vice President for Student Affairs Brian Hartman, Director of Fraternity & Sorority Life Allison Swick-Duttine as well as representatives from the Interfraternity Council and Pan-Hellenic Council.

During his keynote address, National Historian Frank Wrenn reminded the men to be proud of the company they keep. He challenged them to recruit men who they will be proud to call a brother years down the road. Brother Wrenn noted that the refounding fathers of Eta Kappa make him proud to be in their company.

While accepting the chapter’s charter, Archon Mike McKenna thanked all of the refounding fathers for their hard work and diligence over the past year to achieve this milestone. He noted that the real work of sustaining their success is only beginning and that he cannot wait to embrace the challenge. The chapter also recognized the men of Theta Omega Chapter and Iota Lambda Chapter for their Ritual of Initiation efforts.
