Eta Pi Chapter celebrates life of founding brother Chad Beaty

The brothers met at the brick dedicated to Chad Michael Beaty on Prince Lawn and the service proceeded to the Chad Michael Beaty memorial bell. The chapter ended at Chads grave in The Memorial Cemetery.

After CCU separated from USC in 1993, Chad Beaty saw his opportunity and with the help of eight other gentlemen, Chad as archon created an associate chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. After Chads death on February 9, 1995 caused by an automobile accident, the chapter continued on to be awarded a charter by the national organization of Pi Kappa Phi under the designation Eta Pi. The brothers of the Eta Pi Chapter later made a motion with the national office to honor Chad Michael Beaty as the founder of the Eta Pi Chapter and as the 124th initiate. This motion was approved. The impact that Chad Michael Beaty has made will never be forgotten, as his vision of brotherhood lives every day through the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi at Coastal Carolina University.
