The Kappa Delta Chapter at Florida Atlantic University has continued to achieve individual and chapter successes this semester following the two awards they received at Pi Kapp College for Chapter Officers in January.
The chapter was recently recognized for their fundraising efforts as a participant in The Ability Experience’s March Mayhem competition. The chapter, which has already raised more than $6,000 for The Ability Experience this year, was named Southeast Regional Champions before being edged out by the eventual champion, the Kappa Zeta Chapter at Maine, in the Final Four. In 2019, the chapter raised a total of $41,000 for philanthropic causes, which was a fourth of all fundraising done by Florida Atlantic University’s 28 fraternities and sororities. The chapter was also awarded Florida Atlantic University’s Brotherhood Event of the Year Award.
Individually, two members of the Kappa Delta Chapter have been recognized for their contributions to the their campus and their Greek community. Luke Turner was named Fraternity Scholar of the Year and was admitted into Florida Atlantic University’s Greek Hall of Fame.
“This moment sums up my entire collegiate experience,” Turner said. “To everyone I have met along this journey — my professors, advisors, fraternity brothers and friends who have made an impact shaping me into a more responsible citizen, leader and listener, I am forever grateful.”
Additionally, Jonathan Schantz was recognized as Florida Atlantic University’s Greek Man of the year for 2019. Schantz, who has served as his chapter’s Warden and Archon, was also recently named as an Outstanding Philanthropy Chairman award recipient at Pi Kapp College for Chapter Officers in Atlanta.
“My advice to any owls reading this, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take,” Schantz said. “Four years go by fast, make the most of it. Most importantly stay safe.”
