Pi Kappa Phi Announces 2023 Mr. Pi Kappa Phi Honoree

Pi Kappa Phi has named Dudley Woody, Xi (Roanoke), as Mr. Pi Kappa Phi 2023.

As an undergraduate, Woody served as archon of Xi Chapter and went on to serve the greater Fraternity in a variety of roles. He first joined The Ability Experience Board of Directors in 1989 and eventually served as president of the board from 1997-98.

He was elected to National Council in 1998, serving as national chancellor from 1998-2000 and again from 2002-08. He served as national treasurer from 2008-10, national vice president from 2010-12 and national president from 2012-14.

Woody has served on a variety of committees including the Foundation Committee for the Centennial Commission Gift in 2004 and is currently a member of the Individual and Chapter Conduct Committee. A Nu Phi member since 1996, Woody received the Merit Citation in 1998. In addition to his current committee, service, he has been a Foundation trustee since 2018.

In 2022, Woody cycled in Gear Up Florida and was the top fundraiser for the event that year eclipsing the record for most funds raised in the event’s history.

As National President James Smith shared about Woody’s selection as Mr. Pi Kappa Phi, “It was an obvious choice. When a brother of a certain age rides a bike across the state of Florida with a bunch of college men and the result is those young men calling him ‘Studley,’ how can he not be Mr. Pi Kappa Phi?”

Please join Pi Kappa Phi in congratulating Dudley Woody for being named the highest and most prestigious honor of the fraternity: Mr. Pi Kappa Phi.

If you would like to join us in celebrating Woody’s service to the Fraternity, please join us this summer at Pi Kapp Alumni Reunion in Philadelphia from July 27-30.
