Earning a 4.0 in a semester is an achievement that deserves recognition. For members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter at UT Martin, part of that recognition comes in the form of a free steak dinner for him and a guest sponsored by our alumni.
Parker Brogdon (2023) and Chapter President Jason Repath (2021) were honored this past Wednesday for their academic achievements. Brogdon is a freshman Pre-Veterinary Medicine major from Gadsen, Tennessee, while Repath is a Political Science major from White House, Tennessee.
Joining the two men for dinner were their invited guests along with Chapter Counselor D. Renard Miles, II (Memphis-Lambuth 2015) and Faculty Fellows Dr. Adan Bruner and John Abel (2000).
“John, Dr. Bruner, and I were elated to celebrate Jason and Parker’s academic achievements from the Fall 2019 semester,” Miles said.
The Tennessee Kappa Alumni & Volunteer Corp. sponsored the dinner as a way of supporting chapter members’ pursuit of academic excellence.
The concept of alumni hosting a steak dinner for members who earn a 4.0 for the semester is one borrowed from the SigEp chapter at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
The UT Martin chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon’s GPA led all fraternities on campus in 2019, demonstrating a commitment to the Sound Mind ideal.
