Sigma Phi Epsilon at UT Martin was named the 2019 – 2020 Chancellor’s Cup winner for the Interfraternity Council (IFC) at a virtual award ceremony Thursday night.
“The UT Martin Chancellor’s Cup seeks to recognize the achievement of fraternities and sororities in five different categories: scholarship, community service, intrafraternal relations, philanthropy and campus involvement,” UT Martin Chancellor Dr. Keith Carver said. “This year’s winners have shown themselves to the leaders of the fraternity and sorority community at the University of Tennessee at Martin.”
The chapter was also recognized for academic achievement and philanthropy giving, presented by Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Dr. Andy Lewter.
“One of the pillars of any fraternity and sorority is the ideal of scholarship,” Dr. Lewter said. “I’d like to congratulate [the awarded chapters] for the grades they’ve demonstrated this past year.”
SigEp led all UT Martin fraternities in grades in 2019, including a 3.16 GPA in the spring.
The chapter’s recent philanthropic efforts included raising $377 for the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” event and presenting a $1,192 check to the Special Olympics of Upper West Tennessee. The latter money was raised through a “change wars” campaign held in the University Center earlier this year.
