Seventy Four Undergraduate Scholarship Recipients Learned Valuable Lessons at the 56th General Assembly & Stead Leadership Seminar
By Neil Stanglein | Director of Annual Giving & Communications Programs, Educational Foundation
Generous donor support provided 74 scholarships for undergraduates at the 56th General Assembly & Stead Leadership Seminar held August 4–7, 2016 in Miami.
“Words cannot explain how thankful and grateful I am to be able to attend this seminar with all my brothers from across the country, said Carter Brouillette (Iowa State 2019). “Attending this seminar has helped me to grow as a Lambda Chi Alpha and as a man.”
The Educational Foundation awarded a total of $94,330 in scholarship and leadership awards for undergraduate brothers to attend General Assembly. Participants spent time in large group sessions learning from acclaimed speakers like Dr. Lori Hart, Josh Orendi and Suzette Walden Cole and were led in small groups by higher education professionals and alumni to learn about values-based recruitment, harm-reduction and how to have difficult conversations.
Alex Turner (Ohio State 2016) enjoyed learning about additional resources from International Headquarters that he did not know existed previously. He is also excited about instilling passion in all members of his chapter after attending General Assembly.
“The most amazing thing to me was seeing how passionate everybody, both undergraduate and alumni, were during General Assembly. People cared so much about the directions we take and changes we make… that was truly inspiring to me,” Turner said.
Carter and Alex are just two examples of donors’ dollars at work for Lambda Chi Alpha. Donors’ generous support allow our undergraduates to continue to exemplify Lambda Chi Alpha’s Seven Core Values: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Service & Stewardship, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage.
