RATTI & WOLFE AWARDS AWARDED TO ETA CHAPTER

University of Illinois Chapter Wins Two National Awards

 

GREENSBURG, PA – The National Fraternity of Kappa Delta Rho is pleased to announce that the Eta Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champagne was awarded the Gino A. Ratti Award for outstanding alumni relations as well as the Donald C. Wolfe Award for outstanding chapter newsletter. The awards were presented on Sunday, August 11, at the Elmon M. Williams Leadership Academy in Pittsburg, PA. The Gino A. Ratti Award is given to the chapter that demonstrates the most consistent and effective engagement with their alumni members. The Donald C. Wolfe award is given to the chapter that submits the best alumni newsletter to the independent award selection committee of the National Fraternity.

 

The Eta Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champagne was founded in 1921. The awarding of both the Gino A. Ratti Award for outstanding alumni relations and the Donald C. Wolfe award for outstanding chapter newsletter to the chapter is a reflection of their hard work, commitment and dedication to the mission of Kappa Delta Rho to create a living organization that actively challenges each member to rise above everyday pursuits, be of character, and confront the needs of our modern society by placing honor before all things. The outstanding alumni relations award is named after one of the ten founding fathers of Kappa Delta Rho, Gino A. Ratti, who designed the Fraternity’s Coat of Arms and was known for his strong beliefs in fraternal ideals. The outstanding newsletter award is given in recognition of Donald C. Wolfe who graduated from Rho Chapter at Lafayette College and later served the fraternity as National Executive Secretary from 1952 to 1959.
