I am so very honored to have been selected for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity’s inaugural ‘Thirty Under 30’ list, among a truly impressive group of young professionals. I’ve served as a volunteer for the organization since 2008, hoping to mentor emerging leaders during their collegiate experience. As a student, I was exposed to countless opportunities for leadership development and owe debt of gratitude to those who volunteered their time and talent to mentor me. I know several of the other recipients, so it’s a tremendous pleasure to be placed in such good company!
The ‘Thirty Under 30’ selection committee took the following criteria under consideration: the actions of each recipient reflect the values of the fraternity, especially leadership and/or service and the alumnus has distinguished himself in his career field or another demonstrable way which causes him to stand separate from his peers.
