The Kappa Beta chapter at Troy University took home the 2016 Top Chapter Award on Aug. 6 at the Final Awards Banquet of ATO’s 82nd Biennial Congress in Charlotte, N.C. The chapter also took home its ninth straight True Merit Bowl.
“It’s a huge honor,” said chapter president Blake Swicord, Troy ’14. “To have an opportunity to be at the tip of the spear is something that we are not going to take lightly. We are going to do the best we can for this next year.”
The chapter recruited more men than any other fraternity on campus last school year. It’s signature event, Walk Hard, also raised more than $24,000 for the Jeep Sullivan’s Outdoor Wounded Warriors Adventures.
Last October, the chapter also celebrated its 10-year anniversary with more than 50 alumni and guests in attendance.
