On Saturday, January 20th, we, the brothers of the KY-Eta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta, proudly initiated 29 outstanding young men from the Fall 2017 Phikeia class. Their class’s average GPA was a 3.36, the highest Phikeia class GPA since we were re-founded here at Western Kentucky University in 2014, and they raised a total of $1,662.50 to aid in the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease through the Iron Phi Phikeia Challenge. Brother Jeff Ranger, their Phikeia Educator, said the following about the group of young men he led through the Phikeia process: “I’m incredibly proud of the Fall ’17 class for initiating as Brothers in the Bond. They live out our three Cardinal Principles and exemplify what it means to be a Phi everyday. These men will lead and grow our brotherhood boldly and passionately, and KY-Eta’s future shines as bright as ever. Serving as their Phikeia Educator was one of the greatest joys of my life. This group taught me more about brotherhood than I thought was imaginable, and they will forever hold a special place in my heart.” With the addition of these 29 newly initiated brothers, KY-Eta now has 100 active members, and we are looking forward to increasing that number as we begin the Spring Rush process in the coming days. Go Tops, and Roll Phi!
