and through your hard work you’ve made real connections with the community.”

the awards ceremony. “Each year, our fraternities and sororities are given standards

Lindgren presented seven Greek organizations with the Chapter of Superior Achievement
award, the highest honor that can be awarded to a chapter at Randolph-Macon College:
Kappa Alpha Order, Kappa Sigma, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Alpha Gamma Delta, Delta Zeta,
Kappa Alpha Theta and Phi Mu. “I am very pleased that so many of our chapters put
