    The Missouri State Phi Delt chapter has received two awards from General Headquarters this summer. Missouri Epsilon was one of 32 chapters in the country to earn the Hayward S. Biggers Ritual Award which is awarded to the chapters that demonstrate quality ritual performance in accordance with the laws of the Fraternity.

    We were also one of 32 chapters in the country to earn the Community Service Citation, which is awarded to those chapters that are involved within their communities as volunteers and philanthropists. Community service hours, money raised for philanthropy, and scope of the projects are all factors in determining the winners of this award.
