    425 Downtown
    A fun-filled Saturday evening is in store as we commence with the annual Founder’s Day Banquet at 425 Downtown, a new banquet hall located off Walnut in downtown Springfield.

    As always this is a great event for family and friends to get together and applaud this highly motivated chapter.

    Brother Eric Westacott will keynote this event. Eric is a Missouri State Phi and St. Louis native. You may remember Eric’s story featured on the cover of the Scroll in 2002 where he shared a story of determination and achievement. Eric is a tremendous Phi Delt and we hope you all take this opportunity to hear his story in person. We’ll also be honoring Silver Legionnaires for those initiated in 1989 (or earlier) and presenting Travis Webb with his chapter room dedication and Dale Ribble with the basketball court dedication. A live and silent auction will take place. Tickets are $45.

    MO EP Benefits ALS Through Soccer

    Our Chapter Over the September 14th weekend Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Kappa held their annual soccer tournament in support of philanthropic efforts. The tournament generated over $1,200 dollars to be split among the two chapters, each being able to donate $600 to their national philanthropy. Additionally, through the hard work of Ryan Jones – Community Service Chairman – and generous donations parents and fans in attendance, the chapter raised an additional $200. Phi Delta Theta will present a check for $800 to the ALS Association on September 29th during the annual Springfield Walk.

    The soccer tournament was once again a success as the hard work and organization of the event led to 63 hours of recorded community service for the Brothers. Additionally, the tournament had 14 Fraternities and 4 Sororities compete to take home the gold. Phi Delt fell just short has they lost in the semi-finals by 1 goal leading them to take 3rd place among the men’s bracket. More importantly, however, the chapter acknowledged that the real winners are the ALS Association and those affected by Lou Gehrig’s disease. Lastly, despite falling just short of their goal to win the tournament, the brothers still had a fantastic and enjoyable experience and look forward to the Spring soccer season when the can claim redemption.

    Annual Tournament to Benefit Foundation

    2012 Eric Westacott TournamentRecently, Missouri Epsilon undergraduate and alumni Phis took part in the annual Eric Westacott Foundation Golf Tournament. The Eric Westacott golf classic benefits both a deserving St. Louis individual who has been affected by a spinal cord injury and one of our own brothers, Eric Westacott.

    This year’s tournament benefited Officer Michael Vernon of the Florrisant, Missouri police department. Officer Vernon was injured in the line of duty when he was shot and the bullet lodged into his spinal cord. The tournament was able to raise and donate over $10,000 to Officer Vernon as he works towards recovery.

    Phi Delt Blood DriveRecently, the active Brothers gathered to take part in a great cause and did more than their fair share.

    The Brothers participated in the annual MSU blood drive and were the premier fraternity for the event. Brothers from all classes stepped up to do their part to help the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks collect almost 1,000 pints of blood.


    The Brothers were the spotlight Fraternity during the event as they not only had 31 Brothers donate blood, but, had 38 Brothers donate their time to pass out flyers, hang posters, recruit donors, and set-up/clean-up the event each day. Through their efforts the chapter not only collected almost 100 hours of community service but they helped to save nearly 3,000 lives because each pint of blood is estimated to save 3 lives.


    The effort of the chapter and the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is truly remarkable considering the impact that this makes on so many lives. After learning that blood lasts only 40 days, due to an expiration date, the Brothers reiterated their pleasure in assisting such a great organization and look forward to helping again next year.

    Chapter Walks in Honor of Brother Gehrig

    Sep 6, 2012

    Our Chapter On September 29, 2012 the brothers of MO EP walked alongside the ALS Association in memory of Brother Lou Gehrig and all those affected by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The annual walk is an effort to raise awareness of ALS and funds for research, cures, and assistance to those already affected by this tragic disease.

    This year the brothers had a goal of raising $2,500, however, they went above and beyond, exceeding that goal and raising a total of $2,860! A big thanks is extended to the family of Brother Jordan Tierney, as they generously donated $1,000. Collectively, the chapter held their annual soccer tournament with the ladies of Sigma Kappa, which was the major fundraiser for the team. Moreover, the chapter showed impressive support by having 58 members register online, 48 of those members place donations, 6 clean-up volunteers, and 40 walkers.

    This year’s Keith Worthington chapter of ALS had a fundraising goal of $90,000, although with the support of chapters like Missouri Epsilon (who was the 8th highest contributing team) they set a new donation record, exceeding $120,000. Moreover, the Springfield ALS Association instituted a new Greek challenge to the chapters of Missouri State University. Needless to say Phi Delts once again took home the first annual Springfield area ALS Association trophy as they beat out Pi Kappa Alpha. The chapter will be recognized at an awards banquet in November.

    The Brothers hard work really paid off as they contributed 58 hours of community service, but more importantly, helped out a great cause that is near and dear to every Phi.

    After a revamped and revitalized recruitment process, Missouri Epsilon saw significant growth in not only numbers, but in the quality and character of the young men now regarded as Phikeia’s. Missouri Epsilon recruited and signed 28 Phikeia’s hailing from cities across Missouri, from St. Louis to Kansas City. While Missouri Epsilons recruitment class is slightly smaller than other Fraternities at Missouri State University, the character and nature of the young men is by far number one.

    One of the keys to recruitment this year was the chapters impressive rush video, available below. Missouri Epsilon looks to continue their recent growth overall through the future leadership of these young men.

    Why Join Phi Delt?

    We enjoy life by the help and society of others. Each member joins for their own personal reasons, but each shares the same network of over 167,000 Phi Delts across the country.

    Work hard, play hard. Our organization recognizes hard work with nearly $500,000 in scholarships awarded by our International Educational Foundation.

    Just as we pledge to better ourselves, we pledge to better our community. Our chapter raised over $2000 to help fight ALS Lou Gehrig’s Disease last year.

    If you are interested in joining a Fraternity, take a look through our F.A.Q. page, give us a call, or speak with a representative from the Greek Life office.
