Each quarter, the Fraternity honors one or more of its brothers with the Mark V, Anderson Character-in-Action™ Leadership Award. Endowed by a grant from the Krach Family Foundation and featured in each issue of The Magazine of Sigma Chi, the award recognizes those Sigs who display good character and lead through integrity by donating their time and energy to a worthy cause.
The application deadline operates on a rolling basis; however, nominees must be Sigma Chis, and recognition should be for an action or deed — rather than for a monetary donation — that leads to the betterment or support of the community, not the advancement of the Fraternity.
Recent winners include Russell Bryant, FLORIDA STATE 1962, who organized a large-scale cleaning effort of the Wekiwa Springs in Orlando, Fla., and Tyler Wright, CENTRAL FLORIDA 2015, who organized a fundraising and clothing collection blitz to assist hurricane victims in his hometown of Pensacola, Fla.
To nominate a brother, send a message to character@sigmachi.org that includes his name, undergraduate university and graduation year, as well as answers to the following questions:
What is the community service for which the brother is being nominated?
How and why did he begin such volunteer work?
How long has he been involved in these activities?
What percentage of the brother’s work was completed on a volunteer basis?
How would you describe the nominee to others? What traits does he possess that make him a man of good character?
For how long have you known the brother?
