Sigma Chi International Headquarters welcomed Reece Schenkenfelder, WESTERN KENTUCKY 2010, to staff while at the same time bidding farewell to Brandon Puzzo, FLORIDA SOUTHERN 2011.
Schenkenfelder, a Headquarters intern in 2009 and 2010, will be taking over the position of alumni and volunteer services coordinator last occupied by Puzzo, who joined the admissions department at Florida Southern College as a director of admissions.
Schenkenfelder will assume his position Oct. 9, 2012.
“We are very excited to welcome Reece to staff, especially because we know the potential and talent he brings to his position after he interned for Headquarters in 2009,” says Operations Manager Michael Church, ILLINOIS 2005. “At the same time, we thank Brandon for his hard work here on staff, and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors at Florida Southern.”
Serving in many roles, Schenkenfelder’s first position in Sigma Chi was pledge class president, which motivated and catapulted him into other leadership roles including: Chapter editor, Tribune, risk manager and Consul.
During his undergraduate years with Sigma Chi, he attended Horizons (2007), Balfour Leadership Training Workshop (2007 to 2010), and was later appointed as a member of the Peterson Significant Chapter Award International Review Committee (2010).
Schenkenfelder was involved in several organizations on campus, ranging from vice president of recruitment for the Interfraternity Council to serving on the Up ‘Til Dawn executive committee. He studied abroad in Spain (2009) and Egypt (2010).
Upon graduating in 2010 with a degree in marketing with a concentration in sales, Schenkenfelder moved to south central China, where he lectured and advised at Central South University in Hunan Province for two years.
As the alumni and volunteer services coordinator, he plans to work hand-in-hand with alumni and volunteers while motivating those who are trying get back involved with Sigma Chi. He will also be seeking out new ways to increase alumni involvement at the chapter, provincial and international levels.
