Matt Roehrs, of Sedalia, was one of eight representatives from the Delta Omicron Chapter of the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity at Westminster College in Fulton to represent the chapter, which was honored as one of the top 10 chapters in the international fraternity.
Delta Omicron received the Hugh Shields Award for Chapter Excellence, which is the highest award a chapter can receive.
“We understand that a Hugh Shields Award is not won in a single year,” said chapter president Ryan Harrison. “Rather, it is the continuity of greatness, begun by our brothers long before us, which makes Delta Omicron worthy of these awards.”
The group attended the fraternity’s division conference Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 in Oklahoma City, Okla.
The chapter also received a multitude of other honors and recognitions at the conference.
Roehrs is a senior at Westminster.
