Pike University Scholarships

The weekend of November 11-13, Pike University will be held in Kansas City, MO. Mike Pearson stepped up and sponsored the first scholarship to Pike U. and challenged other alumni to follow suit. These efforts have produced 19 scholarships/attendees of ZX to this weekend’s event. Pike U is a professional showcase which only will benefit our colony members. This is a tremendous accomplishment started by Mike and supported by alumni. Congratulations gentlemen, nicely done.

Kim Hancock Letter

Gentlemen-

I wanted to share a letter I received from Kim Hancock, the first recipient of the Colonel Edgar Baxter Award. Kim clearly went above and beyond to restore our 1940 Ford fire truck. The photo he is referring to is the one attached in my last email. Thanks again Kim and Congratulations on the Baxter award!

Annual Meeting & Homecoming Update

Our Annual Meeting/Homecoming/Poker Night was held over the weekend. A tremendous success, and thanks to all for attending and contributing. The first ever Colonel Edgar Baxter award was presented to Kim Hancock for his efforts in restoring the fire truck. The Baxter award is our highest honor given out to an alumnus and will be presented when someone goes above and beyond the call of duty. An additional award was presented also and will be given out annually. To say it was a surprise is an understatement. It was/will be given for Outstanding Alumni Service, it is called the Jim Roebuck Award.

In a previous email, Mike Pierson challenged alumni to sponsor a $105 early registration scholarship for members of ZX to attend Pike University to be held in Kansas City. With Mike’s leadership alumni contributed 10 scholarships Saturday night!!! Those sponsors are:

Jim Holt (2)

Brent Kuenzel
Kevin Green
Dave Krough

There is still time for others to take part of the $105 early registration (after November 5th the cost is $135). Pike U is the best training available for our guys. Those interested in contributing to Mike’s challenge need to send a check-made out to Pi Kappa Alpha, memo line write ZX Pike U, for $105.00, send to me at 1638 S.
