Greek life advisor awarded

Contributing to over 23 student organizations that represent over 20 percent of the College’s students with distinction has landed Dave Conner, the College’s assistant director of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Phillipi Outstanding Advisor Award at the Northeast Greek Leadership Association.

According to the Northeast Greek Leadership Association, the award recognizes a Greek affairs professional who makes significant contributions to the Greek community within the Northeast region by advising any governing council.

Conner was nominated for the award by a group of the College’s fraternity and sorority members, according to the Office of the Dean of Students.

“Through his support in our leadership and development, his encouragement toward personal growth, his creativity, his intelligence and his acceptance of nothing less than the best, Dave has helped us to stay true to the principles that we are meant to live by as members of a long lasting and historic tradition,” said Monica Ross, a former officer of the Panhellenic Association executive council.

Dave Conner is a member of Theta Chi fraternity, and was honored earlier this academic year by students who established the David E. Conner Panhellenic Excellence Scholarship at the second annual President’s Ball, according to the College.
