Mary Cutright, of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, received the Undergraduate Sorority Member of the Year award, Quinton Dussett, of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, received the Undergraduate Fraternity Member of the Year award, and Kedrick Nicholas, assistant dean of student services, was named Advisor of the Year.
"The McNeese NPHC did a fantastic job of representing our university at the convention not only by winning the awards, but also being active participants in convention activities," said Nicholas. "Several of the council members spoke during the undergraduate luncheon and volunteered as coordinators for other programs during the conference."
Other McNeese students attending were: Carl Taylor III, Iota Phi Theta Fraternity; Andre' Mitchell, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity; Lemontre' Woods, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity; Rickeisha Newton, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority; and Jessica White, graduate assistant in the McNeese Leadership Office.
The NPHC serves as a unified body for the nine historically African American Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities, according to Nicholas. There are 210 active local councils nation-wide including 108 alumni councils and 102 collegiate councils.
