E.G. Lassiter ’69 and Justin Cooper ’17, were recognized at the Alpha Sigma Phi International Fraternity Elevate.
Lassiter was awarded Delta Beta XI, the oldest award the fraternity bestows. Delta Beta XI was established in 1938 to honor fraternity alumni for outstanding service to the fraternity. Recipients are judged by years of service, type of service, capital contribution, and significant achievements. All recipients must be out of school for at least 10 years, and they are selected by previous award recipients. Each year, up to 10 recipients can be selected for the ward.
Lassiter was initiated into the fraternity in 1968, and has since served the chapter at Presbyterian College, the fraternity on an international level, and has stayed involved with the College. He has served as a member of the Alpha Sigma Phi’s board of advisors since 2013 and served as director of the board since 2014.
Cooper was recognized as a member of the fraternity’s Undergraduate Hall of Fame. This recognition is typically for students of senior class standing who have performed outstanding contributions to their chapter, their campus, and the fraternity at large.
During his time, Cooper has held the positions of chapter president, family relations director, brotherhood retention director, and recruitment director. He has helped lead the chapter to the fraternity’s Most Improved Chapter Award in 2014 and the Grand Senior President’s Award in 2016. The Grand Senior President’s Award recognizes the top two chapters in Alpha Sigma Phi each year.
Cooper is currently a member of the fraternity staff where he serves as coordinator of chapter development.
