Hargear Award

The award is given annually to an undergraduate brother in recognition of contributions exemplifying the purpose and objective of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. This award is the highest recognition an undergraduate brother can receive over and above the Undergraduate Hall of Fame. The award was established by the Grand Council in 1977.

Frank Foli Hargear, UC Berkeley '16, Delta Beta Xi '39, served on the Grand Council as Grand Secretary 1937-40, as Grand Marshal 1950-58, and was the originator of the Delta Beta Xi Award for distinguished service to the Fraternity. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Award in 1965. Brother Hargear entered the Omega Chapter in 1982 at the age of 84. The past year's winner is listed below followed by a complete list of past winners.
