2016 Dr. Otto Sonder Chapter Advisor of The Year
Name: George Alexander
Chapter Designation: Beta Theta
College and Initiation: Rutgers '67
Alumni Positions: Pi Chapter - Grand Chapter Advisor
George Alexander has served as Grand Chapter Advisor for the Pi Chapter at the University of Colorado since 2011. As Grand Chapter Advisor, he built an active and engaged Chapter Council, is a positive presence at the chapter house, and attends Chapter Meetings on a weekly basis. Not only was this award winner nominated by his Chapter President, but 14 other members of the chapter submitted supporting documents.
One nominator said, “George is one of the most dedicated men I have met in my life. He plays an enormous role in the lives of all of our brothers. His words of wisdom at every chapter meeting always ring true and I would argue that he is one of the reasons our chapter has become so successful. When we succeed, he pushes us to do better, and when we struggle, he facilitates our success, not by telling us what to do, but rather giving us direction and the tools to succeed. As GCA he has helped us through our colonization, chartering and exponential growth. He has helped brothers struggling with alcohol abuse issues, brothers struggling with grades, and brothers working to adapt to college after military service. He does all of this with a fatherly demeanor. The Pi chapter brothers know that George has our back and is always there for us. Furthermore, George has never once missed a chapter meeting in the last 4 years, a Brotherhood education meeting since its start two years ago, Initiation or a Pledge Ceremony.”
