Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc. has announced that Anderson Brown ’13 of North Chesterfield, Virginia has been awarded membership in the Alpha Chapter Affiliate Program for the 2012-2013 academic year.

In addition to his involvement in the chapter, Brown was the InterFraternity Council Vice President for Standards, Student Government Treasurer and Senator, and Psi Chi Vice President and Treasurer. He was named Greek Man of the Year in 2012 and was able to accept a Rock Chapter Award on behalf of the Iota Beta Chapter. Each academic year, up to 10 outstanding graduating seniors are awarded membership into Sigma Nu’s prestigious Alpha Chapter Affiliate Program, one of the highest honors the Fraternity can bestow upon a member. Selection is based on evidence of each applicant’s living an honorable life by upholding the ideals of Sigma Nu, as well as demonstrated leadership in contributing to the progress and development of the applicant’s chapter, fraternity, school, state and nation. Sigma Nu commended Brown for his achievements: “The Fraternity wishes to salute Andy as a rare and uncommon Knight who exemplified excellence in his daily life as shown by his commitment to the ideals of the Legion of Honor. His performance on behalf of his chapter at Virginia Wesleyan, and the General Fraternity, is a worthy example or model for others to follow.” Brown intends to pursue a Ph.D. in psychology and work in a therapeutic setting.
