Summers receives NIC Gold Medal
As one of the oldest traditions in the interfraternal world, the presentation of the NIC Gold Medal dates back more than 70 years. The Gold Medal is presented for lifelong service to the interfraternal community and is the highest honor that the NIC can bestow. The NIC is pleased to announce the presentation of two posthumous Gold Medals at the 2014 Annual Meeting.
Dr. Phillip M. Summers, Pi Kappa Phi: a life-long member with 55 years of dedication to the national organization. With a history that includes four terms on Pi Kappa Phi's National Council and one term as National President, Dr. Summers devoted his time to the success of the fraternity on multiple levels. Although he passed away in 2013, Dr. Summers is remembered for his time as President of Vincennes University where he mentored Sigma Pi's Alpha chapter. According to Pi Kappa Phi CEO, Mark Timmes, Dr. Summers is the epitome of a fraternity man who was "committed to a strong fraternity experience, visionary in his leadership, faithful in his spirituality and relationships, and a lifelong learner and teacher." The NIC is proud to recognize Dr. Phillip Summers as a 2014 Gold Medal recipient.
