City of Painesville honors Pi-Chi Chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity


On Monday, April 18, the members of Kappa Sigma Fraternity’s Pi-Chi Chapter at Lake Erie College were recognized by a Proclamation from the City of Painesville for their volunteer work with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department. 

Presented by the City’s recreation coordinator Chris Mackar, the honor was received by Pi-Chi Chapter President Shavon Thompson ’16, alumnus Tyler Stotsky ’15 and Chapter Advisor David Brinkman at the City Council meeting held that evening.

The fraternity brothers from LEC regularly take part in the City’s Fall Festival, Egg Hunt and other larger scale events held for the Painesville community and are well deserving of this recognition.

Apart from their work with the City of Painesville, the members of Kappa Sigma recently hosted their fourth annual pancake breakfast fundraiser on April 2 at the First Church of Christ in Painesville. The proceeds from this event benefited the Greater Cleveland Fisher House Organization, an organization providing short-stay homes for veterans and their families who are seeking medical care.

The fraternity announced at their fundraiser that they’re working with the Kappa Sigma Chapters at The University of Akron and Kent State University to raise funds to build a Fisher House in the Cleveland area on the grounds of the Louis Stokes VA Hospital in Cleveland.
