National Awardees

Achievement in every field of human endeavor. Those words penned by our beloved Founders established the Fraternity's disposition among Greek-lettered organizations . Understanding that personal achievement is vital towards an individual's ability to positively promote the interest of mankind, the Fraternity bestows its highest honors on those who exemplify the virtues enumerated by Diggs, Lee, Armstrong, Grant, Alexander, Asher, Blakemore, Irvin, Caine and Edmonds.

The Middle Eastern Province is proud to recognize the following members for their stellar achievements and contributions, both to the Fraternity and the public.
