Pi Kappa Alpha President: Lucas DeLano
"Hi my name is Lucas Delano and I am the president of the Pi Kappa Alpha Eta Tau Chapter. I am a junior at APSU majoring in Communications with a focus in Journalism. I am also double minoring in Creative Writing and History. I chose to run for the presidency within my chapter because I saw the opportunity to change the way that our chapter operates internally. I have focused on the promotion of brotherly love amongst our chapter members and I believe our brotherhood has never been stronger. I hope to work with other chapters in Greek Life to promote this mindset within the community and the other chapters."
