Members of the IU Southeast Theta Kappa chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) recently attended a three-day conference with PIKE undergraduate officers from across the United States and Canada.

The annual PIKE University Chapter Executives Conference occurred from Thursday, Jan. 8 to Sunday, Jan. 11 at the historic Peabody Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. More than 500 PIKE members attended the conference.

The conference was divided into educational tracks for chapter presidents, treasurers and recruitment chairmen, and included a variety of sessions that focused on servant leadership, personal values and bystander intervention.

During the conference, the PIKE members toured St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where they listened to inspiring stories.

Two PIKE alumni members, Hjalma E. Johnson and D. Blain Claypool, spoke about leadership and life lessons at the beginning of the conference. The conference also featured remarks from Memphis, Tennessee mayor A C Wharton Jr. and Shelby County, Tennessee mayor Mark H. Luttrell Jr.

The Chapter Executives Conference is one of nine PIKE University events held annually across North America.

PIKE University includes all PIKE leadership programs and the PIKE educational curriculum. PIKE University’s mission is to develop and provide educational programs aimed at fostering leadership skills, management skills and personal development skills to prepare college men for success in life.
