Deltasig Achievement Awards

December 18, 2012

Welcome back to Terminology Tuesday! Each Tuesday we will blog about a Fraternity term. It’s our hope that you take some time to read, laugh, smile, and share with others.

Deltasig of the Year was instituted in 1952 and evolved into the Career and Lifetime Achievement Awards in 1990. The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to a brother who exemplifies the spirit of the Fraternity through his or her lifetime of service, support, brotherhood, and involvement. The Career Achievement Award is presented to a brother who has distinguished himself/herself in his chosen field of business, government, or education, and through his/her accomplishments has furthered a higher standard of commercial ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of the community.

Walt Schratz, Pittsburgh, was the 2012 Career Achievement Honoree.  Brother Schratz has had a distinguished career in the business and academic worlds. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1954, he taught for twenty-five years (originally full-time which quickly became part-time) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Business where he was a faculty initiate into Lambda Chapter. Read more about Brother Schratz in the November DELTASIG.

Golden Council Member H. Nicholas Windeshausen, Nebraska-Lincoln, was the 2011 Lifetime Achievement Honoree. He has served the Fraternity for nearly 60 years and was recognized at the 2011 Grand Chapter Congress. Read more about Brother Windeshausen in the July 2011 DELTASIG.

Winners of these awards are honored during a special event; receive a plaque in recognition of his/her accomplishments; and are recognized in The DELTASIG.  See past award recipients on our website.

Nominations are due no later than January 2 (odd-numbered years for Lifetime Achievement and even-numbered years for Career Achievement). The National Scholastic Development and Awards Committee then selects two finalists from the pool of nominees. The Fraternity’s Board of Directors then chooses the recipient, if any, at their spring meeting.

Do you know someone worthy of this prestigious award?  Nominate them today!
