Zach Prager (T, 12), former president of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity chapter at Duke, received the Robertson Outstanding Undergraduate award, the order's highest award. Prager, who was noted for his work in risk management, anti-hazing efforts, his IFC leadership and many other accomplishments while on campus, said that being president of his chapter while at Duke was "without a doubt the greatest experience of my life."
During his acceptance speech at the PIKE 68th International Convention said that looking back on his chapter presidency, he realized that he had switched from focusing on himself, to focusing on others. "Being president of my chapter was not about meâ¦but about everyone around me."
Prager admitted he was jealous of those still in school, for the opportunity that lay before them. "I want to challenge all of you in this room to step outside your comfort zone and get involved."
