On May 8, at Special Olympics weekly softball practice, the brothers of Phi Sigma Kappa Epsilon Hexaton of Virginia Tech presented NRV Special Olympics with a donation of $6,700. Accepting the donation was Erika Bookout, a Special Olympics Global Messenger. Kyle Meyerhoff, philanthropy coordinator for Phi Sig presented the check. He was accompanied by Doug Brainard, president, and fraternity brothers Kyle Donovan, Anthony Berlenback, and Tommy Saunders.
Phi Sig raised the money during “Phi Sig Olympics,” a week-long philanthropy event.
