Qualification for this award still requires excellence in overall operations with slightly lower requirements needed in scholarship, chapter management, alumni relations, and community service.

    Phikeia Education PogramProgram and also
    The Pallas Committee should be made up of a Chairman, the Phikeia Educator, the Scholarship Chairman, a Junior or Senior member, and an Alumnus if possible. The format of each committee could vary from chapter to chapter.
    Pallas Committee meetings should be held in roundtable fashion to put the Phikeia at ease. The Phikeia should meet with the committee seperate from other Phikeia but his Big Brother should be present. This meeting is a chance for the committee to praise what the individual is doing well and address any areas of concern. There should also be time for the Phikeia to give feedback on the program and any issues that he is having with classwork, the Phikeia Program, and any problems with Phikeia brothers or active and alumni members.

    Two Washburn Phis kept the faith honorably serving as prisoners of war.
    LT Robert L. "Bob" Richmond, USAAF - As the co-pilot of a B-26 Marauder assigned to the 387th Bombardment Group {POW_Medal.jpg} The Prisoner of War MedalBrother Richmond was shot down over Germany on March 2, 1945. Three of the six members of his crew bailed out only to spend the remainder of World War II as prisoners of war. Upon his return home he attended Washburn where he was initiated as Bond number 541 in 1946. Undoubtedly, no Kansas Beta pledge has ever found the trials of pledgeship so easy to tolerate. After leaving Washburn, Brother Richmond spent 26 years as an entertainer and radio station executive and then 13 years as an executive with Pizza Hut. He entered the Chapter Grand on March 16, 2002.

    Washburn Phis in Uniform
    More than 300 Washburn Phis have joined a different band of brothers to serve our country in uniform. More than 50 are known to have served in World War I while the 1944 Kaw states that more than 200 Washburn Phis were in the armed forces during World War II. The tradition of Washburn Phis serving our nation dates back to days soon after the founding of the chapter and World War I. Colonel Harwood Benton '93', who was then a lieutenant, won the Distinguished Service Cross in France's Argonne Forest for rescuing two comrades by crossing an open field under enemy machine gun fire. Recently, at least eight Kansas Beta Phis have served in the uniform during the global war on terrorism including Lt. Colonel Theron "Buddy" Sims '916', Major Brian Bigham '1409' and Captains Adam Long '1455', Phil Kaberline '1468', Raymond Hanson '1510', Lieutenants Tyler Abel '1539' and Kyle Sissom '1536' and SGT Marc Limon '1493.'
