Phi Psi Introduces New Educational Leadership Consultants

September 10, 2015 - The Fraternity is proud to formally introduce the four educational leadership consultants who will be traveling to our chapters this fall. We have profiled them individually on social media over the past few weeks, but here is your one-stop shop to learn a little bit about each of them. Jared, Jordan, Nathan, and Zachary will be hitting the road next week to start assisting our chapters. If you have any questions about which ELC will be visiting your chapter, please contact the Director of Chapter Services, Michael Morin.

Without further ado, here is the 2015-2016 Educational Leadership Consultant team.

Favorite Memory as a Phi Psi: For me to pinpoint one memory as my favorite is difficult to do because I have so many, but my favorite ones were when my chapter brothers told me I made a positive difference in  their lives. In turn, all of them have made a profound difference in my life and for that I am eternally grateful. 
Why Work as a Consultant? I want to be a positive leader and role model for young men that are going through college. They are at a point in their lives in which anything can mold them for better or for worse. Helping them make the right decisions and to keep them motivated after making mistakes is something I feel many people in our society need to become successful. It is important for me to let others know that it is not our problems that define us, but how we react to our problems that bring forth who we really are.

Chapter/University: Louisiana Gamma - Loyola University, New Orleans
Education: B.A. in Communications and Public Relations
Positions Held: Messenger, Philanthropy Chair
Favorite Memory as a Phi Psi: Going to school in New Orleans was of course an experience in itself. My favorite Phi Psi memories are directly tied with the city itself and participating in our events that related to New Orleans culture.
Why Work as a Consultant? I recognize the benefits of working for the Fraternity, especially as a first job out of college.  I also am excited for the opportunity to travel the country, network with undergraduate and alumni brothers, and most importantly, serve the Fraternity that I love.

Hometown: Atlanta, Indiana
Chapter/University: Indiana Gamma - Wabash College
Education: B.A. in History
Positions Held: House Manager and Fraternity Education Chair
Favorite Memory as a Phi Psi: Attending the Grand Arch Council in San Antonio, Texas in 2012 because I was able to meet many different Phi Psis from across the country and make a lot of new friends. GAC was when I realized the magnitude of the National fraternity and what an honor it was for me to be a part of it. 
Why Work as a Consultant? I chose to become a consultant to serve the Fraternity and to meet Phi Psis from around the country.

Hometown: Lima, Ohio
Chapter/University: Ohio Eta - University of Toledo
Education: B.A. in Organizational Management and Communications
Positions Held: Vice President, Governing and Scholarship Chair
Favorite Memory as a Phi Psi: Performing for three years with my chapter brothers in Songfest, which is the University of Toledo's second oldest tradition. It was originated by our local chapter over 75 years ago.
Why Work as a Consultant? As an undergraduate, I had the privilege to be a part of a long-term change process within our chapter that transformed the organization from the struggling fraternity of about 20 men that it was to one of the premier personal development and philanthropic organizations on campus. I applied to be a consultant because I wanted to give back to the organization that helped develop me into the man I am today and I believe that my experiences will help chapters at any level across the nation meet their goals and expectations.

Keep in mind, as we attempt to expand the ELC team, we are still seeking out additional qualified candidates for the Educational Leadership Consultant position. If you're interested in the position (or know someone who might be interested), please head to the Careers portion of the website to learn more.
