Yhe national agricultural fraternity, Alpha Gamma Rho, has announced that the Alpha Delta Chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho at Montana State University has achieved the distinguished Gold Award for representing the core values of the Fraternity.
To achieve this Gold Award recognition is a rare accomplishment, that is only bestowed only on those chapters that show Academic excellence and a dedication to building better men in agriculture.
The Alpha Delta chapter worked diligently this year to achieve this award. Members of AGR are heavily involved in a variety of clubs and organizations on campus and many hold leadership positions in their college. This high rate of involvement in campus organizations has helped to raise recruitment, and increased awareness of the benefits of AGR membership.
In addition to recognition for their agricultural leadership, the Alpha Delta chapter is the perennial winner of MSU’s philanthropy awards. Known for their hundreds of hours of volunteer Community Service, the Chapter holds an annual “Testy Fest” Concert and fundraiser that allowed them to donate over four-thousand dollars to various charities across Montana this past year.
Alpha Delta’s membership development helps members to become better men, and make solid career contributions to agriculture. A part of the MSU campus since 1925, Alpha Gamma Rho has created a strong bond that is shared between decades of Alumni and collegiate members.
Alpha Delta has achieved the Green Award in the past, but now has joined the ten percent of the chapters that are at the prestigious Gold level for Alpha Gamma Rho. This ranking places Montana State solidly among the top collegiate ag leaders of Purdue, Ohio State, Nebraska, Kansas State and other top agricultural Universities.
