April 2012 Centaur All-Star: Brother Jerry Nieves!

May 30, 2012

Please join us in congratulating Brother Jerry Nieves of Beta Sigma Chapter at Rutgers University for earning the Centaur All-Star Award for April 2012!

Brother Nieves, who was nominated by fellow Beta Sigma Chapter Brother Leonard Haas, has been making his presence make a difference in fostering activity within his Chapter, attracting new potential members as well as keeping active brothers and alumni involved.

Brother Haas shares a few words on why he nominated Br. Nieves:

Brother Jerry Nieves has accomplished many great things during his short tenure at the Beta Sigma Chapter of Delta Lambda Phi. Jerry has only been an active brother for one semester, but had already been thinking of new and innovative ways to enhance the Beta Sigma chapter’s recruitment, social, and service programming long before that during his pledge process. This month, Jerry has revolutionized our chapter’s annual formal by almost doubling attendance with guests and alumni, creating and designing a fully themed affair, and instituting the tradition of personalized glassware as a give away. Jerry’s ability for planning and executing this affair has been phenomenal and I was truly impressed.

Additionally, Jerry has played an integral role on our fraternity’s social committee. For example, Jerry has been highly involved in organizing Rupaul’s Drag Race viewing parties as combined social and recruitment events. These events have attracted many people and have greatly expanded our pool of potential rushees and have allowed us to connect with and engage potential members on campus. Jerry is the first to greet new people at events, make them feel welcome, and ensure that they come to the next event. I am confident that thanks to Jerry’s active recruitment strategies, we will have large turn out at next years Rush.

Br. Nieves and all Centaur All-Star recipients will be provided complimentary hotel lodging and free registration for the upcoming Convention 2012 event in Portland.  They will be featured in the Centaur’s Yell newsletter, here on the fraternity’s web site, and on Confluence. All recipients also qualify for the prestegious Brother of the Year Award.
