NGLA honors Gardner with Guenzler Award
The Guenzler Award honors staff members or volunteers of fraternity/sorority organizations who have made significant and long term contributions to the fraternity|sorority community within the Northeast region or to NGLA. Our association could not have bestowed this honor on a more deserving candidate.

As the Executive Director of the Order Omega, International Greek Honorary from 1971 to 2013, Dr. Kent L. Gardner provided vision and commitment to both undergraduates and professionals though programs, competitions and recognition at fraternal conferences has allowed many to challenge themselves. By recognizing those individuals who exemplify the high standards of leadership in inter- fraternity activities, the Order of Omega with this leader at the helm encouraged all to continue along this line, and to encourage and empower others as well.

Conner receives Philippi Award
The Philippi Award, honoring a fraternity or sorority professional who has made significant contributions to the fraternity|sorority community within the Northeast region by advising any governing council, was bestowed upon Dave Conner, Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Programs at the College of New Jersey.

His nominator writes, “Our advisor has consistently exhibited a code of conduct that inspires those around him as he fulfills his own aspirations for the success of our community. It is through his achievements that we, as leaders in the Greek community, are able to drive our organizations toward a meaningful experience as members of a timeless tradition."

In addition to his role at TCNJ, Conner contributes selflessly to NGLA, the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors, Theta Chi, and other fraternal organizations.
