Awards are judged on their individual merit in all categories by members of the Awards Committee. The categories are: Academic Achievement, Chapter Development and Leadership, Membership Recruitment, Multicultural Initiatives/Programming, Philanthropy and Service, Public Relations, and Risk Reduction.

Remembering Larry Moses
The NGLA community mourns the loss of Charles "Larry" Moses, former University of Pennsylvania Office of Student Affairs/Fraternity & Sorority Life Program Coordinator for the Multicultural Greek Council. An ardent support of NGLA, Larry passed away on October 14, after battling cardiac-related issues over the past few months.

Amy Vojta, NGLA Board Member Emeritus, noted, “Many of us were so sad to hear of the passing of Larry Moses. It is an understatement to say he was a fixture.... an 'old head', a big part of the Region I AFA, and NGLA family. Larry's generous spirit and larger than life presence will be missed.”

More information on Larry's passing and a celebration of his life can be found here in an article from The Daily Pennsylvanian, the University of Pennsylvania independent student news organization.
