Egg a Phi Sig

One of the greatest things about being a part of Greek life is participating and raising money for their philanthropies. The Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity brothers at Henderson spent last Thursday’s lunch break raising money for their national philanthropy, Special Olympics.

According to their website, “the Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities and physical disabilities, providing year-round training and activities to 5 million participants and Unified Sports partners in 172 countries.”

The Phi Sigma Kappa set up Egg A Phi Sig on the quad to raise money for the Special Olympics. Anyone could pay one dollar to egg a random member of Phi Sigma Kappa, but they could also pay three dollars to pick which member got egged. Elizabeth Adair, Payton Barefield, and Reese Townsend, members of Alpha Sigma Tau, participated in the egg throwing.

“We had quite a bit of money that we wanted to donate to the cause, and it was an added bonus that we got to egg our friends in the process,” said Adair. “We were pretty much out there the whole time throwing eggs. I accidentally hit my friend while trying to egg a Phi Sig, but she got me back so we’re even.”

The members ended up egged from head to toe, literally. Phi Sigma Kappa member Joel Brewer was the unfortunate victim of having an egg out in his boot. “We really did not think this through all the way,” said the fraternity’s president, Max Nannemann. “Covered in wet broken eggs on a windy day was quite cold and some of the eggs would not break when thrown so they had to be cracked a little and thrown.”

Out of a total of 108 eggs, many were taken to the head and back but all were smashed in the name of Special Olympics.
