Submitted by Russ Keene

Will Roberts was nominated as Pike for the Month by fellow chapter brothers at Theta Upsilon Chapter. Will is a junior studying international business and minoring in military science, originally from Cookeville, Tenn. In addition to serving as newly elected chapter president, Will is in his third year as a member of Tennessee Tech’s Army ROTC program, presently serving as a squad leader, with commissioning as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army anticipated upon graduation.

At the Tennessee Tech Pike house Will has served on the recruitment committee, new member orientation board, internal VP and member development VP. He was recently elected chapter president beginning his term in 2024. Will lives in the fraternity house where consistently attends most chapter events, has a hand in planning many events, is active in IFC workshops and other campus meetings. Theta Upsilon has recognized Will as Brother of the Week, for planning and executing its Event of the Year, and has earned the chapter’s Exceptional Leadership Award.

Mason Churchwell ’21, Theta Upsilon’s 2022 president says of Will, “Will is one of the best leaders and brothers we have. He strives to make Pike the best fraternity on campus no matter the cost. He puts Pike before everything else.” 

For Will’s many contributions to Theta Upsilon and our brotherhood, his preparation and commitment to serve the Nation in the military, his scholastic achievement, and his campus and community involvement, we are pleased to recognize Will Roberts as December’s PIKE of the Month.

Pike means a great deal to me. It has given me my best friends and family, it has given me a place to live and love, but most importantly it has made me who I am today. I have learned so much through the fraternity and I don’t think I will ever stop learning from Pike and our people. I’ve had the chance to not only hold leadership positions but also go to PIKE U conferences and network with hundreds of other leaders and learn from them as well. I will always be thankful for what Pike has given to me and can’t wait to see what it this brotherhood brings its members in the future. – Will Roberts ’21
