Additional Awards and Recognition

Mark V. Anderson Character-In-Action Leadership Award

A person of good character illustrates trustworthiness, respect, personal responsibility, fairness and citizenship. Whether a member donates his time and energy to a worthy cause, acts as a role model for the youth of his community or simply goes out of his way to help others, Sigma Chi recognizes this as an act of Character-in-Action™. Such members, who also lead with integrity, are good candidates for the Mark V. Anderson Character-in-Action™ Leadership Award.
