In recent years, Gamma Pi, the Second District Graduate Chapter of the Year for 2015, has consistently gotten some type of accolades at the conference, whether chapter or individual. This year it continued, but in a different vein. It began with Gamma Pi's newly re-organized Hop Team, comprised of a handful of new or recent initiates, crowned the winner of the step competition held Friday night, April 29, before an enthusiastic packed house. Vice Basileus Bro. Tony Lee was Master of Ceremonies. The Gamma Pi team will represent the Second District in Las Vegas at the Conclave in July. Gamma Pi also finished Third Place in Social Action Chapter of the Year balloting. The chapter is also a previous Social Action Chapter of the Year. And The Super Chapter also placed in the district-wide Omega Talent Hunt with Gamma Pi Talent Hunt winner Aston Woolery finishing in Second Place during Saturday's Talent Hunt program.

The chapter tallied in the individual awards with Immediate Past Basileus Gordon Everett being named Committee Chair of the Year for the Second District, by outgoing District Representative Milton Harrison, who recognized Bro. Everett's tireless efforts organizing and running the new Violence Prevention Committee. "Our committee worked on several initiatives this year. We worked with the International Committee on a strategic plan. Our committee also held discussions across the Second District in all five states," said Bro. Everett.

"I was proud of Gamma Pi's participation. We upheld our reputation for being one of the most engaged chapters at the District level. We are now looking forward to the 80th Grand Conclave in Las Vegas in July,"said Brother Brian K. Long, Basileus, who, with a new District Council, is already busy making sure that Gamma Pi is represented on the District level.
