Girson Recognized for Interfraternal Service

Aaron Girson was recognized by Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity with the Riegelman-Jacobs Award for Outstanding Interfraternal Service at their Convention this summer. This award commemorates two outstanding brothers of ZBT. Brother Harold Riegelman of Kappa Chapter at Cornell University was from the class of 1914. Brother Maurice Jacobs was from Pi Chapter at the University of Maine and from the class of 1917. Both served as President of the North-American Interfraternity Conference, and Brother Jacobs received the NIC’s highest award, the Gold Medal. It is fitting for the Fraternity to memorialize Brothers Riegelman and Jacobs with an award honoring outstanding service to the interfraternity community.
