The David Harrop Memorial Scholarship

Every year, Sigma Pi awards one junior member of the fraternity the David Harrop Memorial Scholarship. This $1,000.00 award is given to the brother who demonstrates academic excellence, while leading and supporting Sigma Pi as well staying active and giving back to the local Ithaca community.

The 2019 David Harrop Memorial Scholarship Recipient:
Joseph Brogan ’20

Joseph Brogan ’20

Joseph Brogan is a senior in the School of Hotel Administration, working toward his Bachelor of Science degree. He is also pursuing a minor in real estate.

While academics are Joe’s main focus, he has demonstrated his well-rounded spirit of brotherhood in all that he does. He has served as Mu Chapter treasurer (2018–’19), and his list of other extra-curricular activities is impressive, including College Mentors for Kids, Cornell Real Estate Club, Cornell Traditions Fellows, and the Cornell men’s rugby team.

Joe credits his academic success to Sigma Pi: “Having the opportunity to live in 730 University Avenue has granted me the unique opportunity to push myself to new intellectual heights that I would not have strived for if I was not in that cultivating environment.&hellips; rising to the occasion, competing with those around me, while finding spirited debate and discussion. Living in this house has elevated me academically and intellectually, and for that, I am forever grateful”. Joe is extremely grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Sigma Pi and for the mentorship and support that he has received from the active brothers and alumni of Mu Chapter.
