Gamma Rho Roll Call of Distinction

Gamma Rho is in our 90th year. In May 2023, we launched the Roll Call of Distinction. Awarded annually as part of the Wickwire weekend, the chapter is looking to recognize the work of our local alumni for their work with the chapter, or in the wider community. Up to three will be awarded annually and they may be awarded posthumously.  


All Members who are chosen as Significant Sigs or Order of Constantine brothers are automatically inducted in the next year. Alumni brothers who were initiated in other chapters but are established in Halifax are eligible. Members do not have to be Chapter Members to receive the award. 

Categories for Roll Call include, but are not limited to:

  1. Leadership       
  2. Business/ Entrepreneurship     
  3. Politics 
  4. Excellence in Medical/Legal/Accounting
  5. Entrepreneur
  6. Social Enterprise
  7. Philanthropy
  8. Spirituality/Academics
  9. Sports
  10. Music   
  11. Active Chapter Mentorship and Involvement 
  12. Friend of Gamma Rho (Brothers from another chapter who have supported Gamma Rho)

Nominate a Brother:

Provide a one page document or letter highlighting the brother’s accomplishments in the category. Up to 2 further letters of commendation will be considered for each application and they can be from community members or brothers. The committee will take into account all activities that bring Honour to Sigma Chi. All nominations will be kept for 5 years and can be updated anytime prior to the deadline each year.

Please share any general Fraternity awards the nominee may have received including 7 Lights Award, Grand Consul citation etc. 

Nominations dates will be announced annually based on Wickwire Weekend events.

Special consideration will be given to brothers who have been nominated for International awards.

The Panel

A rolling group of 3 brothers will be chosen every three years. Ideally, these brothers will range in years of service, current active status in the alumni chapter and diversity of backgrounds. The panel will be selected by the alumni chapter.  


Winners will be added to a new plaque at the chapter house and recognized with a new Gamma Rho Pin.
