Fraternity Commits to Children Battling Cancer
The announcement was made during the fifth annual PIKE Week of Service at USD. The chapter will support pediatric cancer initiatives through a gift to Ava’s House, a 20-bed hospice facility to be located at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls.
The gift honors Tanna Kingsbury, of Letcher, South Dakota, the sister of chapter brother Tarkenton Kingsbury. She died in September 2014 after a battle with cancer. “At just 15 years old, Tanna inspired our fraternity,” said Pi Kappa Alpha President KC Herman, a third-year student from Milford, Nebraska. “Our chapter is filled with passionate members who want to make a difference in kids’ lives.”
