Late Pi Beta Phi Grand Council Member Evelyn Peters Kyle Honored at Alma Mater  

ST. LOUIS, MO – October 30, 2015 – Pi Beta Phi’s first Grand Council Vice President of Philanthropy, Evelyn Peters Kyle, was honored earlier this month at her Alma Mater, Monmouth College. Evelyn Peters Kyle was inducted into the Order of Omega Hall of Fame during the first annual Fraternity and Sorority Alumni Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Evelyn Peters Kyle was an instrumental part of Pi Beta Phi’s Grand Council starting in 1964. She served as both the first Vice President of Philanthropy and five years later, Grand Vice President Alumnae. After serving on Grand Council, she went on to be Pi Beta Phi’s only poet laureate. As poet laureate, Evelyn Peters Kyle wrote poems that are still an integral part of Pi Beta Phi history and traditions.
