Pi Beta Phi Mourns the Loss of a University of Georgia Member  

ST. LOUIS – May 4, 2016 – We are saddened to announce the death of Brittany Feldman, collegiate member of Pi Beta Phi’s University of Georgia chapter. Brittany, a sophomore, was tragically killed in an automobile accident alongside some of her close friends — two Alpha Chi Omega members and a member of Tri Delta — on the evening of April 27.

“Brittany was one of the most beloved members,” Chapter President Meredith Stone said. “Her love for Pi Phi and her sisters was evident in everything she did. We will miss Brittany's contagious joy and compassionate spirit with all of our hearts.”

Even though only a sophomore, Brittany was a leader within her chapter and in her community. This semester she began serving as the Georgia Alpha New Member Coordinator; a position chapter members knew she was looking forward to come recruitment this fall.

“The car accident claiming the lives of four University of Georgia students is heartbreaking,” Grand President Paula Shepherd said. “The Pi Phi family sends its sincerest condolences to all of the families who were impacted by this tragic event and to our Georgia Alpha Chapter members who are grieving the loss of their sister.”

A celebration of Brittany’s life was held yesterday at North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. Letters of condolences can be sent to: The Georgia Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi, 886 S. Milledge Ave. Athens, Georgia 30605–1332
