The Executive Office of Sigma Pi Fraternity, International is proud to announce three men have been hired to fill the positions of Expansion Consultants.
Lanse Macke (Omega, Oregon State ’15), Joseph Manglardi (Iota-Kappa, Central Florida ’15), and Dalton Reeves (Alpha-Rho, Missouri State ’15) will start their new roles in June. Expansion Consultants are in charge of visiting campuses that don’t have a Sigma Pi chapter and recruiting like-minded individuals to form a colony of Sigma Pi. Additionally each Expansion Consultant will take ownership over one to two colonies and is charged with training, teaching and assisting them along the path to becoming full Sigma Pi chapters.
These three new additions to staff will be replacing current Expansion Consultants Michael Davis (Iota-Kappa, UCF ’13), Zachary Kishpaugh (Iota-Pi, Oklahoma State ’14) and Connor Schwalm (Theta-Eta, Old Dominion ’14) who will all be moving on in other professional endeavors. We thank all three of them for their dedication and service to the Fraternity.
Joseph Manglardi was born in Winter Park, Florida. The sixth person in his family to graduate from the University of Central Florida, Joseph will graduate with a degree in Business Management. While at UCF he was involved in various groups ranging from a leadership studies program, to student government, and Sigma Pi. He served on the executive council of Iota-Kappa Chapter for two years; one as Secretary and the next as Vice President. When asked to comment on his upcoming role, Joseph said, “I am excited to join the Sigma Pi team and work towards providing other young men with the opportunities and lifelong friends I received through the organization.”
Raised in Cuba, MO, Dalton Reeves was an active member in the Boy Scouts of America, where he was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout, academic bowl, and national honor society. Being awarded the Presidential Scholarship, Dalton decided to attend Missouri State University after graduation where he pursued a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. There he was actively involved in Dance Marathon, Residence Hall Association, and Sigma Pi Fraternity. After joining the fraternity and becoming a founding father, Dalton was able to lead his colony as Philanthropy Chairman, Vice President, President, Recruitment Chairman, and New Member Educator. The Fraternity allowed him to better the University, run for Homecoming King, and to be awarded Senior of the Year for Fraternity and Sorority Life. “I’m excited to come on board and better Sigma Pi and Fraternity & Sorority Life in general,” said Dalton.
An initiate of Omega Chapter at Oregon State University, Lanse will graduate in June with a Bachelors of Arts in Digital Communications and Music. After joining Sigma Pi in 2010, Lanse served as Philanthropy Chairman and was tasked with creating a new philanthropy event for his chapter, which continues to do well year after year. Lanse also spent a year as Brotherhood Chairman, and served as Sage for two consecutive years. He was also involved with many of the Omega Chapter committees, including Judicial Board, Social Committee, ACE Project Committee, and Alumni Relations Committee.
