During the Brotherhood Banquet at the 61st National Convention in Washington, D.C., Phi Kappa Tau welcomed the inaugural class of Phi Taus Under 40. At this year’s Convention in Sacramento, Calif., the Fraternity welcomed a new class of successful brothers, under the age of 40, who have exhibited outstanding success in their chosen professional field, while consistently living Phi Kappa Tau’s values.

The 2016 class included nine brothers representing chapters from all over the country. It is an impressive group of men who have succeeded in a wide range of professional fields, including education, law, business and entrepreneurship.

Phi Taus Under 40 is not merely an award. It is a snapshot of Phi Kappa Tau as a national organization. These alumni come from all backgrounds and have varying experiences, but with one particular trait in common. They are the product of the Phi Kappa Tau experience, which shaped them into the men they are today.
