INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – One of Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity’s most prestigious brotherhood accolades, the Edwin N. Sommer Award, was presented to Myles K. Beck, Omega (University of Missouri) 1967 on July 14, 2018, at ZBT’s 2018 International Convention in Los Angeles.
The Edwin N. Sommer Award is presented occasionally to a ZBT alumnus for “selfless dedication to the ideals of Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity.”
Brother Beck became President of the Omega Building Corporation in 1971. In the early 1980's, he was instrumental in the revival of the Alpha Omicron chapter at the University of Arizona and the establishment of the Alpha Omicron Building Corporation where he continues to be involved in both entities to this day.
"It was a tremendous honor to receive the Edwin N. Sommer Award at this year's Convention. I count it as one of the highlights of my more than 55 year involvement as a brother of ZBT,” Brother Beck said.
