The Ronald H. Jury Interfraternal Friendship Award was created to honor Past National President, Ronald H. Jury in 2002. Initiated into the Mu Zeta Chapter at Lock Haven University in 1970, Ron was a champion for Phi Mu Delta since his undergraduate years. He joined the National Council in 1982 when he was asked to serve by his close friend and chapter brother, Bob Lomison. Ron would be elected National President in 1990, succeeding his friend. In 1994, Ron was the first Phi Mu Delta to be elected to the Board of Director of the North-American Interfraternity Conference. There he was mentored by men like Dru Bagwell of Phi Sigma Kappa and Sigma Phi Epsilon's Frank Ruck. Ron was a tireless advocate for the strength of inter-fraternalism and understanding that a strong Greek community meant a strong Phi Mu Delta. Unfortunately, Ron passed away in 2008. Today, we honor his memory by recognizing the support and efforts of our inter-fraternal friends. There is no nomination form for this award. The award is given at Conclave every two years, when applicable, and the recipient is selected by the National Council.
