Sam Trawick, a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, is the 2012 Greek God.
“To God be the glory,” Trawick said. “I didn’t expect to win.”
Nine contestants competed for the title in Ida Waldran Auditorium last night. Sigma Kappa sorority sponsors the annual pageant to promote awareness of and raise money for Alzheimer’s disease research.
This year’s pageant raised more than $2,000. Mallory Ferguson, president of Sigma Kappa, said she was pleased with the pageant’s outcome.
“I’m super excited that we got to raise over $2,000 toward Alzheimer’s research, and I’m glad we got more awareness raised for the disease,” Ferguson said.
The pageant was hosted by Matt Farr, the 2011 Greek God, and Sigma Kappa’s Jessika Ballew. Farr said he was happy with the judges’ decision for the new Greek God.
“I feel like there was a lot of good competition, and I think that Sam’s demeanor really moved the crowd,” Farr said. “He did an awesome job.”
Trawick was sponsored by Sigma Phi Lambda sorority. Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity member Joey Baker was awarded first runner-up. Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity member Demarcus Harrison won the People’s Choice award.
