To commemorate the loss of our chapter president Quentin Thomas Alcorn on June 15, 2015, the brothers of the Xi Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity have established the Quentin Alcorn Memorial Scholarship. Quent was both an accomplished scholar and athlete: a Virginia State Wrestling Champion, a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Virginia and President of the Xi Chapter of Theta Chi. These titles and accolades, however, do not even begin to describe the kind of person that Quent was. He exemplified the qualities of a leader. Quent was brilliant, honest, and selfless. He was a genuine friend, a devoted brother, and the best son a mother or father could ask for.
The scholarship will be awarded to a member of the University of Virginia Greek Community who best embodies the characteristics that made Quent the man we all admired: dedication, selfless service, love of learning, his ability to impact every life he touched, and his capacity for fun and humor. The purpose of this scholarship is to not only solidify Quent’s legacy, but also to promote those Greek members who have made a positive impact on the community.
To date, the scholarship has raised nearly $95,000 from over 300 donors. In March, the scholarship was awarded to its 3rd recipient, Augusta Durham, a rising 4th Year and current president of Pi Phi Sorority.
Please consider making a gift today to honor Quent’s legacy.
