RENO -- Brittany Bell has received Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women’s prestigious Jean Wirths Scott Leadership Award for Outstanding Change Leadership. Bell recognized she was in a position to affect positive change, not just within her own chapter, but also on a larger scale in the University’s Panhellenic community.

The Jean Wirths Scott Leadership Award for Outstanding Change Leadership recognizes a junior or senior who has served on her chapter’s Executive Council in an exemplary manner and, in the performance of her duties, has implemented changes and improvements in her chapter or local Panhellenic community. It is given annually to one collegiate member of Pi Beta Phi. The award honors past Pi Beta Phi President Jean Wirths Scott.

After a transformative experience at the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute, which brings together fraternity men and sorority women to enhance leadership skills and personal awareness, Bell built consensus with Pi Beta Phi officers and staff to address her chapter’s needs. Bell also served as Panhellenic President, a role that required her to manage several issues involving Pi Beta Phi’s Grand Council and the attention of the Fraternity’s National Panhellenic Conference Delegate. To address harmful aspects of campus culture, Brittany was instrumental in bringing speakers to campus that inspired students to seek change.

“Brittany is a wonderful and dedicated leader who demonstrated integrity and professionalism while her chapter underwent change,” said Pi Beta Phi National Panhellenic Conference Delegate Linda Ibsen. “In all our communications and work together, I was continually impressed by her maturity and strong personal values. I cannot think of another Pi Phi who is more deserving of this award.”
