Grand Master
Andrew Sovik ‘21

Hello! My name is Andrew Sovik. I’m originally from Corning, NY, and I’m a junior studying Aerospace Engineering at Purdue. I’m part of the spring ‘21 pledge class and I’m honored to serve as Grand Master for the Chi Chapter. For me, being a Kappa Sigma means to diligently apply myself to my studies, involve myself in my community, and always seek opportunities to grow. Chi has shown me incredible brotherhood, tradition, and passion; I am proud to call this chapter my home and immerse myself in Kappa Sigma’s values.

I strongly believe in our Executive Committee and potential as a chapter. This year, Chi looks forward to earn a higher GPA, thrive in philanthropy, and pursue social excellence. Roll Chi and AEKDB.

 

Grand Procurator
Xander Hoffmann '20

I’m Xander Hoffmann. I’m from Fort Wayne, Indiana where I attended Carroll High School. My major is computer science, which I’m entering my third year in. On the EC I plan to improve Risk Management procedures and make sure that JBoard is functioning correctly within the house. To this I have been working alongside our Grandmaster and Risk Management head on changing RM rules to better prepare for the semester. I have also been communicating with our JBoard head over the summer to make sure we are on the same page coming into the year. I also plan to make house points a clearer system, so brothers can know how many they have at any given time. My career aspirations are to be a Software Engineer. This summer I have been working in Indianapolis at Spot Freight as a software developer intern. The internship has been great in advancing my skills and preparing me for the industry.

 

Grand Master of Ceremonies
Ethan Gick '20

My name is Ethan Gick, I am a Junior studying Mechanical Engineering at Purdue. I am a part of the fall 2020 pledge class and originally from Leesburg, Virginia. Initially I joined Kappa Sigma as a way to meet new friends being from the east coast and not knowing many from Indiana. As soon as I became a pledge I realized there is more to wearing the star and crescent than having life long friends. It is dedicating yourself to excellence in your studies, community, chapter, and everywhere in one’s life. I hope to work in the aerospace industry and currently intern at Optimum Technologies, LLC. Chi has already given me an amazing college experience even through a pandemic and thus I feel a need to help continue this chapter’s excellence and chose to run for Grand Master of Ceremonies. I plan to bring a culture of diligent, committed, and persevering men into the historic Chi chapter. AEKDB!

 

Grand Scribe
Matthew Schmitt '21

My name is Matthew Schmitt from Milan, IN. I am a junior in Professional Flight, and just recently received my commercial pilot’s license. I rushed in the fall of my sophomore year as part of the largest pledge class in Chi’s rich history, and I am very excited for my new position on the EC. I immediately aspired to join the EC to improve the house in any way he could. With a strong academic plan and a backing from the revamped academic committee, I, along with the help of the EC and the entire chapter, am dedicated to reinforcing the history of academic excellence this chapter has shown in its past. With help from committee head Josh Ferguson, the alumni committee is developing and implementing an Alumni Mentorship program and will be reaching out to hundreds of alumni for interest. The newest committee in this Chi chapter, Diversity and Inclusion, will be heading a push for the involvement of minority groups to have a greater role in this Chapter as well as Greek life as a whole. AEKDB.

 

Grand Treasurer

Joel Kritenbrink '21

My name Is Joel Kritenbrink and I am a rising senior from St. John, Indiana. I am a member 

of Spring 21’ pledge class studying Construction Management with a minor in Management 

and also pursuing a Certificate in Entrepreneurship. Being a part of Kappa Sigma has 

provided me with so many different opportunities. I wanted to do my best to try and give 

back to the chapter so that is why I decided to run for Grand Treasurer. As the next Grand 

Treasurer, I plan on keeping neat and organized records of payments and dues as well as 

striving to get 100% undergraduate brother participation on our next philanthropy events. I 

am really looking forward to next year and I’m sure you’ll be hearing great things from Chi 

moving forward! A.E.K.Δ.B.
