Meet One of Our Volunteers

keifer ackley award photoKeifer Ackley is the president of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity at McNeese State University. Ackley helped organize their “Monster Mash” Halloween dance that had 150 current students at McNeese and over 50 Special Olympics Louisiana-Southwest Area athletes in attendance.

During the dance, it was announced that Ackley had been granted the 2017 American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (Louisiana Chapter) Scholarship Award for his efforts with Special Olympics Louisiana at McNeese. Also, in April, he worked with his fraternity to start an on-campus basketball tournament called “PIKE Slamma Jamma” that was able to raise $4,500 for SOLA.

Ackley says, “We tend to become selfish in college as we become more independent and stressed. Events like these are important for students to learn how to unify, love, and encourage others. It’s truly remarkable to see how many lives are impacted.”
