Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity at the University of Texas at Tyler is doing their part to help keep Tyler beautiful. On Saturday, September 5, 2015, members spent the morning along Highway 110 (Troup Highway) to help beautify the city road. Members walked over a mile, clearing trash and debris from the roadside.
In October of 2014, Jesus Maldonado, former philanthropy chair contacted the Texas Department of Transportation in the hope that our chapter could expand service opportunities in the community. The chapter adopted a two mile stretch of the main thoroughfare between Tyler and the city of Whitehouse.
The fraternity chose to adopt the street because of its high visibility to residents and its importance to the city of Tyler. “Tyler is such a beautiful place. It’s important for our members to contribute to the betterment of our community,” Pi Kappa Phi President Sean Reinertson said.
The roadside is cleaned at least four times each year by the chapter.
