Matthew King receives Robertson Award

Matthew King (BSBA ’20) has received the Robertson Award, which recognizes the most outstanding undergraduate member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.

King is a 2016 initiate of the Gamma Upsilon chapter at TU. He served as chapter president and treasurer before graduating this spring with a degree in computer information systems and minors in computer science and cybersecurity.

The Robertson Award selected King out of more than 17,000 active eligible students. He is the fourth member of TU’s Gamma Upsilon chapter to receive the prestigious award, following Benjamin Quick (2010), Caleb Lareau (2015) and Matthew Wells (2019). Between King and Wells, 2020 is the university’s second consecutive year to host a Robertson Award recipient.

Not only did King graduate Summa Cum Laude, but he was also actively involved on campus and with his fraternity, serving as president of the Order of Omega honor society in 2018-19. He also was a member of Mortar Board, Beta Gamma Sigma, Phi Eta Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi. Despite his active schedule, he excelled academically and was named both a presidential scholar and the Collins College of Business 2018 male scholar.

As a recipient of the Robertson Award, King will receive both a scholarship and certificate.
