D. Grant Loree Leadership Award
The D. Grant Loree Leadership Award is awarded annually to the top-ranked leadership award recipient by the Canadian Phi Delta Theta Scholarship Foundation. The award was first announced on April 21, 2022 by the Canadian Foundation in recognition of Brother D. Grant Loree’s (Toronto ‘70) long-standing contribution and leadership to the Canadian Foundation. Brother Loree was initiated as Bond #627 on November 30, 1966 at the Ontario Alpha Chapter in Toronto. He was the Alpha North Province President from 1984-89 and a member of the Ontario Alpha House Corporation from 2016-17. His deepest involvement in Phi Delta Theta has been as a Director of the Canadian Foundation where he served as its Chairman for many years. He stepped down from Foundation’s Board in 2022.
Brother Loree has certainly lived his life in the Fraternity according to the principles upon which we underpin our whole brotherhood: to transmit the Fraternity to those who follow; not only, not less, but greater than it was transmitted to him.
To characterize Grant as a leader, both in the business world and in Phi Delta Theta, is an understatement. He has been a mentor to many undergraduates and alumni alike; his quiet presence and influence with others leads other to do their best in their endeavors; his friendship with countless Phis across this country and throughout the fraternity is boundless.
