Foundation Welcomes Six Brothers to the Program Committee

Indianapolis, IN – Phi Kappa Psi Foundation is pleased to announce the appointment of Drake Broussard UL-Lafayette ’16, Hunter Music Ashland ’14, Jacob Oppenheimer Beloit ’05, Dr. Rob Parada RIT ’92, Wes Schaub Toledo ’80 and Chad Stegemiller Butler ’98 to the Program Committee.

Brothers Broussard, Music, Oppenheimer, Parada, Schaub and Stegemiller bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to a committee that relies on the diverse representation of Phi Psi brothers. Their wisdom, fresh perspective and enthusiasm will be valuable as the committee that is charged with advancing the organization’s internal and external programming support and assisting in garnering the financial resources of these mission directed initiatives.

Brother Broussard currently serves as the Distrive IV Archon on the Executive Council. Although he kept to himself most of the time as the quiet kid in school, Drake maintained a small circle of friends. After leaving high school he felt the desire to push himself and break out of his shell. With that notion, he decided to participate in recruitment. Little did he know that it would be the brothers of Phi Psi who would push him out of that quiet shell, far beyond what he ever imagined.

Brother Music currently serves as the District II Archon on the Executive Council. In high school he was active all four years as a member of clubs, as well as several sports such as football, basketball, tennis and cross-country. After graduating at the top of his class as Valedictorian, Hunter began his collegiate journey at Ashland University where he studies Information Systems and Entrepreneurship. He is currently employed by the J.M. Smucker Company where he has interned for three years.

Brother Oppenheimer held several positions in his undergraduate years in Wisconsin Gamma including Risk Manager, Alumni Relations Chair and Student Government President. He received his BA in Political Science, Legal Studies from Beloit, and his MA in Higher Education & Student Affairs from the University of Iowa. Today, Brother Oppenheimer serves as the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life for Babson College.

Brother Parada has held numerous positions as both an undergraduate and an alumnus of New York Theta including Director of Accreditation, Chapter Advisor, House Corporation President and Secretary. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Optical Sciences form the University of Arizona, his Doc. Sc. (Ph.D.) in Atmospheric Optics from Université du Littoral Côte d’Opale in Dunkerque, France, and his B.S. and A.A.S. in Imaging Science from RIT. Today, Brother Parada serves as the Vice President of Optics & Customer Program Development for Syntec Optics.

Brother Schaub held several positions in his undergraduate years in Ohio Eta including Director of Scholarship, Director of New Member Education and Director of Member Education. He received his BS in Architectural History from Toledo and his MA in Educational Leadership from Eastern Michigan. Today, Brother Schaub serves as the Pre Medical Student Advisor at Case Western, advising undergraduates through the medical school admissions process.

Brother Stegemiller served as both Corresponding Secretary and Vice President in his undergraduate years at Indiana Zeta. He received his BS in Telecommunication Arts and worked for Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity from 2001 to 2015 serving in the roles of Educational Leadership Consultant, Director of Chapter Services and Assistant Executive Director. Today, Brother Stegemiller is Manager, Delivery Services for nimblejack, a start-up relationship marketing services company.

They join Jim Paponetti Ashland ’95 (Chair), Mike Flechas Ole Miss ’99, Adam Morgan GW ’01, Dr. Marc Persson F&M ’97 and Guy Spriggs Ohio State ’71 who are continuing their service on the committee.
