The Fellow recognition is a special honor given to those who take the principles to the highest level by dedicating themselves to a major service project that impacts lives and solves real problems.
At the Brotherhood Luncheon at Conclave, three brothers were named Fellows for doing just that.
Tyler R. Kinch, Grand Valley State ’11
Brother Tyler Kinch believes that sports give people the opportunity to develop important personal skills. He was named a Fellow for launching an organization that collects and donates thousands of dollars worth of used sports equipment to children so they can play organized sports and have every opportunity to grow.
Andrew T. O’Donnel, Toledo ’14
After having his eyes opened to the extent of poverty and homelessness in the world, Brother Andrew O’Donnel wanted to do more to combat it. He started an organization that helps connect willing undergraduates with the service organizations that need volunteers. Since founding the organization, more than 650 students have volunteered to make and deliver more than 2,600 lunches to the surrounding community.
Jeremy T. Poincenot, San Diego State ’13
After being diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that causes blindness, Jeremy Poincenot set out to find a cure. He was named a Fellow for starting a non-profit organization that has raised more than $100,000 to research Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON).
