8/4/17 INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – On June 24, 2017, Ashland University senior Hunter Music was elected as one of the new archons to the executive council for the six District Councils of Phi Kappa Psi. Since 1886, the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity has been controlled by undergraduates.
This unique system of governance is achieved by the Executive Council, the governing body, which is made up of 10 members, six of whom are elected as undergraduate students. Archons represent the six Districts of Phi Kappa Psi, which divide the nation into roughly equal parts based on the number of chapters represented. Archons are elected every odd numbered year and serve two-year terms.
Hunter, who represents District II, is majoring in Information Systems and Entrepreneurship at Ashland University. Hunter grew up in Crestline, Ohio. 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.
He is currently employed by the J.M. Smucker Co., where he has interned for three years. As the archon of District II, he looks forward to fostering the success and ideals of the fraternity.
“I am excited to lead on the national level for an organization that has provided so much for me. I look forward to driving peaceful and successful change that is derived from clear and concise communication from the constituents that I represent throughout Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia,” Hunter said. “It is an honor to be able to represent Ashland University and Crestline, Ohio, in such a positive light. I also look forward to extending new unique opportunities to the Ashland University community through this leadership in the future.”
