History of Millersville Chapter of ACACIA

The Millersville Chapter of ACACIA began as an idea, conceived by Brad Skiles, in the winter of 1987 in Bard Hall. The inspiration for the idea came from Todd Skiles, Brad's brother, an Acacian at Shippensburg University. Brad obtained the names of twenty five interested men with the help of Mark Hess and after contacting ACACIA International Headquarters, Millersville ACACIA became an official colony. Sixteen of the twenty five began the 4-week pledge program, and temporary officers were elected. When the 4-week pledge program was completed, the executive council of the ACACIA chapter initiated the sixteen., Thus, the ACACIA Chapter of Millersville University was founded on May 2, 1987. The chapter was officially chartered April 23, 1988.

A pair of local awards have been established in honor of two of our founding brothers and are given out annually in the spring. The Brad Skiles Award is given to the brother that best exemplifies ACACIA by showing the most ACACIA Spirit. For achieving the highest G.P.A. in the fraternity, a brother is rewarded with the John Chipperfield Award.
