The Distinguished Alumni Service Award is rewarded to Alumni who have brought honor to our fraternity through their fidelity and adherence to the values of Psi Upsilon and their service to their chapter, community, the Fraternity, and the great nations of the United States and Canada.

This year’s winners were Bill Wishard, Delta Delta, ’64 (Williams) and Patrick Gilrane Psi ’83 (Hamilton).

Bill Wishard has been an incredibly devoted brother and mentor for the Lambda Sigma chapter, sitting in on chapter meetings since they were a colony, inspiring them with the message that brotherhood is for life and not just during your collegiate years. His presence at the Lambda Sigma’s major philanthropic and recruiting events exemplifies his passion for the chapter, his role in their college experience, and the life-long friendship he symbolizes to many of the active brothers.

Josh Vorhees, Lambda Sigma ’18, Archon, said, “Bill Wishard’s passion for Psi Upsilon is pervasive in our chapter and he has become a staple of any Brother of the Lambda Sigma’s college experience. Our chapter is forever thankful for Bill’s contributions to our group specifically and Psi Upsilon as a whole.”


Patrick Gilrane has been the Alumni President for the Psi chapter for the past decade- helping to develop it into the positive force it is today. However, his effect on the Psi chapter has been felt since 1987 when he joined the Psi Chapter Board of Trustees. He was a pivotal force in orchestrating the return, and eventual surge, of alumni participation with the Psi chapter giving it one of the most vibrant alumni networks in the country. The current brothers enjoy his campus visits throughout the year, where he learns about every undergraduate, and loudly champion his influence on their career mentor program.

Matthew Foos, Psi ’18, Archon, said, “He knows each and every one of us undergrads on a personal level, and is there for us through the good and the bad. He is a true family man, and family, for Gil, includes generations of Psi brethren.”
