2016 Spirit of Sigma Chi Scholarship Recipient
Cullen Shaver is an Industrial Engineering major at the University of Missouri - Columbia, graduating in May of 2019. Originally from Chesterfield, MO, Cullen graduated from Marquette High School with a 4.0 GPA and an ACT score that earned him an annual scholarship to Mizzou.
Cullen has always been physically active, playing high school soccer both club and Varsity. He also enjoys tennis, ultimate frisbee and a little futsol from time to time. He also excercises his curiousity for tech through his interest in cameras and video production and has shown an aptitude for connecting people when he founded Marquette High School's Ultimate Frisbee team his junior year.
Service to and for others has also been important to Cullen, which is something that he continues to display during his time in the Sigma Chi house. He was recently elected to the position of Brotherhood Chair within the fraternity. "The importance of an actual 'brotherhood' between our members means alot to me," says Shaver. "I wanted the Brotherhood Chair position so that I could help build the camaraderie of the guys in our house and hopefully initiate some new, worthwhile and long lasting XI XI traditions."
After graduation Cullen hopes to find a career in engineering that allows him to see the world and, in true Josh Seidel fashion, help others by solving big problems. Sounds like someone who truly understands what it means to work hard, play hard and help others.
