Phi Delta Phi Involvement

Since joining the Pinckney Inn of Phi Delta Phi in his 2L year, David has been extremely involved, and has stepped up when the Inn needed him in many situations. He assisted greatly with the "Canned Immunity" drive run by the Inn each year, constantly making sure the bins did not overflow and assisting in the pick up. Additionally, when the Treasurer resigned, David stepped up and completed the term of the position, and would remain in the role as a 3L. To help assist younger students, David became a mentor in Pinckney Inn's Mentorship Program, where he currently mentors two students.
