Patrick Hawbecker is a senior at the University of Texas in San Antonio in the College of Liberal and Fine Arts with a major in Art and a cumulative grade point average of 3.95. He is an active member of the Gamma Phi Chapter of Delta Alpha Pi and serves as chapter secretary. In response to the first application question which relates to the benefits of participation in DAPi, Patrick wrote: “Armed with the three gifts of acceptance, equality, and self confidence, the stage is suitably set for Delta Alpha Pi members to strive for leadership. In the past when I joined other organizations, no one wished to accept me in a leadership role because I fell short of their expectations for one who could add beneficial skills to their objectives. Knowing that I no longer need to be perfect in order to contribute gave me the courage to fill the position of secretary.” Patrick also submitted an original poem entitled “You Taught Me; Now I Teach You” and artwork that demonstrates the interconnectedness of student members of Delta Alpha Pi. The members of the DAPi Scholarship Review Committee were impressed with Mr. Hawbecker’s creativity and dedication to Delta Alpha Pi and are pleased to award the 2020 scholarship to him.
