Denson Clark, 2021 Auburn Interfraternity Council President, was awarded an Undergraduate Award of Distinction from the North American Interfraternity Conference, a national association that recognizes fraternity leaders who excel in leadership and the execution and advancement of fraternal values. Clark is one of 12 honorees of this year’s award, which seeks to recognize fraternity men who have found in their experience an outlet for developing as both a leader and a better man.

As Interfraternity Council President, Clark served as primary leader and spokesperson for more than 3,000 men in 25 fraternities. During his term as president, Clark focused on mental health awareness among the fraternity community and led the revision of policies that support the more than 8,000 Auburn students who belong to Greek organizations.

Working with Denson as IFC President, I saw first-hand his ability to communicate a vision, activate a community and achieve results. Few leaders possess this ability to mobilize a team, and Denson did it as a college student,” said Lady Cox, associate vice president for Student Affairs. “It is rare to meet someone who is as universally respected, appreciated and admired by his peers as Denson is.”
