In December 2008, the Southeastern chapter of Phi Kappa Phi renamed its endowed scholarship in honor of retired English professor Lou Ballard. Ms. Ballard served as a chapter officer for 24 years -- as secretary from 1965-77, president-elect from 1983-85, president from 1985-87, and public relations officer from 1987-1995. She was named the chapters first "Distinguished Member" in 1996, the same year she retired after more than three decades on the Southeastern faculty and wrote a history of the Southeastern chapter for its 40th anniversary. Ballard received Southeastern's "President's Award for Excellence in Teaching" in 1995. She passed away in February 2009.
