Update #4 (April 8, 2019): Phi Sigma Phi is proud to announce a new partnering organization that will be providing a super cool item for LDA this year.

John’s Crazy Socks is a father-son venture inspired by co-founder John Lee Cronin, a young man with Down syndrome. John’s affinity for crazy socks paired with his love of making people smile made their mission clear: they want to spread happiness.

“We have a social mission and a retail mission, and they are indivisible. We want to show what is possible when you give someone a chance. Every day, we demonstrate what people with intellectual disabilities can do. And we believe in giving back: we donate 5 percent of our earnings to the Special Olympics as they’ve played a vital role in John’s development. We continue to expand our charity partners by offering and creating socks with specific ‘awareness’ themes, such as our Autism Awareness Socks and Down Syndrome Awareness Socks.”  – John Lee Cronin and Mark X. Cronin

We hope you are as excited as we are to wear these special Phi Sigma Phi socks, designed just for you by John’s Crazy Socks!

Update #5 (April 11, 2019): We are excited to announce the first exciting guest speaker for LDA 2019! Leon Quan hosts challenging conversations on service, leadership, and value. Drawing from presentations delivered all over the country Leon explores Insights on Brilliance. Gleaned from his 30 summers of service, audiences explore their own inventory of skills, audacity, and guiding voices to influence their time and place. As the author of the book One Second To Think- Leon crafts conversations to conceptualize personalized goals for thinking creatively, living principally, and loving brilliantly. Leon will bring a powerful message to our event in August!
