Lt. Rick Potts with Campus Police received the Servant Leader Award from the Department of Greek Life. Potts was recognized for building partnerships with fraternities and sororities.
Peter Barnes, president of Sigma Pi fraternity, said that Potts took time to get to know the community, set the boundaries and educate fraternity and sorority members on managing the risks of their actions through the Responsible Behavior program. Potts’ efforts to increase positive interaction between the Greek organizations and the police have made him the first person to call if something starts to go wrong, Barnes said. Before joining Campus Police, Potts served in the U.S. Marines and with the New Jersey State Police.
