Said event coordinator Sean Forde, "Dr. Hickey knocked it out of the park! He left everyone with food for thought on how they could be an Admired Man"
"Made me appreciate the qualities of my husband,' said a departing woman attendee.
"Enjoyed reflecting back on my own behavior," noted a senior attendee.
Inspired by the admirable men he has encountered in his own life, Dr. Chris L. Hickey Sr. set out to discover the specific qualities that cause a man to be respected, through thousands of questionnaires, personal surveys, and interviews. And the results were overwhelming, showing clear trends in the characteristics of those men-a collection of behaviors that create near-universal admiration among family, friends, students, and colleagues.
The results of this research can be found in Admired Man-Why?, a must-read for boys, men, fathers, and anyone who has ever wondered what it takes to truly be an admired man.

ABOUT Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Kappa Delta Sigma Chapter
From its inception, the Founders conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver services to the general community. Rather than gaining skills to be utilized exclusively for themselves and their immediate families, they held a deep conviction that they should return their newly acquired skills to the communities from which they had come. This deep conviction was mirrored in the Fraternity's motto, "Culture For Service and Service For Humanity". Learn more at http://pbskds1914.wix.com/kappadeltasigma
