Phi Kappa Alpha took home the sweepstakes trophy over the weekend at FHU’s 2024 Makin Music. The club lived out this year’s theme “Make Some Noise” as they snagged the top honors for the first time in seven years. See MUSIC, Page 7-A for the complete story.

Thousands of visitors flooded the Freed-Hardeman University campus April 5-6 eager to “Make Some Noise” for one of the biggest FHU events of the year. Makin’ Music 47 thrilled audiences over four performances full of original club shows, emcee entertainment, and host and hostess showstoppers. At the conclusion of Saturday evening’s closing show, Phi Kappa Alpha was awarded the coveted sweepstakes trophy for the first time in seven years. 
The winning show was created by a team of six hardworking student directors: Anniston McCall, Annie Simpson, Grady McCall, Derek Griffin, Cam Mann and Will Rawson.
“My favorite part was being in the middle of it all and seeing everyone’s faces,” said Anniston McCall. “As a director, obviously you want your show to win, but more than that, you want your cast to get to experience it more than you do for yourself.” 
This year’s club shows consisted of Chi Beta Chi’s “Washed Up,” Omega Chi’s “A Knight to Remember,” Phi Kappa Alpha’s “When in Doubt, Call the Scouts!”, Sigma Rho’s “Conflict in the Cosmos” and Xi Chi Delta’s “Hysmith High: Clash of ’02!” 
The clubs were judged in six distinct categories – choreography/blocking, lyrics, costumes, vocals, props/set design and entertainment value – and final awards were presented after Saturday evening’s show. Results of the awards are as follows: 
Choreography/blocking: first place – Phi Kappa Alpha, second place – Xi Chi Delta, third place – Omega Chi
Lyrics: first place – Phi Kappa Alpha, second place – Xi Chi Delta, third place – Sigma Rho
Costumes: first place – Xi Chi Delta, second place – Phi Kappa Alpha, third place – Sigma Rho

In addition, this year’s Spirit of Makin’ Music Award was presented to Omega Chi, and the Kids’ Choice Award (voted on by local school children) was given to Xi Chi Delta.
