Steven Acchione, Pennsylvania '17, is making a difference as CEO, Chaplain, and Scholar

Acchione is making an impact at home and abroad. He is the CEO of a student-run organization that provides microloans to local entrepreneurs, and his interest in building the global economy earned him a grant to study economic development in Sierra Leone. Since then, he's returned to launch a nonprofit that's working to create educational and economic opportunities in the country. As chaplain of his chapter, he's admired as a leader who treats everyone fairly and makes the effort to get to know each brother on a personal level. A 2015 Ruck Scholar, Acchione previously served as president and vice president of communications of his chapter. As a scholar, he is an economics major, boasting a 3.31 GPA.
