40 under 40 — Charles Madon
Alpha Psi, 2010 — Recognized in: 2018
Charles Madon was an active brother at the Alpha Psi chapter during an extremely pivotal time in the chapter’s life. At the time, Alpha Psi was a smaller chapter on the McGill campus, but with the help of Charles and a number of other brothers, it eventually grew to the strong chapter we know today. Charles spent six years on the Kids for Kids charity gala organizing committee in Montreal supporting the Montreal Children’s hospital, raising between $50k-100k each year. Upon graduating in 2010, Charles volunteered on the Alpha Psi Elders Board of Directors, which culminated in two years as president (2014-16). During that time, he reorganized the elder chapter, brought fresh life onto the elder board, and led the chapter in winning seven consecutive Gold Chapter awards and five McElroy Order of Excellence awards. He also met individually with members of the active chapter to provide career advice, CV review and interview preparation.
“I was officially initiated into the Alpha Psi chapter in fall 2006, but in truth I had lived with part of Zeta Psi ever since the age of six when my father first gave me his Zete hat. He was truly my brother and father (BroFa) and gave me as much guidance during my early days as any brother could have.”
