Beta Theta Pi celebrates Pi Day with contests

By Rylee Seavers | Broadcast Reporter

Beta Theta Pi marked mathematical Pi Day with pie eating and baking contests on Fountain Mall.

Participants in the pie eating contest had five minutes to eat their pies without using their hands.

The winner of the pie baking contest was determined by a panel of three judges: basketball super fan and Port Orchard, Wash. senior Hayden Johnson, baseball head coach Steve Rodriguez and first gentelman Brad Livingstone.

Cuero senior Sam Rojas, organizer of the event, said all proceeds from the event would go to benefit Beta Theta Pi’s philanthropy, Mission Waco.

“The idea is that it will become an annual thing and every three one four, we will have a Pi Day,” Rojas said.
