Mars Crater Named After Phi Beta Delta

In hopes of a future chapter on Mars, a Martian crater has been named after Phi Beta Delta!
Dr. Paul Rich, former President of Phi Beta Delta, has donated to name a Mars crater after Phi Beta Delta.
This puts PBD on the final frontier! Many thanks to Dr. Rich for his continuing support of Phi Beta Delta.
