ASU's Business Fraternity Wins National Award


SAN ANGELO, TX -- (Press Release)

Angelo State University’s Eta Theta chapter of the Delta Sigma Pi national professional business fraternity received the 2017-18 Most Improved Collegiate Chapter Award at the recent 2018 Delta Sigma Pi LEAD School professional development conference in Dallas.

Thirty-three ASU student chapter members attended the LEAD (Leadership and Excellence Academy for Deltasigs) School and accepted their chapter’s first national award since 1985. The ASU chapter won the national award over close to 300 collegiate chapters nationwide – and also won several regional and provincial awards, including:

Most Improved Collegiate Chapter – South Central Province

Outstanding Scholastic Development – South Central Province

Most Improved Collegiate Chapter – Southwest Region

Outstanding Scholastic Development – Southwest Region

The South Central Province includes 30 Delta Sigma Pi student chapters at colleges and universities in Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri and Oklahoma. The Southwest Region includes student chapters at ASU, Baylor University, Texas Christian University, University of North Texas and the University of Texas-Arlington, as well as a general Dallas Area alumni chapter.

Additionally, the ASU chapter was recognized for being an accredited chapter, having the largest membership growth, bringing the biggest student contingent to the conference, and providing the most donated items for the designated nonprofit organization, Ronald McDonald House. The ASU students who attended the LEAD School also paid a portion of their own expenses, with assistance from ASU’s Student Organization Leadership Fund and Norris-Vincent College of Business.

ASU’s Eta Theta chapter has more than 60 members. The faculty advisor is Gayle Randall, senior instructor in management and marketing, and the president is Cody Vasquez of Midland.

The ASU chapter was also honored on campus this spring at the Student Government Association’s 2017-18 Rammy Awards.
