Booth student qualifies for international business competition
O'Fallon native Lydia Farmer, a marketing and management major at Northwest Missouri State University, recently participated in the entrepreneur/business plan category at the 2009 Delta Epsilon Chi Missouri State Competition at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Farmer's third-place finish qualifies her for the International Delta Epsilon Chi competition, which will be held next month in Anaheim, Calif.
The collegiate version of DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America), Delta Epsilon Chi seeks to provide co-curricular educational opportunities for students who display an interest in marketing, management and entrepreneurship.
More than 14,000 students from 230 college campuses belong to the organization, which has chapters at community colleges, technical colleges and four-year colleges and universities nationwide.
Doug Russell, instructor of marketing and management, serves as sponsor of the Northwest chapter. The University's marketing and management department is part of the Melvin D. and Valorie G. Booth College of Business and Professional Studies.
