Pi Omega Pi places second at national competition

The Beta Chapter of Pi Omega Pi at Northwest Missouri State University earned second place in the 2013 national chapter competition, for which winners were announced April 17 in Los Angeles.

The competition results are based on reports submitted about chapter projects at the local, community and national levels. Beta Chapter members assist with the District I Future Business Leaders of America Conference on the Northwest campus each February in addition to preparing an annual alumni newsletter.

The Beta Chapter also received recognition for its 90 years as an organization, making it the oldest active chapter in the nation. Dr. Nancy Zeliff, professor in Northwest’s Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Information Systems, also was recognized for 25 years of service as the chapter’s sponsor. 

Members of the Beta Chapter are Kirsten Applegate, Jacob Brawner, Kelsey Butler, Kevin Dodson, Marcus Grudzinski, Madeline Newman, Rachael J. Simmons and Amy Wimer.

Pi Omega Pi is a national business education honor society. It is designed to create a fellowship among teachers of business subjects, create and encourage interest and promote scholarship in business education, encourage civic responsibility, foster high ethical standards in business and professional life among teachers of business, and teach the ideal of service as the basis of all worthy enterprise.
