The Kappa Omicron chapter of Delta Sigma Pi (DSP) at Missouri State University received the Gateway Region Outstanding Professional Activities Award for the 2018-2019 year at the August biennial national convention.
The award is presented each year to the chapters that plan and implement effective and comprehensive professional development programs. Winning this award is a testament to the chapter’s overall excellence.
MSU DSP members participated in professional activities including corporate tours of Bass Pro Base Camp, Prime Inc., the YMCA and Pinnacle Sign Group.
The group also heard from professional speakers with the organizations such as Lowther and Johnson Law Firm, the Chamber of Commerce, Insurers of the Ozarks and Wiley Plus.
Vanessa Nimmo, senior marketing research major, is the current president of the Kappa Omicron chapter.
Nimmo served as vice president of professional activities in fall 2018 and Madison Moody served as vice president of professional activities in spring 2019. They planned and organized the professional development during the 2018-2019 year.
“Getting to listen to business men and women from the area has enhanced my knowledge of business and prepared me to go into the commercial world,” Nimmo said. “The professional development aspect of the Fraternity has been the most beneficial for me.”
Delta Sigma Pi develops principled business leaders for the future by training their members in professional skills, leadership, ethics and service.
