K-State chapter of Beta Alpha Psi named a Superior Chapter by national organization

By Brent Fritzemeier

In recognition of its outstanding efforts during the 2016-2017 academic year, the K-State Epsilon Theta chapter of Beta Alpha Psi has been named a Superior Chapter award recipient from the national organization's board of directors at their 2017 annual meeting.

"On behalf of the Beta Alpha Psi board of directors, I would like to congratulate Professor Jane Bloodgood and the Epsilon Theta chapter on their outstanding efforts during the 2016-2017 academic year," said Sandra Richtermeyer, national president of Beta Alpha Psi. "Recognition as a Superior Chapter is a significant accomplishment. Under the leadership of Professor Bloodgood, the Epsilon Theta chapter has far exceeded the baseline requirements of Beta Alpha Psi and has excelled in the areas of academics, professionalism, and leadership."

Founded in 1919, Beta Alpha Psi is an honor organization for financial information students and professionals. There are more than 300 chapters on college and university campuses with more than 300,000 members initiated since Beta Alpha Psi's formation.

Along with its Superior Chapter designation, the K-State chapter was awarded $500 from KPMG and the KPMG Foundation at the annual meeting in Anaheim, California. Also at the meeting, Ashley Knoll, K-State Beta Alpha Psi president, was part of the winning team in "Project Run With It," which awarded the chapter an additional $1,000 prize.
