Beta Alpha Psi earns 'Investing in Your Community' Award

Appalachian State University's Epsilon Kappa chapter of Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) -- an international honorary organization for financial information students and professionals -- has earned an award in the BAP Mid-Year Best Practices event.

Appalachian's BAP executive committee members -- President Melia Tinnin, VP Sloan Reid; Secretary Caleb Alston and Treasurer Maddisen Robinson -- prepared a presentation detailing the chapter's plan to survey Appalachian's business students about their experiences at recruitment events (on campus or remote) in order to learn more about students' perspectives on the inclusivity of the recruitment process.

Their work earned them third place in BAP's Investing in Your Community category, which recognizes student activities that benefit not only students, but also the greater community.

The awardees were announced via video by Deloitte. 

The honor comes with a $125 prize for the chapter.
