Angelo State Business Prof Wins National Service Award
November 07, 2019
Gayle Randall, an Angelo State University alumna and member of the management and marketing faculty, received the Order of the Silver Helmet Award from the national Delta Sigma Pi professional business fraternity at the organization’s recent LEAD School in Kansas City, Mo.
The Silver Helmet Award is presented to Delta Sigma Pi alumni with at least 25 years of membership and a record of support and service to the fraternity. Fewer than 500 Delta Sigma Pi alumni throughout the U.S. have received the award since it was initiated in 1979.
Randall has been a Delta Sigma Pi member since 1988 when she was initiated into ASU’s Eta Theta student chapter as an undergraduate. She has also been the faculty advisor for the ASU chapter for seven years and guided it to the 2017-18 National Most Improved Collegiate Chapter Award and the 2018-19 R. Nelson Mitchell National Outstanding Collegiate Chapter Award.
“A good chapter advisor can make a world of difference to a chapter and is one of our most important volunteer positions,” said Tricia Smith, grand president of Delta Sigma Pi. “So it is especially exciting to be able to present the Silver Helmet Award to one of our chapter advisors.”
An ASU faculty member since 2006, Randall is a senior instructor for the Department of Management and Marketing in the Norris-Vincent College of Business. In addition to her regular teaching load, she teaches freshman Signature Courses and annually leads a study abroad trip to Europe. She is a member of numerous university initiatives and is active in campus activities ranging from recruiting events to Homecoming Week and Ram Jams.
Her teaching and service have also earned Randall multiple other awards from ASU and Delta Sigma Pi, including:
- 2019 Southwest Region Advisor of the Year, Delta Sigma Pi
- 2019 Distinguished Faculty Achievement Award, ASU Alumni Association
- 2018 Faculty Excellence in Service Award, ASU Norris-Vincent College of Business
- 2017 Faculty Advisor of the Year, Delta Sigma Pi
- 2016 Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award, ASU Norris-Vincent College of Business
Off campus, Randall serves as president of the San Angelo Cadillac Dealers Advertising Association and a vice president of Randall Motors Inc. She is an active participant in the San Angelo Business Plan Competition, Leadercast Women and the Leadership San Angelo Alumni Association.
A former conference and regional champion for the ASU Rambelles cross country team, Randall earned her Bachelor of Business Administration and MBA degrees from ASU.
