Dr. Gayle Randall of the Angelo State University business faculty, also the faculty advisor for ASU’s chapter of the Delta Sigma Pi (DSP) professional business fraternity, has been named the 2021-22 National Chapter Advisor of the Year by the DSP national office.
Randall has been a member of DSP 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 eight 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.
“This award speaks volumes about our students and the impact they strive to make each day,” Randall said. “They have always enjoyed celebrating each other, but this time they surprised me with their heartfelt nomination packet. I am truly honored to serve our beloved Eta Theta chapter and completely filled with gratitude to our brothers, who continue to amaze me by going above and beyond every day.”
This year, the ASU chapter won two South Central Province Awards for Outstanding Financial Operations and Outstanding Scholastic Development. The South Central Province includes 30 DSP student chapters at colleges and universities in Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri and Oklahoma.
