Jenny Terbrock, Christian Brothers University (CBU) senior Accounting major, has been named Delta Sigma Pi’s 2010 National Collegian of the Year. Her selection is a CBU first as it marks the second consecutive year that a member of the CBU chapter, Epsilon Psi, has received this national honor. Burton Bridges (Finance ’09) received the award last year. Terbrock and Bridges will make history when they sit on the National Board together for the 2010-2011 term and comprise the only collegians of the Board.
This award recognizes the top collegiate member of the business fraternity in the nation. Recipients serve as a voting member of Delta Sigma Pi’s Board of Directors for a two-year term and are eligible to receive a $5,000 scholarship for graduate school. Initially named the CBU chapter Collegian of the Year, Terbrock was then awarded the Mid-South Regional Collegian Award. Subsequently, she was selected as the Southern Provincial Collegian of the Year. Her final recognition as National Collegian of the Year, places her among the elite of more than 200 active collegiate chapters nationwide.
As only the third national recipient from the Southern Province, Terbrock recognizes that she will give back to the group that has influenced her. “It is an honor to be named the 2010 National Collegian of the Year,” Terbrock stated. “I cannot wait to be the voice of the collegiate brothers on the National Board for the next two years. Delta Sigma Pi has taught me the value of hard work, professionalism, and brotherhood. I am excited to have the chance to instill these values in our new brothers.”
The student chosen as National Collegian of the Year exemplifies values of Delta Sigma Pi such as leadership, commitment, professional development, dependability, honesty and integrity. Terbrock will address the fraternity at the national Grand Chapter Congress in Louisville, Kentucky in August 2011.
The International Fraternity of Delta Sigma Pi is a co-educational professional business fraternity. The CBU Chapter, Epsilon Psi, was founded in 1964. Dr. Robert Brittingham, CBU business professor and a founding member of the chapter, is the faculty advisor. In 2008, the CBU chapter was awarded the National Most Improved Collegiate Chapter Award. ###
