Terry Ambassadors: Milan Patel, Ansley Maness, Brian Olsen

Last week, five members of PSE received top awards and elite positions within UGA's Terry College of Business. Exec members Ansley Maness (VP of Marketing) and Brian Olsen (VP of Special Events) as well as current PSE member Milan Patel all accepted the position of Terry Ambassador. A Terry Ambassador has a variety of duties within the college, including: campus tours, hosting Terry College events such as Terry Talks, and alumni events. Ansley, Brian, and Milan were of 30 students selected to become Terry Ambassadors this semester. It's a unique privilege, and PSE is proud to have these three members representing Gamma and the Terry College of Business.

In addition to these three members being selected as Ambassadors, two PSE members were presented prestigious awards from Terry. Senior and former VP of Professional Development Courtney Mccune was awarded the Finance Department Academic Excellence Award. The Academic Excellence award was granted to Courtney for her high level of academic achievement within the Finance Department of Terry. Courtney is a Finance major,  one of the most competitive and difficult majors Terry offers. In recognition of both her academic performance and leadership accomplishments, Courtney received the Who's Who Among Students in Colleges in Universities award as well as the Cecil Walker Family Scholarship. Courtney has been a member of PSE the longest of all 160 members, serving as an executive member for two terms. 

 

Recently joined PSE member Taylor Pouncey received the Tanner Award. This award is granted to the top salesperson within the Terry College of Business. Taylor won the Terry Sales Competition this past semester as a first-time participant and a new member of PSE.

PSE Invades Oktoberfest for Annual New Member Retreat

Every year, the "German-town" of Helen, GA hosts Oktoberfest-and for the past two years Gamma has joined the festivities for a celebration of food, music and most importantly PSE's newest members. 

Gamma loaded up 50 members and took a mini road trip to Helen. Designed to look like a traditional German city, complete with ginger-bread trim and mountain charm, Helen is the perfect setting for an Oktoberfest retreat. Gamma ate bratwursts and pretzels while dancing the night away to classic polka music--not entirely different from a night out in Athens. New and old members were able to mix and mingle German style, forming friendships to last a lifetime.
