Locust Grove’s King Meetre a Regional Outstanding Student
Clayton State University accounting major Pamela Rickels, a native of Fayetteville, Ga., recently earned a National Outstanding Student Award from the Society for Advancement of Management (SAM).
Rickels was honored at the recent SAM National Conference in Orlando, Fla. SAM selects National Outstanding Students from a group of regional award winners. The national award, given annually to up to 15 students, is chosen from the recipients of the Regional Outstanding Student Awards who in turn are chosen from all United States and international SAM chapters.
In deciding on the awards, SAM considers a demonstrated commitment to management excellence, service to the society, chapter performance, and nomination by their SAM campus chapter advisor. Clayton State’s King Meetre (Locust Grove) was, along with Rickels, named a Regional Outstanding Student. Clayton State’s SAM chapter advisor is the School of Business’ Assistant Professor of Economics Dr. Reza Kheirandish.
“Take it from an accounting major, membership in SAM provides a great return on your investment,” says Rickels.
SAM is a non-profit organization founded in 1912 by colleagues of Frederick Taylor, an engineer often called the "Father of Scientific Management." The organization brings together academics, practitioners, and students to increase management skills and improve knowledge, performance, and leadership ability.
