The Maryland Smith chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi drew multiple accolades at the world’s largest business fraternity’s 2022 Convention, held August 3-6 in Miami. The Smith chapter, represented by President Jean Han (’23) and Director of Pledge Education Ayman Bootwala (’24), received Outstanding Programming awards in the categories of Knowledge, Integrity and Unity.
Han says, “I am proud of the recognition that the chapter is receiving and grateful that I have had the opportunity to work with such a dedicated group of Executive Board members and Directors, who have worked passionately in their roles, enough so to be nationally recognized."
Also representing the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business at the conference was Center for Social Value Creation director and chapter advisor Nima Farshchi, (’14 and MBA ’20). “Given there are about 250 business school chapters internationally, it’s a big deal to win one of these five awards. But three such awards are huge – and a first for Smith.”
In addition to Han, Bootwala, and Farshchi, representing Smith at the conference was alumni Jane Azzinaro (’12), a strategy consulting manager for Kearney and member of the board of directors for Alpha Kappa Psi, as well as John LeVering (MBA ’07) a former chair of the board of directors for Alpha Kappa Psi.
