Vienna, W.Va.—Ohio Valley University junior Curtis Thomson from Pompton Plains, NJ has been elected president of the school’s chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, a business society for business majors in colleges and universities in the United States with over 35,000 members nationwide. The OVU chapter is the largest chapter in the organization.
Dr. Dan Blair, OVU’s Dean of the School of Business, is the chapter’s faculty sponsor.
“I am not surprised that Curtis was elected president,” Blair said. He is a leader and he is an excellent student.”
Thomson transferred to Ohio Valley in the fall of 2016 from Delaware Technical Community College in Wilmington, DE. His major is Energy Management and Production Engineering.
“I was looking for a school with the kind of business program that OVU offers,” Thomson noted. “OVU is filled with the nicest people in the world. The coaches are great and my major is great. Plus, I was recruited to play lacrosse at OVU.”
Thomson is a defensive standout for the Fighting Scots men’s lacrosse program according to fourth-year head coach Greg Zecca.
“I am very excited that a member of my team has been elevated to such an important position in our college of business. I think it speaks to the quality of athletes we have at OVU,” Zecca said.
