MACOMB, IL - Western Illinois University senior management major Megan Pazdernick, of Grayslake, IL, is one of two national scholarship winners from the Sigma Iota Epsilon management honorary fraternity.

The scholarship award is worth $1,000 and requires that a student have a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or above.

"We are so proud to have a scholarship winner from Western Illinois University," said WIU management and marketing Instructor and Sigma Iota Epsilon Adviser Janice Gates. "Megan is a most deserving recipient of this scholarship."

Sigma Iota Epsilon was established at Western in 1971. The fraternity promotes scholastic excellence and cooperation between both academic and practical aspects of management. Only colleges that are AACSB accredited can have a Sigma Iota Epsilon chapter

Each year, the SIE National Office awards up to five $1,000 scholarships. Applicants are judged on their level of activity in Sigma Iota Epsilon and other University organizations, leadership interest and offices held, community service involvement and academic excellence.
