WILMINGTON, DE -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/13 -- Jessie Nemessi, a student at the University of Northern Iowa, was awarded the Vector Marketing Scholarship in the amount of $1,500 at the recent Pi Sigma Epsilon (PSE) national sales conference held April 2 - 7 in San Diego. Vector Marketing is the single-level direct sales division of Cutco Cutlery Corporation, the largest manufacturer of high-end kitchen cutlery in North America. PSE is the only national collegiate professional, co-educational fraternity for marketing, sales, and management.
The Vector Marketing Scholarship is awarded to a student who has demonstrated a commitment to community service and intends to pursue a career in sales. Nemessi, a marketing major, has been a member of PSE since October 2011. She became president of PSE's Epsilon Theta chapter in January and will serve as president through the end of 2013. Epsilon Theta recently won PSE's Top Gold Chapter, the organization's highest chapter honor.
In September 2012, Nemessi served as project manager for a 5K charity run around the University of Northern Iowa's campus. The run raised $6,800 for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital and received second place out of all service projects among all PSE chapters nationally.
"I am so grateful to have received the Vector Marketing Scholarship," said Nemessi. "I firmly believe that service to others is why we succeed in business and life. Helping others is the first step in succeeding ourselves. To me, Vector Marketing Corporation symbolizes these values."
"Vector Marketing is proud to serve as a corporate partner of Pi Sigma Epsilon and to present several awards, including the Vector Marketing Scholarship, to many of its deserving collegiate members," said Helen Brown, Vector Marketing Corporation's academic outreach manager. "PSE is instrumental in shaping tomorrow's sales and marketing leaders, and it is an honor to be a part of that process and to watch these outstanding students grow."
