NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR – TAKE 2

Dr. Suzanne Rupp Appointed to Lead Pi Gamma Mu's Professional Staff

Suzanne RuppPi Gamma Mu's international Board of Trustees has appointed Dr. Suzanne Rupp to the position of international executive director, effective February 3.

Dr. Rupp will take the place of Nancy T. Wiebe, whom the board had appointed in October to the position of executive director, effective January 1, but who reconsidered, citing her attachment to her current employer.

A native of Winfield, Kans., Dr. Rupp will be leaving the position of manager of organizational partnerships at the Professional Studies division of Southwestern College in Winfield.  Pi Gamma Mu was founded at Southwestern College in 1924 by Dr. Leroy Allen, head of the Economics Department and dean of the College of Liberal Arts.  Before going to work for Southwestern College, Dr. Rupp spent eight years in the corporate sector, including six years as a pharmaceutical/medical sales consultant for Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals.

She earned a B.S. degree in psychology from Kansas State University, an M.S. degree in clinical psychology from Fort Hays State University in Kansas, and M.S. and Psy.D. degrees in clinical psychology from Baylor University in Texas.  She is a member of the Phi Eta Sigma freshman honor society, the Psi Chi psychology honor society, and the Golden Key and Phi Kappa Phi interdisciplinary honor societies.

Dr. Rupp is also an accomplished artist, creating highly regarded paintings using oil-based paints.  She has exhibited her work at art fairs including Art in the Park in Winfield and the Cooper Young Festival in Memphis, Tenn.  Other hobbies include playing the banjo and spending time with her two sons, Michael, 6, and Henry, 4.

"I am impressed with Pi Gamma Mu's purpose to improve scholarship in the social sciences, to inspire social service to humanity, to engender sympathy toward others, and to supplement and support existing social science organizations," Dr. Rupp said.  "To achieve these goals, a team of dedicated individuals working together is necessary.  I am excited to become a key part of this team."

Pi Gamma Mu international president Barry D. Friedman stated that the international board has an enormous amount of confidence in Dr. Rupp, and welcomes her arrival as the honor society's new executive director.  He added that he fully appreciates Nancy Wiebe's decision to remain at her current post.  "Pi Gamma Mu looks forward to a great year in 2014 with Suzanne Rupp, Beth Biddle, and Angela Shear at our international office," Dr. Friedman said.  "They are deeply committed to Pi Gamma Mu.  All members of our honor society will receive top-notch service when they need assistance or information."
