South Dakota student wins Sell A Thon title at PSE regional
For winning the Midwest Regional title, Shatto received a trophy and an all-expenses paid trip to compete at the national Pro-Am in Orlando, Fla., in March 2011. The Pro-Am is Pi Sigma Epsilon’s premier individual competition that focuses on a student’s ability to sell a product or service in a real-life business situation. Shatto, a senior in the Beacom School of Business at South Dakota, is a marketing major with a minor in advertising. It’s the second consecutive year that he competed in the Sell-A-Thon.
“My only goal for the competition was to improve from last year’s performance at the National convention,” said Shatto, who is a graduate of Lincoln High School in Sioux Falls. “So by coming out as a finalist, I’d already won in my book.”
Pi Sigma Epsilon is the only national, co-ed, professional fraternal organization in sales, marketing and management. The Delta Mu chapter of PSE at South Dakota was re-chartered in October 2009, and has worked diligently at providing opportunities for Beacom School of Business students to serve the campus, learn professional skills, and meet professionals in business. In all, six members from South Dakota attended at the regional competition in DeKalb.
