The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) chapter at Missouri S&T was named NSBE Medium Chapter of the Year at the organization’s 50th annual convention, held March 20-24 in Atlanta.

The S&T chapter was recognized as the nation’s best chapter in the tier 2, or medium, category, competing against over 50 other chapters for the title. This is the second consecutive year that the S&T chapter has received this award.

“President Xzavier Rainey and Vice President Mohamed Elshiekh, along with the entire executive board, deserve commendation for their vision and execution of a plan to achieve such success,” says Shari Hill, assistant director for graduate admissions at Missouri S&T and chapter advisor for NSBE. “Their commitment to not only winning but also ensuring the sustainability and growth of the chapter is remarkable.”

NSBE was founded in 1975 to support and promote “the aspirations of collegiate and pre-collegiate students and technical professionals in engineering and technology.” The organization’s mission is “to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.” The organization has over 24,000 active members and 600 chapters in the U.S. and abroad.
