SBU gives Psalm 15 award to Karamitros, Meusborn

BOLIVAR, Mo. — Southwest Baptist University’s College of Business and Computer Science presented its 2013 Psalm 15 awards to Aaron Meusborn of Sedalia, Mo., and Pearl Karamitros of Fort Worth, Texas, during the spring Psalm 15 lecture Feb. 28.

The College of Business and Computer Science teaches its students one of eight characteristics based on Psalm 15 — Integrity, Service, Respect, Charity, Faithfulness, Truthfulness, Humility, and Perseverance — each semester. The College also brings a professional individual to speak on the semester’s characteristic in his or her profession.

Intel Corp. employee Jeff Jackson, a 1991 SBU graduate, was the guest lecturer Feb. 28. He has been employed by Intel Corp. for 18 years, holding technical individual contributor roles as well as leadership positions in both product and research groups. He currently manages a team of research scientists in Intel's research and development labs. He received the Intel Achievement Award, Intel's highest employee award, in 2005 for his work and currently holds 10 patents.

The Psalm was divided into eight characteristics to relate to an average eight-semester college student. The Psalm 15 award is given to a male and a female senior who were selected by the COBACS faculty as having best demonstrated the Psalm 15 characteristics.
