CORVALLIS - An Oregon State University graduate from Waialua, Hawaii has earned recognition as the Outstanding Management Student for 2002 from the university's College of Business.

Maile M. Brown, who received her bachelor's of science degree, summa cum laude, in business administration this month (June), was honored based on faculty recommendations that praised her academic skills as well as campus and community leadership activities.

During her time at OSU, Brown earned a spot on the university's scholastic honor roll, as well as being honored with the Glenn L. Jackson scholarship, which honors the memory of Jackson, an Oregon businessman who served 17 years as chairman of the State Highway Commission.

Brown also received the Helen Mae Cropsey Memorial Scholarship, established in 1978 by Myron Cropsey, OSU professor in agricultural engineering, in memory of his wife.

The management option in OSU's College of Business helps prepare students for careers as managers and supervisors in goods-producing and service enterprises. Studies focus on management systems, personnel and quality. Students completing the option often pursue careers in law, urban and regional planning, public services administration and health care administration.
