Howell named regional director of Epsilon Pi Tau international honor society

BOONE—Kevin Howell, associate professor in the Thomas W. Reese Center for Graphic Arts and Imaging Technology in Appalachian State University’s Department of Technology, has been elected to a three-year term as Region 2 director for Epsilon Pi Tau (EPT), the international honor society for technology professionals.  His term of office begins July 1.

“Kevin’s past experiences and commitment to extend Epsilon Pi Tau recognition to many deserving students and professionals in the fields of technology are greatly appreciated,” said Jerry C. Olson, executive director of EPT.

Epsilon Pi Tau recognizes academic excellence of students in fields devoted to the study of technology and the preparation of practitioners for the technology professions. Epsilon Pi Tau also extends the honor of membership and advancement activities to outstanding practitioners in the technology professions, scholars with exemplary research interests in technology in society and/or persons who have significantly supported or advanced technology professions. All prospective members from these groups must meet Epsilon Pi Tau professional and leadership performance criteria.

EPT chapters and groupings for at-large members worldwide are divided into five geographic regions. Members in each region nominate and vote on candidates for region directors to represent the interests of chapters and members in the region and serve as a primary conduit for communications and information.

The regional directors, along with a representative of members-at-large and two-year community and technical colleges, represent and serve the regions on a seven-member Board of Directors for the organization. Howell’s region covers the southeastern United States, the Caribbean islands and Africa.
