Greetings from your O Zone


Welcome Region II Family,



The Region II executive board and I would like to welcome you to our family! My name is Malik Thompson. I am a junior at Virginia State University and I am grateful to serve as your 2017-2018 O Zone Coordinator. My goals this year, within the this zone, are to increase cross chapter communication, zone collaboration events, and community outreach.


One of my significant goals for the upcoming year is to increase cross-chapter communication. Many ideas can be created from a collected foundation and as a member of this society, I plan on giving us the basis to create a uniform ground for communication. Another goal is to increase zone collaboration events. The importance of zone collaboration is giving our members the experience of networking with other members in a different setting. Also, I want to increase NSBE’s presence in each of our communities. “It takes a village to raise a child” so trust and believe the time to start giving back is now. We all come from different walks of life, but at the end of the day, to be truly successful, one must create hope in their community in every way possible.


As a united front, we can bring the O Zone back to its former glory and excel past the stars. When I look around at my fellow peers, colleagues, and students, I see the potential to achieve every obstacle placed in front of us. With our mission and a strategic plan to increase the number of black engineers, I believe we are fully equipped to grow the NSBE presence throughout Virginia. I have 100% faith that this year will be the greatest yet for the O Zone, Region II, and the Society.
