Gamma Beta Phi Chooses BSU’s Helena Taylor As Its New National Director of Operations

The Gamma Beta Phi National Executive Committee has announced that Helena Taylor, Educational Outreach Counselor at Bluefield State University, is the GBP Society’s new Director of Operations. Taylor, who served as the Bluefield State Chapter Advisor for Gamma Beta Phi, has been associated with the Society for nearly 20 years. 

“We look forward to supporting her vision to further the Society’s founding pillars of character, service, and leadership,” noted the official announcement from Gamma Beta Phi’s national headquarters in Knoxville, TN.

A 2010 graduate of Bluefield State, Taylor was a student chapter member of the Society, serving as historian, secretary, and vice president.  “The BSU Student Support Services showed me how to become a better student, and I was able to serve as a tutor for other students,” she said.  “After graduation, I accepted a position on the BSU Student Support Services staff, and I became a Gamma Beta Phi Chapter Advisor five years ago.”

Taylor served two years as a chapter advisor member on the GBP National Executive Committee.  The BSU student chapter has received recognition as the “Exemplary Chapter” and a “Distinguished Chapter” multiple times during the past five years. 

When Gamma’s national office announced it was accepting applications for its Director of Operations position, Taylor was encouraged by BSU Academic Success Center Director Carolyn Kirby and Educational Outreach Counselor Scott Pitt to apply.

As Gamma Beta Phi Society’s Director of Operations, Taylor will work with Gamma’s student chapters throughout the nation, visit individual chapters, and support efforts to create chapters at local colleges and universities where none have been established.  “As an undergraduate, I became more confident and outgoing,” she noted.  “I’m excited to help other chapters and students, passing forward the blessings I received through the Society as a student, chapter advisor, and representative.“
