Organizational management student Omar Mejia has been named one of this year's "Fast 15" honorees by the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal.
The Fast 15 is designed to recognize a small, exclusive group of 20-something professionals on the fast track to success. Mejia, 28, is vice president and branch manager at Arvest Bank in Rogers. He'll graduate from JBU in 2014, then plans to continue on to graduate school.
Mejia is active in the northwest Arkansas community. He served as a volunteer for Rogers' Frisco Festival, and is active with the northwest Arkansas chapter of ALPFA, a leadership development organization for Latinos.
John Brown University’s mission is to provide Christ-centered education that prepares people to honor God and serve others by developing their intellectual, spiritual, and professional lives. At JBU, we understand that a traditional campus experience isn’t for everyone. That’s why we developed our Degree Completion Program, which integrates the unparalleled quality of a John Brown University education with the convenience of online or evening classes.
John Brown University is a private Christian university, ranked first in best value among Southern regional colleges by U.S. News & World Report and is listed as one of America’s Best Colleges by Forbes.
