Grand Treasurer Ryan Ristau '14 with all the different guys in Kappa Sigma helped me learn to get along and work with a lot of different types of people. I think it's a lesson that has carried through my life and in the business world." Steve also learned the importance of asking questions. "The best thing young Kappa Sigs can do, whether they're in college still or starting their career, is to ask questions of more experienced people. Learn from them, ask which classes to take or which professors to look for, which to avoid. In business, asking questions will help you avoid pitfalls and guide you in a direction where you can be more successful." For 23 years, Steve has been working for Jost Chemical Co. He and his wife, Maureen, whom he met at Missouri S&T, live in Oakville, Missouri. Their daughter, Melissa, is a sophomore at Ursuline Academy. They are not sure if she is going to be an engineer, but they haven't stopped trying to convince her. Their son, Dan Ederle '14, is a freshman at Missouri S&T and pledged Beta-Chi. Steve is very proud and excited. "It had been several years since I had been back at the Beta Chi but when I returned for Homecoming 2014 and Dan's initiation, I really felt welcomed back. I was left with a feeling that Beta-Chi is still doing it right in finding great guys and great leaders."
