Sigma Beta Delta Chapter Holds Annual Induction
Recently Hodges University, formerly International College, inducted 22 new members into the Hodges Chapter of Sigma Beta Delta, an international honor society in business, management and administration.
Chapter Officer Dr. Joseph Heinzman presided over the induction of the candidates, including the first posthumous award in the history of the Society. The widow and son of the late J.R. Humphrey, a local inventor and entrepreneur, were on hand to accept the award on his behalf. Mr. Humphrey founded IPM, International Packaging Machines, and was a member of the Board of Trustees for the University since it was founded in 1990 as International College.
The new members were selected from approximately 800 fellow business, management, accounting and administrative students representing the best that the Kenneth Oscar Johnson School of Business at Hodges University has to offer. Inductees included Catherine Adorno, Theresa Anderson, Allison Benyon, Charles DiFelice, Anissa Ecken, Dana Fulker, Nelson Galeano, Tara Gangell, Anne Kilroy-Burik, Kenneth Lott, Diane Lupton, Gregory Robrahn, Jimmy Rodriguez, Estella Sanchez, Bonnie Scheuermann, Scott Tuttle, Yvonne Valiente, Kathryn Williams, John Meyer, Peter Karastamatis, and Aysegul Timur.
Student candidates must rank in the upper 20% of their class, have completed two years of undergraduate or one year of graduate work and be of good moral character. The Society recognizes students for outstanding scholarship and personal accomplishment and encourages and promotes aspirations toward personal and professional improvement and a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind.
The Society exists for charitable and educational purposes. It was established in 1994 to honor business, management and administration students who attained superior records in business programs in schools and colleges with regional accreditation.
