Recently Hodges University inducted 21 new members into the Hodges Chapter of Sigma Beta Delta, an international honor society for business, management and administration.
Chapter Officer Dr. Joseph Heinzman presided over the induction of the candidates, including University namesakes Earl G. Hodges and Thelma T. Hodges, who were inducted as honorary members. The Hodges’ were each presented with a beautifully framed certificate, lapel pin, and green honor stole to commemorate the event. This was the school’s fourth annual induction ceremony, which included a social gathering, speaker, and student and faculty inductions.
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 Cynthia Anderson, Jordan Brandt, Chad Coleman, James Cooper, Stanislava Crittenden, Bobbi Jo Edwards, Diana Giraldo, Patrick Hoffman, Amy Irawan, Matthew Klein, Lisa Kopfensteiner, Ira Malamut, Lauren Margiotta, Jessica Pautz, Virginia Ross, Patricia Spigner, Robert White, Cynthia Young and Dr. Gene Landrum.
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.
