Lehigh Valley campus honors business students
An invitation into Sigma Beta Delta is one of the highest recognitions that a business student can achieve. To be inducted into this organization a student must be ranked academically in the upper 20 percent of their class. To celebrate the efforts of those students achieving a high level of academic excellence, the local Sigma Beta Delta chapter inducted ten Penn State Lehigh Valley students. An honors reception and induction ceremony was held on Wed., April 9, at the Lehigh Valley campus in the art gallery. In addition to business faculty and staff, friends and family were present to witness the induction of new members.
The International Society of Sigma Beta Delta was established in 1994 to honor scholastic achievement in higher education. The purpose of the society is to encourage and recognize achievement of business, management and administration students.
