West Georgia Technical College inducted 12 students in the Kappa Beta Delta Honor Society on March 26. The student organization is an honor society for the Associate Degree business major students associated with Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
“We are proud of the dedication and academic excellence these students have shown,” said interim president Pat Hannon. “Their hard work and perseverance in the classroom is highly commendable. These traits will serve them well in their future endeavors.”
The inductees are April Argo of Douglasville, Susan Blanchard of Temple, Tanya Carver of Carrollton, Danna Dellaperuta of Newnan, Robert Folds of LaGrange, Yvonne Heslop of Douglasville, Chante Hill of Roanoke, Ala., Navit Hill of Roanoke, Ala., Matthew Pair of Buchanan, Catherine Robinson of Carrollton, Ashley Smith of Sharpsburg and Yvonne Waddle of Tallapoosa.
Kappa Beta Delta was established in 1997 by the ACBSP as a national honor society to recognize students in accredited associate degree granting institutions for their high academic achievement in business programs. The West Georgia Technical College chapter of Kappa Beta Delta is the only active chapter in Georgia.
To be eligible for membership, students must rank in the upper 20 percent of students pursuing business degrees at the time of invitation to membership, have completed a minimum of 15 semester hours of credit, of which six are in business subjects toward the degree program and have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. As members of Kappa Beta Delta, students are eligible for lifetime recognition, networking opportunities and scholarships.
“Each KBD inductee exhibits excellence in the classroom, and employers recognize such dedication will transfer into successful careers,” said Babs Russell, dean of the West Georgia Technical College School of Business and Public Services. “We are extremely proud of each of these students and congratulate them on their success!”
