Business honor society receives top honor
CCU’s chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS), the international honor society for collegiate business students, was recently named a 2016 Gold Chapter in the organization’s annual competition among more than 560 collegiate chapters. The gold chapter is the highest honor that a BGS chapter can receive. This is the second time CCU’s chapter has received this honor, which includes a $1,500 scholarship; the first time was in 2013.
“Winning the gold award is an incredible achievement for CCU,” said Cara Scheuer, BGS chapter adviser in the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration. “I am especially proud of our 2015 BGS student officers Matt Alexander, Brittani Crawley, Hannah Hardee, Jessica Hughes, Ashton Rider and Chapter President Nicole Boyle for their leadership and commitment to the success of our chapter and its members.”
“This is an achievement the Wall College is very proud of, and it reflects the hard work of our chapter advisers and student members,” said Barbara Ritter, dean of the Wall College of Business.
CCU’s BGS chapter was established in 1999. The mission of the society is to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business and to recognize personal and professional excellence in the practice of business.
