Waynesburg University’s chapter of the Sigma Beta Delta International Honor Society was recently selected as an outstanding chapter for the 2015-2016 academic year. Out of 250 chapters, the selection committee chooses just three chapters each year for this distinction.

The Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society is made up of business, management and administration students. To be selected as an exceptional chapter, the society had to meet certain criteria, including induction rate, exceptional administration involvement and an extensive fellowship application submitted in the spring.

The Waynesburg University chapter was commended for their exemplary performance in chapter operations and administration.

“For us to receive an award that is based on exemplary performance in chapter operations and management shows the students that we, as faculty members, hold ourselves to the same high standards of achievement as we hold them,” said Neeley Shaw, chapter advisor for Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society and instructor of business administration. “The award is a testament to the hard work and dedication we have to our students in the business department.”

Anthony Bocchini, president of Waynesburg University’s chapter of the Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society and professor of business administration, and Shaw, began working on expanding their membership in the spring of last year.

Bocchini and Shaw are committed to growing the chapter and continually holding their students to a level of excellence they know they can achieve.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
