The Lycoming College chapter of Sigma Beta Delta (SBD) academic honor society inducted eleven students during a ceremony on April 18. The society consists of students majoring in accounting or business, ranked in the top 20 percent of their junior or senior class, with a GPA of 3.25 or higher. 

“Sigma Beta Delta was established at Lycoming College to honor students who have attained superior grades in the accounting or business programs,” said Heather Demshock, assistant professor of accounting at Lycoming College. “Each year, the top students are invited to join SBD. The faculty of both programs are very proud of their accomplishments.” 

Students inducted into the honor society are rewarded and recognized for their hard work during the ceremony and beyond. Having the distinction on their resumes sets them apart from their peers, and opens doors to annual fellowships provided through SBD.   

“Being inducted into SBD was an honor,” said Daniel Tierney ’18. “I am thrilled and proud that the College has recognized my academic achievements in this way.”  

This year’s student inductees included Rachel Duda ’19, Morgan High ’20, Chantelle Lutz ’19, Joseph Oquendo ’19, Lilya Renner ’19, Daniel Tierney ’18, Andrew Traxler ’19 and Cheng Yang ’19. Krishna Arnachellum ’19, Domonic Loffredo ’19 and Kelly McGinniss ’19 were inducted in asbentia.
