FARMINGTON - Thirteen Tunxis Community College business students and two business professors were inducted into Kappa Beta Delta, the honor society for business students, during a ceremony at Tunxis in November.
The new members of KBD are:
Andrew Albert of Wolcott, Connor Angers of Burlington, Lisa Calderoni of Bristol, Susan Caron of Bristol, Jacquelyn Corriveau of Meriden, Megan Fazzino of Southington, Madelin Gomez of West Hartford, Chil Liu of New Britain, Nina Mefford of Morris, Nicholas Petrucci of Plainville, Kathryn Schwartz of West Hartford, Molly Warnken of West Hartford, and Silvia Yannez-Solis of Bristol.
Business professors Guy Beeman and Nancy Grassilli were also inducted for their contributions and longstanding commitment to the business program.
KBD member institutions are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs to recognize the accomplishments of students in two-year business programs who are pursuing associate degrees. KBD also encourages students “to promote personal and professional improvement and to lead a life distinguished by honorable service to mankind.”
Mark Milewski, assistant professor of business administration at Tunxis, introduced the inductees and addressed the audience with remarks about KBD.
“You, as a member of Kappa Beta Delta, will be expected to live up to the name of our society,” Milewski said. “You have already proven your ability to excel in your academics. However, this quality of excellence is one that you should continue to implement as a lifelong trait.”
Students and professors inducted into the society received their certificates and tassels to be worn at graduation.
“As your faculty, we have recognized each of you as a leader academically, but we also know that you will rise to inspire and lead beyond the classroom - in your community, in your next educational endeavors, and in your future business careers,” said Amy Feest, business administration program coordinator.
