Beta Gamma Sigma program honors 12 graduates

In spring 2011 the business program of Missouri Western was accredited by the AACSB international, which allowed them to apply for the Beta Gamma Sigma program. The business program started up their initial chapter for the fraternity and was opened to the top ten percent of graduating students. According to traditional chapter guidelines, being in the program is the highest recognition a business student from any country can achieve. When accepted into the fraternity, you become a lifelong member and a lot of networking opportunities down the road become available. Dean of Craig School of Business Phillip S. Nitse feels that being in the fraternity opens up a lot of doors in the future for the programs members. He feels that the program is unique because it’s always good to be recognized for an achievement that you have accomplished. “This chapter is rather small,” Nitse said, “but we will like to find ways to bring more recognition to the students for the great job that they have done here at Western. They deserve it.” Nitse stated that this organization is open to all business majors and that even though the fraternity is based primarily on business; this program is similar to any other fraternity in the world. Assistant professor of the business department Beverly Payne is a member of the fraternity as well, and she feels that when students graduate and enter the working world, being in this fraternity is an additional item to the resume that shows distinction. “The Beta Gamma Sigma program opens doors for people,” Payne said. “This is an additional recognition that not too many people have, and I think it shows someone’s potential because in order to achieve this accomplishment, you have to be serious from the beginning.” Payne said that the program is significant simply because it is accredited. Being accredited was the reason why they are able to honor students for their hard work. From 2011-2012, 12 graduates have been recognized for their achievement of making the Top Ten Percent list for the fraternity. The graduates include Matthew Bergin, Kimberly Brown, Luke Crowther, Bryson Herbert, Amanda Keeling, Jacob Kerns, Michael McCullough, Taylor McEchern, Haley Siela, Sarah Shorter, Joshua Steltenpohl and Zachary Taul. Amanda Keeling will be graduating this spring, and she will be inducted into the Beta Gamma Sigma program April 26. Keeling stated that she was unfamiliar with the organization at first but after gaining more information about the fraternity, she decided that this was something that she wanted to be a part of. “Being recognized for this means a lot to me because I care so much about the school and business,” Keeling said. “Being able to say I am apart of Beta Gamma Sigma is a huge benefit because it sets me apart in the business world.”
