The Kappa Beta Delta (KBD) society at Craven Community College (Craven CC) inducted 15 students and one faculty member during a ceremony held in the AMC building Wednesday, April 18.
“This is indeed a distinct honor in recognition of your hard work and dedication in achieving your educational goals,” said Nanette Sanders-Cobb, Kappa Beta Delta advisor and business program instructor at Craven CC, as she addressed the inductees. “Induction in the honor society is a reward for your distinction in scholastic achievement. You are encouraged to continue to excel, achieving this quality of excellence in your education, career, and one that you continue to implement as a lifelong trait.”
For students to be inducted they must rank in the upper 20 percent of students pursuing a business degree, have completed at least 15 credit hours–with at least six of those being in the business working toward their degree–and have a minimum grade point average of 3.0. The criteria for faculty and staff entering KBD requires an affiliation with one of the accredited programs.
KBD provides many benefits for students, including scholarship and award opportunities, networking and training, a KBD pin and graduation stole.
