By Grace Mize – The Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society Alpha Lambda chapter at William Jewell has entered the spring 2017 semester under new leadership and excited to welcome new members.
At the fall 2016 meeting, four new officers were elected for the ensuing year: Kristin Agar, President; Lauren Berndt, Vice President; Madison Giles, Secretary; Rayna Downing, Treasurer. Additionally, Professor Beth Hazels has become the chapter’s new Faculty Advisor. In addition to helping Delta Mu Delta operations run smoothly, Professor Hazels teaches Business Law and Finance classes at Jewell. When asked about her goals in this new role, Hazels shared that she hopes to increase member involvement in chapter activities such as service projects and networking events.
Invitations for new members have recently been sent out to eligible students. Students are eligible to join Delta Mu Delta if they are a junior or senior and in the top 20 percent of students in Business, Accounting, and Economics majors. Membership in this chapter is the highest honor offered to students in the Department of Business and Leadership. Students who accept their invitation to join will be initiated on April 22nd at 1:00 pm.
Several scholarships have recently become available for current members to apply for. These scholarships are just one benefit of membership in Delta Mu Delta, as well as opportunities to network with chapter alumni and gain service experience.
The spring chapter meeting for new and existing members will be held during the first week of April.
