LACEY, Wash. – Saint Martin's University's local chapter of the Sigma Beta Delta International Business Honor Society, formally installed April 2015, will be inducting its first charter members on September 24, 2015.

Approximately ten years ago, Sigma Beta Delta was created as a business honor society for institutions with regional accreditation. Sigma Beta Delta has now established over 284 chapters in 46 states, with one international institution.

The purpose of the society is to encourage and recognize scholarship and accomplishments among students in Saint Martin's School of Business, to encourage and promote aspirations toward personal and professional development, and to promote a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind.

Candidates for a bachelor or master degree in the School of Business who rank in the upper 20 percent of their class and have completed at least half of the degree program in which they are enrolled are invited for membership. While almost 300,000 students receive bachelor or master degrees in business each year, only about 4,000 are inducted into lifetime membership in Sigma Beta Delta.

The Saint Martin's University School of Business congratulates the following students who have accepted invitation for membership in 2015:
