Appalachian State University's chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma has been named a 2019-20 Honors Chapter -- the third highest level of recognition that a chapter can earn as part of the society's Chapter Honor Roll Program.
"I'm pleased we received Honors status," said Appalachian's BGS coordinator, Kathy Mann. "Due to the global pandemic, we weren't able to hold our induction ceremonies." Mann said these activities have helped the Walker College earn highest honors in the past.
"Congratulations to your chapter for achieving this outstanding distinction! We appreciate your team's diligent work and your continuing support of Beta Gamma Sigma," said Marielle G. Heijltjes, Chair of the BGS Board of Governors.
