Beta Gamma Sigma Inducts 11 New Members; Honors Sis Brown
The Dalton State College chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma recently inducted 11 new members and honored local businesswoman and philanthropist Mary “Sis” Brown.
Beta Gamma Sigma is an international honor society serving business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, according to Dr. Donna T. Mayo, Professor of Marketing and Dean of the School of Business at Dalton State.
The society admits only the top 10 percent of business students and is, according to Mayo, “the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.” There are more than 650,000 members serving in more than 500 chapters around the globe, she said.
Mrs. Brown, co-founder of Brown Industries with her late husband, James, was recognized as Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter Honoree because “she exemplifies the values of BGS: honor, wisdom, and earnestness,” said Dean Mayo.Among the new inductees are students Susan Awad, Daniel Bryant, Mark Chapman, Jr., Sandra Esparza, Tawni Harris, Suzanne Oliver, Gary Rosser, Mitch Sanford, and Christopher Whaley. Dr. John M. Trussel, Dalton State Foundation Chair and Professor of Accounting, and Dr. Sandra Stone, Vice President for Academic Affairs were also honored with membership.
