Forty students from Naugatuck Valley Community College were initiated into the Alpha Beta Gamma International Business Honor Society on March 9. In ceremonies held at the College’s Mainstage Theater, the inductees became members of the Tau Chapter of the society, pledging “in the conduct of our activities, truth shall be our quest, diligence our staff, and achievement our purpose.”

The program featured a welcome by Associate Professor and ABG Advisor Robyn-Jay Bage, M.P.A. and remarks by Irene Rios-Knauf, Ed.D., Dean of Academic Affairs, and Mitch Holmes, Director of Business and Professional Studies.

“Every year, I am delighted to see high-achieving students whom I have advised and taught receive this academic honor,” noted Holmes. “They arrive at the induction from one of 12 different academic majors, yet all have shown the grit and tenacity to excel in and out of the classroom. Each and every one of them makes Naugatuck Valley Community College proud.”

All ABG Tau inductees must demonstrate academic excellence by attaining a minimum 3.0 GPA, completing at least 15 credit hours, and being enrolled in a recognized business major at NVCC.

Alpha Beta Gamma was established by business professors in 1970 to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year business and professional college students. The society has initiated nearly 66,000 members across North America.
