Danville Community College presented the Alpha Beta Gamma, Iota Zeta Chapter initiation ceremony at the historic Belmont Estate during the latter half of the spring semester.
Professor David Bonebright and associate professor Matt Nidiffer welcomed initiates, family and friends to the ceremony.
Members inducted were students enrolled in a business curriculum who have met the academic standards for acceptance into the society.
Alpha Beta Gamma is an international business honor society established in 1970 to recognize and encourage scholarship among college students in business curricula at community, junior and technical colleges. The society has more than 80,000 members from 200 member colleges across three countries.
The evening guest speaker was Charlie Adams, owner-operator of Belmont and professor emeritus of information technology with DCC. Adams shared with the attendees a short presentation on proper etiquette in formal business dinner settings. Betty Jo Foster, interim DCC president, gave congratulatory remarks and encouraged continuing academic achievement and community engagement to the newest Alpha Beta Gamma members.
