Alpha Beta Gamma Business Honor Society Inducts 40
Ceremony and celebration for new members and their guests

 

Ramapo- Rockland Community College’s chapter of Alpha Beta Gamma, the National Business Honor Society of Community and Junior Colleges, held their celebration dinner and induction ceremony on April 2, 2014. Forty student inductees and more than 70 guests were in attendance at the ceremony and dinner, held at the Comfort Inn Regency Banquet and Conference Center in Nanuet.

Membership in the honor society requires a 3.0 GPA and enrollment at RCC in one of the following degree programs: Business Administration, Accounting, International Business, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Cyber Security, Business/Office Technologies, Computer Networking, Hospitality & Tourism, or Paralegal Studies. Invitations to join the honor society were sent to 240 students who satisfied the academic criteria.

 

The members enjoy networking with local Rockland County businesses and attending presentations by community business leaders. They also enjoy opportunities to go on field trips to the New York Stock Exchange and the Museum of American Finance. Led by their faculty advisor, Professor Martin Lecker, the honor society members also participate in food, clothing and toy drives to benefit local non-profit institutions.

 

RCC chapter president Febin Bellamy says, “Alpha Beta Gamma membership offers the opportunity to network and collaborate with high achieving academic leaders who will be the business leaders of America's future. Together we can build the pathways towards a brighter tomorrow in all areas of business." An honors student in the MTS Honors Program, Febin is pursuing a liberal arts – math and science degree at RCC.

 

Febin is deeply committed to utilizing his skills and education to help the disadvantaged, and as Vice President of the not-for-profit Just Save One organization, he was able to attend this year’s Clinton Global Initiative University. At CGIU he attended workshops and sessions with innovative and dynamic speakers (including Bill Clinton) who inspired the dedicated young leaders from around the world. Just Save One was founded by several RCC alumni including Kennedy Ogoye, Sholom Gable, Carm Saint-Fort, Wilkenson Francois, and Kuldip Singh. Although JSO’s initial projects focused on helping those in need of potable drinking water, they have extended their global mission and are currently gathering medical supplies for a particularly destitute rural area in India.
