Delta Mu Delta Banner

Athens State University’s Delta Mu Delta Honor Society was recently named as a Star Chapter by the international organization for business students. Star chapters are selected based on accomplishments for the 2013-2014 academic year and the Athens State chapter is one of twenty recipients nationwide.

Star chapters are recognized for inducting either at least 80% of its eligible candidates or more candidates than the previous year, participating in the scholarship program, and completing a community-service project or business-related activity on campus. The Athens State chapter was also noted as the most award-winning Star Chapter in the organization’s history with 13 annual recognitions.

“It was an honor for this active group to have even been nominated for Delta Mu Delta’s award of merit,” states Athens State President Bob Glenn. “The students and faculty advisors have made Delta Mu Delta a true Athens States success story.”

Delta Mu Delta was founded at New York University in 1913 to recognize and reward superior scholastic achievement of students with concentrations in Business Administration. The Athens State chapter was originally formed in 1970 with Professor Gene Ermert being its inaugural faculty adviser. The chapter has grown to be one of the largest and most active chapters within the national organization.

The Athens State University Delta Mu Delta Chapter is housed within the College of Business. The advisors are Professors Kim Bell and Kim Roberts.
