Howard Payne University’s School of Business recently inducted Richland Springs native Kendra Brockman into the Sigma Beta Delta International Business Honor Society. The ceremony was held at HPU.
Brockman, an accounting and business administration double major, was one of 11 new members inducted. Sigma Beta Delta was founded in 1994 as a national organization for NCAA Division III universities and accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education. HPU’s chapter received its charter in 1999.
The honor society was established to recognize outstanding scholarship by students enrolled in institutions that have regional accreditation and to encourage and promote aspirations toward personal and professional improvement and a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind. Its activities are coordinated with those of Beta Gamma Sigma and Delta Mu Delta, business honor societies at NCAA Division I and II universities, to ensure that all outstanding students of business receive the recognition they deserve. Membership is for life.
Founded in 1889, HPU is a Christian, coeducational university offering a full array of liberal arts, pre-professional, and honors studies, as well as a graduate program to its students. Located on a residential main campus in Brownwood, Texas, and at three extension centers across the state, the university is affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas.
HPU was ranked #2 in the "Great Schools, Great Prices" among comprehensive bachelor’s degree-granting institutions in the Western region of the United States according to "America’s Best Colleges 2010," published by U.S. News & World Report. Additionally, for the seventh consecutive year, HPU was named in the "Top Schools" category.
