Thirteen Lander University business students and one Lander University faculty member were inducted into the international honor society Beta Gamma Sigma during a ceremony this week.

To qualify, students must be in the top ten percent of their class. Faculty members and community business leaders are inducted based on their commitment to Lander and the College of Business.

Professor of Business Administration Dr. Mike Shurden, who serves as president of the Lander chapter, told the inducted students they would put their Beta Gamma Sigma membership on their resumes "for the rest of your life." He called them "the best of the best."
