TU Business honor society presents fellowship award, establishes mentorship program

The Thomas University chapter of Sigma Beta Delta, the national honor society in Business, announced the establishment of a local student mentorship program and presented a fellowship award to a current graduate student during an event held Wednesday, Nov. 14, in the Forbes Building on TU’s Forbes Campus.

Joe Bale, a student in TU’s Master of Business Administration program, received a fellowship award from the national Sigma Beta Delta Board of Directors recognizing his work at TU and his community service. Bale currently serves as a member of TU’s Honor council and is a former member of TU’s Men’s Soccer Team. He is president of the TU Enactus Team, is Vice Chair for the Student Advisory Committee for Enactus USA and recently attended the World Cup in San Diego, California.

Also during the event, TU President’s Andy Sheppard announced that the TU chapter of Sigma Beta Delta is creating an executive mentorship program, which will be the first of its kind in the nation. The mentorship program will pair current TU Business majors with professionals in the community to provide students with role models who will guide them during the academic journey at TU from the time they first arrive on campus through graduation.

Guiding the executive mentorship program are three TU MBA alumni: Kathy MacQuirter, an Archbold Hospital executive and former president of the TU Alumni Board of Governors; Dr. Daryl Crenshaw, a local physician; and Linda Jones, a Flowers Foods Industries executive. In addition to leading the executive mentorship program, the three have also invited a 78 other TU MBA alumni to participate in the program as mentors. TU Business faculty Mina Haretos and Dr. Pauline Ray will also provide support for the program.
