Alexandria Airhart, an Advertising and Public Relations major from Warren, and Kevin Bell, an Accounting major from Austintown, represented the Williamson College of Business Administration at the Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum in Charleston, S.C., Feb. 2 to 5.

The event brings together student members from colleges and universities around the world for a chance to improve their leadership skills. A hands-on experience, the Student Leadership Forum challenges participants to examine questions such as, “What Kind of Leader Will I Be?”  Team-building exercises, social activities, networking and other activities make the Student Leadership Forum a positive step forward in the professional lives of participants.

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student can receive in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Only 5 percent of business schools worldwide have AACSB accreditation. Since the YSU Beta Gamma Sigma chapter was installed in 2000, 491 business students have been inducted into the organization.
