The Beta Gamma Sigma society in the Wright State University Raj Soin College of Business has been recognized as a Highest Honors Chapter in 2019–20 by the national academic honors society.
Only 21% of the chapters nationwide received the prestigious honor. The Wright State chapter was one of three of the 15 Ohio chapters to achieve the status.
Logan Rex, president of the Wright State chapter, said the national recognition is a testament to the student leaders who are committed to engaging business students and guidance from adviser Shu Schiller, associate dean and professor of information systems.
“Our organization is filled with members who are constantly striving to do great things academically and on campus,” Rex said. “I am very excited about this honor and hope to continue to lead our chapter to high honors.”
Rex, of Spencerville, is a junior accounting and finance major with concentrations in business analytics and financial services. He would like to pursue a career as a personal financial adviser, starting in an established office and then potentially opening his own advising business.
