Chapter President John White, a senior business major with a focus in healthcare administration, greeted the new inductees and introduced various presenters at the University of Houston System at Sugar Land, where UHV offers many of the programs. Several Gamma Beta Phi officers recited the Coat of Arms, Code of Ethics, and the objectives, expectations and retention standards of the society.
David Satava, a UHV business professor and the chapter’s adviser, reflected on the organization and the importance of a person’s character. The guest speaker was Dick Phillips, UHSSL associate vice chancellor.
The new inductees were formally initiated by reciting the membership pledge given by White. Simultaneously, at UHV’s campus in Victoria, Vice President Rick Navarro and Interim Secretary Christy Esse inducted 18 new Gamma Beta Phi members. After the ceremony, the new members and their families went to a reception held in their honor. This was an opportunity for the inductees to get acquainted with current members.
