LC State business honor society inducts eight in inaugural event, including SBOE member Keough

LEWISTON, Idaho – Eight Lewis-Clark State College students, including Idaho State Board of Education member Shawn Keough, were part of the inaugural induction into the college’s Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society, which honors outstanding junior and senior students majoring in business-related degrees.

Students in the top 20 percent of their class are eligible to become members of the international honor society, which encourages and recognizes the accomplishments among students of business, management, and administration. The honor society also encourages and promotes aspirations toward personal and professional improvement, and a life distinguished by honorable service to humanity.

The eight LC State students inducted included Keoug hof Sandpoint, Jaime Arkle of Spirit Lake, Wash., Jessica Beplate of Lewiston, Jamie Boothe of Cataldo, William Capwell of Clarkston, Cooper Haney of Hauser, Sarah Martin of Coeur d'Alene, and KayLee Rosgen of Clarkston.

The induction ceremony was held online because of the COVID-19 pandemic. LC State Dean of Professional Studies Fred Chilson, Business Division chair Luther Maddy, and business professor Rachel Kaitz spoke about the three qualities and commitments inductees are expected to pursue and the meaning of each. Those three qualities are wisdom, honor, and meaningful aspirations.

Along with Keough, Beplate, Boothe, and Haney will graduate today during LC State’s virtual commencement ceremony. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. and can be watched live online through Facebook.
