For the second year in a row, the Sigma Beta Delta Fellowship was awarded to a student at Dickinson State University. This year, it was given to Jessica Kirchoffner, a senior business major.

Each year, the Sigma Beta Delta Fellowship program awards 20 fellowships, ranging from $1,000 – $1,500, to qualifying members nationwide. These fellowships are for students’ use in their academic studies. Annually, more than 250 local chapters nominate one qualifying Sigma Beta Delta member for the awards.

Chair of the School of Business and Entrepreneurship, Dr. Holly Gruhlke, notes, “SBD is an international honor society for students in business, administration, and management that seeks to recognize scholarship among students while promoting personal and professional improvement and encouraging service to others.”

“I have always enjoyed learning new concepts, learning how to adapt and acquire skills, present new ideas, and communicate and work with people of every diversity” said Kirchoffner. “Being asked to join the Sigma Beta Delta was an honor. At that point, it made me realize how much I was being rewarded and accomplished. To be able to represent not only Dickinson State University but Sigma Beta Delta is an honor that will carry with me in the future.”

Kirchoffner graduated with a degree in Human Resource Management in the summer of 2019 and has been accepted to the Master of Entrepreneurship program at DSU.
