ATHENS, W.Va. – A group of Concord University students and professors were recently inducted into a newly formed chapter of Delta Mu Delta International Honor Society in Business.

“The Department is extremely excited to be able to offer this membership to our deserving, hard-working students,” she said.
During the ceremony, Dr. Robinett and Dr. Davis accepted the charter for the new chapter. Each chapter member received a certificate and membership pin.
