University of Wisconsin Oshkosh College of Business students Justin Garrett, a human resource management major from Wautoma, and Jessica Sibilsky, an accounting and finance major from Sturgeon Bay, received scholarships of $1,000 and $500, respectively, from Beta Gamma Sigma, an international honors society for undergraduate business students.
“Justin is an extremely responsible, motivated and talented student,” said Barbara Rau, a professor of human resource management at UW Oshkosh, of Garrett. “He takes a leadership role and works very well with his teams.”
Sibilsky was chosen for her superior performance in the study of business.
“Jessica is a dedicated and talented learner who easily translates classroom experiences into professional performance,” Joann Cross, a UW Oshkosh accounting professor, said.
The UW Oshkosh chapter competed against 111 other chapters and was one of six chapters selected to receive the outstanding chapter honorable mention scholarship and associated scholarship funds as a one-time special recognition of chapter excellence.
Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is among the highest recognition a business student can receive worldwide. Students must be enrolled in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International.
To be eligible for membership, students also must rank in the upper 10 percent of their junior or senior class or the upper 20 percent of the graduating master’s class.
