Rebecca Kasun, a junior Accounting major at the Shields School of Business, from Altoona was named a 2018 Sigma Beta Delta Fellowship Award Recipient. She is the first Saint Francis University student ever selected for this prestigious academic award.
Dr. James Logue, Professor of Accounting and Finance, is the Chapter Advisor on campus and Ms. Tabor Schilling, the Shields School of Business Administrative Assistant, is the Campus Sigma Beta Delta Chapter Coordinator for Special Events.
Rebecca Kasun is everything we want in a Saint Francis University student," Dr. Logue said. "She is intelligent, hard-working, mature, caring, and compassionate. Rebecca truly puts service to others ahead of herself."
Kasun was previously inducted into the National Business Honor Society based on her strong academic merit. Besides being a member of the Saint Francis University Sigma Beta Delta Chapter, Kasun is an active member of the SFU Enactus team.
"Outside of the classroom, business clubs like Enactus teach us how to be professional, network, and give back to the community," Kasun said. "All of these components make students feel like their learning experience is the best it can possibly be."
Kasun credits the Shields School of Business—as well as strong Franciscan values—for her success and drive.
"The professors and staff genuinely care about their students and do everything in their power to shape us into the best business men and women we can be, while also incorporating the core values that Saint Francis taught us."
