Fall 2013 KBD Induction at Metropolitan Community College (Nebraska)MCC’s Kappa Beta Delta chapter held its annual induction ceremony Dec. 12, welcoming 20 new members to the international honor society for students pursuing associate degrees in business management, marketing and administration. To be eligible for membership, students must have at least 24 credit hours and a 3.5 GPA.

Honorary inductee Nancy Livingston, director of family development services at Eastern Nebraska Community Action Partnership, gave the keynote address, detailing her involvement in Kappa Beta Delta’s recent service-learning leadership project. Through a partnership with ENCAP, students developed a market analysis, business plan and budget for a new North Omaha initiative: Mini-Pros, which doubles as an after-school program and screen printing business.

Mini-Pros supports part-time employment for at-risk youth, promoting creativity and entrepreneurial acumen. Kappa Beta Delta participants were able to flex their teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills and launch a business from the ground up. "Students now have a compelling story to tell during a job interview,” said David Wilhelm, faculty advisor and business management instructor. Students also earned course credit and a $1,000 stipend, made possible by an MCC Foundation Inspiring Innovation mini-grant.

Kappa Beta Delta (Phi chapter) was established at MCC in 1999 and has more than 350 lifetime members. The organization encourages and promotes personal and professional improvement and a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind.
