Sixty-one business majors at Northern Essex Community College were inducted into the college's Beta Omicron chapter of Alpha Beta Gamma (ABG), an international business honor society, on Wednesday April 28.
In order to be recommended for the honor society, students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average and display qualities of good citizenship and good moral character.
Two student speakers, Michael Addorisio of Plaistow, NH and Suzanne Bresnahan of Haverhill, were selected by their professors to address the group.
Born in Salem, Mass., and having graduated from Peabody Veterans Memorial High School, Addorisio is enrolled in the accounting option at NECC. He lives in Plaistow, N.H., with his wife and three children. He plans to transfer to Babson College, Southern New Hampshire University, or Bentley College. His hobbies include golfing, tennis, umpiring baseball games, and he also officiates at basketball games.
Born in Colomo, Mich., Bresnahan graduated from Lafayette High School in St. Louis, Mo. She currently resides in Haverhill with her husband and three children. She is an accounting major at NECC. Her hobbies include reading, cooking, and going to the beach with her family.
Three years ago, Beta Omicron Chapter established an award called the "Muller & Norton Outstanding Leadership Award". This award was named for Sheila Muller and Pamela Norton who made numerous contributions to the growth and development of this organization.
