Beacon Wealth Management CEO Mark S. Germain, MBA, CFP®, ADPA®, was inducted as an honorary member of the Delta Mu Delta International Honor Society by Southern Connecticut State University School of Business on May 2.
Delta Mu Delta, founded in 1913, is a prominent business honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence of students at qualifying colleges and universities. A 3.8 grade point average is one of the requirements for students to become members of the Society.
“Mark, through his own earlier academic achievements, success in business and selfless commitment to the School of Business here is a model of the kind of leader we hope and expect our students will become,” said Dr. Ellen D. Durnin, Dean of the SCSU School of Business, a presenter of the award. She was joined by Dr. Wafeek H. Abdelsayed, Faculty Advisor of the Zeta Nu chapter of the international society, in honoring Mark.
An alumnus of Southern Connecticut, Mark currently serves as Chairman of the university’s Business Advisory Council. That body consists of business leaders from the region who provide advice and assistance on curriculum enhancement, employment and scholarship opportunities, accreditation matters, and fundraising strategies.
On the occasion of the award, Mark reminded the 53 students also being inducted into the Society that the honor “is only the beginning” of a path towards becoming a generation of new leaders. “Success can follow you as a Southern grad, and now as a member of the esteemed Delta Mu Delta International Honor Society,” he said.
“I try to maintain the spirit of Delta Mu Delta today by holding the people who work with us at Beacon Wealth Management to similarly high standards of achievement, in their service to our clients,” Mark later said.
