BAPUAB’s student chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, an international honorary and service organization for accounting, finance and information system students and professionals, has been granted “Superior Status” for its academic and public service work.

All Beta Alpha Psi chapters are evaluated annually on their service to members, campus, community and profession. Superior chapters must meet total minimum hours of professional and service activities in order to qualify for the award.

The chapter, which was led by Collat School of Business faculty adviser and accounting instructor Eddie Nabors, will receive a $275 award sponsored by the KPMG Foundation dedicated to fostering quality education in accounting.

“Under the leadership of Eddie Nabors, UAB’s Delta Chi chapter has far exceeded the baseline requirements of Beta Alpha Psi and has excelled in the areas of academics, professionalism and leadership,” said Beta Alpha Psi President Shawn Harter.

Collat School of Business Dean Eric Jack, Ph.D., praised Nabors for his excellent leadership and dedication to Collat’s students.

“I also commend our students for their engagement and service to our community,” Jack said. “These are excellent examples of engagement and impact.”
