The annual Sigma Iota Epsilon induction ceremony thrilled parents as much as it did students.
“Recognitions such as these are important because they not only reward hard work and commitment; they also build confidence and self-esteem,” said Richard DeAngelo, whose son Anthony ’16 was honored as a new member of the national honorary and professional management fraternity. Anthony, an accounting and Spanish major and sprinter on the men’s track and field team, has also been named to the Northeast-10 Academic Honor Roll.
The DeAngelos, from Stoneham, value all that the Girard School education provides.
“As parents we recognize that the Girard School is preparing Anthony well with experienced, professional professors and state-of-the-art technology, both of which are crucial to the learning environment,” Richard DeAngelo added.
“Anthony will be able to participate in programs, workshops and other professional opportunities that will benefit him socially, giving him a chance to meet new people and make contacts he will use later on,” said Andrea DeAngelo.
Anthony’s career goal is to be a CPA who also invests in real estate, she said.
“As a parent, it was proud moment to watch my daughter be inducted into the SIE honor society,” said Joanne Mermelstein, whose daughter Kathryn ’15 was inducted.
“To see your child’s hard work in the classroom being recognized is a very rewarding experience,” said Mermelstein, from North Andover, the college’s senior director of alumni and constituent relations.
“Kate has done well, worked hard and understands the investment and value of her education. I believe it sets the bar and provides students with a goal to reach for.”
