Ten Clarkson University students and two faculty members were inducted into Sigma Nu Tau by Church and three other members of the SNT national board of directors.

The students were selected for this high honor based on outstanding academic achievements in the innovation & entrepreneurship major at Clarkson.

During the ceremony Compeau said, “It is clear that the Reh Center for Entrepreneurship shares the same passion to promote, recognize and reward academic excellence in entrepreneurship in the classroom.” Clarkson provides a broad range of programs and opportunities to students.

Emily Saramak, a charter member, said, “It's great that more business students are being recognized for their entrepreneurial achievements and efforts. Hopefully it will give more students, even non-business majors, more incentive to promote how innovative they can be.”
