Rockford University’s has a fantastic history dating back to when stagecoaches were still being used to settle this land, and Sigma Beta Delta was happy to become part of that history when SBD installed our 400th chapter at Rockford.  Twenty Four of their brightest students were recognized for their academic achievement and challenged by SBD to live a life of honor, wisdom, and aspirations.

The President of the University, Robert L. Head, Ph.D., should know all about the positive roll that honor society recognition can do for a person.  He was inducted as a faculty member at Urbana University in 2002.
