Hackettstown, N.J, June 29, 2017 – Glenn Allen, a student from Cresskill, N.J., was inducted into the New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association (NJCBAA) Honor Society at the New Jersey State House recently. This award is bestowed upon students who are in the top 1% GPA of the total population of business students at their institution.

Allen, who has just completed his junior year at Centenary, has played Baseball for the institution and was a member of the Sports Management Association. When he graduates, he would like to pursue a career in the finance area of the music industry.

“This was such a wonderful honor,” says Allen. “I worked really hard on my academics and it paid off. I am really thankful for all the people in my life that made it possible. My family, friends, mentors and professors have all shaped the person that I am today.”

NJCBAA was first established a statewide honor society for students studying business at both the two and four year colleges in New Jersey. The society was proposed by Dean Karen Boroff of the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University. Professor Emeritus of Centenary University, Robert Quade, along with Dean Fred Champlin of Ramapo College, Dr. Nate Himmelstein of Essex County College and Dean Edward Schoen at Rowan University also made the founding of this society possible.

“I am so pleased that Glenn was honored in this manner,” says Cheryl Veronda, Professor of Business and Chair of the Business Department at Centenary University, who inducted Glenn into the honor society at the ceremony in Trenton. “He is an excellent representation of Centenary University and I am certain that we will see many other accomplishments from him.” Centenary business professors Dana Benbow, Joseph Downey, and Michael Russell were also in attendance at the NJCBAA award ceremony to see Glenn achieve this honor.

Founded in 1867 by the Newark Conference of the United Methodist Church, Centenary University’s academic program integrates a solid liberal arts foundation with a strong career orientation. This mix is designed to provide an educational experience that prepares students to succeed in the increasingly global and interdependent world.

Centenary University’s main campus is located in Hackettstown, N.J., with its equestrian facility in Washington Township (Morris County).  The Centenary School of Professional Studies offers degree programs in two locations: Parsippany and Edison, and at corporate sites throughout New Jersey.
