AdmissionsConsultants President David Petersam served as keynote speaker at the University of Maryland on Sunday to inductees of a national honor society and spoke about leadership and education. More than 400 people attended the event including parents and siblings of inductees.
Based on his own business experience, Petersam provided advice on success in regard to education. "With each dream – whether it's your career direction or higher learning – there are often many steps needed to make it a reality. This society is a big part of your initial steps and has the resources to help you move confidently forward in your life."
Petersam concluded his speech by emphasizing the importance of active involvement beyond the induction event, stating, "This is an organization of leadership, opportunity, and service. It is here to help you lay the foundation of what you need to find success in your life. Let the opportunities presented help you grow and prepare for the quest of reaching – and achieving – your dreams."
After Petersam's speech students were introduced and sworn in with an oath of membership. The society is one of the largest organizations at the University of Maryland with more than 650 new inductees
each year. Membership is by invitation only and is based on GPA or class rank.
