Five Students Inducted into National Sport Management Honors Society
Five sport management students from St. John Fisher College were recognized at the annual Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA) Conference, which took place on February 3 in Houston, Texas.
Brandon Smith, Dommie Giacona, Rachel Makowski, and Adam Drake traveled to Houston and were formally inducted into the Chi Sigma Mu Honor Society (CSM), while at the conference. Ben Conrow, who is currently studying abroad in London, England, was also inducted into the Society.
“Being inducted was very rewarding and reassuring to prove that I can be successful in the sports industry which is dominated by males,” said Giacona. “It is also rewarding for all the hard work that I have done these past four years to get where I am today.”
Students inducted into the honor society represent the best that a sport management program has to offer. They score in the top of their class academically, are involved in professional development, and strive to assist within their campus community.
St. John Fisher College’s sport management program was the first in New York to earn COSMA accreditation. “We are particularly proud of this group for receiving national recognition from such a reputable association,” said Professor Patrick Gordon, director of experiential learning and outreach and interim program director of the M.S. in Sport Management.
The Commission on Sport Management Accreditation is a specialized accrediting body whose purpose is to promote and recognize excellence in sport management education worldwide in colleges and universities at the baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral levels through specialized accreditation.
