Spotlight #28: Profiling Some of our Members

Eta Beta's membership is defined by diversity. In the chapters 45-year history, we have initiated some 345 members; and those members work (and have worked) across a range of sectors, from the National Football League to NASA, from doctors to college professors, from real state to personal training to entrepreneurship.


In this post, we highlight a few of our recent chapter initiates, each of whom reflects Eta Beta's legacy of diversity.
