Students ranking academically in the top 1% of the Hardin-Simmons University campus were inducted into the HSU chapter of the Alpha Chi Honor Society, April 24, 2013.
During a ceremony held in the Holland Health Sciences Building, faculty sponsor Dr. Chris McNair, dean of the Holland School of Sciences and Mathematics, says the juniors and seniors inducted have a grade point average of 3.9 percent or higher and represent all areas of the campus.
McNair tells inductees they are now lifetime members of Alpha Chi, and it is a high distinction to carry with them and to include on their resumes.
Students are awarded a pin and a certificate and sign a book that holds the names of all of the HSU chapter Alpha Chi members since the 1960s.
Students inducted are Christopher Antwiler, an English major from Grapevine, Texas; Kami Bellah, a speech/language pathology major from Merkel, Texas; Raymond Cadjew, a geology major from Abilene; Toni Cowan, chemistry and math major from Hamlin, Texas; Jay Hiller, athletic training major from Arlington, Texas; Nicole Little, senior biology major from Weatherford, Texas; Tessa McGinnis, economics and finance major from Wimberly, Texas; Danielle Morris, a nursing major from Breckenridge, Texas; Joshua Roberson, an exercise science major from Midland, Texas; Travis Sugar, a biology major from Leander, Texas ; and Ethan Tan, a junior English and political science major from Malaysia.
Alpha Chi is a coeducational academic honor society. Since 1922 its purpose has been to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction.
