Chatham students were recently inducted into academic honor societies at various colleges and universities.

Kathleen Criss was recently initiated into The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Criss is pursuing a degree in Athletic Training at University of Delaware.

Criss is among approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.

Sonia Boyer, a graduate of Chatham High, is now a member of Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society at Bucknell University.

Aaron Harmaty, History major, was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society at The College of New Jersey.

Phi Beta Kappa is the nation's oldest academic honor society, founded by five students at the College of William and Mary in 1776 during the American Revolution. There are only 283 Phi Beta Kappa chapters in the country, and TCNJ's chapter is one of only four in the state of New Jersey.

Belinda Huang, who is majoring in Writing, Literature and Publishing at Emerson College, was one of 53 students inducted into the Gold Key Honor Society on April 27.

Students inducted into the Gold Key Society meet stringent criteria for academic achievement. Gold Key members must have completed 48 credits with the College; juniors are in the top 5 percent of their class, and seniors are in the top 10 percent. At the ceremony, inductees received certificates, and seniors also received a gold sash to wear at Commencement.

Morgan Buckley was among the 63 University of Scranton students inducted into Alpha Epsilon Delta, the national honor society for health pre-professional students. For induction into the honor society, students must have completed at least three semesters of pre-professional health work, have a minimum grade point average of 3.2, and a science grade point average of 3.2 or higher. The University's chapter of the honor society was established in 1976.

Buckley is a senior in the Panuska College of Professional Studies at the Jesuit university.
