2012 Apr 11

Angela Harkins, a senior visual communications major from Blairsville, Ga., was one of twenty-six Reinhardt University students who were inducted into the Georgia Mu chapter of Alpha Chi, a national college honor scholarship society, at the April 1, 2012, ceremony held at the University's Falany Performing Arts Center.

Dr. Catherine B. Emanuel, the Director of the Center for Student Success, was inducted as an honorary member for her outstanding contributions to the chapter and to Reinhardt University.

The 2011-12 Alpha Chi officers Emerald Boggs, Jenna Lee, Bonnie Medford, and Stephanie Summers assisted with the ceremony, along with Dr. Robert Driscoll, the Vice President for Academic Affairs; Dr. Catherine Emanuel, the Director of the Center for Student Success; the Reverend Leigh Martin, the University chaplain; Ms. Susan Naylor, Associate Professor of Music; Dr. Roger Lee, the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students; Dr. Walter May, the Assistant Dean of Students; Dr. Joy Farmer, the chapter sponsor; and Reinhardt alumna and Alpha Chi member Hannah Hise, who provided the special music.

The objectives of Alpha Chi are to promote and to recognize superior scholarship and those elements of character that make scholarship effective for service. The society, founded on February 22, 1922, has more than 300 chapters in colleges all across the United States and Puerto Rico. Membership, which is limited to no more than 10 percent of juniors, seniors, and graduate school students, encompasses all disciplines and is the highest academic honor that Reinhardt University awards.
