Local residents named to collegiate honor society

December 24, 2013

Two area residents have been inducted into the honor society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.

Vickie Smith, Tonganoxie, was initiated at Kansas State University; Cassidy Bristol, McLouth, was initiated at Washburn University.

Smith and Bristol are among about 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.
