Local residents initiated into honor society at Washburn
Area residents have been initiated into an honor society at Washburn University.
Jill Nitzsche and Travis Adams of McLouth and Gina Stewart of Tonganoxie were inducted into Washburn's Phi Kappa Phi chapter. They are among 32,000 students, faculty professional staff and alumni nationwide to be initiated into the group annually.
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.
Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society.
