The Angelo State University chapter of the Alpha Chi National Honor Society on March 25 inducted 24 new members during a virtual ceremony.

 

According to their website, the Alpha Chi National Honor Society is a coeducational honor society founded in 1922 to promote and recognize academic excellence among college students of any discipline. Additionally, it seeks to encourage a spirit of service and leadership and to nurture the elements of character that make scholarship effective for good. 

 

“It’s not for self-glorification, it’s . . . owning what you’ve done.”  Dr. Karl Havlak, the lead faculty advisor for the ASU chapter and secretary for the organization’s national council, said.

 

The new inductees are either in the top 10% of the senior class or top 7.5% of the junior class in order to qualify to join the program. The students come from a variety of different majors, such as animal science and history. They also come from different parts of the world such as the U.S., Belgium and South Korea.

 

The society offers new members multiple opportunities for scholarships and positions as national officers. In addition, inducted students receive recognition for their academic achievements and have the chance to make connections with fellow inductees.

 

“I’m looking forward to meeting similar, like-minded people with good ambition, good pride in what they’re doing and just reaching out and making those connections with other honors students and seeing what opportunities are out there,” Jazlynn Lewis, one of the newly inducted students, said.
