Posted by bgsuenglish on April 10, 2009

The Department of English is very proud to offer congratulations to the following Creative Writing and Literature majors recently inducted into the Xi of Ohio Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.

This year’s initiates include:

Literature: Jacquelyn Dolezal; Cara Hanson (double major with Integrated Language Arts); Christie Collins; Claire McBroom; Kelley Mohr.

Creative Writing: Rachael Sample; Terry Streetman.

Founded at the College of William and Mary on December 5, 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest academic honor society. As the Phi Beta Kappa webpage notes: “The ideal Phi Beta Kappan has demonstrated intellectual integrity, tolerance for other views, and a broad range of academic interests. Each year, about one college senior in a hundred, nationwide, is invited to join Phi Beta Kappa.”

Congratulations to Jacquelyn, Cara, Rachael, Terry, Christie, Claire, and Kelley on this prestigious accomplishment!
