Mount Ida names 2018 Honor Societies Inductees

On Sunday, February 25 nearly 100 Mount Ida students, faculty members, and staff were inducted into six honor societies at the College. With fellow students, family, and friends in attendance, Provost Ronald Akie offered introductory remarks, followed by a welcome from President Barry Brown.

Recipients of the awards were then asked to come to the stage to be recognized as Mount Ida College Honors recipients. The first group were named official members of the Alpha Chi Zeta chapter, a national honor society that was founded in 1922 to promote academic excellence, scholarship, and exemplary character among college and university students.

The next group was welcomed into the Phi Beta Delta for International Scholars, Delta Sigma Chapter. The goals of the society are to recognize scholarly achievement of international students, scholars, and U.S. students who have studied abroad, and faculty and staff who are involved in international activities. They were followed by new members in the Phi Theta Kappa Xi Nu Chapter, which recognizes scholarly achievement in international education.

New members of the Pi Sigma Eta Alpha Omega Chapter for Funeral Service Education were then introduced in the ceremony. This Honor Fraternity’s purpose is to promote fellowship, and individual and collective efforts toward a better understanding of the funeral service profession. This society was followed by students who were named to Sigma Beta Delta, which recognizes scholarship and accomplishments among students of business, management, and administration.

The last group were named to the Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) Biological Sciences Chapter, a national honor society dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of the biological sciences among undergraduates.

Inductees and guests were then treated to a dessert reception to celebrate all the honorees recognition as the scholars of Mount Ida College in 2018.
