Three students from Effingham County recently were initiated into Armstrong State University’s chapter of Phi Kappa Phi honor society.
Earning the honor were Michael Brannen of Guyton, Kelsey Zittrouer of Guyton and Katherine Babineau of Rincon.
Phi Kappa Phi 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.
Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society. It has chapters on more than 300 college and university campuses in North America and the Philippines.
