Crowe recognized; Wayland students participate at Alpha Chi national convention

PLAINVIEW – Dr. Rebekah Crowe, Professor of History in the Wayland Baptist University’s School of Behavioral and Social Sciences, was honored by Alpha Chi National College Honor Society during the society’s national convention.

Crowe, who serves as adviser for Wayland’s Alpha Chi chapter, was one of six advisers recognized with Distinguished Service Awards during the convention, which was held in Albuquerque, N.M. She was selected for her service to Region 1. Each region nominates an adviser.

Lara Noah, National Executive Director of Alpha Chi, presented Crowe with a clock commemorating the award.

“It’s an honor to recognize these advisers’ service,” Noah said, noting the society’s “heartfelt appreciation for the dedication and commitment they have shown through their work with Alpha Chi.”

Also attending the national convention were Wayland students Sarah Manchee and Elizabeth Wirth. Manchee presented part of her honors thesis at the convention, while Wirth served as student delegate for Wayland’s chapter. In all Region 1 and national Alpha Chi business issues, Wirth served as the chapter’s voting member.
