Honor societies induct new members 

November 23, 2010

PLAINVIEW – In brief ceremonies held in the Gates Hall auditorium, two honor societies inducted new members at Wayland Baptist University.

Alpha Chi national honor society added five new members, while Psi Chi, the national honor society for psychology, added two members. Alpha Chi is open to the top 10 percent of upperclassmen at Wayland, and not all who are invited to join opt to participate. The membership recognizes academic scholarship and character of students who strive for high achievement during their undergraduate journey at Wayland. Psi Chi is open to the top psychology majors and minors at WBU, also based on academic achievement.

Inductees into the Alpha Eta chapter of Alpha Chi included Thomas Estes, a junior from Rising Star; Jake Miser, a senior from Leila Lake; Tad Nixon, a senior from Plainview; Corin Olivas, a junior from Hobbs, N.M.; and Carly Sheumaker, a junior from Lubbock.

Psi Chi inductees included senior Janna Bennett of Plainview and Allison Featherston of Plainview. Both are psychology majors.

Dr. Perry Collins, professor of counseling and psychology, serves as advisor for both honor societies.
