Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society Inductees

October 27, 2014

Angelo State University’s chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi (PKP) national honor society will induct its fall 2014 class of 67 students during a special initiation ceremony at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 3, in the Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive.

PKP is one of the nation’s most prestigious academic honor societies for students in all academic disciplines. Invitations to join PKP are extended to juniors in the top 7.5 percent of their class and to seniors and graduate students in the top 10 percent of their class. ASU received its charter for a local chapter in the spring of 2013.

In advance of the Nov. 3 initiation ceremony, Dr. Blake Hightower of the ASU curriculum and instruction faculty will perform a PKP heralding ceremony at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 30, in the University Center. During the ceremony, he will read the names of the inductees and strike a gong after each one to herald their pending entrance into PKP.

Both the induction ceremony and heralding ceremony are open free to the public.
