Two local students recently were initiated into a prestigious honor society
Courtney Torneden, Ottawa, and Destinee LeVota, Pleasanton, were inducted in Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.
Phi Kappa Phi inducts annually approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni. The society has chapters on more than 300 select colleges and universities in North America and the Philippines.
Membership is by invitation only to the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students and 7.5 percent of juniors. Faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction also qualify. The Society’s mission is “To recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others.”
