Phi Kappa Phi honor society initiates 102 at Lamar University

The National Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi initiated 102 Lamar University juniors and seniors into membership during the organization’s annual spring ceremony. 

Seniors elected to membership must rank in the upper 10 percent of their graduating class, while second-semester juniors must rank in the upper 7.5 percent of their class.

Lamar’s chapter of Phi Kappa Phi conducted the ceremony April 26 in the University Reception Center of the Mary and John Gray Library.

Chapter President Kevin Dodson welcomed guests, explained membership criteria and presented a history of Lamar Chapter 95, which was chartered in 1965. Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society, Dodson said. Lamar is one of fewer than 300 colleges and universities to have chapters.
