NSU honors 79 spring initiates of Rho Theta Sigma

(Tahlequah, Oklahoma) -- Northeastern State University’s oldest honor society, Rho Theta Sigma, welcomed an assembly of 79 spring initiates during its spring banquet March 23.

Keynote speaker, Dr. Kristopher Copeland, shared four important life lessons with the new initiates. He discussed the importance of asking questions, finding a mentor, listening and being willing to push oneself.

Established on the Tahlequah campus in the 1920s, Rho Theta Sigma honors students with high achievements in all disciplines. It currently possesses in excess of 5,000 members.

These initiates, from multiple majors, graduate and undergraduate colleges, and diverse collegiate backgrounds, have all met the requirements of a 3.4 GPA for two full-time semesters or a 3.6 GPA for one full-time semester and a dedication to life-time membership and commitment to the organization’s principles and codes.

Officers elected at the Spring Initiation for the 2017-18 academic year include: Preston Patrick, president; Courtney Langley, vice president; and Kelsey Kellogg, secretary. Dr. Daniel Hansen Memorial Scholarships were awarded to Kelsey Combs, Katie Easter, Stacey Murray and Emily Popp.
