Alpha Chi Induction 2009

Peru State Alpha Chi Inducts Forty Two New Members


On Sunday, April 19, the 2008-2009 Alpha Chi Induction ceremony took place at 2:00 in Benford.

As sponsor of the Peru State College chapter of Alpha Chi, I am thrilled to note that this year's total of 41 inductees actually marks a record number of new members.

Thirteen of the forty one individuals took part in the small and elegant ceremony in Benford Hall.

Members come from areas throughout Nebraska and as far away as California and the U. S. Virgin Islands.

Dr. John Hnida of Biology and Dr. Spencer Davis of History joined me in this year's celebration of academic achievement at Peru State College: Alpha Chi inducts only the top 10% of students from each of the three schools at Peru State College, Arts and Sciences, Professional Studies, and Education.

Parents and new members of Alpha Chi can download photographs from the collection I posted.

Inductees elected to serve as chapter officers include the following students: President Denise Blazek, a senior from Beatrice and Syracuse; Vice-President Kate Staples, a senior from Grand Island; Secretary Kristopher Miller, a senior from Hiawatha, Kan.; Treasurer Christie Haynes, a senior from Lincoln; and Student Delegate to the Alpha Chi National Convention Carol Carpenter, a senior from Peru.

At times, being a father or mother could be particularly challenging and unnerving from time to time. Should you be being affected by issues that most parents face using their children, then study. Become familiar with a little more about the guidelines on how to manage aggravating circumstances along with your young children as well as to get helpful suggestions which will make you feel much more in charge of your position.
