Alpha Chi Induction Ceremony

May 2, 2010, on a beautiful spring Sunday, Peru State College held its annual Alpha Chi Induction Ceremony.

This year, a record 52 students accepted the invitation to become a member of Alpha Chi, and 16 students attended the elegant ceremony held this year in the Live Oak Room of the Student Center in front of a crowded room of proud parents, spouses, fellow students, and friends.

You will find photographs from the ceremony posted on line; feel free to download individual photographs or the entire album in one click. Or watch a carousel slide show of the event.

To learn more about Alpha Chi visit the organization's web page. In addition, take a look at the information from the 2010 conference in Little Rock on this blog and the Alpha Chi Convention Report.

In my role as Chapter Sponsor and Alpha Chi National Council Member, I conducted the induction with the help of my colleagues Dr. Spencer Davis (History) and Dr. John Hnida (Biology).

And this year Peru State College's new President, Dr. Dan Hanson, took part in the ceremony.

Underscoring the college's successful on-campus and on-line programs, this year's members pursue degrees not only in Nebraska, but also in eleven other states and Canada.

The beauty and elegance of the ceremony always impresses me, from the multi-
colored candles to the society's motto, "You shall know the truth, and truth shall make you free."

I was especially pleased to see perhaps the largest crowd the ceremony has ever attracted, a fitting way to honor these scholars, and on a day of exceptional beauty.

This year, the following students will serve as officers for the PSC chapter: President, Mary Van Winkle; Vice President, Rachael Marion; Treasurer, Lori Juhlin; Secretary, Lisa Sanders; and the Student Representative will go to this year's National Conference in San Diego in March 2011.

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
