The Virginia Zeta Chapter of the Alpha Chi Honor Society at Christopher Newport inducted 88 new members in a virtual ceremony.

Since its charter at Christopher Newport in 1977, Alpha Chi has annually recognized the top 10 percent of juniors, seniors and graduate students in all fields.

Dr. Jay Paul, Honors Program director, has served as Alpha Chi’s sponsor since 1989. The grade point average to be invited when Alpha Chi was launched was a 3.25; it is now a 3.8 for juniors and seniors. “These inductees are an elite and accomplished group,” Paul said.

The induction ceremony was held in an online format with chapter president Lauren Proulx ‘21 welcoming the families and friends of the inductees, along with Paul and another faculty sponsor, Dr. Shelia Greenlee of the Department of Psychology.

Dr. Lynn Shollen, chair of the Department of Leadership and American Studies, was the speaker at the event, telling the inductees: “You deserve a hearty congratulations for earning your way into such a prestigious honor society. For a long time now you’ve worked extremely hard, sacrificed much along the way, drew on support from others who care about you and courageously grasped opportunities.”
