The following area students were recently initiated into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines:
- Katharine Truesdale of Cranberry Isles, at the University of Maine.
- Elizabeth Duncombe of Deer Isle, at the University of Maine.
- Anna Olsen of Ellsworth, at the University of Maine.
- Patrick Moroney of Sedgwick, at the University of Maine.
Approximately 25,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni are initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation only and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.
Courtney Hall of Lamoine was named to the dean’s list for the fall 2021 semester at College of Our Lady of the Elms in Chicopee, Mass.
To qualify, a full-time student must earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher, without incompletes.
