Psi Chi Honor Society Inducts Ten USAO Students


CHICKASHA – Ten students have joined the ranks of Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in psychology, at the University of Science and Arts. At a special reception Nov. 13, the students joined faculty and family as each was inducted into the elite society.

Dr. Tina Winn, associate professor of psychology and chair of the division of business and social science, said the students deserve the recognition.

“It is wonderful to have the opportunity to honor these students,” Winn said. “They have worked hard to achieve the standards necessary to become a member of Psi Chi, and I expect great things in the future from each of these inductees.”

According to Winn, Psi Chi was founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating and maintaining excellence in scholarship and advancing the science of psychology. Undergraduates who are elected to Psi Chi must rank in the upper 35% of their class in general scholarship. They also must demonstrate superior scholarship in psychology, earning a minimum GPA of 3.00 in psychology courses.

The following students were inducted into Psi Chi:

Nowata psychology junior Blakely Adams, Noble junior Jessica Anthony, Marlow early childhood development freshman Heather Broyles, Indiahoma psychology senior Kacye Godwin, Duncan communication senior Garrett Haviland, Norman psychology senior Amanda Henderson, Chickasha art freshman Chelsea Huddleston, Chickasha psychology junior Barry McCoy, Talala psychology junior Sarah Parker and Pryor psychology senior Nicole Yager.
