Several River Parish residents 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:
• Valerie Roussel of Gramercy, initiated at Southeastern Louisiana University
• Zoe Johnson of LaPlace, initiated at University of New Orleans
• Ariel Fitzgerald of Luling, initiated at University of New Orleans
• Kellie Brady of Reserve, initiated at Southeastern Louisiana University
These residents are among approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year.
Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter.
Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, 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.
