Earlier this year, Alpha Chi welcomed six new officers who are representing the organization at Shorter University during the 2014-15 academic year. Sarah Geil, of Kennesaw, Ga., is serving as president. Morgan Morris, of Snellville, Ga., was named vice president. Isabella Baldacci, of Norfolk, Neb., was named secretary, and Alexis Gorman, of Fort Payne, Ala., serves as the honor society’s treasurer. Emily Kendall, of Summerville, Ga., and Taylor Proctor, of Calhoun, Ga., were named directors.
Alpha Chi Faculty Sponsor, Dean of College of Arts and Sciences, and Shorter University Associate Provost Dr. Kathi Vosevich said Shorter’s Alpha Chi chapter has been a Star Chapter for five years in a row. This award honors chapters for a number of criteria including inducting members locally, attending and presenting at the annual convention, nominating at least one representative for a national Alpha Chi fellowship or scholarship, and sponsoring on-campus programs that promote scholarship.
“I am very proud of this group of officers and students, and we have great plans for this year’s service and academic projects,” Dr. Vosevich said. “These students epitomize ‘making scholarship effective for good,’ which is the Alpha Chi motto.”
