Barton College’s North Carolina Gamma Chapter of Alpha Chi National College Honor Society recently welcomed nine new members into the fold during the spring 2017 induction ceremony.

Students with a GPA of 3.5 or better in the top 10 percent of the junior and senior classes are eligible for induction. The minimum GPA for this induction class was 3.65.

Alpha Chi is a coeducational society whose purpose is to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction. Its name derives from the initial letters of the Greek words meaning truth and character.

As a general honor society, Alpha Chi admits to membership students from all academic disciplines. A member institution, which must be a regionally accredited, baccalaureate degree-granting college or university, may invite to membership no more than the top 10 percent of the junior and senior classes.

Inductees include Mollie Murphy of Castalia; Tiffany Joyce Fowler of Chester, New York; Luke Felts Miller of Franklinton; James Matthew Berry of Goldsboro, Derek Matthew Hamm of Heath, Ohio; Allison Nicole Nixon of Kenly; Rylie M. McIntosh of New Bern; Taylor Lin Baker of Sims; and Tyler Dew of Spring Hope.
