On February 4, the Tusculum College Psi Chi Chapter inducted six new members in to its organization. Psi Chi, an international honor society with 600,000 members, exists to “encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology.”
New inductees included Victoria Hill, a senior from Moorestown, N.J.; Brianna (B.W.) Werder, Tiffany Rednour, a sophomore from Mohawk, a sophomore from New Market, Ala.; Zoë Holcomb from Knoxville, Bailey Lawson, a junior from Max Meadows, Va.; and Hannah Lefler, a sophomore from Chapel Hill.
Members of Psi Chi are selected for extraordinary accomplishment in psychology, ranking in at the top 35 percent of their class and maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA in their major or minor in psychology.
An estimated 30 students, faculty and staff attended the event to support the newly inducted members. New members signed the official Tusculum College Psi Chi roll, which maintains the names of all Tusculum College Psi Chi members since the chapter was formed in May 2012. Members of the Tusculum College Psychology Department faculty were on hand to congratulate the new inductees on this milestone.
