Other inductees include Chelsea Curry of Ayden, environmental health; Neil Krajewski of Washington, N.C., finance; Linda Mason of Vanceboro, nursing; LaNika Wright of Winterville, nursing, and Elizabeth Mozingo of Farmville.
These local students are among approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation.
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.
Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine and headquartered in Baton Rouge, La., Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest all-discipline honor society. The society has chapters on more than 300 college and university campuses in North America and the Philippines. Its mission is “To recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others.”
