Graduate counseling honor society honors new members

 The Rho Omega Chapter of Chi Sigma Iota, an international honor society for graduate counseling students, will hold an induction ceremony Feb. 10 for its new honorees. Keynote speaker will be Dr. Tom Sweeney, the founding president of the chapter.

The ceremony will begin with a dinner at 7:15 p.m. and conclude with Sweeney and the induction ceremony in the Mendenhall Greatroom.

This will be Sweeney’s first trip to ECU’s campus and his last year with the chapter. He will speak on professional advocacy.

“This induction ceremony will honor students who have provided good services and will continue to provide good services to their clients,” said Mary Crozier, assistant professor in the substance abuse and clinical counseling program.

“These students have the knowledge, skills and professionalism needed to succeed in this field,” she said.

Rho Omega Chapter comprises two ECU departments: counseling education in the College of Education and rehabilitation studies in the College of Allied Health Sciences.

Chi Sigma Iota was founded in 1985 and involves monthly meetings, fundraisers and service projects intended to serve the substance abuse population. To join, graduate students must have a 3.5 GPA and one or more terms of full time counselor education study.
