March 21, 2011 - Shorter University’s Alpha Chi Georgia Theta Chapter has been named a Star Chapter Award Winner for the 2009-2010 academic year. Shorter’s chapter will be presented an award for their achievement at the upcoming 2011 Alpha Chi National Convention in San Diego, Calif.
Shorter’s Alpha Chi chapter was one of 37 chapters selected for this honor nationwide. There are 300 chapters of Alpha Chi in the United States. Chapters earn a Star award by meeting several criteria, including having a faculty sponsor and a student member at the annual national or regional convention; having a student presenter on the convention program; having a national scholarship or fellowship nominee; sponsoring a campus program with an academic emphasis; registering new members; and filing the annual chapter report.
Since being reinvigorated in 2009, Shorter’s chapter has grown exponentially and has inducted more than 90 members. Twenty-eight new invitees will be inducted into the chapter this spring. This year, Shorter will send four Alpha Chi members to the national convention in San Diego, as well as assistant sponsor and Shorter faculty member, Dr. Robert Turner. The student participants include Sarah Boring of Maryville, Tenn., Jocelyn Tow of Calhoun, Laura Watson of Peachtree City, and Cheryl Culp of Rome.
