MONTICELLO — The University of Arkansas-Monticello’s chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, a national history honor society, recently received a Best Chapter Award for the sixth consecutive year.

   UAM’s Alpha Nu Zeta chapter of Phi Alpha Theta received the Nels R. Cleven Award, presented to chapters that have won the Best Chapter Award five or more times. The Alpha Nu Zeta chapter has won the Best Chapter Award each academic year since its founding in 2007.

   “This is a wonderful honor and a positive reflection on both our students and faculty,” said John Kyle Day, associate professor of history and chapter co-sponsor. “By winning the Cleven Award, we are joining some elite company.”

   Other colleges and universities with Phi Alpha Theta chapters that have received the Cleven Award include Cal State-Fullerton, the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, Oklahoma Christian University, and Union University.

   Criteria for Best Chapter Awards are based on student academic excellence, scholarship, conference attendance and participation, new membership and chapter services projects.
