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 seventh 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 great honor and reflects a great deal of hard work by our students,” said Dr. Clint Young, assistant professor of history and faculty advisor of the Alpha Nu Zeta chapter. “It demonstrates that our history students are some of the best students out there.”

Criteria for Best Chapter Awards are based on student academic excellence, scholarship, conference attendance and participation, new membership, and chapter service projects. Among chapter activities in the past year, students attended the Phi Alpha Theta regionalmeeting at Arkansas State University in March and renovated a conference room for the UAM School of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

As part of the award, the chapter will receive a grant to purchase books for the UAM Library.

For more information, contact Dr. Clint Young at (870) 460-1547.
