MONTICELLO — The University of Arkansas-Monticello’s chapter of Alpha Chi, the national collegiate honor society, was recently selected for the ninth consecutive year to receive Star Chapter status for 2013-14, according to Kate Stewart, professor of English and UAM chapter sponsor.

The Star Chapter designation honors chapters for meeting several criteria, including sending a faculty sponsor and student member to the annual national or regional convention, having a student presenter at 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. UAM’s Alpha Chi chapter was one of 47 nationwide to receive Star Chapter recognition.

“This is a wonderful honor for both the Alpha Chi chapter and the institution,” said Dr. Jimmie Yeiser, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. “I commend the student members who value academic achievement and their faculty sponsors who have set as an annual goal of achieving this honor. My congratulations to everyone involved.”

Alpha Chi was founded in 1922 and includes students from all academic disciplines. Membership is limited to the top 10 percent of a university’s juniors and seniors. UAM’s chapter was founded in 1956.
