NEW HONOR SOCIETY MEMBERS
Salem’s Honor Society is dedicated to recognizing and
encouraging scholarship at Salem College. It’s mem
bership is limited to juniors and seniors of superior
academic achievement who have completed a specific
amount of work and maintained a 3.6 average.
This year’s members are;
Lois Hicks '
Jennie Gray Mauney
Susan A. Miller
Several changes have been made in the membership
requirements and times of induction into the Salem
Honor Society. Because the newly organized freshman
honor society, Alpha Kappa, will include freshmen and
sophomores, the Honor Society is now open to only
juniors, and seniors. The academic requirement for
juniors has been set at a 3.6 average for 16 courses and a
3.6 average for seniors who have completed 24 courses.
The induction into membership will occur in the fall
term of the junior or senior year. Members have
previously been inducted in the spring term, but fall
induction will give more continuity to the group and
strengthen their identities as academic leaders.
The academic year 1978-79 will be an interim period
during which the changes to take place. In order not to
penalize any student currently eligible for membership
in the Salem Honor Society, members will be inducted
twice this year. Next year members will be inducted in
the fall term only, using the new standards which have
been accepted for induction procedure.
