Six students — John Luke Farah, Nate Hudson, Jason Steinfeld, Ian Govert, Victoria Colbeck and Rachel Garner — were inducted into The Iota North Carolina Chapter of the Lambda Alpha National Anthropology Honor Society during a ceremony and dinner held at Johnston Hall on April 20.
Lambda Alpha supports scholarship and research by acknowledging and honoring superior achievement in the discipline among students engaged in the study of anthropology through the annual awarding of student scholarships, research grants, and student paper prizes. The name Lambda Alpha is composed of the initial letters of the Greek words Logos Anthropos (Λογος Ανθροποσ), meaning the study of humankind.
The ceremony was conducted by Lambda Alpha faculty sponsor Assistant Professor of Anthropology Devin Proctor. Congratulations to the newest inductees of Lambda Alpha.
Three students — Ainsley Shan, Kaitlin Vigeant and Amelia Arcaro-Burbage — were also inducted in the Alpha Kappa Delta National Sociology Honor Society in a ceremony conducted by AKD faculty sponsor Dr. Karen Wirth, Lecturer in Sociology.
Alpha Kappa Delta seeks to acknowledge and promote excellence in the scholarship in the study of sociology, the research of social problems, and such other social and intellectual activities as will lead to improvement in the human condition. Alpha Kappa Delta stands for Anthropon Katamanthanein Diakonesein or “to investigate humanity for the purpose of service.”
Congratulations to the newest inductees of Alpha Kappa Delta.
