Nelson inducted into honor society

Catherine Nelson, of Morgan Hill, was inducted to the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest all-discipline collegiate honor society. Nelson was initiated to the society at Purdue University. 

Nelson is one of about 25,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year, says a press release from the society. Membership is by invitation only and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. 

Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 under the leadership of undergraduate student Marcus L. Urann who had a desire to create a different kind of honor society: one that recognized excellence in all academic disciplines. Today, the Society has chapters on more than 325 campuses in the United States, its territories and the Philippines. Its mission is “To recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others.”
